I am a native New Yorker living in Miami Beach for almost 20 years. I am a first generation Italian and some of my most fondest memories as a child are with food and family gatherings. I can still smell and taste my Nonna’s soup and pastas. I was able to travel extensively for a period of my life. What a wonderful experience to taste the world!!

I am the co-owner/chef of a  catering company in Miami Beach for 15 years. I’m a true believer that a plate can be an empty canvas.

As a culinary educator, I taught culinary technique lessons at Williams-Sonoma for 10 years (2000-2010) where I developed and tested new recipes for the company. I was a sales representative for All-Clad cooking utensils. I was co-owner of Anima restaurant in Brooklyn, New York for five years.

I have a passion for all kinds of cuisine. I love to talk and educate about various foods.  I believe that the best way experience a city is through the various cuisines. Miami is such a culturally diverse city and it’s my pleasure to show you and eat our way around town.
