“The only disadvantage I’ve found in popularity is always feeling judged. In my case, it’s as if everything I cook must be an amazing explosion of flavors!”

Agnese (1989) is a psychologist, food blogger, and amateur chef from Sicily. “I am ambitious and always willing to get out there and improve myself,” she asserts. “I’m very close to my traditions, and it also shows in my dishes. I start from the ingredients traditional to my Sicily to create something new and innovate,” she says. Agnese got her passion for cooking from her mother, from whom she learned everything. She remembers, “I loved to watch her cook; I loved the smells and to plunge my hand into the dough for the bread that was prepared for the family’s Sunday lunch.” When not studying, cooking, writing, or attending food events, Agnese loves to jog and cycle, “especially in the summer. It’s a way for me to relax and keep in shape, you know, with all the tastings I have to do!” Agnese’s life motto is a quote of John Stuart Mill: “All good things which exist are the fruits of originality.” She recalls, “Once I was reading this book, and I found this quote. I fell in love with it. To me, as a creative person, it expresses what I believe, that in everything I do there’s a distinctive signature that makes it my unique creation.” Her future, however, promises a lot of travel. “I feel the urge to travel and to know new cultures and experiment with new things in other countries.” Next stop: Brazil.
