2011 New Years resolution: start cooking the 1001 recipes I have collected. This is what I decided in December 2010. To make sure I don’t lose track of this mission, I have started this blog to document everything I make, whether a success or a failure.

So this is a little about me: my name is Natashia Bevilacqua. I have an Italian father, and an Australian mother, and I‘m from Perth, Western Australia. I’ve always been obsessed with good quality food, in particular, traditional rustic Italian / peasant food. Over the years I have collected numerous recipes from magazines, newspapers, the internet and friends and family, and I have purchased my weight in cook books. Always intrigued by the idea of making these recipes, I rarely find the time to actually carry it out.

Inspired by the many food blogs I visit every day, I have decided to give it a go myself!

I hope you enjoy this blog, and I welcome your feedback. Buon appetito!

  2. Tashy, this is a gorgeous idea. If you need a taste tester I'm more then happy to put my hand up :) Best of luck with your mission xo Suzie

  3. Girl, where have you been my whole blogging life?

    I just came across your blog and have to say I LOVE IT!! The food that you cook looks sensational. I have printed out a few recipes that I would like to try. I decided im going to make the caramelised leek,asparagus and goats cheese tart with the rocket, pear and pine nut salad tomorrow for lunch for me & my hubby!

    P.S. it took me about 2.5 hours to go through all your posts.. that's 2.5 hours of sitting in the office being distracted.. yeah, I blame you! (thanks)
