The roots of Italian cuisine are tied to the earth, to the sun and also to the heart.

This is the Italian cooking magic simplicity: Wheat, tomato, two simple ingredients that can be easily transformed into a work of art.

In this short free course I will teach you the two recipes that have become a symbol of Italy in the world. Pasta with tomato sauce and bread balls, which we can consider a symbol of Italian cuisine (this recipe is also suitable for vegetarians).

I grew up near Milan, but my origins come from southern Italy, Puglia, a land of sea, hills and endless plains. My parents and grandparents come from a small town in the Apulian hinterland: Biccari. I still remember long Apulian summers with my mother in the kitchen eating delicious fresh bread with tomatoe and basil. My passion for cooking was born there, walking the stone alleys, with the many fragrences and aromas of traditional food all round.

Life can be funny sometimes, when the biggest difficulties actually transform into opportunities. In 2018 I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time and I made a promise that when I got through all of the treatment, I would leave my job and do only what I loved, cooking.

So please join me on a journey as we visit the peninsula and discover traditional, simple and genuine dishes together.

Welcome home, to Italy.


Sono cresciuta vicino a Milano, ma le mie origini sono del sud Italia, della Puglia, terra di mare, colline e pianure sconfinate. I miei genitori e i miei nonni vengono da un piccolo paese dell'entroterra pugliese: Biccari. Ricordo ancora le lunghe estati pugliesi con mia madre in cucina a preparare il pane fatto in casa con pomodoro e basilico. La mia passione per la cucina è nata lì; camminando per i vicoli di pietra dove si sentivano intorno i profumi e gli aromi del cibo genuino.

La vita può essere divertente a volte, quando le difficoltà più grandi in realtà si trasformano in opportunità. Nel 2018 mi è stato diagnosticato un cancro al seno per la seconda volta e ho fatto una promessa: quando avrò superato tutte le cure, lascerò il mio lavoro e farò solo ciò che amo, cucinare.

Quindi venite con me in questo viaggio mentre visitiamo la penisola e scopriamo insieme i piatti tradizionali, semplici e genuini.

Benvenuti a casa, in Italia.
