About Chef Bruna Green
Hello, I’m Bruna. Here you will find out all about where my knowledge and love for Parmesan cheese started, and for cooking as a whole for that matter.
My first knowledge of Parmesan came from my Mom, Clara, who is now 89 years young.
My husband Chris, can tell the story of when I first met him and I drove to the Italian Deli in Orange Grove to buy Parmiggiano, imported Italian pasta and Italian tinned tomatoes.
I was going to make him sauce for spaghetti for our evening meal. Being inexperienced (my Mom did all the cooking when I lived at home) the whole process took ages, needless to say, when he finally came home from work I pranced around to serve dinner which was a plate of pasta topped with napoletana sauce and parmesan cheese, (nearly as good as my Mom’s). When he went to the cupboard to take out the All Gold Tomato Sauce I was devastated.
I grew up with not even being allowed to have All Gold Tomato Sauce in the cupboard, never mind add this to a pasta dish. This is where it all began. Parmesan came together when I got married to Chris because once out of my Mom’s house, I had to start cooking and making use of all the ingredients that I grew up with.
