Welcome on Life Love Food, a journal of personal thoughts, passions and recipes.

About me

I was born and raised Italian from Italian parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Having grown up in a little village in the Venetian countryside, I have always been used to good, local, organic food...Without even knowing it –it was just everyday food. While living there, I have always baked with grandma's eggs, eaten happy free-range chickens, vegetables from the garden and fish from the local market near the seaside. 

After four years of University life in the lovely town of Padua, I moved to another small town, in the middle of the amazing Langhe region in Piedmont, to study Food Culture and Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences. I learned so much about food in one year there than in a lifetime. I left with my own ideas and concepts about what good food is and why it is good for you. I then started to feel that hitch – I needed to be spreading the word.

During that time, I met my soulmate. He is my best friend and supports and challenges me every day in the best possible way. We share the same passions, values, dreams, and enjoy the same type of lifestyle. Good food and creativity are the core of our life together as a couple. When we left the Langhe for London, these values helped us to move in the right direction, an to avoid feeling lost in this big move from the countryside to the metropolis.

To me, good food is the kind of food that is seasonal and available at the local farmers' market, and it is good for you because it is fresh and it makes you happy at first sight. Good food is local and inexpensive, environmentally friendly and grown with care by local farmers. Good food is healthy and diverse, colorful and tasty. It is good for your palate, your body, your soul and the system around you.

I will try to blog my way around this idea of good food. I buy organic, local and seasonal as much as I can (especially dairy, eggs and produce). I consume very little meat and only sustainable fish. I am neither vegetarian nor vegan, I don't follow any particular diet, and I rarely cook intentionally gluten/grain/nut/dairy/egg-free food. If I do, it is because I find that specific recipe to be perfect as it is, and to be worth sharing. My recipes are simple and wholesome. You will rarely see heavy or very complicated recipes, although from time to time I like to embark in an adventure and cook something special. All you see on this blog comes straight from my kitchen and passes in front of my lens before ending on my table.

If you want to give my recipes a try, I would love to hear how you liked them. Thank you for reading!
