Le sanglier paresseux - chocolate dessert

This post has been such a long time coming, y’all don’t even know! (lol). Finally, I was almost there. I had written the post (most of it, at least), and then my mind became totally busy with a new project I’ve been working on. I’ve been staying up at nights thinking about it…planning it out. […]

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 […]

Reception - Boscolo Venezia

I don’t usually like classic historical hotels (side note I actually kind of hate new hotels that try and look old), but I feel in love with Boscolo Venezia. I think it’s because historic hotels can feel stiff and stuffy. They can have an unwelcoming aura that makes me feel incredibly conscious of my surrounds. […]

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), […]

Santo Domingo - Building

I’ve been feeling very nostalgic about the Caribbean these past few days, if not weeks. The warm weather, the blue skies, the music, the colors and the food. It made me look over an old post I did about Santo Domingo, which made me realize that I didn’t post half of the awesome pictures I (or “Juan”) […]

Speck

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 […]

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 […]

Sagra Polpo - Sign

This past weekend, August 7-9th was Tellaro’s Sagra del Polpo, Octopus Festival. Lo scorso fine settimana, dal 7 al 9 agosto, c’è stata la Sagra del Polpo di Tellaro.     As per my last post all about Tellaro, the festival commemorates the octopus that saved the village from pirates. Come ho spiegato nel mio […]

house with stairs on water - tellaro

  My husband is from a fabulously beautiful town on the Ligurian coast, also known as the Italian Riviera. Just in case you think that my love of this place is fuzzed by my affection for my husband, I’d like to note that Travel and Leisure listed Tellaro as one of Europe’s most beautiful villages. […]

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 […]
