My name is Paola, I am Italian and I am currently living in Italy.
As you can imagine food and cooking have always been a kind of a way of living for me, and still family holidays and most of my childhood memories concerning my family revolve around food.
I have lived for some years abroad and during my life as a foreigner I have been much impressed of how much interest people were showing around Italian food and food traditions. Therefore my house and my kitchen were often full of friends from all around the world who were curious and could not wait to taste the “real” lasagne or the original tiramisu…or some other dishes of my country.
Finally I have grown up surrounded by two cultures: my grandma on my father’s side (nonna Tina) was born in Naples, while from my mother’s side (nonna Piera) I had the typical example of the traditions of Piemonte. Two different types of cooking and passion which totally inspired me.
So, let’s start this journey together!
I’m creating this page because I would like to show that Italian recipes are not difficult to realize and that our food culture is very easy, healthy and based on two little secrets:
“heart and good and simple ingredients”
You put your heart and passion and I put my recipes! Your comments and pictures of your final results will be more than welcome!
Enjoy and BUON APPETITO!
