Hi from Ofelia!

"Hello everyone! Mine is a cuisine that starts above all from traditional family recipes. I was born in Calabria, but mine is a family branched out in cultural and consequently also culinary history. A great-grandmother of a Jewish family married to a great-grandfather an aviator American, another who abandoned dancing with the consuls for a marriage with an intellectual of peasant origins, all united with the Calabrian mountain tradition.From the branch of Jewish origins I took the great love for sweet and sour, for fermented recipes and spicy scents, from the noble branch some recipes that I discovered to be relatives of sometimes Sicilian and sometimes Neapolitan cuisine (from the Kingdom of the two Sicilies:), some that I have never happened to find in other houses. I moved to Rome almost twenty years ago to study and I stayed there, here I also assimilated some recipe books from my partner who is a Roman from Trastevere, making my own super recipes rlatives of the Roman tradition, such as the first classics or the Maritozzi, which I often personalize with fillings that bring me and my guests back to Calabria!

Ofelia provided a magical fusion of taste and sight! She has amazing attention to detail and we leave knowing how fortunate we are that we will be able to create some of that magic too!

Really fun lovely lunch with Ophelia. She is an absolute delight and a super talented chef. She taught me so much about Italian Cooking. We made delicious fresh pasta together and ate a wonderful lunch. Her apartment is really beautiful and the conversation was hugely entertaining. Would highly recommend ❤️

Sono andata a casa di Ofelia, una perfetta padrona di casa! In una calda e accogliente location si è dimostrata molto creativa e divertente nel preparare tanti piatti gustosi, sia per il palato che per la vista! Un'esperienza molto molto gradita, da non dimenticare.

I highly recommend this opportunity to all. We felt welcomed, spoiled, educated, encouraged, and left feeling a friendship. We look forward to Ofelia sharing a recap of the bruschetta topping, zucchini pesto, tiramisu recipes for us. She has inspired me to buy a Pasta machine and build experiences at home.

Ofelia and Leonardo, thank you for imparting to us the authentic hospitality of an Italian family in a way that will remain etched in our memories. Meeting you has been an honor. Best meal ever!
