A dreamer with a-mile-long to do list. Between mainlining espresso, and putting in 16-hour days, you’re exhausted, stressed and running on empty … but, you also love your life.
(BEEN THERE - AHEM, PRETTY MUCH STILL THERE MOST DAYS.)
You're focused on your goals, but you can't build an empire or change the world with your BIG MAGIC if you don’t take care of yourself.
The good news? Visiting Italy is a lot more delicious than therapy.
It’s my joy to open my kitchen, and provide a place of peace and relaxation for busy dreamers like you to experience the real Tuscany—and learn to cook the Italian way.
It’s time to say yes to YOU… Cancel your calls and put away your to-do-list. Slow down and savor the sounds, smells, tastes, and flavors of Italy.
Book some downtime to recharge! Unplug from the mayhem, and come back energized and inspired... Cause you’re worth it!
I'm Melissa, your host & tour guide.
A Food Network chef, author, mamma, eternal optimist, wannabe-mermaid, and “dough therapist” (yep, it’s a thing)—
I'm also the founder of Susina Cucina, the gorgeous, Italian cooking school I manifested into my reality. I’m obsessed with Aperol spritzes, travel, and mouthwatering food… especially pizza and pasta.
