Cucina Mia

Carrying the torch passed down by a long line of Sicilian nonne, I’ve been cooking since I was old enough to reach the countertop. I also lucked into another cooking tradition: an exchange student from Thailand lived with my family for four years, teaching me how to re-create authentic Thai dishes as well, which sometimes cross-pollinate with Italian ingredients. Never saying no to where my stomach leads me, I dabble in Mediterranean, Indian, California-inspired Mexican, and American comfort food, always falling back on the Sicilian delicacies that I love.

I maintain a sourdough culture and regularly bake bread, homebrew my own kombucha, mash my own Thai curry paste, extract my own cocktail syrups, and make my own cheese, ya know: all the hipster shit. I’ve posted hundreds of photos of my creations on Facebook and Instagram as well as a growing library of instructional videos and recipes.

Cucina Mia might be “my kitchen” but sharing my food and process with others brings me incredible joy.
