About Joe Giacobbe

Growing up in a big Sicilian family, I learned early on the importance of food and how it relates to family, culture and tradition. Some of my fondest memories include family gatherings and lots of food. Today, be it a back yard BBQ, a family meal or dinner out with friends, food continues to be the glue that holds together many meaningful and wonderful memories. I am not professional foodie, but I am a passionate supporter of the exciting things happening in and around the Worcester food scene. As a friend often tells me, the great thing about food is no matter how good or bad your last meal is, tomorrow is another day and you'll wake up go out and enjoy all the great places Worcester has to offer!
