About Tess Vella-Colette
My name is Tess Vella, I’m just a gal living it up in Downtown Dayton. I’ve got a very handsome husband, and an (unfortunately, toothless) but equally handsome cat named Tim and Pas de Chat, respectively.
I’ve spent most of my life in the restaurant business, smiling at diners, slinging drinks, and learning to appreciate the finer things in life; though sometimes on a tuna can budget. I am a home cook and baker, and I love to entertain. You can find more of my food, drink, and party planning tips on my blog Ciao Vella! www.ciaovellablog.com
