Guiseppe, better known as "Joe" is the first generation of Australian to Italian parents. Joe's mother Raffelina was born in the Southern Italian area of Calabria and landed on the sands of Sydney in 1962. Joe's father Julio relocated to Sydney around 1959, was born in Trieste, in the Northern region of Italy, where his family continues to operate a winery which produces some of Italy's best wine under the brand "Skok", which is Joe's surname. Like most Australian born first generation Italians, Joe began school speaking just his first learned language Italian (dialect) and not knowing exactly how to speak a word of English. Meet Joe now though and you wouldn't know him to look or sound anything but Australian. Joe is incredibly proud of being an Australian, and equally as proud of his Italian heritage, and most importantly Italian food. Joe grew up working in many of his families Italian eateries.
