Walter is a professional filmmaker, blogger and storyteller whose work appears on Food Network and Cooking channel among many others. He counts multiple Emmy and Peabody awards among his many professional honors. Rebecca was a professional sound designer who recently retired from broadcast television. See Walter’s work here:

Growing up in an Italian-American household, the kitchen was the heart of Walter’s upbringing. He spent more time in that kitchen than most families spend in their living rooms. At 8 years old he cooked a pork roast for the family. That started his lifelong love affair with all things food and culinary.

Today, the pair love to travel, cruise, eat and cook. The “holy trinity” of living. We figured it was time to start sharing our love of life and lifestyle with all of you.
