Italian Cooking Parties in your Kitchen - Leesburg, VA and vicinity (up to 40 miles)
"A CUCINAMORE cooking party is a fantastic experience to be shared by all: it’s like taking a trip to Italy without leaving your kitchen! You book us for the food. You enjoy us for the fun as well. You love us because we clean up all items and space used, and always leave the kitchen just like we found it!"
Our events are an opportunity to entertain at home in a fun and informal setting, cooking side by side with your Personal Chef, and then enjoying great food with your friends. Lots of fun, and no stress for the host either: our party formula includes shopping for the ingredients, providing cookware, all necessary tools and serving dishes, and leaving minimal after party clean-up behind. A CUCINAMORE cooking party is a great idea for groups, couples, birthday parties, bridal or baby showers, book club special events, team building activities and much more.
You will never see us bringing pans of cooked food to your home for a cooking party: everything you enjoy during this true Italian experience is made FRESH AND FROM SCRATCH in your kitchen!
Why eating out when at a comparable price you can share a unique dinner and make memories in the comfort of your home?
You book it, we cook it, and we leave the kitchen just like we found it! :)

All good things come to an end, eventually.
Last stroll with hubby in my hometown, before flying back tomorrow.
This is where a part of my heart will always be, no matter where the rest of my body is. #cucinamore #cucinamoreinitaly #Treviso #hometown #family #roots #italianheart
Hubby's choice: pizza with wild boar salame and shaved truffle.
Another of the amazing options available at this place: plenty of treats for contemporary and traditional food, under the same roof, at a reasonable price, in an informal and fun environment. Oh, and we have only had great service there!

A different lunch today, in a unique place: fried rabbit, mushroom, and eggplants at the Mercato Centrale.
Loving Firenze so much!

When in Florence... you eat a Fiorentina!
Had great food and EXCELLENT service at Borderline restaurant!

Making polpette (meatballs) with my mom. Nope, no spaghetti or sauce involved (that's an Italian-American thing). These are going to be fried and served at lunch with a vegetable side of some sort.

Dinner Party Fun!
It would not be a trip home without mom's lasagne (how she could turn the oven on in this crazy heat is beyond me 😉)

Food as a tool to bring people together. It's how I have always thought of what I do with #cucinamore.
Today, it was my turn to sit at the table and be on the receiving end of a surprise party that a bunch of great friends threw for me ❤
Bonus: met a lady chef that I hope will be a new friend as well! Loving my time in Treviso!!!

In Venice, today. One of my favs: squids in their ink with polenta. On the upper corners, a taste of baccala' mantecato.
#cucinamoreinitaly #cucinamore #venetofood #seafood #polenta
A visit to Burano, the island of the colorful houses.
Back in the days, the fishermen would paint their sails the same color of their houses, so the family members would spot them coming home, in the foggy Venetian lagoon
"Bigoi co' l'anara" - local very thick spaghetti with a duck ragu'.
Brings to mind a very special chef friend on the anniversary of his passing.
He's been with us the entire day.
Mom's food: when I'm home she won't let me get close to the stove! And just like it was growing up, the entire family eats the food SHE likes! 😁 (not complaining here!)
Here are some traditional local pork sausage (very savory and not a lot of spices in the meat mixture) and greens. The greens are my favorite! There are various varieties but here is a bitter-sweet combination of saltwort (I looked the translation up) and a type of chard from the sugar beet family. It is braised with onions until very tender and delicious ❤
The other picture is s cold dish of stuffed tomatoes with a sort of tuna and egg salad.

Time for hubby to do cultural compromises on the table: I might be making Carbonara with bacon when in the US, but now he eats his morning eggs with crispy pancetta! 😁
#cucinamoreinitaly #cucinamore #americanhusband #breakfast
The only way to be able to eat all the good foods we are exposed to is to burn off some of the calories with a family bike ride in the nature! 25.3 km and now I'm hurting in parts of my body I I'd not know I had 😂🤣 #outofshape #cucinamoreinitaly #cucinamoreinAustria #cucinamore #moveitmoveit

Lunchtime in the mountains: homemade ravioli with porcini mushrooms, a small beer, and a lovely view

My dad has been purchasing his wine from this winery since I can remember. Back in the days, in the big jugs and use to bottle it himself. Now he buys it already bottled, but it still #tasteslikehome ❤ #cucinamoreinitaly #cucinamore #venetowine
NOW I know I'm home! Traditionally, my first meal at home is from the local takeaway pizza place 😊#tasteslikehome #cucinamoreinitaly #cucinamore #pizza
Might be raining outside but I've got sun in my heart today ❤

First appearance of our Amatriciana pasta at an actual Cooking Party during this past weekend and it got rave reviews!!! :-)
Some might look similar on the outside, but none is ever exactly the same as any other.
In the kitchen just like in life.
I celebrate the beauty of uniqueness.

Pretty babies ready to go in the oven. 😍
Got my beets from @afarmlessordinary
Roasted with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh thyme. Then finished them with a splash of balsamic and a squeeze of orange. Better than candies! 😊
(Great meeting you Maya!)

Finally graduated from the Professional Plant-based Certification Course!
Had a great time with @jkbrady13 at the #leesburgfarmersmarket today and met a lot of great people and farmers!
Also, got myself a delicious loaf of French bread before I left, at @sacredheartsgoods and met Dana, a baker with a passion for pasta! 😊 My kind of girl! 😍
Do yourself a favor and try her bread when you see her stand!!!!
