I was born and raised in Rome. My Father is from Naples and my Mom from Tuscany, both known for excellent cuisine. I've travelled and lived in many countries as a diplomat’s wife. Exposed to cultures and languages, I acquired a flair for sophisticated, international entertaining. While appreciation of the food is key for a successful party, there is also a magic element in entertaining – it’s the soul, the spirit, something indefinable you can only provide with perfect food.
