Headshot of Amanda Scarlati from Saporito Kitchen

Hi, my name is Amanda, Owner + Creator of Saporito Kitchen, a food blog based on my love of cooking and all things food. Here you will find tasty seasonal homemade recipes that are handcrafted and designed to inspire.

Food and cooking have always been a big part of my life since I can remember. As a kid, I used to get up early on Saturday mornings and park myself in front of the TV. Not to watch cartoons though, but cooking shows rather. Yep, that’s right, cooking shows. I would sit with my pen and pad of paper and take notes on everything the PBS greats had to offer. Martin Yan, Justin Wilson, Julia Child, you name it.

I’m a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef and have worked in the food business for over 10 years. Through all my experiences, I have developed a deep love and respect for food and the art of cooking.

I currently reside in Utah with my husband and our four children. When I’m not cooking, I like spending time with my family and being outdoors.  I enjoy developing new recipes and challenging myself to improve on the classics. Teaching others the fundamentals of cooking is also a new passion of mine. I want to help others develop the same love that I have for cooking.

Saporito Kitchen

Why Saporito Kitchen you ask? In Italian, Saporito means “tasty“. I love Italian food, which you will see a lot of in this blog. While a lot of my recipes will be influenced by Italian cuisine, I promise, that all of them will be tasty. My goal with Saporito Kitchen is to help others to cook inspired, but most importantly, eat tasty.
