Sono Foodie, Flirty Foodie. Inviata speciale al evento “Pure tu vuoi fare lo Chef?”. Scherzi a parte sono andata ad un evento sulla ristorazione circa un mese fa. Devo dire che era veramente molto interessante. A meta’ giornata ero così contenta che stavo pensando… forse anch’io posso aprire un ristorante. Tenete conto che anche se […]

Taste and Travel - Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie

The date for the Cascine Orsine Harvest Party was scheduled for 27 november 2015. Considering the proximity to Thanksgiving, I decided to do a Thanksgiving themed harvest party. After all, Thanksgiving is the original American harvest party, started as a holiday to give thanks for the good harvest. Avendo fissato la data della festa il […]

Cascine Orsine - Grape Vines

Some months ago I got it in my head that I wanted to have/organize a harvest party. I’m not really sure what I decided why this idea came into my head. It was like the result of a variety of outside forces that led to this idea. But who, what, where, how was I going […]

This year’s Villa Arconati Music Festival ended with a bang! The dancing began with the incredibly talented African American artist Gregory Porter. Seeing him perform on stage makes it hard to imagine that this dream job as a child was an office job with the government. L’ultima serata di Villa Arconati ha regalato vere emozioni. […]

Welcome ARGENTINA! Two concerts with a Latin American flavor. First there was Richard Galliano with his new project the TANGARIA QUARTET. The Italian-French musician performed a tango-jazz mix along with his highly skilled band. Unfortunately the show was just way too short. Lasting only about 45 minutes, I wasn’t able to fully engross myself in […]

My expectations weren’t very high. Non avevo molte aspettative! Up until recently I had never heard of Yann Tiersen. Yann Tiersen era un personaggio a me sconosciuto. To make matters worse it had been raining all day in Milan, not the greatest for an open air concert. We took our seats and opened our umbrellas. […]

SMOOTH. That’s all I could think about while listening to the components of the Paolo Fresu Quintet play. E’ tutto quello che riuscivo a pensare mentre ascoltavo il quintetto di Paolo Fresu che suonava sul palco. But I guess I should backtrack. The fabulous Paolo Fresu Quintet concert was preceded by Davide Zilli. Davide is […]

For about an hour the previously unknown to me Arto Lindsay played an eclectic fusion style music with his very extravagant guitarist Marc Ribot, after which they made way for Raphael Gualazzi. Dopo circa un’ora di musica sperimentale di cui ignoravo l’esistenza il buon Arto Lindsay con la sua band originale e l’estroso chitarrista Marc […]

“Greatest thing you could ever learn  Is just to love and be loved in return To be loved in return” And so began the magical concert by George Benson for the Villa Arcontati Music Festival. A beautiful serenade of love songs and melodic jazz pieces that brought me back to my childhood, and especially Sunday […]

I found myself standing in front of this group of funny Icelandic hipsters called “Mum” a band consisting of 3 women and 4 men. Mi sono ritrovata davanti questo gruppo di buffi hipster Islandesi…..erano i Mùm: 3 ragazze e 4 ragazzi. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised to find their melodies original but also containing a […]
