I moved from Scotland to Italy with my boyfriend Nathan and we both absolutely love it here. The weather, the markets, the people, the culture, the beautiful landscapes and of course the FOOD!

I started this blog because of my love for food and cooking. I was always talking about wanting to write a cookbook one day so Nathan suggested I start a blog in the mean time (little did I know what hard work it would be).

It comes with it’s challenges but I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ve gone from a home cook to suddenly becoming a photographer, recipe developer and technical wizard (I so wish that last one was true, ha).

I’ve still got a lot to learn and growing to do here but I’m having so much fun and loving every minute of it. Please feel free to have a look around, try our recipes and leave a comment. I love hearing from you all, it makes my day knowing someone is out there reading this. Also if you like what you see please subscribe, I need all the support I can get plus it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    All I can say is wow, and yum! I will happily follow your blog, and hope to find inspiration in your recipes, as my imagination has stalled recently. I hope you’ll stop by, too, and maybe follow my blog back? 🙂

    Seems like you and your boyfriend are having a grand time! 🙂 I wish had the skills in the kitchen because judging from your photos, the food you cook looks delicious! I bet it’s exciting to be a young couple in a foreign country 🙂 Had a taste of it when I lived in Singapore with my husband for a few months 🙂

          Beautiful, I’ve never been to Florence. I’m in a small town by the sea called San Vincenzo. It’s further south, about 40 minutes from Livorno. We’d love to see much more of Italia when we can, further north and south. There’s so much to see. 🙂 I had a quick look at your blog, really interesting. Looking forward to having a proper look tomorrow :-).

            Well, if you ever come to Florence, let me know! I’m only starting to explore the country as well, have only been to Milano and a few small cities around here, but I look forward to getting to know every bit of it! I hope you like my blog as much as I like yours, I already chose a few recipes to try on my own!

    Some of these dishes look absolutely fantastic. As an individual who cannot cook much, I’ve decided to follow your blog, at the very least to get new ideas. Do keep them coming, and have fun in Italy!
