A little about us
Ciao, we're Emily and Nathan, the husband and wife team behind Inside the Rustic Kitchen.
Nathan comes from an Italian family on his mother's side and the Italian influence has always remained strong. When we met at the age of 17 it's safe to say that influence was passed down to me. We are both obsessed with cooking, all things Italian and its traditions.
In the past, we spent months volunteering in Italy, working on farms, picking olives, bottling the new season olive oil and experiencing the most delicious food from amazing families.
We then made the move and spent years living in Tuscany soaking up the culture, language, beautiful landscapes and best of all the incredible food!
Within the first year of living there, we started this food blog so we could share everything we learn with you! Italy is so diverse from region to region and household to household, there's always something new to discover and learn about when it comes to Italian food so we don't pretend to know everything.
One thing we do know is that we love learning, eating, cooking and sharing real Italian recipes with all of you.
P.S Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see behind the scenes, what we get up to in our kitchen and more about what we do every day!
What Inside The Rustic Kitchen is about
Inside The Rustic Kitchen is a recipe website dedicated to Italian food. You'll see authentic and traditional Italian recipes as well as modern recipes with a fun Italian twist.
The Italian way of cooking is something that is really important to us which means that simple, high-quality ingredients are key.
We work extremely hard testing our recipes so we can provide you with the very best including our top tips, variations, and ideas to make it your own. All our recipes come with easy to follow step by step instructions and photos to make it as easy as possible.
Quick and easy recipes
Like most people, during the week life is super busy and come dinner time we need something quick and easy. We make sure to create new recipes that are quick, easy but incredibly delicious on a weekly basis so you can still cook from scratch, in little time without compromising flavour!
Many of our recipes are healthy and there are plenty to choose from but when they are indulgent (there are many of those too) they are always 100% made from scratch with real ingredients. No packets, jars or pre-made sauces, ever.

If you love Italian food and love to cook you've come to the right place! As well as quick and easy recipes we also provide recipes for those that love to get in the kitchen and have some fun. That's right, recipes for foodies!
