I was born and grew up in the city of Oxford, famous for the "dreaming spires" of its historic university.
My father was born in Rome and as a child I spent many long summers in Italy, absorbing the art, history and of course, the food.
I have lived in Japan for nearly seven years and have many interests. I particularly enjoy traditional crafts and have just started taking Japanese pottery classes.
I've learnt so much living in Japan that I would love to be able to share some of my own British food and culture with you!
