Guest Chef Michela Tartagliaof Pasta Casalinga
Michela was born and raised in Torino and spent her summers on her grandmother' olive farm in the remote area of Irpinia, the inland of Naples. Her passion for cooking was gained through the observation and humble repetition of what her mother, Gina, and grandmothers, Rosa and Michela, taught. Coming from a farmers background, she made the natural decision of embracing the statement "we are what we eat."
Friends for decades, Michela and Nathan bring their respective Italian and Northwestern roots together at Pasta Casalinga to create rustic, homestyle, everyday food to feed and create community in the heart of Pike Place Market.
