Annalisa it’s so sad to say goodbye but what stunning memories I take from
a week with you in Florence! You opened your home and those of your friends
to all of us to see, smell, feel and most of all shared the best of Firenze!
I loved every minute especially the laughter all along the way!

About Me

There is nothing I enjoy more then creating culinary experiences and this is exactly what my life and work is about. I am a "Culinary Addict".

I was born and raised in the hills of Florence. I live to cook, drink macchiato, eat fresh artichokes in spring, taste new olive oil in the autumn, savor exceptional wines with friends and learn everything there is to know about gastronomy.

I now live in Sydney and give Italian cooking classes using the experience of cooking as a means to communicate through food for both adults and children. If I am not teaching a class or cooking for a wedding in Sydney I am acting as your tour operator on my great food tours in Florence and Tuscany. These are among the top food and wine tours available for women and one of the best family reunion vacations you can enjoy.  So join us and immerse yourself in an epicurean boutique experience.
