On your blog you write that cookery stands for history and memory. What history comes from the food that you prepare?
I'm very close to my family and my roots and my dishes reflect exactly this. On my blog there are recipes from Monte Amiata, family recipes, recipes given away, improvised... but there are also recipes from places across the ocean, recipes I acquired from every trip I’ve made.
What do you like most about cooking? (Is it true that you love to dance in the kitchen?)
Yes, I really do dance while I'm cooking. I've always felt clumsy, but when I do what I love, I feel incredibly agile, light and in harmony with myself. I like to cook my mother's and grandmother's dishes. I like to know that, through my cuisine, I can remember and tell many stories. I love to cook bread and leavened foodstuffs in general: I love the feeling of my hands in the dough, and I think that it’s really magical what happens with food in the oven.
