The Mediterranean diet and lifestyle have greatly shaped my life. One of my earliest memories is of spending hours at my grandmother's house next door making pasta. When I got older the Italians that lived in the court behind my house taught me how to garden "the old world way". My grandmother made her own sausage and salamis which her brother turned into a family business called: R. Perri's & Son's Sausage it is still widely distributed in New England.
I currently live about an hour outside of New York City in a very rural horse town. My family and I have an organic garden and orchard. We also keep bees, make our own maple syrup, and do cool projects like build canoes. We cross country ski in the winter and hike everyday with our dog in the woods near our home. In the summer we try to get up to the Adirondack Mountains as much as we can to hike, camp, and tool around in our boat… we live a simple nature oriented life.
