Marisa Raniolo Wilkins was born in Sicily and raised in Trieste before migrating to Australia. She has written two books: Sicilian Seafood Cooking and Small Fishy Bites. She also publishes a regular blog, All things Sicilian and more.
Her writing reflects her respect for tradition and local variations, her knowledge of ingredients and complimentary flavours. She likes to share her passion for good food with others.
As a child growing up in Trieste, a seaport north east of Venice, Marisa and her parents would spend their summer holidays with their Sicilian relatives in Ragusa, Augusta and Catania. Through those Mediterranean summers, Marisa began to appreciate Sicilian cuisine from her Sicilian relatives. Over the years, Marisa has regularly travelled throughout Sicily and Italy, adding to her store of first-hand experience.
