Friends, Family and Farfalle

“When I feel like the day is great? Pasta. When I feel like I want the day to be great? Pasta. It’s just awesome.”- Jennifer Hyman

It would be impossible to discuss my love of travel and pasta without giving a special shout out to the friends and family who have inspired both. From my Italian friends, ( I met during a high school exchange program) who taught me the best brand of pasta to buy while in London – and the right way to cook it, to my grandfather who shared the family recipe passed down to him by my Italian great-grandmother, to my friend Gianna’s mom who taught me the correct way to bread a chicken for chicken maleness.

All of these people have played a major role in my love/addiction to pasta. They inspire me every day to try new things without the use of recipes and to discover my own ways of cooking pasta. Through their help and assistance, I have been able to use their guidance to make my own creations. One day I hope to be able to perfect a pasta that can be eaten for breakfast, similar to carbonara.

Hi, my name is Grace Fuller and I am passionate about two things in life - travel, and pasta. Both my parents are avid travelers. My mom is a travel writer and my dad is in the travel business, meaning I began exploring the world at a very young age. Eventually, I was inspired to venture out on my own to such amazing places as Thailand, Morocco, Bali, Italy, Greece, and more. My love of pasta began with my grandfather's recipe for spaghetti bolognese - which my whole family still refers to as "Pop-Pop's Meat Sauce". I learned how to make it on my own experimenting with different ingredients like spinach, olive oil, garlic, basil, and oregano. In Italy, I learned how to make the noodles from scratch. Pasta is my go-to food no matter where I am. I have literally searched for pasta restaurants in every city I have been to including Chang Mai in Thailand and the Greek Islands. Think of this blog as a pasta map of the world where I share insights into my favorite places around the globe and where to find a great bowl of pasta in each!
