A wonderful breakfast is a great way to start the day. Something that I've eaten all my life is the Italian version of "beans on toast" which is spinach and cannellini beans accompanied with garlic, olive oil and chilli.

The thing that I love about fresh pasta is that it's one thing that you can make together with family and friends. This is one of them.

I was inspired by my trip to Italy last year where I witness my aunt made homemade ricotta ravioli for a simple lunch. I was thrilled...

Very grateful to have worked with Mutti Pomodoro on an end of year collaboration using some of their fabulous products. They are amazing!

So early this month I received a wonderful parcel in the mail. My Nonna had accepted the delivery on my behalf and I went around to her house to pick it up. Little did I know that a few of us would need to help me bring it back home.

So I had a little craving of delicious, creamy carbonara after watching an afternoon cooking show. It's dangerous working from home! On a positive note, I do get a lot of amazing ideas when I work from the comfort of my own home. You'll usually find me scribbling down...

For the past few weeks I've been on a 8 week fitness challenge which basically means that I've had to loose the carbs and stick to veggies and lean meats. For the past few weeks, I've also had a craving for macaroni & cheese (insert sigh here) Why do these things keep...

Two weeks after I had returned from Europe I received a message from an old primary school friend who approached me with an opportunity that I couldn't refuse (excuse the Godfather reference)

I love what I do and to share that with the rest of Australia was such an incr...
