Recipe development and testing

Recipe development and testing

Recipe development:

You bring your vision or ingredient or memory, you name it! And I’ll use my magic to transform it into something memorable for you to eat.

Recipe testing:

I have a scientific background and testing methodically comes as second nature to me. A book I have helped to review and test: Cooking for Geeks... what else?

Photography and styling also available

Meal Planning


I love to cook, you don't, or simply don't have time!

But, rats, still need to feed the family and don't end up broke with all those UberEats.

So, let's make a deal: 

1. you call me

2. we decide what you like

3. I make a menu for the number of people you want and the number of days

4. I'll come over to your house, once a week with a bunch of groceries, cook, pack, store your meals for the week, clean after myself and go

5. re-heat and enjoy

5 steps, zero effort

About me


Oh, hi there! Valentina here. How are you? 

So, to make a long story short, I love to cook for a living, people call me chef. Truth is, that I am in love with food. A long-lasting relationship. I am Italian born and raised, and I have the feeling that, the foodloving thing, it sits in my DNA. 

Jokes aside, I was trained professionally there, in Italy, and I have run and managed two cooking schools, one in Italy (which I have founded) and one here in Toronto.

Italian food is my thing of course, but so it is pastry or baking or chocolate, or food from far far far away...

Anyways, what is it that I can do for you?

I would like to play my magic and bring my unicorn powder to your kitchen. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I can cook for you, with you, with your friends or for your friends, just drop me a line, tell me what is it that you are looking for, and I will make it happen, you just sit back and relax.

I hope to hear from you soon, In the meantime: Buon Appetito!
