Welcome to my blog about all things Italian and other passions in my life.  I’m a photographer dividing my time between New York and New England with the rest of my heart in Italy. I love cooking simple meals at home, choosing the perfect wine to compliment a meal, entertaining, studying the language and exploring beautiful places and foods to photograph.

I hope you enjoy my recipes that come from my grandmother, relatives in Rome and some of my own creations. I’ll be exploring Italy in more depth next year but for now I’ll share some things from the U.S. that I think you may find interesting and delicious!
Reach out to me if you have any comments or any photography, styling or writing projects coming up. I work and travel for food and wine anywhere and everywhere.

You can also see my work at lesliebrienzaphotography.com

Thanks for the visit!
