“My love affair with rustic Italian sweets, drove me to pursue a career in la cucina pasticceria; the pastry kitchen. It drove me to undertake & complete my Retail Baking & Pastry Certificate with distinction at Ultimo Tafe, Sydney.
In addition, I gained employment as a baker at Manna From Heaven in Marrickville and worked there for three years. I furthered my experience in the pastry industry working for various well-known Sydney Patisseries such as Marineve Pasticceria in Five Dock, Café Sopra at Waterloo, and Yellow Bistro at Potts Point.
Oh, and I love to cook too! My cooking is heavily influenced by my Italian heritage and growing up in a family that grew its own food and created dishes from their own produce. I share my love of simple, home-style cooking with students at my cooking school The Village Cooks & I also teach Pasta Classes at Cornersmith, Sydney.
I continue to build on this knowledge and experience, with a love of reading, learning & experimenting from my large collection of cookbooks, food magazines, and recipes. I wish to share this with all at The Village Cooks!”
