I'm Luca, an architect with the passion for cooking. Since i was a kid, I helped my grandmother when she prepared the daily meal for my family and the special recipes for the festivities. Later on I tried to catch all the secrets from my mother's kitchen and after different working experiences now i would like to spread the ligurian way of life.
