Pure Happiness and” Allegria!”

Meet Sara! She is italian, passionate about cooking. Owned a Restaurant in Padova Italy with Husband Chef Critelli and one in England. Lives now in Des Moines with Diego and 3 kids, and anxiuos to share with us her cooking knoledge. This is few words from her:

“I was born in a country where food and culture are everything and everywhere but passion is another thing!!

I met a young curios and passionate man , many years ago , who open to me his heart, his life, his passion and more than this(and for that reason i married him too🥳, my dear Diego Critelli!!)

We worked together and year by year I found my way : cook and serve food to everyone is curious to try something different (that it doesn’t mean strange or upper level, just make with love and we know how this is important for everyone!!)

Anyway, I met Alessandra many years ago and I think that we have the same emphasis so, come and join a couple of hours with us and be ready to laughing a lot:this is the best way for us to share what we know!! Enjoy
