Marzia’s passion for cooking runs in the family—her mom and grandmother instilled in her a love of food, which she now shares via recipes that highlight seasonal and local ingredients. True to her blog’s name, the Houston-based recipe developer loves cooking meals that are packed with flavor.
I started cooking at a very early age and really got into it once I graduated college. It was a way to destress after work. It took me some time to realize that I preferred to cook for a living over my day job!.
Describe your culinary style.
My culinary style is simple: it has to be flavorful. No bland food, please! Whether it’s adding spices or simply combining ingredients that are naturally salty, sweet, sour, or loaded with umami to create unforgettable food.
What do you love most about cooking?
It’s a way to show love. When you place a plate of homemade food in front of someone, it shows that you truly care.
