This is Izzy and Nando, Izzy is almost 13 years old and Nando is 13. They are my kitchen buddies and love to hang out with me. We live in Brooklyn, NY. I love everything about food, always have. I come from a large Italian family and grew up in or around the kitchen. I am actively developing recipes for my favorite food website Food52 and also contribute recipes to Whole Foods. Baking is a passion of mine and I am currently honing my skills in bread baking thanks to “The Solitary Cook”. The art of cooking well is a skill that comes from lots of trial and error, for me it seems like its more error sometimes and it’s a learning process. If you love to cook and love food the possibilities are endless.
