We are at the gates of Assisi, a city of profound peace and spirituality. The historical city center sits isolated atop a hill, surrounded by meadows and woods. Here, in the “green heart of Italy,” as Umbria is known, we are welcomed by Cesarina Anna. Her table is always ready to welcome guests and Anna is always ready to delight them with her cooking. Anna’s experience in the kitchen began when she was a child, at around 8 years old. Her grandmother and mother were both professional cooks, so she grew up in a family where food was considered an element not only of sustenance, but also of joy. Cooking for Anna does not only mean reliving her childhood, but also experimenting with the recipes that have been handed down to her, constantly reworking them to express her creativity. It is an art that she finds gratifying because "preparing good food makes others happy."
