Cooking is our passion

Francesca DeFranchis


“Passion” has been passed down by generations of Italians for centuries. Italians are born with “Passion” because they are surrounded by flavors, spices, natural ingredients and amazing scenery. This is why my passion for food has grown so much. I recognize that we can learn and eat healthy, and by developing our senses of touch, smell and taste, we can understand the “Passion.”

Follow me in my venture, fire up your senses, and feel the “Passion.”
