TONIA ESPOSITO – CREATOR AND ADMINISTRATOR
Born in Naples in 1979, I learned all the ancient secrets of Neapolitan cuisine from my mother Elvira, daughter of a cook, baker and pizza maker. When I lived in Naples, during my university studies, I worked a lot in hotel kitchens and took local cooking classes. Here in Brussels, I am still constantly studying to perfect my knowledge in catering and marketing in the food sector.
From 2004 to 2018 I worked in Rome in the communication and public relations departments of several NGOs involved in the field of environmental protection and human rights. I was responsible for managing major projects, media relations and events.
Arrived in Brussels with my family in 2018, I decided to combine all my passions and skills, both human and professional: my cultural identity, to create, to connect people, to cook, to take care of others and, above all, being so damn Neapolitan. I founded Napulitana in Brussels to take care of people in the unique style of Neapolitan mothers and to share a slice of my precious and unique cultural heritage and the Neapolitan lifestyle that I always carry with me.
My goal is to replicate the Napulitana experience in other places in Belgium and Europe!
What I do at the Ambasciata Napulitana: Cook, general coordination and development, relations with suppliers, communication and public relations, calendar of cultural and private events, organization of cooking classes.
“I only exist because inside me I remained above all and uniquely Neapolitan. Naples exists in me and always will. Fortunately, there is this treasure in me and, when I need it, I take it out.”
