Hi, my name is Maria & welcome to Sunday Calm.
I live in Sydney Australia & I’m the recipe creator & voice of this site, which I hope you find to be relaxing & inspiring. I’ve been a foodie ever since I can remember, watching my family prepare for huge Italian feasts or baking traditional Italian biscotti.
Inspired by my Italian mum & grandmother, who were whizzes in the kitchen, my cooking is very much influenced by my Italian heritage, with specks of the Australian in me. Living in the multicultural diversity of Australia, I’m privileged to pick & choose any cuisine from all parts of the globe & this too adds richness, flavour & colour to my relaxed approach to food & lifestyle.
Why Sunday Calm? Well to me…
Sunday = A blissful day of rest. A day of gathering around the table for hours connecting with loved ones over nourishing, traditional food.
Calm = Tranquility, soothing & relaxing. Food & a style of living that evokes this in my life.
My blog reflects my food & life balance philosophy. Fast, recipes that use Fresh, seasonal ingredients to create Everyday recipes that bring people together.
We are all busy living life in the 21st Century – timesavers are a must!
I cook using seasonal produce ensuring the freshest, quality ingredients.
Nourishing, super simple recipes that can be made any day of the week for the whole family.
Sunday Calm is all about celebrating good quality food, good things & fun-ness in one’s life. Whilst I know Fun-ness is technically not a real word, it should be. Who couldn’t do with more FUN-NESS in ones life right??
This blog is not about complicated recipes that require intricate detail & precision. I just don’t have the time nor the patience for that. Nor is this site about compromising on flavour. (Disclosure: I will never, ever, ever scrimp on taste).
Since starting my blog, I find myself thinking about recipes all day long, working on ideas (though, I don’t think my boss would appreciate knowing that ssh…). so that I can share with you, ways to create fast, fresh, everyday, super simple meals you can enjoy & share with your loved ones.
Come & take a seat at the table & join the celebration of good food!
