In the old neighborhood, the Italian section of Borough Park, Brooklyn, the sweet and tough old Italian ladies use Stecchino as an expression meaning “skinny as a toothpick.”

Well, this is what they would call me. These sweet old ladies used to take me into their homes and feed me. My parents would try to stuff me but nothing worked. When I was eight years old, someone got the bright idea to send me to my father’s home town of Altofonte, Sicily for the summer. My Pops had eleven brothers and sisters. One was a better cook than the other. Well, that did it….I was cured! At the end of the summer I came home and was never called Stecchino again.

Buon Apetito!
