About me...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!


My name is Nicoletta and I was born in 1987 on a small island of the lagoon called Lido. Having an Irish mother and a Venetian

father, I grew up between two countries, developing a strong passion for all things food and all things art.


During my university years I worked in a gourmet wine-bar in Rialto to finance my studies and that's when my curiosity towards the food world exploded. Since then, widening my culinary horizons has become a sort of mission and, after graduating with honors in Conservation of the Cultural Heritage, I have continued being involved the industry, combining my main passions whenever I could: food, photography and storytelling.

After a series of travels and work experiences abroad, I permanently settled in the lagoon and got married to a Venetian. Currently I work as freelance photographer (see portfolio) and digital content creator. 

I'm  always curious to learn about new projects, if interested in a collaboration, please send me an email at .
