Welcome to Garlic & Olive Oil; I’m your host, Emily Vannoni. I started this blog because I love food. I love to cook, I love to eat and I want you to love it too.

Food has always been a huge part of my life.  It brings us all together. There is nothing like sitting around the table with your loved ones and truly enjoying a meal… the people, the conversation, the atmosphere and, of course, the food.

I am not a professional chef or food photographer.  I am a home cook, cooking in my actual kitchen, taking most of the pictures you see with my phone.  It may not be fancy but it is real.  So, take a look around; I hope you like what you see. Use it, improve upon it, make it your own. Bring your family and friends together around the table and enjoy your labor of love. Share laughs, make memories and create your own traditions.

Mangia! Mangia!
