Maria Rosario Lazzati Niada
Cooking has become important to HER life since she moved to London with her family in the 90’s: it shaped her identity and reinforced her roots; it brought the pleasure of conviviality to her new home. As an expat, she cooked everyday her family recipes and she explored new ones, she shared her food with neighbours and she made new friends. In 2000, she created Mani in pasta (hands on and knead) and for seven years she enjoyed teaching people practical cooking with a brush up on Italian language. In 2007 she became more adventurous in the gastronomic field by co-founding the Libaliano workshop with Claude. This was the inspiration for their books on Lentils , Chickpeas , 'Beans&Friends'
