Hello, my eater friends, I was born and raised in a historical little town close to Milano and I have always cooked. Also, my husband is Italian, but he comes from the Southern part. In California, we became vegetarian while we kept open some pescatarian options for special occasions. Let's say we are 80% 20%. We also moved from SF to LA and here in a bigger house, I'm thrilled to host more friendly people for gastronomic experiences. My dishes come from a solid heritage, a guarantee of goodness, and a mark of authenticity. So in my kitchen, I love incorporating all the culinary traditions of our beautiful boot Italy. Said so, I also cook moved by my influences and inspirations: my life abroad, my travels, my sensory experiences, my learning, what I have eaten in my past, what I want to try tomorrow, and the love that I always put into the pot. For this reason, I think that in my "repertoire," it is possible to recognize a mix and match of international flavors, eclectic inspirations, and contemporary cuisine. I equally like to make a gourmet sandwich or maybe a simple pasta as I enjoy more elaborate preparations where are involved more dedication, focus, and technique. My discipline is to be creative and follow the suggestion of the day, of the season, of that special ingredient on the store's shelf today or again recreate a taste that comes from memories or wishes. Without any doubt, I'm a "good fork" too - the Italian way to say, foodie. So, I invite you to try what I consider greedy, delicious, beautiful, genuine. All that without compromising the wholesomeness and the good practice to reduce the necessary amount of fat, salt, sugar, gluten, and animal proteins in the preparation of a meal. Usually, the result is a yummy one but lighter and most effortless to be digested. Another key aspect for me is to pay attention to the quality and origins of the ingredients. I use mainly organic products selected from local sources and the freshest available in stores. So, yeah, now you can take a seat, a fork, and enjoy the table with me! IG:@forktofun INFO - No meat!

Product description

Enjoy authentic Italian cuisine with a garden view! This vegetarian dinner is inspired by the fond memories of Alessia's Italian roots, and each one will transport you to Italy! About your host, Alessia: "My dishes have a strong Italian heritage but are also influenced by my travels and life abroad, so you'll see a touch of international flavors in my cuisine. I'll cook vegetarian and pescatarian creations rather than 'exotic' plates: some classic Italian and European dishes and others with more contemporary inspiration." Evendo is the world's largest online marketplace for unique culinary experiences with locals. Savor local food and enjoy intimate supper clubs, hands-on cooking classes and bespoke private dining events in beautiful homes and exclusive venues with your loved ones.

The class was immersive and super detailed. Alessia was welcoming and the tiramisu was delicious. Looking forward to using her recipe and techniques for years to come.

We had the best time with Alessia and Michela! Not only was the food delicious and the apartment beautiful, they were wonderful and warm hostesses. They told us interesting facts about what we were eating, taught us fun Italian phrases then danced and sang throughout the whole night. They made all their guests feel comfortable. I highly recommend everyone to sign up for this fun culinary experience!

Ended up being a private dinner for my finance and I. Food was inventive and fun. Loved everything we had and Alessia was so much fun to talk to. Watching her cook and host was quite impressive. A unique experience!

Allie is a true entertainer and chef. Me and my family could not stop laughing about her flamboyant Italy stories and experiences in SF. Her place was perfectly clean and after dinner we even got a roof top tour. Everything was perfect, cocktails, wine parings, three courses. Well worth the money we spent.

We had such a great time for my friend’s birthday with Alessia. Alessia is a welcoming host and a fantastic Italian chef. Even I asked her some request in a last minute, she accepted it and changed from first plan so kindly. Everything was delicious, but especially home made cocktail and starter were amazing! I’ve never eaten like that!!!I highly recommend her dining and I will attend it again! Thank you so much for such a wonderful night:)
