About me

Location Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction Since my marriage to a Friulano I have spent many summers in Friuli (with frequent forays into other parts of Italy, particularly Rome),watching my husband's mother and his sisters while they cooked, scribbling and sketching in my notebooks, at first frantically trying to understand both Friulano and Italian, learning the exciting recipes of northern Italian cuisine. I have mastered both the languages and the cuisine at least to some extent, though I'll always be learning, and it's been quite a ride! During all those years I was also first an Art Educator and then a Student Counsellor in a large secondary school, and that, too, has made me who I am. My husband Italo and my two children, Paul and Elisa and their spouses have been endlessly supportive in all my endeavours, and for that I shall be forever grateful. I have four grandchildren, whom I adore! During all these years of cooking northern Italian food, I have often incorporated the plentiful and fresh local ingredients of the Pacific coast and it is often these "fusion" recipes that I include when appropriate. It is my hope that you will try and enjoy them. Do let me know!

You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?

A brooch and a pair of earrings!
