Touché is excited to introduce our new recipe guru, Elena Hoarau Davis.
Elena Hoarau Davis was born in Sardegna, Italy (home of her mother’s family) on July 28, 1984. After her birth she lived with her parents in Paris, France until the age of six. Her parents then moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where they fell in love with the mountains and stayed ever since! Having a deep rooted connection to her Italian family Elena spent every summer of her childhood and young adult life on the beaches of Sardegna with her grandparents, cousins, and other relatives.
In Italian culture food is the thread of life. Food is: tradition, family, laughter, joy, memories, and most of all a love language that binds generations. The old grandmothers converse all morning and afternoon plotting their next meals and comparing recipes. This is where Elena developed her passion for cooking, baking, and most of all sharing her food around tables of new acquaintances, old friends, and family. In addition to dreaming up recipes Elena is busy raising her sweet children and is a part-time reading specialist at Innovations Early College High School in Salt Lake City. She also enjoys running, hiking, and spending time/traveling with her family- including yearly Sardegna trips to visit family. Elena currently lives in Bountiful, Utah with her two beautiful children and loving husband.
Follow along as she shares her delicious recipes! Enjoy.
