Ciao! Hello!

UPDATED 1 AUG 2020: 

Well, we are getting thru this pandemic... time to start planning for the future!

Well, I've kept the faith, prayed a lot and continued doing

what I do...

I've been COOKING!

I know that eventually we will celebrate and commune and travel and eat together.  This world has seen tragedies before. 

This isn't the first and it isn't the last. What is most important is what we do with what we have learned.  

I believe that this has been the perfect opportunity for getting back to the table... at least with our immediate families!  But hey that is how habits are formed... by doing them over and over

(during a quarantine!)

SO, I'm still available for face to face online cooking lessons AND you can do me the kindest of favors and subscribe to my YouTube channel...

You see, I've been giving away cooking and recipe content for free along with a little of my personal, self proclaimed Italian Mamma wisdom!   If you'd like to help me out a bit... please Subscribe to my channel. IT COSTS YOU NOTHING to hit the YouTube SUBSCRIBE button! 

And you will also get all my cool content for being a subscriber!  



I am getting ready to set the dates for 2021 Italy trips... so stay tuned on this site and my Dorina's Kitchen FB page for updates!


I wish you all a safe time right now as we all navigate coming out of this crazy, lonely, stir crazy quarantine time... Just remember...  I am still online LIVE AT 11ish most days! (we are in the process of packing up our house to move so some of my days are crazy but if you hit the little bell on my FB'll be notified when I go live!)

  You can also message me etc... and I will answer!  So bring on the questions, suggestions and comments...

I'm waiting!!!

Sending you all LOVE, hugs and kisses!  



Dorina's Kitchen is the place for anyone who wants to learn to cook or expand their home cooking repertoire. I specialize in teaching simple, easily reproducible meals that are healthy, tasty and mostly quick to make! Many are family friendly and I throw some in that are definitely company friendly! Come join us!! I will teach you what you need to know to become a great home cook. 


My goal is to share with you what I believe is an important life skill and share with you the passion that goes along with it! All joys, sorrows, and big decisions in life happen in the kitchen or at the table. Come learn about food and all that happens where food is made!

When we cook, we naturally gravitate towards "the table".  We need to get back families, communities and a society.  

I encourage you to seek out your own heritages and traditions. 

Learn the recipes that go with them and then create your own family traditions with YOUR family at YOUR table.  

This is the Roseto Effect. It's not JUST what you eat.  It's how you eat it. 


It will bond you. It will nourish you.
