ITALIAN/MEDITERRANEAN FOOD WRITER
I’m an Anglo-Italian food expert, writer, presenter, and consultant, with a life-long passion for Italian cooking.
Born and bred in London, I grew up between my father’s Italian delicatessen and my parents’ kitchen, where I learned the pleasures of Italy’s regional cooking and the value of slow living. Now, my mission is to show others how to capture the Mediterranean lifestyle, regardless of where you live, your experience, or how much time you have. I’m passionate about bringing a healthy, seasonal, and pleasure-first approach to food to the UK.
On my website, The Tiny Italian, I offer step-by-step recipes, spotlight my favourite Italian restaurants, uncover the best delis in London, and offer advice for travelling around Italy.
I’m certified by Leith’s as a cooking demonstrator, and have consulted for a number of restaurants, delis, and brands.
