Truola is the Latin word for “serving spoon” or “Ladle”. We loved the word's connection to food and just like a ladle, Truola is here to serve you.
We’re three family men who are passionate about cooking and good food; we especially like making mealtime a family social event with many friends, kids and fun. The idea for this site came to us when we realised that the best recipe is your own recipe, the way you like it!
That is why we created Truola for you. You’re the star of the show and you choose what your mealtimes look like; we’ve thrown in some of our suggestions, and tools to get you started and make cooking more enjoyable.

“I have been cooking in restaurants and the catering for over 20 years. I have always found great satisfaction in cooking with quality ingredients and searching for great surprising and tasty combinations. I think it is important to know what you eat and I find that the shortest route for ingredient to the dinner table is often the tastiest and the healthiest.
I can cook something exotic for my family party or I can cook for 300 people at a conference. In all cases I will do my best to make my guests enjoy what they are eating and ask for more. I never get bored or tired of cooking and with this site we want cooking to be an easy and inspiring thing to do for you as well.If you want to make really great meals don’t just cook to feed someone, but share the warmth of your heart. Don’t think of food, think of expressing your care."

“Cooking is a great opportunity to bring people together. Today we all rush. Social networks give us an illusion of engagement and involvement into social activities. But internet can help arrange parties and bring people together but not substitute live communication or chat! That is why we are so keen about the features we implement in Truola like creating events or occasions where you can invite people. Great food is a great compliment to get together of great friends!”
