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), […]

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 […]

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 […]

potato croquettes

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 […]

Many many moons ago I was walking down the streets of Pescara with one of my seemingly many Italian boyfriends, Alberto. We stopped to admire the store front of a gorgeous specialty food store. In the window stood a large marble container. Alberto looked over at me his eyes salivating. He stated “hmmmmm Lardo!” I […]
