Hi, I’m Francesca
This site was created as a means to practice photography, nourishment, patience, and creativity. This is the space I create as an expression of myself. I believe good food is as important as the air we breath. Good meals have to power to turn strangers into friends and transform busy days into quiet evenings. The memories of good meals are interwoven in my being, made visible by the softness I carry in my body.
I harness a deep appreciation for the body and an even deeper appreciation for food made so available to us today. I believe in the strong connection between our bodies and not only what we consume, but how we consume. I believe it is of the utmost importance that we teach this connection to the future generations.
I savor not only food, but the laughs, the daily recaps, the memories made, and the prayers offered around each table. It is my hope that these recipes will find their way to your table to help foster those precious moments.
