This October, I’m taking a road trip through southern Italy to plan unique culinary tours that showcase the tastes and flavors of Campania and Calabria. And you’re all invited!
I am very excited to announce that, this October, I will be giving five hands-on instructional classes at Aromi Magazine’s professional kitchen in Helsinki, Finland. These classes are for “foodies” of all levels who are looking to learn new recipes in a fun, yet educational way.
A visit to Tenuta Vannulo, an organic cheese-making water buffalo farm in Capaccio-Paestum, was one of the highlights of my road trip through Campania. It’s just as educational as it is delicious!
I highly suggest visiting the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Reggio Calabria to see the magnificent Riace Bronze Warriors.
Chef Franco returns to Kvarter5 on the Åland Islands to bring a delicious Italian-American dining experience and is looking forward to spoiling his guests.
As a blogger for the Helsinki Secret Residence, I was able to experience, as a local, the food, culture and beautiful nature of this city and its surrounding areas. Here in this post I share my Helsinki highlights with you all.
Jädelino is a quaint, friendly gelateria that serves top quality, homemade Italian ice cream in the the Teurastamo district of Helsinki. The flavors at Jädelino are very creative. I had a peanut butter-olive oil gelato that was extraordinary. The pistachio (made with an imported pistachio base from Sicily) and the tiramisu gelato are fantastic as well. I’ll be back! Once you’ve taste their delicious ice creams, you’ll be back too.
I had the distinct pleasure of working at the event with two very talented and highly accredited Tunisian chefs- Rafik Tlatli and Mounir Le Baroque. The best thing about working with chefs from other cultures beside your own, is the great enthusiasm that can be generated through a mutual admiration toward each other’s cuisine.
