Said Dr. Campanile: “THE SICILIAN SECRET DIET PLAN is a clinically proven diet and lifestyle plan that helps restore your intrinsic health and increase your longevity. My thanks to both our Agent Alan Morell and our Publisher John Colby who worked tirelessly to see this project to completion. Our goal in writing this book is to present to the reader the truly unique version of the Mediterranean Diet from Sicily. The Mediterranean basin spans 22 countries, and because of the strategic location of Sicily in the center of the Mediterranean, most of these countries at one time or another invaded and occupied Sicily for protracted periods of time. What resulted is that the habits and cuisine of all of these varied civilizations amalgamated and remained embedded as part of the modern Sicilian culture and cuisine. The Sicilian Mediterranean Diet therefore has influences from the Greeks, Ancient Jews, Ancient Romans, Phoenicians (Modern day Lebanon and Syria), Spain, France, Turkey, Normans, Scandinavians, Middle East, Persians, Northern Africa, in addition to other cultures. The “Secret” is the uniqueness of the Sicilian Mediterranean Diet due to these influences.
My wife and I are both physicians and have been recommending Sicilian Mediterranean Diet food to our patients for many years. We decided to write this book in order to expand awareness of the benefits and wonderful taste of this amazing way of eating. The recipes have been carefully selected not only for their health benefits but also for their taste and simplicity of preparation. Anyone can make these recipes even if they have minimal cooking experience.”
Said Dr. Cammarata: “It has been a truly enjoyable experience to co-Authoring THE SICILIAN SECRET DIET PLAN with my husband Giovanni with whom I have shared all my meals for almost 40 years. We have been both committed to share our knowledge using simple and down to earth language to reveal how easy and enjoyable it is to eat nutritious and flavorful food. It is my humble pleasure to be part of others’ journey into health and well-being as my mother’s daughter and as a Sicilian who holds the genetic treasure of centuries of food culture. We believe that learning how to prepare simple and nutritious food is accessible to everyone and it is an easily attainable goal. We are sharing our ancestors’ treasures with pride, knowing that we are disclosing the obvious secret behind health, longevity and an enjoyable life.”
Said Publisher John T. Colby: “When Alan Morell of CMP brought Dr. Campanile and Dr. Cammarata’s book to me, I felt they and THE SICILIAN SECRET DIET PLAN were a wonderful fit for our publishing house. The more we developed the dietary themes in the book, the more we appreciate healthy, common sense, approach used by the authors.”
Said Agent Alan Morell: “It was and is my distinct honor and pleasure to represent my valued clients Dr. Giovanni Campanile and Dr. Sandra Cammarata for the sale to John T. Colby’s prestigious Publishing House, Brick Tower Press. THE SICILIAN SECRET DIET PLAN is credible, powerful and inspiring with narrative, sidebars, charts, stories, meal plans and recipes, you learn and how and why. Our goal is to make THE SICILIAN SECRET DIET PLAN a best seller; distribute Podcasts, directed by Tim Troke, on these fabulous recipes / meal plans and supplements in conjunction with Vitaquest Chairman Keith Frankel.
