Born in Catania in 1961, Monica worked with her mother, Eleonora Consoli (a very popular journalist and gastronomist, author of many books about Sicilian and Italian cooking) for many years. They run together a catering company and a cooking school in Sicily, both called “Cucina del sole”.
After her mother passing away, Monica decided to continue the activity, with passion and professionalism, to make people falling in love with Sicily and sicilian cooking.
Until today, she works with many “students” coming from quite all over the world and offers her experience as a chef to those who want to discover all the taste and flavours of the island.
She loves to study the history of food and she is involved in many projects about “Mediterranean diet” and good, healthy recipes.
