Eleonora is an American-born, Roman-bred food writer and blogger raised in the milieu of cinema, design and cuisine. Coming from several generations of serious Italian home cooks and filmmakers, her passion was fueled over the years in world kitchens, savoring and cooking for colleagues, celebrities, friends and family. Eleonora’s successful career in filmmaking naturally transitioned to journalism and blogging when her son was born in 2006, and her writing has since appeared in several food, travel and lifestyle publications.
As a Rome native she is an avid frequenter of both family-run eateries and white tablecloth restaurants alike and a fine scout for the best food vendors in Rome and beyond. She is the author of blog Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino, and her first cookbook-memoir is due for publication in 2016.
