Chef Chat
- In-depth interviews with inspiring Italian cooks

While most of my pasta know-how comes courtesy of my Italian mamma-in-law Marisa, I'm also interested in learning how other Italian cooks approach their food.

So this section of Pasta Recipes Made Easy is dedicated to finding out.

Here I talk exclusively to some of the cooks I've discovered that really inspire me. Some are popular food bloggers, others well-known TV chefs. But wherever they work - offline or on - one thing's for sure: they all really know their way around La Cucina Italiana.

So who better to learn from? I hope you find their stories and tips interesting.

(Who's missing from this page? Just let me know which Italian cook you rate the most and I'll contact them about an interview too.)
