Welcome to Food Cookture! It’s a pleasure to be able to share with you cooking experiences from my kitchen, family, friends, and restaurants I love.

About Food Cookture

Food Cookture is about “food culture” – a celebration of food from many cultures and its influence in my life.

My cooking embraces my Brazilian and Italian heritage, as well as culinary enlightenment of a variety of flavors and cuisines through my travel experiences.  I like cooking simple, easy and healthy recipes, though I will indulge myself (and my guests) once in a while.

The nutritional value and health benefits of food are also very important to me.  Whenever possible, I recreate recipes to make them healthier or offer substitutes without sacrificing flavor or texture.  That is how I cook at home, finding the healthier and simpler side of recipes, and I want to share that here with you.

I hope this blog will inspire you to cook and experiment in your own kitchen.  I hope you enjoy the recipes provided.

About me

My name is Alessandra and I’m passionate about food, cooking and eating well.  Cooking for me is fun!  Even after a hectic day, I find it relaxing and somewhat therapeutic…

I’m originally from São Paulo, Brazil, and currently live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I love to travel and seek out new culinary experiences.

Since I was a child, I would spend hours admiring the care and love my mother and my grandmother would put into cooking.  It is through my upbringing that I strive every cooking moment to be more like them.  I truly enjoy cooking for people close to me and hosting dinner parties, a trait inherited from my parents and both sides of our family.

I would love your feedback and hope our cooking friendship leads to many great recipes!

Enjoy the blog, and most importantly, the food you make from it!

Thank you for your visit.  Until our next dinner party!

    Dearest, a plan in action!
    Whatelse could me more reward to?
    We taste so many fresh pasta in Piemonte and their recipe for white truffle season is a dish called Tarajin which takes 35 eggs for one kilo of flour! Isn’t amazing? At least, that portion serves 32-36 people!
    anyway, we will buy the machine soon to try your recipe!
    Well done, xx
