Interesting fact about me
I'm the Creative Director at Meal Sharing!
I am 100% foodcentric. My entire life revolves around food and the entire dining experience. I write a food column for a newspaper, blog, consult for restaurants & bars, podcast about dates & dinners, and I have a web series called Breaking Bread, which is essentially about cooking & eating with strangers -- oh, and I was on Master Chef Season 7. I also work with several local chefs in Long Beach and Los Angeles, who are eager to share their own creative menu ideas in super cool venues with RAD people. Check out some of my monthly pop dinners that are also posted on Meal Sharing. Any and all are welcome! My blog: www.foodfashionfoolishfornication.com My website: www.ginaruccione.com
Why I Share Meals
I want to meet new people, share amazing food and have interesting conversations. Let's connect!
Places I’ve Traveled
I fell in love with traveling at a young age. When I was 15 years old I backpacked through Japan and then went on to attend high school in Sicily. I've been to Spain, France, Shanghai and Ireland. My traveling experiences have been incredibly rewarding. I love meeting new people and exploring exotic (and some not so exotic) places. "Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends." - Maya Angelou
A Memory of a Home-Cooked Meal
I'm a cuisine writer & eat out often, but I have to say that all of my fondest food memories have been at someone else's home (or my own) eating a fabulous home-cooked meal. Sometimes the food is only as good as the company and wine it's paired with-- being with great people and enjoying a simple meal is one of life's greatest pleasures.
