In the pursuit of a greater love, one can sometimes make the most courageous decisions. Debora, once a successful art director in the world of advertising, made such a choice. She abandoned her thriving career to follow a passion that set her soul ablaze: cooking. This journey led her through professional culinary courses and ultimately to the creation of, a culinary venture that has delighted discerning clients with its delectable offerings.
“To fulfill professionally my true passion, I made a bold move. I left my job in publicity to open my Eatwith experience. Cooking has been a part of my life since I was 14, and I’m delighted to share my culinary journey with others.”
But Debora’s journey is more than a culinary one; it’s a story of transformation. She doesn’t just cook; she crafts experiences. She shares recipes, composes reviews, conducts personalized cooking classes, and extends her services to cater to clients within the cozy confines of their homes. Her kitchen has become more than just a place to prepare meals; it’s a canvas where she paints vibrant stories of flavor and culture often with the company and help of her son.
Today, Debora’s home serves as the stage for her true passion: showcasing authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist. Within these walls, she invites friends from around the world to partake in a unique culinary experience, one that unravels the rich tapestry of contemporary Italian flavors. Her menu often boasts a delightful fusion of Tuscan and Roman, Genovese and Sicilian influences – a testament to Italy’s diverse regional cuisine.
“I find my purpose in helping people who aren’t that close to their food today. It’s fulfilling to show them ‘how to eat’ as people become more conscious about food.”
Italy, as Debora passionately explains, is a country where every region possesses its own distinct culinary identity. A shift from one region to another is akin to embarking on a gastronomic journey, where pasta shapes, sauces, ingredients, wines, breads, cheeses, and flavors transform in harmonious diversity.
Debora’s culinary philosophy beautifully bridges tradition and innovation. She takes the age-old traditions of Italian cuisine and adds a modern, “lighter” twist. Her culinary creations are a collision of flavors and techniques, blending the heritage of the past with the dynamism of the present.
Through Eatwith, Debora found the ideal platform to share her passion. It’s here that her culinary talents have flourished, where she can transcend traditional dining and invite people from diverse backgrounds to her table. Debora doesn’t just feed the body; she nourishes the soul and ignites the spirit through the universal language of food.
Debora’s story is a testament to the transformative power of pursuing one’s passion and embracing a greater love. Through Eatwith, she has not only discovered her true calling but also found a way to share it with the world, one beautifully crafted dish at a time.
