I’m lucky to have had two amazing grandmothers with a passion for cooking. My “Nona” was from the north of Italy and “Lolo” was from Spain. Lolo used to make pickle fish. You would think that is a kids worst nightmare, but it was fabulous. I would kill for that recipe. My mother is also a wonderful cook. I grew up eating the most amazing food; her lasagna and Bolognese sauce are out of this world. I am originally from Argentina and living in Colorado for the past 15 years. As you can imagine, I love to cook, eat and entertain. I read cookbooks like novels. I used to have a huge collection but now I’m down to 125. Also I used to have millions of clipping and now just a small box. Trying to simplify my life. There is nothing that I enjoy more than traveling. I love the challenge of a new culture and a foreign language. Of course all my traveling is culinary oriented. Eventually I would love to move to Italy. Italians, in my opinion, have the perfect life style; Hard work in the morning, good food for lunch, nice siesta and out for a “giro” (go for a round) in the afternoons to visit with your friends over a cup of coffee. My daughter is a great baker; she has a natural talent for it. We can make the exact same recipe and hers ALWAYS tastes much better. My favorite products are seasonal, organic and fresh; I stay away from cans and pre-mixed stuff. I’m a proud member of the Slow Food movement. http://www.slowfood.com/
