I’m Elisa and since I was a child I’ve always loved food and being in the kitchen. My mum Paola passed down to me the passion for cooking and baking and she taught me all tricks of the trade.
My pastry chef career started in 2004 in my hometown Cagliari and now is continuing in Cambridge where I work as a personal chef and food blogger.
With this blog I’d like to share with you my love for the good food through the recipes I prepare, the events I attend and the amazing places that are now part of my everyday life. A little cosy corner where I show you the life of an Italian in Cambridge.
