About Me

Welcome to my kitchen!

I am Marina, I was born in a small traditional town in Sicily.

Being brought up in Italy my love for food and pasta developed at a very young age growing up in a family of chefs.

During my teenage years I have spent hours in our family kitchen and I have been researching and collecting hundreds of recipes.  I will be sharing my recipes, mainly PASTA with you here! 

If you make any of them, please let me know your thoughts and tag me on my Fb page or my IG. I would love to hear from you! 

Cooking in autumn!

Cooking in winter!
