Passed down through generations of wonderful cooks in her family. She is also a Representative of Sicilian food and culture and is passionate about her homeland Sicily.

Australian-born to Sicilian immigrants and grandparents, she moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 1974 where she loves the richness of the produce, the serenity of the beach and the flow of the tourist trade.

It is these foundations that have paved the way for the creation of Carmela's Cucina Classes, a Sicilian cooking experience class.
