Ciao! My name is Jill and I believe there is joy to be found in eating and drinking well.

• Are you looking for easy recipes to help you prepare delicious, healthy food?
• Do you want to learn more about wine and how to buy and enjoy it?
• Curious about the Italian lifestyle?
• Planning a trip to Italy and wondering what and where you should eat and drink?

If you answered yes to any of the above, I can help!

I quit my office job in New York City and ran away to Italy and earned a master’s degree in Italian cooking from Slow Food‘s University of Gastronomic Sciences. There I interned in Italian kitchens, including a Michelin-starred restaurant in Rome and a rural agriturismo. I also hold Level 2 and Level 3 wine awards from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

While I am a proud native Vermonter and spend time in the Green Mountain State when I can, I live in Rome with my Italian boyfriend Roberto and his two cats, Fatty and Fluffy. My day job is in communication and technology, but my heart is always at the dinner table.
