Paula Jones, a blogger on Italian food being featured in our series on Nudo’s international foodie friends, is one of our favourite discoveries of the past few months. Not only is she a much-loved blogger at Bellalimento.com, but she is also quite the foodiepreneur (yes, food entrepreneur) turning her passion into a profitable online media business and recently launching a second blog at PaulaDoesPasta.com. So we asked her to share a bit about her background and her food philosophy with us. Here’s what Paula had to say:
I was born in Georgia, but had the honor of being raised around the States & Europe. One of my many homes was in Italy. Where I fell in love. Yes deeply, madly, passionately, head over heels in love with Italy from the moment my plane landed! I loved and continue to LOVE everything about Italy! It’s culture, its people, its architecture, and especially its food.
I am not a professional chef. I am just a cook. Someone who is passionate about food, especially Italian food. My recipes are all authentic and come from the many years that I lived in Italy & from my trips back to visit.
Bell’alimento is Italian for ‘beautiful food’. My food philosophy is simply “beautiful food doesn’t have to be complicated”. Italian food is about simple, quality ingredients that are combined with love and are meant to be shared with family & friends! Punto! (period) I share my passion for Italian food and my recipes on my foodblog at www.bellalimento.com
