I attended a practical course "Become a Pastry Chef"(Basic Module) and I have basic Cake Design certificates, one earned in Turin with Elena Bosca as a teacher; decorating Easter eggs with royal icing and creation of human and animals shapes.
Recently I specialized in the bread-making attending a course with Sara Papa and one theoretical day with master Piergiorgio Giorelli. In addition, I manage a cooking/travel blog called "La Cascata dei Sapori".
