NO. I am a cookbook author, food and prop stylist, and workshop leader. I live in Italy in the summer where we own a home. I teach Styling and Photography Workshops in Italy. I work with magazines, cookbook publishers, major brands. I post on my blog twice a week, and appear on The Today Show, as a lifestyle expert. My cookbook is Picture Perfect Parties published by Rizzoli NY.
What do you write about on your blog and how has blogging changed your life?
I write about lifestyle, recipes and post for major brands. I am known as a lifestyle guru in the USA.
What’s your signature dish?
Finish this sentence: “For me, the ultimate food heaven is…” What’s your idea of food hell?
Food heaven is cooking at home in Italy. Food hell is fast food like McDonalds.
How many cookbooks do you own? What attributes make a good cookbook for you? Who is your favourite celebrity chef or favourite food writer?
I own hundred of cookbooks, but I edit them regularly. I collect vintage cookbooks. I love Italian cookbooks, and cookbooks that are classics. Or books that will become classics. As far as TV I watch no cooking channels – I find celeb chefs pretty annoying. I do love Jamie Oliver though, I think he’s great! I like his message!
Do you have a favourite kitchen tool or appliance – either a new addition or a trusted old favourite?
I love my Nespresso Machine. My Kitchenaid mixer is probably my favourite tool in the kitchen.
What other influences or interests would you say make for a great food blog – travel, fashion, tech, lifestyle?
I live in Italy all summer and write about it, food, cocktails, etc. I also write about our workshops – the latest was in Marrakech, Morocco – it was fantastic!
