Our Chef

“A passion for the simple and traditional Italian food”

Real food, like love, takes time, imagination and passion.

Lina Pulitano – Waddell Chef and Owner of Sikilia Catering LLC was born and raised in Tremestieri Etneo, a village on Mount Etna in Sicily.

As a teenager she worked in her parents business, “Bar Fisichella” during the summer months.  Here she helped create Sicilian delicacies like la tavola calda (arancini, pizzette etc), pasticcini (pastries), and her parents’ signature Gelato and Granita.

She moved to Arizona in 1986 and soon discovered that the things she had grown up with and taken for granted were not available. Throughout the years she had embarked on various home-based businesses; she’s made homemade pasta for an upscale restaurant in Scottsdale and managed her own catering business “La Spiga”.

She took a leave of absence to raise her two boys Scotty and Alex but continued to cook and cater for family and friends while promoting her beloved land.

Her passion for traditional Sicilian food was still not satisfied. With her husband Scott’s support, she created “Sikilia”, as a tribute to her native land’s regional cuisine and the traditional almond dessert. The passion was realized, at last!
