About Ed Garrubbo


Benvenuti tutti! La bella Italia and its food have always been my passion, my motivation, my sanctuary, and my joy. I feel lucky to have grown up in a family obsessed with food.  My grandmothers taught me to cook, but more importantly, they showed me that food is the most basic way to spread love.  I suppose that I’ve been brainwashed.  

I spend a lot of time thinking about, studying, chasing, sharing, and cooking Italian food. My love affair with Italy, and its food, wine and culture, has only deepened with time… Join me! I’ll show you around! Buon Viaggio!
