Some of the hardest working men and women I have ever worked with were the ones I worked with at sea. “Culinary Arts” at sea is a whole different ball game than on land. It is a multi-billion dollar a year industry that keeps growing. Jobs and employment opportunities are plentiful, especially for those in the hotel and restaurant industry.

The one, the only, Italian Easter Pie, “pizza rustica” also known as Easter “meat pie.” This is a time-honored celebratory Easter dish in Italian culture and has extended to non-Italians alike. This pie is absolutely delicious, filled with some the best of Italian cheeses and meats. What a wonderful way to break the 40 day Christian fast of “Lent” that takes place prior to Easter Sunday and to begin the celebrations of the powerful message of Easter and the rebirth of springtime in nature.
