Growing up in a small village in Molise, a region in Southern Italy, the kitchen has been the center of my home. And still is today in NYC where I moved ten years ago with my family.
The emotional memory is so deep inside of me that it keeps coming back every time I prepare a meal. Wherever life has been taking me and during every stage of my life, cooking has changed as I evolved as a person: daughter, community server, wife, mom, friend, and host.
From learning family recipes to burning lots of pots, from just feeding my kids to elaborating personal dishes, from having many friends over to days of no cooking at all, I finally asserted my style, cooking simple recipes with carefully selected ingredients.
I improved my skills in the kitchen after attending a culinary school in Milan, La Scuola della Cucina Italiana, where I learned the fundamentals of cooking and safety in the kitchen.
Today cooking for me is about being honest in regards to food sourcing and preparation by using essential ingredients without waste. Three acts that define where I come from and what I value the most for a meaningful culinary experience at my table.
Having worked for almost a decade in the fashion industry, my guests can expect a tailored made menu where all senses must be satisfied with a perfect balance of shape, cut, color and flavor in every dish :) Food must be delicious, always!
You are invited to sit at my table.
