Meet the Family

She’s gonna make him a dinner he can’t refuse… Meet la Famiglia Vitale, the husband and wife team behind Vitalian Kitchen!

Allison and Vincent got married in August of 2018. It was the perfect Vitalian Wedding, less than 5 years after she made him the first dinner he couldn’t refuse: Bucatini Carbonara with Pancetta. Shortly after this meal, he was smitten and they’ve been inseparable ever since. This blog is an account of their life together through cuisine.

By the way, why am I writing in third person? It makes it less personal. And for us, it’s always personal.

While I’m busy dishing the details behind the delicious meals my hot wife concocts in the kitchen, we’ll also indulge you with our tales of travel. A corporate event planner by day, Allison’s work often sends her around the world, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be invited on occasion. (Never mind those places we go when she’s not working.) Whether it’s Ireland or Italy, or Toronto or Tokyo, join us on our journeys as we explore what the local culture has to offer, which mostly entails stuffing our faces full of food.

Oh yah, we’ve also got this dog, and this kid that’s on the way, who’ll probably come up in conversation from time to time. But otherwise, we prefer to keep this meal-centric. So unless either of them stuffing their faces (they live with us), then we won’t mention them too often (as in pretty much all the time).

I’ll quit yammering now. My wife just told me dinner’s ready. And she doesn’t like to be kept waiting. So please, excuse me, as–oh wait, she just told me you’re invited… I’m not sure what she made tonight, but whatever it is I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed. Would you care to join us?

On that note, welcome to the family.

But remember; once you join this family, you’re in for life.

Ciao,
Allison & Vincent
