Maccari’s culinary passion started in her childhood, thanks to both her mother and grandmother strict connection with her. Starting in 2003 with Villa Patriarca, the family business, Katia’s passion transformed into love, making her the culinary artist she is today. From her 3 children -Valerio, Matilde e Pietro- Katia learned that dishes are simply good, or bad.
