  • Born and raised in a family of food lovers, Elettra's childhood was filled with home-cooked meals made skillfully and with fresh, healthy ingredients, igniting her passion for all types of food.
  • She has traveled the world exploring diverse culinary cultures, including the Central African Republic and Australia, where she sampled a variety of cuisines and ingredients and developed a deep understanding of the art of cooking.
  • After discovering a gluten intolerance, Elettra was forced to adapt to a new style of eating. She discovered ways to make her favorite recipes taste as good as the glutenous varieties and learned to identify the many naturally gluten-free dish options available at most quality restaurants.


Elettra began her career in writing and publishing as an editorial assistant at Guernica magazine, where she read submissions, copy-edited stories, promoted them on social media, and wrote reported stories of her own. At Harper's Magazine, she fact-checked web stories and the Index section and actively participated in editorial meetings. Since leaving Harper's, she has continued to write occasional stories for them, while also translating their monthly Publisher's Note from the original French. She currently lives in Turin, Italy, where she spends her time sampling new restaurants and developing her taste for Piedmontese reds. On any given night, you might find her enjoying artisanal buckwheat bread dipped in pink peppercorn and lemon-infused oil at a fine dining establishment or digging into a bowl of food truck-produced ramen, exquisite in its simplicity.


Elettra has studied at some of the top writing programs in the United States, including the University of Iowa's Writer's Workshop and Columbia University, where she earned an MFA in creative writing with a certificate in literary translation.
