Carmelina Pica was born in the small town of Marcianise in Naples, Italy—the city famous for pizza and historic landmarks like Castel Nuovo. She came to America as a young woman with her husband and took up residence on Staten Island where she worked several years at a Salumeria. She cooks the traditional, classical cuisine of Naples. She’s our snow bird spending six months in New York and six months in Florida. Carmelina says that cooking at the Enoteca feels like family to her.

I was born in Casteldaccia in the Province of Palermo. I was raised by my mom and three older brothers. Growing up, my mom taught me many things, among my favorite cooking and embroidering. As a child, I watched my mom cook all of our traditional dishes, and often got to help her.
Then, my mom and I got to share the same experience with my two daughters. Mom always said a woman should know how to cook, and take care of the family.
My family and I, relocated from Sicily in 1982 making New York our new home. It is now with great pleasure that I say: ” I am proud to be part of The Enoteca Maria Grandma’s”. Here, I get to cook some of my most traditional family dishes, and share some of my culture.

NBC’s Mara Schiavocampo reports.
