ABOUT CRISTINA: I was born in a town in the North of Italy and grew up in a country village close to the beautiful Lake Garda. Surrounded by nature and animals, I really adored outdoor life. In the late 80’s, my mother opened what in Italian is called a “pastificio” – an artisan lab where we started producing different kinds of fresh pasta from tagliatelle to ravioli, tortelli to lasagne, gnocchi and so forth.

At that time, I was still a teenager. Eventually, I obtained a nursery teacher qualification, but even while still at school, during the holidays and after school, my time was spent in a three-storey lab, and I was fascinated to see and share in the rewarding process of transforming very simple ingredients like flour and eggs into beautiful and delicious pieces of pasta art.

Later on, I decided to work alongside my mother and I am eternally grateful to her for having passed on this passion and ability to me.
