Welcome to our Italian kitchen! We are Lora and Gabriella, the mother-daughter team behind Savoring Italy. Our kitchen is a place where we love to cook and bake, and we hope that you will enjoy our recipes as much as we do.
We live in Florida, in the southern U.S., and also go back and forth to Italy to our second home. I (Lora) started Savoring Italy in 2010 as a fun way to document my baking, family stories, and authentic Italian recipes that I learned cooking with my mamma, nonna, and my suocera (Calabrese mother-in-law). It has since grown into so much more, but everything is tested and proven to be delicious!
Our Italian recipes are all authentic dishes that we have learned from our family (mamma, nonna, and nonna in Italy). We hope that you will enjoy trying out these recipes in your kitchen!
There is something for everyone here! We hope you’ll be inspired to get cooking (or baking) something new and totally homemade.
How it started and where we are now:
This project that started in 2010 as a place to document all that I (Lora) was cooking for my little ones, has now blossomed into teamwork, and a full-time family business. I’m covering all the recipe development (research, cooking + and big mess clean up!) and my daughter Gabby photographing, creating amazing videos, and bringing all of these delicious dishes to vivid life.
You’ll find us on any given day cooking together, working in our studio, and enjoying our creations with our big family.
We work hard to create recipes that are inclusive of many sorts of diets, but do not follow one diet. So you’ll find traditional Italian (lots of PASTA), some gluten-free, vegan, Whole30, and even dairy-free. Our goal is that there will be something for your family that you’ll run to the kitchen and make!

We truly enjoy sharing easy, and quick weeknight dinners, but also have a passion for homemade pasta, sauces, and sourdough! You’ll find beloved holiday recipes and some cocktails to enjoy.
We know that quality and balance are so important in creating and sharing meals.
