The dishes that most impressed me!

When memories don’t come from your mind but from taste.

As usual, at the end of every December it’s report time! I think about all the lovely experiences I shared with you: lots of journeys, incredible trips, fun visits, tastings… And as I thought about my food and wine tours – where I discovered the best of the territory and new recipes to share with…

Winter in Carinthia: wooden houses, Christmas lights, sport and relax.

From Christmas market stalls to the sunny ski slopes in the Alps an then off to enjoy the tranquillity of thermal baths.

As you know I love the area I live in, I love to travel and discover new handmade art, architecture, nature and especially food, not just in places I haven’t been to yet, but also places I know very well but that never cease to amaze me. Among these many places one is Carinthia, the…

What to do on autumn weekends? Rogner Bad Blumau thermal baths.

A mix of architecture, nature and vulcanic water in Styria.

The days are getting shorter and summer is almost over and even if these past few days have been baking hot I’m already thinking about the foggy damp November days. I’m so fixed on the future months that I’m barely enjoying these last summer days, but I need to start planning what to do on…
