My experience with food is all self-taught with lots of influence by my late Italian nonna’s (grandmothers) and my mother who is a superb cook. There was a time where I thought I would go to culinary school, traveling won out over that.

I live in Florida with my boyfriend, his son and our 2 dogs and cats. I was born and raised in South America, lived in Europe and now have settled in the US. Besides cooking, I love reading, sleeping, chocolate, technology, Apple products, traveling, throwing elaborate dinner parties and long brunches. My favorite foods to cook are Italian and Spanish food, but I love the simplicity and bold flavors of Asian cuisine. But, I got to be honest; I love all kinds of food and will try anything. If I like it, I will probably run to the kitchen to duplicate it.
