I started cooking as a child with my mom. Since then, I have attended various cooking classes and honestly I can say that I love authentic flavors. I cook with organic food, I carefully choose where I buy my raw products and cook them to enhance their own flavor. I studied in Australia, worked in Europe, so I appreciete a lot other cuisine and learn from them. I have had the privilege of meeting people from many countries due to my job and travel, I hope to continue to do so. I live in Milan with my husband, my little girl and a very sweet dog named Lola.

What to expect at Elena's place

We had a wonderful dinner with engaging hosts. The food was marvelous and kudos for the lively conversation. Elena, her husband and daughter were fun to be with and we wish we would have had more time to spend but we had an early train. We heartily recommend Elana’s lasagna!
Dining with Elena, her husband and daughter was a highlight of our September visit to Milan. Elena, a welcoming and congenial hostess, had prepared an array of antipasti which incorporated regional ingredients and traditional recipes of Italy. Dinner was served in a delightful outdoor dining area, and the candlelit table was a a magical setting for both dining and convivial conversation. A pasta course of lasagne al forno in the Bologna style was followed by a simple salad dressed with an amazing local olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Panna cotta with fresh blackberries was the perfect ending to our special meal. The online booking process was easy to follow. We had interactions with our hostess with questions about possible food restrictions in advance of our dinner, as well as recivong directions to their home. Every step in the process was efficient and timely. And when we arrived for dinner we were welcomed as friends might be. Our US friends had no idea it was possible to dine with local families while traveling and are eager now to have share meals with families abroad. Highly recommended to singles, couples or families of any age.
Our first experience with eatwith and a very pleasant one ! We had a great dinner, food and wine were very good, but above all the conversation and atmosphere were excellent :) We had a really good time and definitely we recommend anyone to try and have dinner with Elena and her family !
