St Margaret's was delighted to welcome Mary Contini OBE, bestselling author, food writer, one of Scotland’s top chefs and owner of Italian deli Valvona & Crolla as a guest speaker in our latest Inspirational Women webinar.
Mary’s warm and fascinating account of her childhood and Italian upbringing was enjoyed by a large audience. We learnt about Mary’s distinguished career and the fascinating story of her family-run deli Valvona & Crolla in Edinburgh.
Mary talked passionately about the importance of quality ingredients and shared top tips on Italian cooking and healthy eating. We enjoyed hearing stories of her friends in the food industry and how they have influenced her over the years. She talked warmly about family life and her business, and shared advice to others thinking about a professional cooking career and restaurant ownership.
