Ciao! I am Italian and I love everything about food. I cook with all my senses. I love texture, color, smell and taste. They are all very important to me in a dish and everything needs to be balanced. I let nature guide me when choosing the freshest ingredients. I try to cook with local seasonal ingredients whenever possible.

In my classes you can learn how to make simple Italian family styles dinners for those evenings that you do not have a lot of time to cook or you can learn how to make a more elegant and sophisticated meal for a special occasion. I can teach you how to make easy healthy children's meals and amazing birthday cakes that are still healthy. I can also offer recommendation on how to stock your pantry efficiently for the weekly meals and how to choose the freshest ingredients when shopping.

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents
as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

Awesome teacher. Very personable. This was my first lesson and I'm looking forward to more. She was able to help me decide where to focus first and plan my lessons to my best advantage.

Lorna was great baking with my 12 year old grandson. He was awaiting hip surgery so the class was a great distraction for him and the end product a beautiful chocolate cake to take home was a fun reward.
Lorna was very well prepared, had all the ingredients and tools laid out, let my grandson do much of the work measuring, mixing etc and even had baked a similar cake the night before so there would be a cool cake to frost and decorate.
His review: it was great.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

I have bin working around restaurants for quite awhile, learned different types of reciepes and also have bin taught a couple things during work and I also learned from the comfort of my home as well. My specialty is more on the grill, bbq, iron skillet based, such as steaks, sandwiches, burgers, ribs, chicken, pork etc. I can also cook a couple of Asian cuisines, mostly Filipino since I myself am Filipino. I myself am still learning. For my lessons I will be mostly teaching you how to make the certain dish, what ingredients are needed, instructions on how to make and prepare the food, and help you get creative with the dish and also have fun while making it!!
