New European Michelin Guide Released With One Three-Star Addition in Paris

New European Michelin Guide Released With One Three-Star Addition in Paris

The 2015 Main Cities of Europe Michelin Guide has added 62 new starred restaurants to its annual guide

These are the best restaurants in Europe, supposedly.

The newest Michelin Guide, that all-encompassing book of top-notch cuisine around the world, explores the best restaurants in Europe. The 2015 Main Cities of Europe Michelin Guide has added 62 new restaurants to its guide this year, including one that garnered the coveted three starred rating: newbie Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris. The guide covers 46 cities in 20 countries, and adds two new cities this year: Aarhus in Denmark and Malmo in Sweden. For those who don’t quite have bottomless pockets to spend on European dining, the guide also includes 292 Bib Gourmands, which represent more affordable choices.

One of the highlights, Tanti in Budapest, was noted by editor Rebecca Burr for its “great cooking and simple artistry. This is a stylish modern restaurant and the kitchen delivers ‘clean,’ fresh flavors and shows a real understanding of ingredients.”

Many of this year’s star recipients were also included in The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Restaurants in Europe, like Noma in Copenhagen, Guy Savoy in Paris, and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London.


I8tonite with Scottsdale’s J&G Steakhouse Chef Jacques Qualin & Recipe for Roasted Whole Snapper with Yuzu Sauce

The world is full of great food and chefs – we only need to open our tastebuds to them. For instance, at Scottsdale’s J&G Steakhouse, at The Phoenician, a Starwood property, French-born Executive Chef Jacques Qualin may be the area’s only stove helmer to have worked at four Michelin restaurants – two in France and two in New York – a very rare distinction. If you are a sports fan, it’s like saying you played soccer with Manchester United and Real Madrid then moved to the United States, and played baseball with the Yankees and Mets.

Qualin, like many chefs, started cooking with his mother, tying his apron strings and sticking close to her, learning about food from the region of his birthplace, Franche-Comté, home to Comte and Emmenthaler cheeses. As a young cook, he traveled to Paris, where he studied under Michelin-rated chef Michel de Matteis, working at his three-star Restaurant Taillevent, defined by The New York Times as “the best in Paris, if not all of France.” Several other kitchens later, including working for Daniel Boulud in New York at the world famous Le Cirque, Qualin worked again in Paris as at the cosmopolitan Restaurant La Marée, before working with his friend Jean-Georges Vongerichten at Jojo’s on East 58th Street as the culinary great’s first sous chef.

After closing his seventy seat restaurant in upstate New York, The French Corner, The New York Times reviewer said, “(Qualin) created a unique and wonderful restaurant…delightfully rustic and complex all at once.” Vongerichten asked him about working together again, this time in Phoenix. He says, “I had been in France and New York City for fourteen years and I was looking for opportunities to come to the West Coast.”

Working in the Valley of the Sun, Qualin now defines himself as a “Frenchman who cooks with an Asian flair,” speaking to Vongerichten’s penchant for European and Asian cuisine. He says about working at J& G Steakhouse, a long distance from European Michelin restaurants, “I like good food and I like the brasserie-style we have at J&G. It’s a different restaurant than before, but it’s a steakhouse. I like that.”


Food People Questionnaire (with a nod to Proust):

What is your favorite food to cook at home?
Cake! Always cake! There have even been times when my family has arrived home after a long day of work and school and my answer to their “What did you make for dinner?” is “Cake!”

What do you always have in your fridge at home?
Yogurt, milk, mustard and salad dressing, butter, olives and pickles, a jar of cherry jam. Packets of butter and a few out of date packets of phyllo.

What marked characteristic do you love in a person with whom you are sharing a meal?
There are 2 necessary characteristics I love in a person with whom I share a meal: real interest in and knowledge about food and a great sense of humor!

What marked characteristic do you find unappealing in a person with whom you are sharing a meal?
I get little pleasure out of dining with a glutton, someone who swallows down food without savoring or appreciating it.

Beer, wine, or cocktail?
Wine, of course! I have never liked beer and rarely think of a cocktail, maybe because I have lived the last 30 years in France and Italy, both wine countries!

Your favorite cookbook author?
Anna Thomas and Françoise Bernard

Your favorite kitchen tool?
A great knife and my Better Zester zester! I love a good whisk, too!

Favorite types of cuisine to cook?
French and Moroccan – and I have several recipes from these cuisines in my cookbook!

Beef, chicken, pork, or tofu?
Lamb! Always lamb!

Favorite vegetable?
Oh, hard question! Garden-fresh tomatoes in summer and zucchini all year round! Although I love Belgian endives and cauliflower, too. And eggplants. Is that too much to love?

Chef you most admire?
Antonin Carême

Food you like the most to eat?
Trick question?

Food you dislike the most?
Liver and offal. Ugh. I’m not particularly crazy about sorrel, either, much to my husband’s chagrin. And don’t ask me to eat overripe bananas or mealy apples.

What is your favorite non-food thing to do?
Read. And write.

Hôtel Diderot in Chinon, France

Who do you most admire in food?
I admire people who break barriers. There are several men on my list, from Antonin Carême, to Graham Kerr to Paul Prudhomme, but let’s concentrate (mostly) on the women. I admire the first women chefs who, against norms and misogyny, worked their way to head great kitchens in France, from women such as La Mère Brazier to Rougui Dia, Anne-Sophie Pic, and Hélène Darroze. I admire women like Anna Thomas, Rose Levy Beranbaum, Mollie Katzen, Madhur Jaffrey, Françoise Bernard, the intrepid and groundbreaking cookbook authors who inspired me, just out of college and just married, to cook and bake fearlessly and adventurously and, in extension, to begin to eat better, too.

I’ve always admired TV chefs like Graham Kerr and Julia Child, Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver who brought the raw passion and casual simplicity to millions and inspired us to cook and to love cooking (even if and especially when we messed up) and sharing food with others.

I admire chefs like Virginia Willis, Kathleen Flinn, Zoë François, Sandra Gutierrez, Nancie McDermott who reach out and teach others to live better and eat better by cooking real food, local food, ethnic or regional food, those loud voices who, with grace, passion, generosity, and humor, continue to instruct and share and inspire and push forward to carry on their mission.

Where is your favorite place to eat?
Living in Europe for more than 30 years, I head straight to the nearest – and best – diner whenever I visit the States. I love a great American diner! I’ve eaten in many Michelin-starred restaurants and bouchons in Lyon and have had such sublime and truly memorable meals, but my favorite place to eat is at home when my husband (or now my son) cooks.

What is your favorite restaurant?
I’ve had some amazing and incredible meals in France, Italy, and the States. It’s hard to commit to a favorite, although I could draw up a list.

Do you have any tattoos? And if so, how many are of food?
Tattoos? No, none. They are against my religion. But I’d gladly wear food-inspired jewelry!


A new 3 week festival is coming to East Gippsland this winter

One takeaway from 2020 we’re glad to embrace is the backyard getaway. Amidst the uncertainty of international (and at times interstate) travel, there’s never been a better time to explore your own state. From charming small towns, a vibrant arts scene, local produce the envy of many, spectacular coastlines, excellent eateries and much more, there’s one place that has this all wrapped up – East Gippsland.

East Gippsland Winter Festival (June 18 to July 11) is a celebration of all things art, music, wine, craft beer and local produce. Spread over three weeks there will be a raft of activities including interactive art installations, pop-up events, live music, workshops, exclusive dinners and lavish feasts showcasing the best the region has to offer.

With bushfires, drought and Covid challenging many a local business, festival founder Adam Bloem was looking for a way to attract more people to the region. ’I wanted something that encouraged people to stay a bit longer and travel around and explore all of the little towns and villages.’

We now have over 70 events on our festival program and the majority of these have been devised and organised by local businesses, community groups and passionate locals. The response has been overwhelming and we can’t wait to welcome thousands of visitors to East Gippsland over winter where there will be lots of things to see, do, eat and drink right across the region.

From Mallacoota to Paynesville, north to Omeo and everywhere in between, friendly locals can’t wait to share their special corner of the world with you. Kick it off on Friday, June 18 with the official festival opening in Bairnsdale with live music and roving performers, as well as a bevy of food/wine options and art projections throughout the town.

Pencil in the Pinot Picnic and Masterclass on Sunday, June 20 thanks to the acclaimed Sardine Eatery + Bar and Lightfoot & Sons Winery. This not-to-be-missed event salutes Gippsland Lakes District’s exceptional pinot noir at Lightfoot and Son’s cellar door. The winemaker-guided Masterclass will take place in their barrel room with guests enjoying a Sardine Eatery picnic box filled with cheese, charcuterie and conserves.

This year’s winter solstice on Monday, June 21 just happens to coincide with World Bathing Day. Join bathers from across the globe at sunrise for a live-streamed Global Sound Bath. From the new pop-up bathing area on the future Metung Hot Springs site, drink in the beauty of the natural surrounds for a calm and balanced start to your day.

The Lakes Light Festival on Saturday, June 26 promises to be a festival highlight. Watch a mural painting as it unfolds in both a virtual sense and in reality at the former iceworks factory, and now arts hub, in Lakes Entrance.

Is it time to unleash your inner artist? Then don’t miss the lantern making workshop on Tuesday, June 29 in Swifts Creek. This idyllic town in the Tambo Valley is quickly developing a strong reputation for its arts scene and part in the Great Alpine Arts Trail. Experienced local artists will guide you through the process and shine a light on your creative side. Great fun for all ages!

One of the festival standouts has to be the Sailors Grave Deep Winter Festival on Saturday, July 3. Sailors Grave is a darling of the craft beer scene for good reason. Their complex beers (and idiosyncratic branding) tell the story of their unique region, their terroir. None more so than their recent release Dark Emu Dark Lager, a collaboration with Uncle Bruce Pascoe honouring indigenous culture and knowledge.

The Deep Winter event kicks off at 6 pm at the home of Sailors Grave brewery, a 100-year-old butter factory on the banks of the Snowy River. Music will be provided by post-punk Oz rock band Shepparton Airplane and other special guests, with food by Melbourne butchers Meatsmith. Co-founders Gab and Chris Moore can’t wait to welcome you.

By now you’re thinking it might be a great idea to plan a little exercise and thankfully the area has some of the most scenic trails in the state. Little River Gorge Walk will certainly get the blood pumping but also rewards that effort with a stunning view over one of Victoria’s deepest gorges and the mis-named Little River. Of course, a leisurely stroll around one of the area’s many lakes might be more your pace. Check out some of the options here.

So many activities – both day and night – means you’re going to need somewhere to stay. With accommodation options from traditional B&Bs, luxe glamping or maybe a waterside retreat complete with mooring for your boat, there’s no excuse not to head east this winter.

I venture off the tube map

Coworth Park (pictured) is a very smart country house hotel near Ascot, re-opened in late 2010 after a lengthy and expensive refurbishment. The initial chef was John Campbell, formerly of The Vineyard, and the flagship restaurant features his name heavily, even down to the initials JC in the foam on the cappuccino. Such things make it tricky when, as happened, here, the chef leaves: expect a major rebranding at the end of November. Previous sous chef Olly Pierrepont is now running the kitchen, and his team produced a good meal for us this week, with quite technical cooking but using good ingredients and capably executed. The grasping wine prices are at odds with the relatively reasonable food prices here.

Roussillon has served Pimlico well over the years, but lost its Michelin star when Alexis Gauthier went solo in Soho. The kitchen now has a new chef in the form of Shane Hughes, whose cooking I ate this summer at Ynyshir Hall. The best dish was a foie gras terrine with beetroot, and overall it was a very enjoyable and acceptably priced meal, though I have the impression that the cooking has not quite settled down yet. At present the menu is still very classical (and indeed Shane has plenty of classical training) but I wonder if he will be tempted to modernise things now that he is behind the stoves a press release hinted at this, and if this indeed transpires I wonder how this will play to the Roussillon regulars. For now I have left the score at 5/10.

The Duke of Sussex is a pub local to me whose food always manages to exceed my expectations. The standard pub dishes like fish and chips are well made, but the main theme of the kitchen is Spanish cooking, and paella served in a cast iron skillet was one good example of the food this week. It is not a destination restaurant by any means, but it produces consistent, good value food.

The Swiss Michelin 2012 Guide came out this week, with no change at the top. There were two new two star restaurants: Mesa in Zurich and Les Floris in Anieres. The list of 3 star places is here and a location map of all of them here.

The Italy Michelin 2012 Guide emerged, with a promotion to modernist Osteria Francescana in Modena to three stars, and promotions to two stars for Principe Cerami in Taormina, L&rsquoOlivo on Capri, Quattro Passi in Massalubrense (baffling based on my recent visit) and Oliver Glowig in Rome. There were also no less than 33 new one star places.

The Chicago 2012 Michelin Guide also came out, and a slightly controversial edition it was at that. Until now the non-European Michelin guides have shown a steady increase of stars year on year, but not this one. L20, who had a chef change, was not just demoted by a star but reduced to just one star status, an unusual but not unknown ignominy (it happened in 2007 to Park Heuvel in The Netherlands, for example), while Chicago also lost one of its two star places, Avenues, which closed. Grant Achatz&rsquos wildly successful restaurant Next was not awarded any stars, at least this year &ndash perhaps the inspectors couldn&rsquot get a reservation. Overall Chicago now has 25 Michelin stars compared to 30 last year.

As in previous series of BBC2&rsquos &ldquoMasterchef: The Professionals&rdquo I popped up this week as a guest critic. As always, it was a lot of fun to film, if not in all cases to eat the food. If you missed this then you can, if you live in the UK, catch up on the BBC iPlayere here.

Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, is high on the list as the best city to eat on earth. The birthplace of New Nordic cuisine, and home to numerous world celebrated restaurants, also has the highest concentration of Michelin starred places in the region. The city was hailed as the gastronomic capital of Scandinavia. In 2016 when the Michelin guide promoted the restaurant Geranium to three stars, it further solidified the city’s status.

Geranium is the first and only three Michelin-starred restaurant in Denmark. It also claimed the top spot in the Nordic White Guide 2017/18, and currently ranked number 19 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list. With all the awards, the path to greatness was challenging for co-owners head chef Rasmus Kofoed, and Soren Ledet, the wine/restaurant director. They opened the restaurant in 2007 and was awarded a Michelin star a year later, but bankruptcy of an investor led to its closure. In 2010, the duo re-opened Geranium at its current location and regained the Michelin star in 2012. The second star came the following year and finally the third star in 2016.

Aside from the Michelin accolades, Chef Kofoed was the only person to win bronze, silver and gold at the prestigious Bocuse d’Or competition (the trophies are proudly displayed in the restaurants lounge area), and was voted Danish Chef of the year in 2003. He is arguably the most decorated chef in Denmark. His culinary career started at Copenhagen’s Hotel D’Angleterre before embarking to Belgium’s two-Michelin starred Scholeshof. After coming back to Denmark Chef Koefed took the reigns at the now closed two Michelin-starred Kommandanten (the first restaurant in Denmark to hold multiple stars), and held various head chef position in the city. His final stop before Geranium was the head chef position of Hotel D’Angleterre. Mr. Ledet on the other hand, was a former chef at noma turned sommelier. He curated Geraniums award-winning wine list that was recognized by Wine Spectator.

The restaurant is housed on the 8th floor of the Tiel Parken stadium, which is also home to FC Copenhagen, the most successful football club in the nation. Geraniums floor to ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of the surrounding area. The interior is stylish and strictly Scandinavian with white and gray color scheme. The open concept dining room is slated with natural wood floorings, neatly dressed oversize round tables, and custom made Danish-designed chairs and benches. There is an open kitchen in the front of the dining room giving diners a theatric aspect and direct view of Chef Koefed and his chefs in action.

A seasonal “Geranium Universe” tasting menu cost 2000 DKK (750 DKK deposit to confirm the reservation) is offered both lunch and dinner, which consist of fifteen plus courses.

To start, I was served a decadent custard of Lobster Milk, Juice from Fermented Carrots & Sea Buckthorn.The custard has layers of sweet, savory, and vinegary essence that comes together in harmony. At the bottom, are delicious pieces of lobster meat. Next, was the Jerusalem Artichoke Leaves, Hazel Nut Oil & Rye Vinegar. A pair of crispy chips shaped like a leaf from Jerusalem artichoke, and served with a tasty mayonnaise dip from hazel nut and rye vinegar. That was followed by the “Razor Clams” with Mineral & Sour Cream. This ingeniously constructed edible razor clam made from wheat and squid ink, was delightfully filled with chopped raw razor clams, sour cream, tarragon and parsley.

Then came the, Tomato Water, Ham Fat and Aromatic Herbs. This was a small cup of tomato water served with a spoon filled with herbs and petals. The tomato water has incredible robust flavors. Mixing the herbs with the tomato water, as instructed by my server, releases the elegant aromatics of the dish. The “Dillstone” Trout, Horse Radish & Frozen Juice from Pickle Dill was a brilliantly conceived dish. Coated in dill and shaped to replicate a stone, the humble trout was elevated, and given a certain refinement. The chilled bitterness of the horse radish with pickle dill was the rightful cohort to the dill stone. The Nettles, Smoked Cheese & Dried Oyster had rich smoky features, as well as having a clear oyster presence.

After six terrific appetizers, it was time to move on to the main dishes. The first course was a seasonal Danish delicacy Smoked Lumpfish Roe & Fermented Creamy Cauliflower. The subtle lumpfish roe was given a touch of smokiness that went very well with the sharpness of the fermented cauliflower cream. Salted Hake, Parsley Stems & Finnish Caviar in Buttermilkwas the second course, and also Geranium’s signature dish. This had delicate flavors that were heightened with the saltiness of the caviar. The buttermilk gave it the perfect hint of creaminess, while the fried fish scales provided the crunchy textures. Next was an enjoyable bread course of Crispy Grains, Bread with Old Grains & Gluten Free Bread with Seeds.Two types of bread and cheese sticks served with homemade butter.

The meal continued with the Scallop in Juniper Aroma, Flippa Reduction & Browned Butter. Prepared table side by Chef Koefed himself, the scrumptious scallop marine’s sweetness was magnificently lifted by the broth’s nuttiness. Lightly Salted Turbot, Green Herbs, Celeriac & Pickel Pinewas a tender piece of mildly seasoned fish with a nicely seared outer layer. In harmony with the turbot was the pleasant tartness of the celeriac sauce. The vibrant herbs and its vegetal essence balanced all the component on the plate. The following course was Tartlet with Fjord Shrimp, Sol & Pickled Elder Flowers,a tart filled with crispy shrimps, herbs and flowers comes with very good flavors. The final main course was the Stuffed Morels, Wild Mushrooms, Smoked Chicken Fat & Hops.The profound earthiness of the mushrooms and morels were combined exquisitely with savory lushness from the consommé of smoke chicken fat.

Prior to dessert I was given a tour of the restaurant. We started in the lounge area, which was separated by a marble center island table with an enclosed fire place, before proceeding to their wine storage. We continued to their private dining area, where we sampled in-house cured meats. I made my way to the back kitchen that looks down on the football pitch, before exiting to the dining room.

Back to my table, dessert began with A Bite of Beetroot, Blackcurrant, Yoghurt & Tagetes a tiny ball caramelized in beets had a soothing sweetness while also having a lingering liquorish sourness. Served in pair, were the Ice Cream from Beeswax & Pollen, Dried Apples and Elderberries.The ice cream had a beautiful refreshing natural sweetness, while the bowl with dried apples and elderberries had a pleasing fruity dulcet. For the final dessert, I was served the Caramel With Roasted Grains, Chamomile & Pear. On the plate was a rich puffy mousse sweetened by caramel syrup, which was fittingly accompanied by grainy sweetness of the pear.

I opted to have the mignardises at the lounge where I was served Pumpkin Tree & Cake With Pumpkin Seed Oil, Caramel, Dried Plum Juice & Aromatic Seeds, Chocolate with Oats & Sea Buckthorn, Marshmallow with Rose Hip and Green Egg with Pine. I had these confectionary delights with a cup of fresh Danish latte, carefully brewed in-front of me.

After fifteen or so courses and four hours later, the culinary marathon was sadly came to an end. This was an amazing meal that had plenty of unique and intricate flavor combinations, with different textures. One course after another continued to excite the palate while also appealing visually. The cooking focused and precise down to the very smallest details, and the use of local seasonal ingredients was remarkable. Chef Kofoed’s repertoire that won him numerous culinary accolades, and made him one of the top toques in the world was on display on my visit.

As with any place in Copenhagen wine marked up is ridiculously out of this world. It was no different at Geranium where the wine pairing cost 1500 DKK ($210). While there was a cheaper juice pairing, the restaurant was happy to accommodate my request of a mixture of wines and juice pairing for a lesser value at 1000 DKK. Having the best of both options, the juice pairing of Green Apples &Elderflower, Gooseberries, Sunflower Seeds & Tarragonand Cloudberry were creative and fascinating, especially with how their sweetness complemented the food properly. The same can be said with the four glasses of European wines as it adds an extra after taste.

The service was sincerely friendly and particularly attentive. Though the manner of professionalism were still on display they were still able to make it fun. I was thoroughly impressed with the young and diverse staff on how well trained they were. Everyone that brought the food to my table, from the hostess to the chefs, and wait staff were equally knowledgeable, and very much involved in providing a dining experience. As with Chef Koefed, his presence in the dining room was very much noticeable. He served, performed table side preparation, and interacted with his guests, stopping by every table every so often.

Wine Pairing:

A meal at Geranium is costly but well worth the price of admission. There is no better restaurant in Copenhagen. For years it has lived in the shadow of noma but since its closure and the arrival of the third Michelin star, Geranium has undisputedly become the top dining venue in Copenhagen.

While three Michelin stars are the highest accolades that a restaurant can achieve, not all with this honor is equally in the same caliber. Geranium, on the other hand is the Creme de la Creme of these select group and rightfully one of the very best in the world. Dining at this restaurant was epic and unforgettable and will forever be etched in memory. This was New Nordic cuisine at its finest.

Geranium, on the other hand is the Creme de la Creme of these select group and rightfully one of the very best in the world. Dining at this restaurant was epic and unforgettable and will forever be etched in memory. This was New Nordic cuisine at its finest.

While at university the love for her locality blossomed and she decided to focus her career where she lives: in Borgomasino, in the Canavese wine district.

After 25 years as a nurse in Ivrea and then Britain since 2003, Antonio de Vecchi decided to follow his true passion: making gelato. He enrolled in the Carpigiani courses at the end of May 2013 to bring real gelato to Leicester, along with Daniele Taverna. Their Piedmontese heritage gives a unique twist to their creations. Crafted in the artisanal style, they use only the best ingredients. This starts with the fresh milk from Alan Hewson’s cows at the Belvoir Ridge Creamery and the honey, created by the Slow Food UK Supporter “The Bee Farmer”, David McDowell. With the support of Renato “Jo Pistacchio” Romano, they have also recently cemented their place in the local food community by being the first to bring PGI certified Sfusato lemons to their region of the UK. Organising a co-operative with other local restaurants and delis, they are now bringing this world-leading fruit regularly to the area, and using it to create delicious sorbetti.

As well as creating gelato inspired by Italian and Piedmontese tradition, Antonio and Daniele also tirelessly develop new and exciting recipes which represent the flavours of their new home and the rich diversity of fresh ingredients in the area. if you are in the UK, you must go to Gelato Village in Leicester.

/>Alberto & Kelly are a cross-cultural couple (he’s Italian, she’s American) who share a passion for cooking (especially traditional homemade Italian recipes) & good conversation around the dinner table. By day Alberto (Semenzato) works in IT and Kelly (Strobel) is an English teacher, but they created italianatheart.com initially as a language exchange through recipes. The blog has evolved into a mutual passion with a deeper mission: make authentic Italian cuisine seen & heard in the English-speaking world. After studying abroad in California, Alberto met his nemesis: chicken Alfredo fettuccine. And after studying abroad in Torino, Kelly fell in love with the city and the cuisine, and especially the idea that language learning thrives best over a scrumptious meal around the table. For us there is no greater expression of love & connection than through the breaking of bread together. After an international corporate life during which I was well paid, well travelled and well fed, I now have the luxury of combining my twin passions of Italy and food. Keen supporter of Slow Food and love to source and cook with authentic ingredients in our kitchens in London and Milan. Fell in love with Turin about four years ago and now try to be here as often as I can. Can’t be doing with fake or speedy anything and likely to rant about the industrialisation of food at the drop of hat. When not in the kitchen, likely to be found with my nose in a book, wandering around looking at art and architecture or listening to opera (the earlier the better). Blessed with a wonderful Italian partner, Edoardo, whose role in the kitchen is to keep my glass filled.

As well as creating gelato inspired by Italian and Piedmontese tradition, Antonio and Daniele also tirelessly develop new and exciting recipes which represent the flavours of their new home and the rich diversity of fresh ingredients in the area. if you are in the UK, you must go to Gelato Village in Leicester.

Andrew Dunne is originally from Dublin, Ireland and moved to the Langhe region of Piemonte in 2016. With a love of “tutto Italiano” Andrew has been a regular visitor to Italy since he first visited on holidays in 1988. Self-employed, Andrew’s real passion is food and wine, particularly Italian but now with an emphasis on Piemontese food and wine. In early 2017, Andrew set up Piemonte Deli, a food & wine gift box business presenting local, artisanal, award-winning producers and delivering throughout Europe direct from Italy. The company’s value is “provenance”, only sourcing gourmet food products directly from some of the most amazing family businesses and wines directly from award-winning, family run boutique vineyards. Many of the products are award-winning and some of the products have been awarded the prestigious "Piemonte Eccellenza Artigiana" in recognition of Italian producers using traditional artisan methods and an important symbol of excellence and some of our wine suppliers being awarded the 'Slow Food' 'Presidio' award in August 2017, for their Dolcetto. Since then Piemonte Deli is starting to bring these “hidden gems” to Ireland/UK & Europe by distributing these wonderful products to independent retailers. 2018 will also see the introduction of the Piemonte Wine Club, a subscription service showcasing the wonderful wines of Piemonte.

Georgie Knaggs I grew up on a farm in Africa – Zimbabwe. Since then my life has been a mixture of family, travel, and writing. I’ve lived in many countries, most recently in Italy where we spent two years (2014-2016) on the outskirts of Naples. The city and its beautiful location fascinated me from the start, and thanks to excellent, occasional language classes in the old centre I learned enough Italian to find my way around the city, and to explore its history, its treasures, its culture, and the importance it places on family and food. I’m now back in London, where my mind still travels, and I continue to write and to work on my blog The Phraser – “a broad little blog on culture, travel, elephants and people”. Clare Reed is Irish, 42, and living the dream in Alta Langhe, Piemonte. Brought up in England she has travelled the world and lived in 5 countries as an adult, settling in Langhe in 2016. She has thrown herself into the community in her village and entertaining 'Langhe style' has taken over her life. She loves hosting and visiting her Italian neighbours for lunches and dinners soaking up all the local customs, Piemontese foods and wines, as well as the great entertainment her new neighbours offer. She writes about her new adventures and living in the Piemontese way in her blog www.piemontedreams.com, she contributes to international ex-pat blogs and is in the midst of writing her first novel set in Italy – where else! When she puts her laptop away she is most often found in the kitchen making up a batch of preserves from her garden’s fruit trees and vegetable plot. Francine Segan, one of America’s foremost authorities on Italian cuisine, is a food historian and engaging public speaker and TV personality. A noted James Beard-nominated author of six books including her most recent two on Italy are Dolci: Italy’s Sweets and Pasta Modern: New & Inspired Recipes from Italy. She is the host on NYC’s popular i-italy TV series “Americans who Love Italy,” which airs Saturdays and Sundays on channel 25 and 22. She also appears on many other programs, including Today Show and Early Show and has been featured on numerous specials for PBS, the Food Network and the History, Sundance and Discovery channels. She lectures across the USA for the prestigious speaker’s bureau Cassidy & Fishman and is a frequent guest speaker at NYC’s premiere cultural center the 92Y, Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University, Smithsonian Museum in DC, Virginia Fine Arts Museum, Museum of Natural History in NYC among others. She recently moderated a panel for the Tribecca Film Festival on food in film with Isabella Rosellini and Stanley Tucci. Ms. Segan writes for several magazines including Epicurious, Food Arts, and Gastronomica. She writes extensively about chocolate and authored several chapters of Rutgers University’s catalogue Bitter Sweet: The Chocolate Show and contributed the chapter “Italian Chocolate” for the upcoming Oxford Encyclopedia of Sweets. She also recently wrote a twelve-page cover feature on Italian chocolate desserts for La Cucina Italiana magazine. Francine Segan is a frequently quoted expert in many newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Scientific American, USA Today, L.A. Times, and Chicago Tribune. Diana Skok Corridori is an Italian-American living in northern Italy. Her father is from Trieste and she was born in Texas. Growing up, meals included dishes such as bbq ribs, jota and gnocchi. Food always reflected the multicultural home she was raised in and contributed to her curiosity of the the cultural differences between America and Italy. Living in Italy has given her the opportunity to compare the realities of "La Dolce Vita" and "The American Dream." She writes about food, travel and life in the old country at: www.italytranslated.com and contributes to the publications: The Telegraph, CNN and National Geographic. When she is not writing, she is planning trips for independent travelers to Italy. Elfin Waters I was born in the US but grew up in Italy in an English speaking family. I have a background as a translator and originally, I'm a certified English teacher. I worked in offline schools until 2013 when I had an accident that forced me to reconsider every aspect of my life and start teaching online over at Italki. When I first posted my profile, I offered lessons in every language I knew and to my complete surprise, the first requests I received were for Italian. That's when I discovered that many people wanted to learn Italian and live in the very country I was at odds with and that I wanted to leave. Thanks to my students, I started seeing Italy through new and different eyes. Now, I'm on a mission to get more English speakers to overcome their fears and learn Italian so they can get to out of their tourist bubble and connect with Italy in a more meaningful way. I specialize in using social media to squeeze language learning into a busy life and I feel that process of learning a language should be just as enjoyable and remarkable as the final goal, that of becoming fluent.

Christina Conte
Christina was born in Scotland to Italian parents, just like St Patrick but unlike the saintly figure, she now lives in sunny Los Angeles. She is usually cooking, baking or (cr)eating something scrumptious to share with her readers on Christina's Cucina. When Christina isn't in the kitchen, she loves to travel near and far, as long as there's good food involved.
She's on a mission to save authentic Italian dishes from a horrible death, and constantly promoting her native Scottish (and British) cuisine in order to dispel the myth of "bad British food".
Christina has two degrees in psychology (one for each child) and used to be a social worker who taught parenting skills. She could easily be vegetarian if it wasn't for bacon, black pudding, cured Italian sausages, pancetta and salami. Basically, it’s a pig problem she has.
Just don't get her started by asking her thoughts on using trendy short cuts, one-pot pasta dishes, faux and processed food, preservatives, and dump dinners. You've been duly warned.

Amanda Courtney I was born outside of the Boston area, after high school I went to study metal-smithing and jewelry design at the Maine College of Art in Portland ME. Which then brought me to Los Angeles and from there I was tantalized by the super passionate and exciting food and wine scene that LA had to offer. It was then that I found my passion and where I got my wine degree at the Wine and Spirit Educational Trust. Working with wine, talking and educating people about the different regions, varieties, and philosophies of the winemakers, I had found my true talent. I now live and work in one of the most important wine areas in Italy, Piemonte. Having recently started up my own Wine Adventures company I am now able to show people around this area to educate them about the food, wine, and culture of this wonderful place.

Bill Goldstein
Bill Goldstein is a professor of psychology, a background that has been very useful for his other passion – understanding, choosing, evaluating, and, - naturally! – drinking the wines of the world. He realized very early that Italian wines are unique for their variety, history, and compatibility with food. For that reason he started buying and collecting Italian wines more than thirty years ago, just as interest in wine in the USA began to grow rapidly. Bill and his wife Margaret also were investors in a wine store, for which Bill had major responsibility for choosing the wines – especially those from Italy. In sum, the thousands of Italian grape varieties provide him with continued delight in his never-ending quest to taste them all.

Margaret Goldstein
Margaret Goldstein has been drinking and appreciating (mostly!) Italian wines for the last 30+ years. While her professional life has centered around information technology (she has a Master's Degree in Computer Science, worked for IBM for over 10 years, and has had her own IT consulting company since 1994), her "down time" is often focused on cooking (frequently Italian food) and wine. In fact, making pizza from scratch has been a Saturday night ritual for the past several years. Margaret has volunteered as a teacher of English as a Second Language for the past seven years, and she has studied Spanish, Danish, Japanese, and, most recently, Italian, her favorite foreign language, of course!

Carolina Stupino
Born in Turin to a wine producing father and a food loving mother, I always enjoyed good food and treasure my early memories of sampling traditional Piedmontese dishes in the region’s many restaurants.
I moved to the UK over a decade ago to study and work as a journalist. Since then my goal has been to bring the flavours of Northern Italian cuisine to London, to recreate the dishes of my childhood with the ingredients I could find over here. This has been the starting point of a gastronomic journey which brought me to explore different cooking traditions from around the globe. But without ever losing sight of my origins.
In my work as cookery teacher, I try to transmit this passion for food and traditions to both adults and children. Seeing people discover the beauty of a homecooked meal and how it brings people together around a table is a joy for me. Helping people understand the value of fresh seasonal ingredients and the importance of a good diet to our health is another great motivation behind my efforts.
While my blog Tastes of Carolina is not centred around nutrition, it emphasises how traditional diets often lead to the longest and healthiest lives and on the value of eating wholesome foods.

Sonia Castañeda is a native of Dallas, Texas. Growing up in a Hispanic household, it was almost customary to be involved in the kitchen. Whether it was working the assembly line making Tamales with her Abuela or cookies with her Mom, it was always fun and never really felt like work. That love and passion for cooking and baking would eventually seal the deal with her future husband. In 2006 she met an Italian and 8 months later they married. Knowing she would have to leave everything behind and move to Italy, she began to document her move by starting a blog. Living in Turin since 2008, Sonia has transitioned from a foreigner with no previous knowledge of the Italian language, to a mom of 3 girls and a pretty good vocabulary. Sonia has used her past work experience in the field of Hospitality to help other expats become acquainted to life in Turin as well as offer sightseeing itineraries for visitors. She also uses her medical experience to occasionally help her neighborhood pharmacy with translation. A Texas Mom in Torino, is where she writes about the balance of being a wife, mom, shares recipes, craft, and trying to rediscover who she is again. Of course there's also the search for the perfect gelato too!

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Rosemarie had always dreamed of making her way to Europe after completing a degree in languages and linguistics. Her first stop was France, then the UK and finally, the land of her ancestry, Italy.

Freelance Writer, Travel Essayist, Gardener and Piemonte Enthusiast. Prior life was spent directing corporate fashion shows and professional drag extravaganzas, then building a large IT consulting firm in Seattle before making the dramatic decision to move our entire life across the pond. We packed our home, sent 200 boxes on a container and I, along with my husband and 2 small dogs set sail aboard our sailboat in 2002. We proceeded to spend a nomadic decade in Rome, Paris, Malta, Amsterdam, Prague, Bucharest, along with 6 months spent living aboard our boat in Lignano Sabbiadoro, near Venice. Our finest decision was settling down and buying a home in Piemonte. I’ve written profile pieces in slick, glossy magazines, my travel essays are available on Amazon and my first novel will be published in 2015. Having lived in so many countries has altered my mind, living in Piemonte has altered my heart.

Lisa Watson’s real passion for Italian food began nearly twenty years ago in a small restaurant in Tavernelle di Pisa, near Firenze, with a plate of fresh tagliatelle smothered in truffles. Lisa grew up on a sheep farm in New Zealand, where meat, fruit, vegetables and milk were always used fresh off the farm, which kindled her interest in growing and cooking her meals from scratch. She has an unbridled enthusiasm for experimenting with new recipes and cuisines, which often have an international flavor due to the unexpected path her life has taken over the years, leading her all over the world. Before moving to France, Lisa was a medical researcher, then worked with autistic children. She now dedicates her time to writing a recipe blog called Italian Kiwi to share her love of cooking, concentrating on Italian cuisine, which has become such a huge part of her life since that first taste of “real Italian” pasta many years ago. Lisa has strong ties with Piemonte as her husband grew up in Turin. She visits the region many times a year.

Diana Zahuranec
Diana’s passion for food and wine began with a small seed: a class on Italian-American Food Culture in Florence when studying abroad. The mix of anthropology, history, and cuisine fascinated her and didn’t let go. She was also previously enamored with Italy from a classic, whirlwind tour of the country. Upon graduating in Cultural Anthropology, Italian, and International Studies, it was a natural step when she attended the Slow Food University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, graduating with a Master’s in Food Culture and Communication. Following her love for Italian cuisine and trying very hard to stay in Italy, she moved from Pollenzo to Parma to Turin, and today works as a journalist, translator, and editor for Wine Pass, an online magazine about wine and wine tourism in Piemonte based in Alba. Still happily learning about wine, she loves discovering new varieties and particularly likes the Nebbiolos from Alto Piemonte. And, Piemonte’s craft beers are just as delicious as its wines.
