About Italian Belly

About Me

Thanks for coming to my blog!

I’m Chandra, a Canadian from Vancouver and the blogger behind Italian Belly.  I moved to Italy almost 7 years ago and have been adjusting, learning and loving Italian life ever since. Italian Belly is a collection of my observations on life and cuisine in Northern Italy. It’s also  a place where you can find recipes that have been tested (and approved!) by my Italian friends and family and a place where I share my joys, fears and discoveries about becoming a mamma.

If you dream of living in Italy, this is for you.

If you are living the dream (and occasional nightmare) in Italy, this is for you.

If you like simple and tasty Mediterranean food recipes, this is for you.

If you want to avoid making a fool of yourself in Italy whether it be at the table, on the street or in a bar, this is DEFINITELY for you.

If you just want to relate and laugh at my embarrassing language mishaps and cultural misunderstandings then this is also for you.

And, if you are looking to start a family, are pregnant or learning to become a mom whether you live in Italy or not, this is for you.

Which one are you? The dreamer, the expat, the foodie, the mom-to-be?
