Eleonora Baldwin


American born and Italian raised, Eleonora Baldwin grew up in Rome in a family of filmmakers (her grandfather was the great Vittorio De Sica). She has always been passionate about art and travel, and early on showed great love for the Italian food culture. This aspect convinced her to revolutionize her professional life, moving from the film set to first becoming an appreciated food writer and then embarking on a journey as a TV presenter with Gambero Rosso HD. In the shows she co-wrote and hosts, "ABCheese", "Uazz'America" and "A tavola con mamma" she is always on the hunt for cheeses and regional specialties in their place of origin; she meets artisans and documents lesser-known products and insider culinary experiences.
