orn in Hong Kong, Tracy found herself happily living in Malaysia with her Italian husband, Alberto. Being married into an Italian family, she learned to cook and polish her Italian culinary skills by immersing herself in the family, the culture and environment.
Many of Tracy’s dishes are from the region of her husband's origin - Piacenza, the northern-most town of the region of Emilia-Romagna, which is a food haven known for its cheese ( parmigiano-reggiano) and ham (prosciutto and various other air-dried sausages).
Being Italian, Tracy’s husband enjoys cooking and entertaining friends at their home and Tracy fondly recalls the excited faces and the smiles of their guests when she and Alberto shared Italian dishes and culture with them. In 2009, Tracy decided to use cooking as a journey for personal growth and via food, to provide joy for others! She embarked on running a private kitchen and faced the challenges of having to learn new skills, gain confidence and to adapt herself to changes. She also enjoys teaching others via cooking classes. During her classes, she openly shares traditional culinary secrets that she learnt from Alberto's family.
