langoustines shrimp porcini saute - 2

“What would I tell your father?” Those were the words uttered by my husband before he walked out the door for work a few days ago. Deep down inside I’ve known that he’s been worried about providing and protecting for me and hypothetically for the kiddies we don’t yet have. But when those words came […]

Sign at the market saying  he's the "King of the Porcini"

15$ worth of worms. That’s how I learned that porcini mushrooms should not be stored in plastic bags. At the time I was working organizing a fashion conference in Milan. There was a weekly market just a few blocks from my office. On clear fall days my colleague and I would grab some rosemary and […]

ex-boyfriend1

(scroll down for English Version) Sei (abbastanza) sicura che lui non sia l’uomo che fa per te. Ma come riuscirai a dimenticare il tuo ex e pensare a un nuovo fidanzato? Ti spiego: un po’ di tempo fa, ho letto un articolo su Grazia.it che si intitolava “Ti ha lasciato, ringraziarlo“; c’erano delle citazioni carine sull’amore, […]

cenaconme-focetola-11

The flash mob dinner party has returned to Milan! And as one would expect from the Milanese/Italians it comes with a heavy dose of style. Accordingly, this years edition of Cenaconme  (“Have dinner with me”) is all about the hats, Chapeau!  The slogan being “se non potete essere eleganti…siate almeno stravaganti!” “if you can’t be […]

When you are as familiar with two cultures as I am you begin to see the idiosyncrasies in those cultures. And since I’m a foodie, I tend to notice the ones that have to do with food. For example, for some reason I have not yet fully grasped Italians have a really hard time making […]

Fig Sangria

A few days ago I opened a new bottle of wine… and then I closed it. It really wasn’t very good. I mean at least not good enough to like drink by itself. So I stuck it in the fridge and thought to myself “I’ll deal with you tomorrow”. Tomorrow came, and I thought, “Why […]

paella_1

A few years ago I studied abroad in Spain. A ridiculously beautiful medieval town on the Northern coast, it’s city center made almost entirely of massive rocks stacked one on top of the other. The restaurants in the town specialized in seafood with large aquariums in almost all of the store fronts. One of the […]

white sangria 1

Sometimes you just want a glass of Sangria. I’ve been craving one for a bit of time now. And I decided that a Spanish themed dinner was the perfect occasion to enjoy that glass. Up until now I have always made the red version, but this time I strayed just a little from the usual. […]

It’s August in Milan and the city is empty. I think it’s fair to say about 70-80% of the stores are closed, especially over the central weeks of the month. The only people still around are a hand full of people in the essential services (like a few nurses) and tourists that didn’t know any […]
