Paola Lovisetti Scamihorn is an Italian pharmacist and food writer who is passionate about cooking, eating healthy food and staying active. She studied pharmacy at the University of Milan and attained her masters degree in medical and pharmaceutical research in Brussels. For her, “Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” As a child, Paola learnt to cook delicious, traditional Italian food from her mother, aunts and grandmother. Today, she continues to play in her kitchen and experiment with different tastes and textures to create her own recipes while remaining faithful to the authentic Italian traditions, flavors and ingredients. She has published three books on Italian cuisine—Love is Eating: Healthy and Tasty Italian Recipes for Family Meals, Honestly Healthy Authentic Italian and The Mama Mia! Diet: The Secret Italian Way to Good Health.
