I am an American, who has made Italy her home since 1984.

not my castle!


Still now, there are challenges in adapting to my new home and I still remember the daily struggles when I first arrived.

My main interest is Culture through Cooking, I run Divina Cucina Culinary Programs, touring in Tuscany ( where I am based) Sicily ( a second home to me, where I return 2 or 3 times a year with groups) or other areas where I can provide custom programs.

I always get questions about everyday things in life as well as how did i move here, find a place to live, get work and more.

This will be where I can keep all my tips and tricks on surviving the Dolce Vita.
