When we are not on outings, lunches and dinners here at the house will be prepared by Melissa.  Guests will be free to enjoy a glass of wine while watching or helping Melissa in the kitchen.

Pilchards to white-throat

Ciao! My name is Melissa. I have a passion for all matters concerning the kitchen,  my enthusiasm leads me to cook for anyone who loves to eat, preparing new and tantalizing dishes. I love to blend the flavors of the season in traditional and unexpected ways by combining the freshest ingredients and even produce from my own land. I have fun pairing foods which might seem to contradict each other taking care that even their very appearance is an expression of art. My  intuition and passion for cooking has enabled me to acquire the knowledge necessary for the preparation of many recipes. I am discovering that my innate talent in the kitchen is increasing day by day by my passion for the culinary arts.
