About Lorena: Lorena Autuori is an Italian born and raised in Salerno, Italy. After meeting her American husband almost 30 years ago and having children; Lorena and Greg moved their family to San Gemini. San Gemini is 40 minutes north of Rome, nestled into the beautiful Umbrian countryside. There, Lorena would gradually discover that she was a chef at heart – and she slowly began to build a business as a Chef and Cooking Teacher to tourists who arrive each Spring and Summer. Though there is not nearly the touristic trade in San Gemini as there is in Florence or Tuscany, there is a consistent flow of visitors to the beautiful towns and Villas that are secretly tucked away in this historic village. Lorena continued to learn – and joined the culinary academy ALMA run by chef Gualtiero Marchesi. Lorena, naturally, is a proficient chef. With the professional training, her dishes and recipes only got better – and she learned to teach her students from being taught so well.
