The first thing I learned to cook was… focaccia!

My favorite food for summer is… fresh tomatoes or corn.

My go-to comfort food is… warm polenta with tomato sauce and lots of parmesan cheese!

My family’s holiday favorite… is pavlova — a big bed of crispy, chewy meringue topped with whipped cream and various fruits! I try to switch it up each year.
