Porcini risotto #2017

So here we are. Happy 2017! I feel so thrilled like never before for this new year beginning. I have a lot of new projects, a new collaboration starting soon in Milan in the food sector. I am fully committed in eating healthy and going to the gym regularly and most of all my motto…

Vasiliki Kouzina: Greek comfort food – in Milan

For years, not only working in the food sector but also blogging and talking to people, the general idea about Greek food is that is is too spicy, heavy, too much oil and garlic. Nothing can be so far from reality. Greek food is made of fresh ingredients, of course we use spices and garlic…

French cookies

Sunday. It’s been a while since I wrote on blog. I feel back on track these days as I am back in the streets of the city discovering new places, new bars and new restaurants. I felt dizzy in the last 2 months due to my new job in the restaurant. I am feeling sick…

The beauty of Falls

I have always been a happy person. Then when you grow up you are “forced” to become more serious, more focused on studies and work. I have always been so competitive that losing was not an option for me, as I started playing tennis when I was only 8 years old this tendency to get…

Working in a restaurant…the awful truth

Updating the blog in the last months has been almost impossible…I spent the whole day working, about 12hours per day in the evening. It has been crazy and I felt so bad…walking no stop for half a day, with no rest is so damn difficult and my body sent signals that “hey girl time to…

Sicily in Milan

I have always been in love with sicily even though I have never been there. Maybe it is because Sicily has so much in common with Greece, due to the history of the island. Food and wine are very similar as Greek cuisine and gastronomy is a combination of past dominations: Italian, Turkish and with…

Loren Sweets – a sweet corner in Ticinese

If you live in Milan you will notice how many new places open every month. I was living in Rome for the last four months and I have missed all the new places that opened here in Milan, which I must admit I now consider as my city. I am saying that because I have…

Felix – A tiny place in Navigli

It’s not a secret I am deeply in love with Milan and the Navigli area. It is like a micro cosmo where you can live your entire life without the need to go somewhere else in the city (ok for a short period perhaps, then you need to explore the city). Here you can find…

Noodles Milan – Fusion food

Yes, I must admit: I am a sushi lover. I don’t know why but in the last months I could eat sushi almost everyday. Perhaps this is due to the fact that if you live in Milan it is one of the easiest way to feel full with little money, the all you can eat…

La spesa divertente è Fanceat!

Prendi tre ragazzi, giovani anzi giovanissimi. Mettici l’entusiasmo di chi ha un sogno e un pizzico di incoscienza, aggiungi una solida base di conoscenze e mescola il tutto con la follia dei 30anni. La ricetta perfetta è FANCEAT. Nei giorni passati erano anche loro a Seeds&Chips di cui abbiamo scritto in precedenza. Quante volte abbiamo avuto voglia…

I messaggeri del gusto viaggiano in Italia

Durante la prima edizione di Seeds&Chips tenutasi a Milano nei giorni scorsi (26-29 marzo) abbiamo avuto occasione di incontrare una realtà particolare ed innovativa. Un gruppo che è nato da una solida esperienza nel settore food, fatto di persone che rispettano la materia prima e la trattano per offrire la miglior esperienza al consumatore finale….

Il seme dell’Italia che ci crede

L’Italia è un Paese ricco. Anzi mi correggo, l’Italia è un paese ricchissimo. Attento caro lettore, o lettrice che tu sia, non cadere in inganno! L’Italia è un Paese che deve rifiutare la parola crisi, è un Paese dove la gente si sveglia all’alba per andare nei campi, per scaricare le casse di frutta al…
