What is your favourite childhood memory of food? What flavours take you back to that childhood memory?
When I was a child, I liked baking cakes with a variety of fruity flavours with my Mum.
What inspired your love of food?
My love of cooking comes from my family because we show it as a way of loving each other! I am very patient so I like to spend a lot of time cooking food in detail. I live in Naples where the food is famous all over the world, this is also a big inspiration!
What are your favourite things to prepare for your guests?
All Neapolitans like cooking in my city. Pizza, sfogliatella, babà and tomatoes are great! I cook for my guests pizza, pasta and a Neapolitan dinner with typical products.
What do you love most about hosting guests?
I love hosting! Bringing together people from different places to eat and drink all together is my favourite part.
Where in the world have you tasted the best food?
I love travelling to other countries, and I like Spanish and Greek food in particular.
How has the social climate of the past two years affected you professionally?
During the pandemic, I didn’t work with cooking but a lot of my guests sent me photos of their cooking from all over the world! It was great! I am excited to welcome guests back and ready for new experiences!
