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…

Antonia Klugman: L’Argine a Vencò

When the poetry of flavours is spontaneous and tied to the territory!

I believe that Antonia Klugmann’s cuisine – she was nominated cook of the year by the guide Espresso of Italian Restaurants – is pure art. Antonia was born in Trieste, class of ’79, and grew up in a family of doctors; when she was 22, after 3 years of studying law, she decided to start…

Studiocinque e altro is moving and they’ll be waiting for you on the 15th of December!

Handmade design where the main character is always the fabric.

Almost two years ago I wrote about this wonderful workshop in Trieste and today I’m going back to it because they are moving to a new location, always in the same neighbourhood. From the industrial building in Viale D’Annunzio 4, Paola Fontana (sister of Alessio Fontana from Fontana Luce Light Lab, remember?) and Roberta Debernardi…

The largest vinegar producer in the world? In Manzano (Udine): it’s Midolini!

2.300 barrels store an incredible balsamic vinegar!

I’d visited the vinegar producer Midolini a few months ago, but I’ve already gone through my batch, so my son requested some more and, as the good mother I am, I went back to Midolini to buy some more. Surrounded by 35 hectares of vineyards of their property, among Refosco and Friulano I finally reach…

Moschioni’s red wines in Cividale del Friuli, surrounded by a land of white wine.

I pass the word to a wine expert that can tell us about them…

When we talk about wine, I leave the stage as a ballenina would with her “Fouettés en tournant”, so that more expert “dancers” have room to exhibit. I’m fascinated by this world, and I want to learn as much as possible, so today I’ll let Cosima take over with her description of Moschioni wine, in…

Blu di Prussia: handmade art in Trieste.

Wood, fiberglass, recovery, poetry and lots of passion!

In Via Cadorna 10, in the area that is developing in Trieste, one of those streets that I often confuse (Via Diaz or Via Cadorna? I always need to be careful not to mix them up), there’s a little shop with a handmade wooden wing at its entrance: here I discover Blu di Prussia (Prussia…

Italian Fable: From Italy to Trieste and then to the rest of the World

The start-up that offers a selection of delicacies in their Surprise Food Box

A few months ago, as I was taking a walk along Trieste’s Karst, I met an old friend, Paola Fonda, that told me that she spent the last two years traveling around Italy, looking for Italian food delicacies from companies that respect nature in their cultivation and farming techniques and that search for a balance…

Tavernetta al Castello at Capriva del Friuli (Go)

A “Renaissance” banquet among the hills of Gorizia

I’ve even heard that the great Maître Maurizio Dall’Osto works here at Tavernetta al Castello! In 2016 the “Club Magnar Ben” (which means “eat well club”) honoured him with the title of Best Maître in the surrounding region, and the guide “Magnar Ben” assigned him the title of Best Maître of the Alpe Adria area.…

A weekend of time traveling

The castle of Strassoldo (Udine) and the market stalls

It’s finally springtime and the first sunshine and the trees in bloom convince me to take a trip. I take advantage of the “Castelli Aperti” (Open Castles) event to go and visit the famous castles in Strassoldo. This small village in Friuli opens twice a year to the public: Palm Sunday weekend and the second-to-last…
