My name is Annalisa Pompeo, I'm Protected content I don't mind revealing my age, lol) and I'm a single mom of 2 wonderful kids: Chiara Protected content Marco (8). I'm a chef and I have been running my own business for 6 years, which provides Sicilian cooking classes and food tours in the Agrigento area in Sicily but initially I started off my career as an accountant, specialised in Payroll, after I completed a master's in HR. Surprised?🤣😂
Finally I reached a point of my life when I realised that pursuing a career in my field of study, didn't make me happy so I worked very hard to achieve what I really wanted! I needed to show my kids that, if you have a dream and you really believe in it, you have to put all your efforts into making it a reality. Today I'm very happy even if it is not always easy.
I love to promote my land, Sicily, showing my clients how easy it is to cook and eat fresh and healthy food, (the traditional Sicilian way), but ingredients must be of the finest quality. My cooking philosophy, which coincides also with my life philosophy, is to try to live in an AUTHENTIC WAY.
Before the pandemic, I used to travel frequently taking my cooking classes around the world, and also promoting my local producers and their products.
This Pandemic has been very challenging for my business and once again I had to reinvent myself. I selected the best local producers, I designed different menus and recorded my cooking lessons to go inside my special cooking boxes.
