Hi, I’m Rossella, the foodblogger, the soul behind Ma che ti sei mangiato.
What does it mean Ma che ti sei mangiato? It could be translated as What have you eaten? It tries to express my surprise in front of the ability of my guineapig to eat almost everything, everything that I cook
Guineapig? Who is he? Simple, he is my boyfriend. I named him usually as guineapig here on the blog. You can see each of us while we were in Ghent (Belgium) for a bike and beer holiday.
How does it born? I’m talking of the blog. I started it in december 2008 after some pressure from friend, guineapig and sister (Fiorella). At the beginning, i hadn’t any ambition to become a blogger. Now I just want to be a good blogger, learning more how to cook and how to communicate effectively my passion.
Why a(nother) foodblog? I desider to collect the recipe that I test. Recipe after recipe, I’ve learn something and discover new food-related topic that now I share in the blog.
Food-related topics? Such as dinner with friends, favourite restaurants, history of food, hot issues about food and cooking.
Why this In English page?
To collect all the link referring to my post written in English. I sometimes post even in English, my English. Being Italian, my English competencies are growning day by day thanks to years of study, years of English reading, other blogs, and time plus patience. I promise to update that list day after day, better post after post.
