We are Giovanna and Carla, 2 normal Italian housewives who love the traditional ancient Italian cuisine learned from our ancestors.

We grew up with our culinary tradition and expressly wanted to keep them exactly like the old tradition, we cook for our families and friends who love the pure and adorable taste.

Why our recipes are so good and healthy.

The combination of Mediterranean ingredients is healthy because it is able to propose a diet that is able to determine an adequate balance between the income of calories and what our body tends to spend in the form of energy

Of course, we only use basic ingredients on the consumption of those foods that are characteristic of the Mediterranean basic like, pasta, bread, fruit, vegetables, bluefish, cereals, legumes, cheeses, extra virgin olive oil. In particular, extra virgin olive oil is an ally against diabetes.

Our recipes are healthy and beneficial for… blood circulation, cholesterol, and diabetes, we do not use harmful supplements but only combinations of natural ingredients.

Almost completely absent are animal fats, additives, butter, and sugar. From these foods, it is easy to understand how Mediterranean recipes are considered a valid example of balanced nutrition, based on healthy nutrients that even our grandparents knew.

Enjoy our recipes,

Buon appetito
