Hi - my name is Roberta. I am Italian, live in Milan just a few minuts walk from Sempione Park. I have been travelling and working abroad for the last few years ( Africa, Asia and Middle East) so the food I prepare is slightly contaminated by my travelling experiences. I live in an old milaneise style building where neighbourds and children still know and help each other. Cooking is a passion to me. It represents an alternative way of travelling, knowing new vibrant people, other cultures, habits, stories. I am vegetarian and normally use organic fresch local food. I produce my own organic jams, preserves and liquors. Do not have a car so I usually buy ingredients at the local market around the corner or at the farmers one. I simply adore colours, they are my inspiration when I cook. Please reach me by walking trought the park. You will admire the stunning beauty of the Peace Arch. Follow the little lights on the stairs and you will find my apartment. Every dish is dedicated to a city or a place or ingredient significant to me. Ingredients change often cause I respect seasons rhythm. Eating with me will be an experience that your senses will simply never forget.
I'm in my forties

What to expect at Roberta's place
A beautiful experience. An alternative way of meeting new people. Food was delicious but,at the same time, genuine and sober - a mix of flavours from far away. The location was warm as the Landlady. Roberta is able to open the door of her place but, also, of her life using the food she tasted during her journeys.
What a treat people are in for once you EatWith Roberta. She is passionate about the food she serves. She has traveled extensively and wants the dishes she serves to reflect the respect she has for each place and their special dishes. Plus, you will have the rare treat of sampling olive oil made from her family's village along with other delicacies that have been chosen by Roberta. We came as strangers and left as friends. That about says it all.
The experience to be hosted by a local host is very interesting and gives an opportunity to meet people who are not in your regular circle. To meet Roberta was a great experience, she is an interesting person and a great host. It was not easy to find the place ;) but gave us opportunity to visit milano's Chinatown, very nice neighborhood. The food was not quite what we expected - it was tasty but very simple. In our other eatwith visits the food was real gourmet.
