Follow me around Soho – NYC

Soho is one of my obligatory pilgrimages when in New York. I usually get out of the subway at Spring street, and head to my very first fuel stop; Ansel Bakery, by French pastry chef and owner Dominique Ansel (ex pastry chef at Daniel by Daniel Bouloud). Now, I am…

What I miss (and I don’t) of my ‘past life’ in Milan

I moved to London 8 years ago, from Milan. When I introduce myself as an Italian, one of the first things I get asked is if I miss home, the weather and the food. And of course, I miss having four distinct seasons, a summer that is not a spring….


Friday drinks ideas

TGIF! Yes… finally the end of a long week. And what’s the best way to relax? A drink or two with friends. But today, instead of the  pub chain around the corner from the office, why not try something a little different? CANDLE LIGHT The Candlelight Club is a clandestine…


Ramen galore, late lunch at Tonkotsu (fab) and at Toku (bad)

A couple of weeks ago, on a miserable day exactly like today, I spent my morning trapped in back-to-back meetings in Fitzrovia. At midday I could already feel my stomach rumbling, but it wasn’t until nearly 1.30PM that, almost fainting – ok, it’s my dramatic Italianity kicking in, feeling slightly…

Ode to Bone Daddies

Last Thursday, after a morning of pretty useless meetings, I was feeling a little blue, and I needed  a good cheer up. When I am in a bad mood, my three antidotes are either a long chat with my best friend, a Bikram yoga class, or a little foodie adventure….


Indian street-food pit stop

Last week, after a pretty intense Bikram yoga class, I needed a quick late-lunch pit stop, and Mooli’s was just a stone’s throw away, in Frith street. This tiny shop sells tasty Indian street food, sort of burrito-wraps made with Roti, Indian flatbread, filled with very appetising and healthy ingredients….


Soho’s Secret Tea Room

Last saturday afternoon I planned to catch up with a friend in Soho.  This was the perfect opportunity to check out Soho’s Secret Tea Room, a place that has been on my ‘to go’ list for the last year! Tucked away in heart of vibrant and noisy Soho,  Soho’s Secret Tea Room…
