Natalina Cherubino



Natalina Cherubino née Ieraci emigrated from Italy to Australia with her mum and two sisters in 1958, joining her dad on an isolated bush block in the south-west of Western Australia.

Like so many of their fellow emigrées, Natalina's parents created a life for themselves through hard work and determination. Today Natalina lives in the Perth inner suburb of Subiaco. She has five children and 13 grandchildren. 
Natalina's teaches pasta-making at her popular cooking classes. She is a member of Slow Food Perth.


The book is about my journey back to my birthplace, Italy, Calabria and what a journey it was.”I want you the reader, to follow me through the many experiences I encountered. From visiting La Rocca my home to reuniting with my family & friends, it was the once thriving villages in which I found the little surprises along the way.
