About me

Welcome into my kitchen! If you wanna cook and like to eat, you’re in the right place.

Ciao! I’m Gabriella. I’m a wife, a mother and a food blogger. I live in a small village near Alba, in Piedmont, Italy, with my family (my husband Paolo, my sons Matteo and Luca) and our loveable dog, Daxy.

I also have a small B&B in Alba, called La Trifula Bianca (The White Truffle) apartments, where I have the lucky to meet many fantastic people from all over the world. Alba is famous for its White Truffle, wine, good cooking but most of all for Nutella. Who doesn’t love Nutella?

I love cooking and travelling.

I started this blog a few days ago to collect my family recipes for my English friends and I’ll be very glad to share my cooking passion with you too.

Here you will find lots of good Italian recipes for everyday lunches, dinners and desserts. I like cooking all kind of good food, but especially sweets and bakeries: they are my best. I will reveal the tips and tricks of Italian cooking I learnt from my family.

I truly hope Sweet and Salty will be your first stop when you need an Italian recipe for any occasion. I’m thankful you’re here to join me in this adventure!

If you want, have a look to my Italian Blog Mani in frolla.
