About Me :)

Hello Everyone!  I am 27 years old and I live in UK. 
I like travelling, sport (especially football) but most of all I 
love food as I am always looking for new flavours and tastes. 
I seriously think that my love about food was deeply rooted in 
the country I come from, Italy.italy-flag2

Since when I was a young boy I
had the opportunity to 
consider food not just as some
thing to feed yourself but as 
a whole universe of 
sensations, emotions and 
beneficial pleasures. 

Now, among all of the fruits 
and vegetables, 
I find tomatoes to be the most special and interesting fruit
(it's not a vegetable :) ). 

The varieties of the red colour, the grade of its sweetness make 
it very versatile in different cuisines. 
You can have it on a salad, you can make a simple tomato sauce or
even have it sun-dried and still recognize the indisputable taste. 

In a world when everything runs so fast you feel like you miss 
moments. 

I will try to bring the old-fashioned glamour of finding some 
time to re-evaluate our cooking habits and by doing that 
why not re-value ourselves too :)
