I come from a long line of cooks who are passionate about authentic Italian cooking. Growing up in Naples, my grandmother always cooked for lots of people, and demonstrated simple, fresh pasta and tomato sauce can be amazing when made with love. This was passed on to my mother and aunts, and now I love the classics like lasagne, gnocchi and anything to do with baked aubergine! I do enjoy cooking other food, but my heart will always belong to Italian cuisine!
A great deal of my cooking is inspired by my oriental background and upbringing, but having grown up in London, I have been exposed to and spoilt by an extensive range of cuisine. I love creating fusion dishes. I love adding spices to classic English dishes like Szechwan peppers to roast lamb and chilli to chocolate muffins. My green tea mousse cakes have had many compliments from friends and family! East meets West!
I grew up in Puglia, Italy, making fresh pasta every day with my grandma (it was often said this was the only thing that would keep me quiet). I moved to London in 2014, have loved discovering new cuisines, and am a recent convert to Indian and Thai cooking. I am passionate both about great cooking, and a bit of a nerd when it comes to the tools that make great cooking easier, often reading up about them at home, when not cooking!
