P: I’m Pia from Pasadena, where I still live, with my husband, Davide. He is from Sicily, Italy. We are both designers.
P+D: It’s our life. We both grew up cooking and continue to do so every day. It makes Davide think of his momma – it’s our love language.
P: Veggies, protein, avocado.
D: Pasta alla norma!
P+D: Cooking defines our relationship. He makes me slow down and shows me so much of how he grew up and his culture.
P+D: Olive oil, garlic, tomato, red pepper (chili), bread (Davide), hot sauce (Pia).
P+D: Lucio Battisti
