Hi, I’m Chiara!
I apply to my business the same approach that I have in my everyday life: being more intuitive about food, enjoying it, and becoming more aware of what you eat can easily be part of your days, and can be a true celebration of great tasty food. Freedom, joy, and confidence to choose what is best for you: this is what helps to create a lifestyle that is a real support for your mental and physical well-being!
I’m passionate about chemistry, nutrition, cooking, photography, and holistic therapies. I have a background in chemistry, nutrition, and massage, but I also had the chance to collaborate for a few years with a photographer, I’ve learned to cook from scratch experimenting in my kitchen and I practice yoga. I always try to keep myself updated with newly published studies, testing new ingredients while cooking, getting the influence of different cultures and getting to know as much as possible about local products and producers, seasonality and sustainability. During the years, I had the chance to see that a more conscious lifestyle can truly change your life.
After a few years working in research, I’ve decided to turn my passions and studies into one unique project to help others in changing their relationship with food from the roots.
What is food made of? What happens while cooking? What does food provide to the body? Chemistry is involved not only in the composition of food, but it’s also behind processes such as cooking or storage, metabolic reactions or vitamin absorption, just to name a few. Food has a high chemical complexity that influences all the consequent desired or undesired reactions that may occur. Such a highly complex system might be difficult to break down for a useful everyday purpose. That’s where I come in. Looking at food, nutrition and the science behind it: that’s a practical and comprehensive approach to food, compounds that can be useful for the body, dietary advice, and cooking. I constantly try to relate chemistry and nutrition, searching for the right answer to any doubt with a scientific point of view. I always believed that chemistry is a powerful and versatile instrument to make a difference in the world, and being interested in nutrition is just another way of talking about chemistry.
