“Our kitchen was the epicenter of the universe when I was a kid. Like a local drop in centre, family and neighbours were always dropping in, sharing cooking duties and passing on cooking tricks and processes. I’d learnt to make ricotta ravioli and gnocchi whilst in primary school. Most of our vegies grew in the backyard. Family and paisani would gather on long weekends to make wine and pasta”

She is a cheap air traveller, a reader, a supermarket loiterer, a glutton and a total hypocrite when it comes to diet but she continually seeks the high of being healthy. Balance is not her middle name but it’s a definite aim.
