At the beginning of June, thanks to the Sheraton Lake Como, I had the opportunity to visit the area nearby the Lake Como along with Manu from Milanosecrets, Aubrie Pick – with whom I had the pleasure of doing a photo-shoot at the Sheraton Malpensa the day before we left for Como – and the lovely Arax who put together this band.
It’s summer, it’s hot in Milan and I need something cold to eat.
Since I’m far from my Sicilian breakfast and lunch aka granita, these are some of my favorite summer recipes [they are all about berries and watermelon]
Tuscany, beautiful Tuscany! We’ll come back in September for a new food styling and photography workshop. Check MyPotluck out for further information.
A special thanks to MilanoSecrets and Agriturismo Cantagrillo for hosting us.
[And yes, in case you are wondering Vinci is the birthplace of Leonardo!]
Two weeks ago I took a train to Venice to reach my friend Erica during the opening days of the Biennale.
We had an aperitivo in the bar at The Gritti Palace, designed by Riva, we ran through the city to see as much as possible – including Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana – we had dinner at Osteria al Mascaron owned by the father of Alberta, one of my best friend.
The day after, Erica left for Rome in the morning and I had only few hours before coming back to Milan to enjoy exhibitions and pavilions in the Arsenale and the Giardini della Biennale.
If you follow me on instagram you probably already know I started a new collaboration with Lifegate, an online journal oriented to a sustainable living. They asked me to cook, shoot and photograph 2 recipes a week tailored for their readers.
My contributions are out on Mondays and Wednesdays in the food section.
