I love hearing everyone’s “story." Where are you from? Why did you start doing what you do? It's fascinating because it is often a long journey with many twists and turns. We will get to know each other better over time, but here is part of my story...

Growing up with an Italian father who did all the cooking, delicious homemade Italian food was a daily event until I was 10. Then circumstances shifted, and I experienced times of food insecurity and years where my diet consisted mainly of fast food and junk food.

In my early twenties, I was sad and overweight, and I realized I needed to change how I ate. I was craving the good food from my childhood, but I didn’t know how to cook.  Now regretting I didn't pay attention when my dad brought me into the kitchen with him. 

Recipes confused me. I didn’t understand all the ingredients, and I must have missed the memo: Read the whole recipe before you start. Who knew a whole chicken takes a day to thaw?
Then a dream came true. I moved to France. It was my first meal in Paris, in a cozy bistro by the Seine, that my life changed forever.

I remember the meal like it was yesterday. Cream sauce with morels, dark chocolate ganache as it melted in my mouth, and the aroma of Calvados. The exotic combinations of the flavors were new and exciting. The food was decadent, but what happened at the table is most memorable.

After a 4-course meal including an apéritif, dessert, and digestif, I didn’t feel full or regret my indulgence—I was just in a pure state of bliss. My dinner companions, who started as strangers, now felt like old friends.

My first meal in Paris marked the beginning of my journey to learn how to eat for my health and pleasure. As I watched the French eat bread, cheese, cream sauces, and desserts, I wondered how they stayed thin. It seemed like they never denied themselves anything and enjoyed the pleasure of their food without feeling guilty. I wanted this too.

Over the next few years, my fascination with food and how to eat grew. I realized  how we eat affects every aspect of life: health, wealth, and relationships.
The new eating habits that I formed in France were life-changing. I was committed to living this way forever. Then I had children and quickly discovered feeding a family isn’t easy. My three sweet children pushed me to the limits to find ways to create dishes that everyone would love. And to find the time to do it.

With a pinch of creativity, a dash of logic, and a sprinkle of inspiration from my husband Pierre’s family in the south of France, I found the perfect recipe to take the stress out of family dinner. I will share what I have learned and what has helped other families like you over the past 15 years so that you don’t have to struggle anymore.

Because eating good food leads to good conversation and connection, eating together is one of the best investments you can make.

Over the past thirty years, I’ve worked as a financial planner, helping families create a family legacy through wealth. Of course, money is important, but I will share that a family legacy more valuable than any wealth starts at the dinner table.

I am glad you found your way here, and I believe we were meant to meet. Stick with me. You are about to embark on a delicious journey that can be a game-changer for your family’s health and happiness.
