I grew up on the south side of Chicago, but I’ve lived in Madison for 21 years and have been an elementary school teacher for 15 years. I LOVE Madison-the people, the vibe, the music, the natural beauty and especially the local food scene. I feel so fortunate to live close to so many local and diverse restaurants that believe in serving meals created with local produce and love. I’ve been passionate about food ever since I was a child. I grew up in an Italian kitchen watching my mother and grandmother create amazing meals. Food is a sensory explosion for me-the taste, the smell, the beauty. I look forward to sharing my passion for Madison and food with you. Let’s eat!
