When nonna steps in and shows you how it’s done. This is my adorable mamma who is my everything. Strong, bold, sassy with a hilarious calabrese sense of humour to boot! She prefers to stay behind the scenes to work her magic at our cooking workshops. After many years in the food industry and all of the cooking she’s done at home she likes a little quiet these days and her favourite thing to do is be with my children, her ‘nipoti’. She’s one of the best cooks I know who has handed down to me some seriously good old school calabrese dishes I will definitely share at some of my workshops in the near future.

When people travel to Italy they see croissants and bombe (donuts) in the bars that people eat for breakfast and usually assume that these are a typical Italian’s breakfast. While I’m sure on the odd occasion the locals will indulge in something sweet at the bar to start the day if they’re on the run, you won’t find croissants and bombe in an Italians home for breakfast. Pane tostato, pomodoro, olio, basilico and sale is a common one in our home and in a lot of other Italian homes. I watched my nonni eat it, my parents and now I watch my children eat it and It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. If a sweet like homemade ciambella (Italian cake) is eaten for breakfast I can guarantee it’s not as full of sugar as a bowl of packet cereal, but more likely full of a whole lot of goodness... and love!

This is Claudio. Claudio drove us from our big private boat to a tiny coastal paese called Nerano where our skipper @robertoreeed from @bluestarpositano recommended we have lunch. We had an unforgettable boat ride around Capri and Positano that day. The spaghetti for lunch were a specialty of the house made with zucchini and formaggio stagionato and as Italian as Italian can be they were so proud to be serving it. I still get goosebumps when I think of how wonderful that day was ! I just adore our Italian holidays .

There’s lots of work going on behind the scenes to create a gorgeous little space for my Italian language, culture and cooking school. The southern Italian farmhouse style that will reflect the old kitchen of my zia’s farmhouse in the picture will look and more importantly feel authentic. We are getting there and I’m so excited !

È sabato sera! I remember evenings spent in bars in Italy taking our aperitivo, then to dinner, and then to dance it all off in a discoteca while hubby’s best friend dj’d. Ahhhh che bella la gioventù! E che bellissimi ricordi. .

New blog post up on the website ! 
Meet the gorgeous cookbook author and photographer Paola Bacchia @italyonmymind who was called Paula by her school friends and says her lunches were much like the Australian kids lunches. Paola chose to reconnect with her Italian heritage 10 years ago, and believes a passport doesn’t define ones identity. So how does she identify? Link in bio. 
Grazie di cuore Paola! Love your work 💕

I could have walked the streets of Monopoli all day to admire these kinds of little corners. My kids on the other hand just wanted to go and dive in the crystal blue water at the beach. So I snapped very few photos this day but the upside was I got to relax and enjoy some seriously good negronis at the Lido Losciale. .

The light at the end of the tunnel seems so far away at the moment, even though I know it’s there and it’s shining bright! There are so many things running through my head, so many things to remember, along with the emotions of transitioning into a new premises with the school. All of the above including running the normal school schedule and cooking classes that are starting up again the week after next is a tad overwhelming but I am trying to focus on the amazing outcome the change will bring. Excited and nervous all at once. The emotional dramatic Italian in me is peaking! Breathe in... breathe out..

La domenica (Sunday’s) for us are for family, long lunches, afternoon naps and chit chatting. We are certainly missing our immediate family in Italy but we are so grateful to have my parents and nonna here. This is my ‘figlio’ (son) Alessio with his nonno Gigi in Italia last month. No matter the distance, they are attached at the heart. It’s so beautiful to watch. .

✖️I have 3 places available in Italian Intermediate Lessons on Wednesday nights @6pm ✖️ send me a message if you’d like to join these amazing students. We do a lot of conversation in this class also. Placing beginner students would have to be my biggest challenge. This term I’ve had to knock back a lot of students but am working hard to create a brand new beginner 1 class (or maybe even 2) along with a new tween class on Saturday mornings before cooking workshops. Stay tuned for dates to be released for term 4. If you have any suggestions of something Italian you may be interested in learning how to cook let us know! Can’t wait to get into the new premises to share the love of my heritage and culture 💕 .

Dreaming of this amazing masseria in Monopoli we spent a few days at last month with our friends. I love a quick visit to different places when we are back in Italy. When the visit is short you always leave on a high and can’t wait to return. This place is definitely on the ‘we have to go back’ list! @masseriasantateresa_monopoli

Benvenuti to term 3 !
Italian language classes are all full but we will be creating a new beginner class for term 4 so stay tuned. I will be running 12 cooking workshops this term and there are only a few places left for various workshops. Click on the link in bio to see what’s available. I’m so excited to be renovating and styling a brand new premises for the school which will hopefully be ready very soon! It’s going to be just like an old Italian farmhouse kitchen and will allow the school to hold more classes and for me to share the love of my heritage and culture even more. Thanks to everyone who has sent their well wishes and for your support. Vi voglio bene ! This is going to be great!!! Tanti baci xxx .

Term 3 is just around the corner. I’ve finally sat down to answer almost 4 weeks worth of emails and sort Italian language lesson plans and cooking workshops. Thanks to all who have sent enquiries over our Italian summer holiday break. I’m excited to start a brand new term, meet new students and reconnect with existing!

A little snap from yesterday’s family long lunch ‘in campagna’. All of the greens we ate were picked by the kids with zio, prepared by ‘i papà e le mamma’ and enjoyed by all. This year’s visit home has been so rich with family and friend love and packed with surprises by friends near and far for my hubby’s bday. Blessed is an understatement. As always so many precious memories have been made. .

Southern Italian beach life. We are heading towards the end of our visit back home and enjoying making more wonderful memories with our loved ones. Our friends spoilt us with a little trip to Monopoli in the Puglia region of Italy. This gorgeous little beach had crystal clear waters and a fantastic lido with cold drinks for the adults, gelato for the kids, and delicious snacks for all! .
