Hello, my eater friends, Last summer I moved from San Francisco, where I spent some fantastic years cooking for friends, guests, and clients. I was born and raised in the North of Italy, but my husband is from the South of Italy ... so in my kitchen, I love to mix and match different elements and traditions to make everybody happy! My dishes obviously have a strong Italian heritage but are also influenced by my travels and life abroad. For this reason, it is possible to recognize in my cuisine a touch of international flavors. However, I will cook for you vegetarian and pescatarian creations rather than "exotic" plates: some from the classic Italian and European repertory to others with more contemporary inspiration. My style is eclectic. I like to make an easy gourmet sandwich or a simple pasta with fresh tomatoes as spending time with more elaborate and creative preparations. I'm not the one that follows a recipe strictly because I prefer to add a bit of my own fingerprint to the plate. As a good fork, I love to cook not just to fulfill the stomach but also to open the senses, morsel by morsel, to the imagination, memories, feelings, and so on. I pay attention to the quality and origins of the ingredients, and also how I treat them. So, I use mainly organic products selected from local sources or imported when requested by the recipe. I also believe it is a good practice to reduce the necessary amount of fat, salt, sugar, gluten, animals' proteins. So, yeah, I will take care of it... but don't worry, the taste will never be compromised! IG:@forktofun INFO - No meat! On my menu and my kitchen, you will find only vegetarian or pescatarian dishes. Please because of COVID19 be aware of some precautions: - mask required to access (no bandana or similar) - alfresco table and access to garden only

The class was immersive and super detailed. Alessia was welcoming and the tiramisu was delicious. Looking forward to using her recipe and techniques for years to come.

We had the best time with Alessia and Michela! Not only was the food delicious and the apartment beautiful, they were wonderful and warm hostesses. They told us interesting facts about what we were eating, taught us fun Italian phrases then danced and sang throughout the whole night. They made all their guests feel comfortable. I highly recommend everyone to sign up for this fun culinary experience!

Ended up being a private dinner for my finance and I. Food was inventive and fun. Loved everything we had and Alessia was so much fun to talk to. Watching her cook and host was quite impressive. A unique experience!

Allie is a true entertainer and chef. Me and my family could not stop laughing about her flamboyant Italy stories and experiences in SF. Her place was perfectly clean and after dinner we even got a roof top tour. Everything was perfect, cocktails, wine parings, three courses. Well worth the money we spent.
