Maria Pasquale: How to be Italian

On Episode 27 of the Writers off the Page podcast, Maria Pasquale discusses her latest book, How to be Italian, her love affair with Italy and what it takes to be an award-winning food and travel writer.

Maria Pasquale was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, but with two Italian parents, Italy was always calling her name.


For the past decade she’s been working as an award-winning food and travel journalist in Rome and has just released her second book, How to be Italian.


How to be Italian is a beautiful celebration of the Italian lifestyle, culture and of course, the bel paese itself – Italy.


Through its pages you'll get a lesson in the dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing, as well as an education in drinking to savour the moment, travelling indulgently, and cherishing food and culture.
