Hi, I am Alessandra, the creator and photographer behind pastafantasy, a food blog focused on deliciously Italian recipes for you and your family.
I am Italian, I live in Treviso, a little town near Venice. I am married to an encouraging, confident husband and have 1 young girl and 2 young men, all grown and Sushi, our red cat. I am a coffee obsessed and a pasta lover.
Food has always been in my life. My family has been in the hotels and restaurants business for 50 years and they were totally devoted to providing our guests with the best experience possible.
My mom, and her big traditional Italian books of traditional recipes, has always been an inspiration for my food
What inspired me to start my blog and share recipes
When my daughter and my son moved to the UK to study they would always ask me: “Mum, how do you do Lasagne?” or “How do I make Carbonara?”. One day I thought: ”Why do I not just create a website where I can share all my favorite Italian dishes?”
I hope to bring a pinch of Italy in every home far from it.
