I am an Eleventh generation Roman. My father worked in the wine business since I was a little child. Today, as I have been engaging in business in North America, I have realized the importance of the Italian Ancient Values: Meals are a life asset, cooking is integral to relationships and socializing, and the quality of food is a Must to enjoy taste and flavour.
I have realized and I have been appreciating more and more in the US and Canada - where meals are too often taken in front of a Computer or watching TV - that the values of Ancient Italian Tastes and Flavours are even more compelling and appealing today. And so is the idea of taking time to enjoy the pleasure from choosing the finest quality ingredients to preparing simple food fresh and sharing with the people you love.
