Hi my name is Francesca McGrath and welcome to my food blog. The name of this blog “ Food for the Italian Soul” was inspired by my mother who loves to cook and bake. Living in Calgary, Alberta, and away from home I became a foodie. There is nothing better than your mothers cooking and since I cant get it every day, I had no choice but to start cooking like her. Luckily for me, she is only a phone call away. Our phone conversations have gone to what’s new in your life, to look what I made last night. She takes full pride in her food and in what she bakes, and for that she inspires me to be the best cook out there. I am also married to someone who also inspires me to cook and try new things in the kitchen. Even when they don’t turn out the way I would have liked it to he will still eat it and say how good it is. Such a great man he is!!

I have a passion for cooking and trying to make each recipe my own. Tweaking little ingredients here and there and making it till I have perfected the recipe. There is so many great things to try and so little time to make them. I wouldn’t say I am a great cook, but my love for food and cooking shows in every dish that I create. In this blog, I will post recipes I have tried, recipes that are  on my top list of foods and dishes that take me back to when I was a child and to this day I still make it.

I can only hope this blog will inspire others to try something new, whether it be cooking, baking, writing or blogging. When you try something new it opens you up to world of new possibilities.
