The Novel:

From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home
An artful expression of ache and appetite, From Scratch, takes you deep into a personal story of love and loss. Florence, Sicily, and Los Angeles are the picturesque backdrops to Tembi and Saro’s love affair with each other, family, and, of course, food. The eloquent prose beautifully conveys their lasting connection, kept alive with vibrant memories and recipes.
Location: Pelican Hill Resort, exact location is TBD
