I’m from Tuscany but I lived in Britain for several years before coming back to Italy and settling in Mantua where I live with my husband.
I’ve travelled all over the world and this, along with my experience of living abroad have enriched my knowledge about the traditions and culinary cultures of other Countries.
I’ve always been drawn to conviviality and storytelling so in 2009 I started my blog in order to share my culinary experiments. The decision to give the blog an international appeal by publishing my posts both in Italian and in English is consistent with the contents of the blog itself: a mix of excellent traditional Italian dishes and food from all over the world all cooked with curiosity and passion.
