Hi! My name is Kristina!

I'm 45. I was born in Trieste and raised by an Austrian mother (which is why my name is spelled with a K!) and a father from Naples. I now live in Asolo. I teach yoga at a cultural centre near my home three times a week. It's a passion that took root by chance ten years ago, when I signed up for a course after being urged to try it by a friend. Would I be able to touch the tips of my toes with both hands? Sometimes, I couldn't even bend down to tie my shoes because of the constant backache I had. Well, I accepted the challenge. After two months, my backache was gone, and I began to love this type of exercise and the marvellous world that surrounds it. I'm now a specialised, third-level teacher!

I devote the rest of my free time to my great passion, which is cooking. I adore spending hours at the stove, creating new dishes that are strictly organic and vegetarian.

I'm a combination of different cultures, traditions and lifestyles, and that combination is especially reflected in what I cook. In my dishes, Nordic precision is blended with southern Italian passion, and the result is always unique.

I choose only ingredients that are in season, which I buy in the old type of shop where the owner "coddles" you without being in a rush.

I often have certain special items shipped directly to my home by relatives who live far away. Buffalo mozzarella from Uncle Tonino is my favourite, followed by chocolates made in my cousin Ingrid's pastry shop. I always keep some around!

I love to cook, but I hate to eat alone, without being able to chat with someone.

That's why I signed up with Gnammo a few months ago. It's really, really nice having guests who share and appreciate my dishes.
It's so satisfying!

The last time, I met a truly nice couple. She's a painter who's staying in Asolo temporarily because she's putting on an exhibit, and he's a journalist who's here for a documentary on our famous castle.

These two people seem totally different: she's a romantic dreamer, and he's a bit cold, but always has a wisecrack on the tip of his tongue. We promised we'd see each other again soon. And that's another nice thing about Gnammo: meeting new, interesting people!

I wanted to revisit that same menu from the vegetarian standpoint and choose (as always) ingredients from this new season that exclusively come from small local farms.

The location is the terrace at my house, which I'm going to decorate for this special dinner with scented candles, soft lights and coloured flowers. It'll seem like we're dining in an enchanted forest!

If you're intolerant of or allergic to any ingredient, let me know and I'll change your menu.

And oh yes, I have a Siamese cat who's eleven. He's used to roaming around the house, but doesn't care for company, so at some point he goes and hides in his box.

“It was the first time I'd gone to a dinner where I didn't know the other guests. I just gave it a go, and I'm glad I did! I became friends with light-hearted, interesting people, and Kristina proved to be a very cordial lady of the house. She's a great cook, too! Worth doing again!"


“Autumn equinox in an enchanted forest. What a magnificent evening! The excellent food and great company made the evening truly magical.”


“Kristina served a very appetizing and tasty vegetarian meal. It'd been a long time since I'd tasted the true flavours of nature like this. The table was decorated with the theme of the evening, and it was marvellous!”

“Kristina prepared some mashed potatoes without the sherry, just for me. I really appreciated that. Her terrace was the perfect place to celebrate the coming of Autumn. I simply adored the little lamps hanging everywhere: I'm going to copy this idea for my next dinner!”

“I had a great time! Light-hearted people and a very friendly lady of the house. There wasn't a single awkward moment. The menu was excellent, and the plating was impeccable.”


“The three hours simply flew by! We laughed a lot and ate really well. I love meat, but I didn't miss it at all. Thanks, Kristina!”


“Welcome, Autumn! I couldn't have chosen a better dinner for celebrating the new season. The pear cake was superb. I could have eaten two more slices! I asked Kristina for the recipe, and I'm going to try it out tomorrow.”

Gnammo is the first all-Italian platform dedicated to #SocialEating! Gnammo offers everyone the chance to organise a lunch, a dinner or an event at their home or at any private location. This will allow you to test your cooking skills and to meet new friends at your own dinner table.
