Alessandra, a sales executive for a multinational company and a passionate food blogger, welcomes us into her bright and modern home in the EUR neigbourhood just near the city centre. Her passion for cooking was born when she was six years old, as she became old enough to help her mother and grandmother in the kitchen. What started as a fun pastime developed into a true passion, and Alessandra quickly became an expert with all the kitchen tools. She has a fond memory of the first desserts that she made by herself, as the scent of freshly baked cinnamon filled the air – her favourite spice.
Alessandra’s love of cooking has inspired her to deepen her knowledge of Rome’s cuisine, but she always makes sure to add a creative touch to make it her own. To build on her existing skills, she worked towards a professional chef qualification, working alongside Michelin-starred chefs, who taught her a great deal of cooking secrets.
The secret of the Cesarina
My secret is the rolling pin that was passed down by my grandmother Chiara. Every time I use it, it brings back memories of her wonderful home cooking.
