I was born in a sunny little town in Sicily back in the day. My life was happily divided between my scientific studies and practicing the decorative arts until I moved to Florence for my University studies. Here, for the first time ever, I was left free and responsible to cook for myself. Long story short, I soon was catering to all my housemates.
Once I obtained my Master Degree in Physics I moved to Bonn, Germany, to follow up with a PhD. It wasn't long untill I realised how a tight fit a life of pure research was for me. In the period that followed, I started my blog "Recipe Taster" as a way to reach out into what was still a mysterious world to me.
Little by little though, what seemed at the beginning as a complete shift in careers became more like a natural evolution of myself. My scientific studies have in fact empowered me with the knowledge and attitude that I find essential for developing new successful recipes that work.
I now manage my activity as freelance recipe developer, private chef, teacher and photographer, embracing both my artistic and scientific side.
