About Me


Whilst originally created to indulge my love of all things Italian, this blog has become a way of sharing all of my adventures; from battling with unruly children as an au pair to embarking on a degree at university. However, no matter which country I’m in or which cuisine I’m consuming, the truth is, I’m always searching for ‘la dolce vita’….

  1. i was reading your blog and was curious as too this friend who introduced you to bella italia! They are never named but they sound like a brilliant contact to have. Your food looks amazing you are a true inspiration to those of us who too share you italian dream.

      Well thank you Bronte, your kind words have truly touched me. Actually, my contact is a tad slow and slightly brain damaged, so in fact our friendship blossomed from the pity which i felt for her. On to the ham, I sourced it from a small panificio run my an old and wisened woman – I think that her name was Signora Bertorini – maybe you’ve heard of her??? Anyway, I’m so glad that you’ve enjoyed my blog, tune in tomorrow for my enthralling musings on risotto! it promises to be fun!
