Hi! My name is Beatrice but everybody calls me Bea! I'm an Italian tour guide and I am a real foody, as many Italian people I fell in love with food and cooking as soon as I could keep a fork in my hand! I love meeting people from everywhere in the world and sharing all the recipes my Grandma taught me!
