Across the length and breadth of the Mediterranean, I have experienced some of the most stunning scenery, gastronomy and wines on this planet. It all had begun on a sabbatical when I lost a Mediterranean husband … Since 1994, I have been living and working abroad. Hailing from Manhattan, a paternal Italian father and a Swiss mom, I have always been involved in one way or another with travelling, journalism and of course, kitchens. My paternal grandmom owning a trattoria in Manhattan´s Little Italy and many years studying at NY University for my Journalism License and working at the front of the house … and, currently interviewing well known chefs like Ferrán Adriá, Joan Roca, Carme Ruscadella, Alex Atala, Paco Roncero, Joaquin Felipe, Sergi Arola, Ángel León, Ric Sanz, Fernando del Cerro, Mario Sandoval and uncountable others and reviewing worldwide restaurants, editing the food and wine section of a major print media Expatriate English language magazine, the oldest English language magazine on the Iberian Peninsula, amongst freelancing for numerous print media English language magazines overseas and well, I too, enjoy the gastronomic side of things.
I am always adding something I delight in both in professional and personal sides of my life, so that my life is more fulfilled, hence, wine and the studies of Sommelier and Wine Tasting … Though I do not cook often at home, impossible with my career, when I do, it is quite unforgettable. Come join me in my epicurean escapes and do see my older daughter´s website: www.internationaltravel.ws in which I write about my Epicurean Escapes in and around the Iberian Peninsula.
I look forward to hearing from those who share my love of travel, wine and food … in English and Spanish.
If I do not have the time, I wish to take a moment to wish each and everyone, the very best of this season, and a wonderful 2012 … Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo 2012.
