Well, my mum took after her dad and also my brother who is a chef, so I might say that cooking runs in the blood of my family. Since I was a child, I used to help my mum in our restaurant in Victoria and by the age of 8 years I prepared the dough for the pizza, for the savoury pies and the dough for my mum's famous lemon merangue and her mouth watering apple pies. By the age of 15 I worked in my family's restaurant as the Pizzaiola, making hundred's of pizzas weekly. No joke!
Now I occasionally go and help out my mum at the restaurant but at home it is my pleasure to cook and organise dinners! Last dinner I organised was for a group of Australians from Tazmania who spent a whole month in Ta' Karmena Maisonette and before they left I made a dinner for them. They were a really sweet group and I hope to see them again in the future!
