Celebrity Chefs & Guests

Elana Iaciofano
Elana Iaciofano

Elana Iaciofano works as Creative Director and “Snack Enthusiast” for Colavita Olive Oil.

What's a Snack Enthusiast? It's a title she gave herself to sound funny. But it is indeed appropriate. Elana enjoys cooking, often spending countless hours exploring her kitchen with various culinary experiments for which family members, friends, occasional strangers, stray dogs and sometimes the fire department keep finding their way back to her kitchen, attracted by the enticing aromas.
