Pisacco Milano - Dining Room

Pisacco could have possibly just become my favorite restaurant in Milan. The restaurant is the result of a collaboration between an eclectic group of people including an architect, an art collector, a lawyer and a Michelin-starred chef, and it shows. It’s understated, refined but not stuffy, and the food rocks. The dishes are generally quite […]

Zipo - Mucche pascolo

One of the great things about Milan is all the awesome things you can do around the city, case in point, Zipo. Zipo is a Slow Food endorsed farm just 30 minutes south of Milan. On the 90 hectares of farmland, Elisa raises free-range cows (that produce some of the best milk I’ve ever tried), […]

I already liked the restaurant: sleek, clean, modern lines, gray color palate, plus wooden tables and lots of cushions that brought warmth to the space. But, after one of the owners, Pier Giulio, came to our table and explained that he (Italian) opened the restaurant thanks to his wife, Lily, (foreigner) I was even more […]

I love the concept behind the sharing economy. So much so that I’ve been thinking about doing my own home restaurants for over a year now. But then life happens, which in my case meant I inexplicably couldn’t stand long enough to make myself a meal, much less make a meal for a group of […]

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 […]

al fresco - sign outside

It’s Fashion Week here in Milan, and I felt like I should write something about it. But I’m not a fashionista, after all this is a blog about food and travel and love. So in homage to this electrifying week so crucial to my adopted city,  I’ve decided to write about a restaurant where fashionistas […]

Via Brera sign

To say this past year was emotionally and physically trying would be kind of an understatement. Fortunately, in the process, I’ve learnt a tremendous amount of things, including how important it is to sit back, relax, and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Yes. I know we all know how great and important that […]

Terrace - Ostello Bello

Last Tuesday I did a mini staycation all about discovering or rediscovering beautiful locations here in Milan called the #3hMilan Tour. Created by Valentina from Via Col Viaggio in conjunction with Stamp Travel #3hMilan began at perhaps Milan’s most memorable landmark the ‘Duomo’ and ended at the Mercato Metropolitano.   It’s a great tour to […]

trattoria del nuovo macello - dessert

You know those moments when you are so hungry that you can’t think. Or even worse you’re so hungry you could chew someone’s head off. Not literally, because you don’t want to eat them, but you are in a mood where you can tell them where to shove it and then some. I was there. […]
