Hi, my name is Mila. I was born in Florence, Italy. My family moved to several places in my early childhood and then settled in Florida when I was 12. Both of my parents are sculptors and followed their dreams of traveling and selling their art. My hubby (Mark) moved to Florida (from Peru) when he was 12. We have two wonderfully spunky kids and live in Wellington, FL.
I’ve always had the curiosity of how food is made. I grew up in the kitchen, learning everything I could from my mom. Later, as I was studying at UCF, I found myself looking forward to cooking every night with my roommate and Mark. I left UCF in pursuit of all things culinary. I graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in 2007. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing people; Most notably at, Osteria di Passignano (Chianti Country, Italy), Melissa Kelly’s: Primo (Orlando, FL), and most recently at the Silver Spork Food Truck.
While at the CIA, I took every job I could get. I worked front and back of the house at weddings, large events, corporate meetings, cooking classes, private dining, etc…
and even once on set at an Italian cooking show.
Needless to say… cooking is a bit more than just a hobby for me. There’s always something more to discover.
