about the Palermo issue

In this issue, we will explore a magical Sicilian city. A place where many of my friends (and myself as well) admit they would move to if they had the chance. 

Palermo is a charming, multicultural, elegant lady, with a lot of interesting things to say and so good at cooking!

We will explore the city as if we were there together, walking around the old markets, talking to locals, tasting their food and accessing their heritage. 

The churches are full of history and art; noble palaces are dreamy; restaurants and street food are delicious; cultural gems and artistic meccas are everywhere.

There are a lot of things to do in Palermo, so much that a month wouldn’t be enough to cover them all. But we will spend 48 hours hunting la creme de la creme. 


Back home, Easter is going to be our bridge towards Spring. We will celebrate with Italian recipes, traditions, and beautiful decor ideas.

I know roses are a Spring clichè, but what an astonishing, magical clichè. We will nourish our eyes and our most intimate soul with rosy pictures, by a visit to Rome’s Rose garden and a little rosy cooking.


After years of searching, you’ll find THE ONE, your future sweetheart: Mr. Tuna! Sicily will teach us how to cook it properly, how to exalt its flavor and texture, and how to enjoy a tuna meal. You’ll come back for seconds… and thirds :-).

There’s more, but let’s leave a little something to the imagination…

Enjoy Palermo and the surprises in the mag!
