I love to be in the kitchen.
Whether it's cooking, baking, or eating- I love it all.
My hope is that one day I'll be able to go to culinary school and finally turn this passion of food into a soul satisfying career.
I have had the opportunity to do that on a small scale with the little baking adventure I'm currently on. And with every cake I bake, my enthusiasm in the kitchen amplifies.
Recently, I was able to sneak into a friend's kitchen and help him make one of his best selling deserts. Semifreddo with a caramelized walnuts and roasted pistachios!
While I lived in America, I wasn't as privileged as I am here. In Italy, the restaurants are usually manned by the owners and their families. There is a great sense of pride in operating a restaurant and you can definitely tell by their attention to detail. Be it the atmosphere, the food preparation and plating, or fabulous customer care. I can truly say that I've never encountered poor customer service ANYWHERE in Italy thus far.
