Florence, Italy

I have lived and worked in Florence, Italy - the Renaissance capital of the world - for three decades. And...contrary to what one might think, thirty years in this enchanting region still hasn't jaded me. I still marvel at Tuscan sunsets, patchwork vineyards, and low lying fog blanketing valleys at dawn. My taste buds still dance when I treat them to a Tuscan culinary delight or a smooth Chianti.

I adore the culinary arts as well as writing, and have managed to combine my passions. I conduct hands-on culinary workshops, as well as private dining experiences and I have self-published two books - Tuscan Life - Food Tales & Recipes, and The Way to One's Heart is.... easy, enticing recipes for two. Both are available on

So, if you are travelling my way and would like to know you have a friend in Tuscany, simply drop me a line. I am always happy to share my knowledge of the region, its hidden treasures and culinary delights.

I invite you to have a look at my websites:
