I grew up in a family where food is one of the most essential parts of life.
Whether we are gardening or shopping for it, preparing it with love and attention, setting the table for feasting on it, presenting or “plating” it, serving it to family and guests, food is “number one” for our family.
My grandfather, Giuseppe Cipriani, created the world famous Harry’s Bar in Venice a restaurant that opened up its doors in late 1931 and hosted an impressive and varied group people from around the world.
Out of Harry’s Bar, a legacy grew…my family now has more than 20 restaurants all around the world.
I began cooking as a little girl. Experiencing the recipes of my city and my “Nonni” I was inspired.
