Maple is the symbol of Canada. Saffron is Abruzzo’s one.
Alessia is half Canadian, Fabrizio is 100% from Abruzzo.
Saffron is the best-known symbol of Abruzzo in Italy; it’s the symbol of its gentle but strong heart, one of the emblems of its tasty and genuine cuisine! Saffron represents Fabrizio, professional musician with a deep love for jazz, a past as sous-chef and a passion for travels. World-wide spirit, after 20 years of trips around the world, he met Alessia and together they kept deeply exploring Abruzzo and Italy’s best kept secrets.
Maple represents Alessia, language teacher, grown up in Italy with a love for taste and traditional food.
She’s been traveling since she was 12, but she always goes back to her first love, Abruzzo! Making gnocchi with her “nonna” since she was 5, she loves cooking and travelling, discovering new places and their gastronomic traditions; she believes a good meal can change your entire life forever.
