Ciao, I am Giulia Scarpaleggia, a Tuscan born and bred country girl, a home cook, a food writer and a photographer. I teach Tuscan cooking classes in my house in the countryside in between Siena and Florence, where my family has been living since the 1920’s and where I live now with my husband, Tommaso, and our dog, Noa. 
I’ve been sharing honest, reliable Italian recipes for 10 years now, through my cookbooks and this blog.

If you love everything about Italian food, big crowded tables and seasonal ingredients, join us and follow our podcast “Cooking with an Italian accent“.

Why an Italian accent? Well, I’m pretty sure you can hear it when I talk, and you can taste it when I cook. I invite you into our home in the Tuscan countryside, into this busy kitchen and into my well stocked pantry.

In each episode, we talk about traditional food and the memories it stirs up, we meet friends and producers and we build up an appetite for Italian food.

I will also answer listeners’ questions about Italian and Tuscan cooking, about that pack of dried cannellini beans you do not know how to use, about extra virgin olive oil or our love for stale bread. So, if you have a question in your mind, just email me at or join our Facebook Group Cooking with Juls’ Kitchen. I’ll answer your questions at the end of each episode.

Episode 29 – My 2020 word: intentionality

Until a few years ago, come January I would write a list of goals and good intentions. I felt productive, optimist, effective. Within a few months, though, that list would…
