Hi! I'm Amanda, chief recipe developer, food photographer, and blog writer behind Saporito Kitchen. Here you will find tasty seasonal homemade recipes that are handcrafted and designed to inspire, like my Old School Italian Gravy or Simple Sunday Pot Roast Dinner.
👩🏻🍳 About Amanda
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 for 15 years. Through all my experiences, I have developed a deep love and respect for all things food as well as the art of cooking. I enjoy developing new recipes and challenging myself to improve on the classics. Teaching others the fundamentals of cooking is also a passion of mine.
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.
🍽 Why Saporito Kitchen?
Why Saporito Kitchen you ask? In Italian, Saporito means "tasty". I love Italian food, which you will definitely see a lot here. While a lot of my recipes are 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.
