Hi I'm Nadia and I'm a vegan Italian expert. I'm here to help you embrace life the Italian way through delicious vegan recipes and by finding beauty in the little things (la dolce far niente). Let's bring joy to your dinner table!
But what I'm really passionate about is showing you how food connects and creates experiences of love and joy.
A little more about me...
Most recently my love of adapting Italian cuisine led to me competing on the SBS reality TV cooking show, The Chefs’ Line for Italian Week. You can watch the episode here.
When I'm not delving into foodie adventures or running a cooking class or food demo, I'm a teacher and creative writer, with articles featured in Nourish, Ramona, Vegan Lifestyle Magazine, The Australian Vegan Magazine and Vegan Travel.
I have a background in theatre, acting and creative writing. I'm a published playwright and winner of Exit Theatre Company’s 2014 scriptwriting competition, which went on to be directed by Logie award winning actor, John Wood in 2017. You can find the The Colour of Fire here.
I have published a poetry anthology, Winter's Last Kiss. You can see a sneak peek or purchase a copy here.
I studied acting at The Victorian College of Arts, Flinders University and National Theatre Drama School and have performed in theatre and film and won the Theatre Shorts Best Actor award for my original monologue, a powerful symbolic piece exploring the connection between human genocide and mass animal slaughter. You can see my performance here, The Way Things Are.
My love of Italian food, travel and culture arises from my heritage; my father was born in the small southern Italian village of Molinara, Benevento. I can’t help but seek a life of la dolce vita and believe it is my purpose to share this appreciation of the joy of food and lifestyle with you.
I love sharing my passion for recreating Italian classics, making memories and embracing cooking the vegan Italian way.
