But my big passion is cooking! As historian, I believes that the Italian cuisine and traditional food are the manifestations of intangible cultural heritage.

I am an accomplished home cook. Adding my own touches, my recipes can be prepared in your own home. My interests are for traditional Italian cooking, based on local and fresh products.

I love the traditional Italian Cuisine and in particular the art of pasta making!
