Max Brenner: Chocolate Bar & Restaurant

Restaurant, Chocolate Bar, Chocolate Shop, Chocolate Heaven… Call as you want it.  When stepping into Max Brenner, it becomes immediately obvious that chocolate is religion at this establishment. Great vats of melted chocolate churn away near the entrance, while the Chocolate Shop bursts with rows of pralines, and giant chocolate slabs decorate the walls. Originated…

Through my eyes: New York – There’s more to see

New York is massive and there’s always so much to do and to see! Last week, I barely scratched the surface by talking about Times Square ( you can find my previous post by clicking here). If you, like me, are overwhelmed by the amount of people in Times Square and want to find a…

Through my eyes: New York-Times Square

Love it or hate it, the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Ave, aka Times Square, pumps out the NYC of the global imagination – yellow cabs, neon lights, arches, towering skyscrapers and musical performances. Times Square is an extremely busy area which is located in the center of Manhattan. Above your head, the billboards are…

Through my eyes: New York

Today on the Italian Guest I’m gonna start a new series dedicated to New York. Before coming back to Italy I went there on holiday with my girlfriend and her mum. At the end of December we spent 6 days in NYC. The trip went by so quickly! With so much to do and see,…

Luci D’Artista – Salerno

Hi! How’s your holiday going? I spent almost a week in New York (I can’t wait to share with you more about it) before coming back to Italy just in time for Christmas Eve! My family and I drove to the South of Italy and here, I’m spending some time with relatives and celebrating holidays…

Linguine with Lobster

My first Lobster sandwich, here in New York, reminded me of my Linguine with Lobster. Cooking can be hard but if you have a good teacher everything can be so much easier. My mum has been teaching me so much during the years and from her, I love to experiment in the kitchen when I…

Thoughts on The Table

Hello! Today’s post will not cover a food review, or a travel destination. However, I hope you will still find it interesting! When I started my blog adventure, I had the pleasure to receive the Cannolo Award, which purpose is the preservation of the authentic contemporary (continental) Italian food. The idea behind it goes to Paolo,…

The Magic Tree

Are you ready for Christmas? It is just around the corner, you can feel it in the air and on the streets with lights everywhere! Talking about lights, I went to the The Village of Cherry Hill in Columbia, Missouri in two different occasions to see The Magic Tree, not just any tree, but a all…

A Touch Of Nature

@ninamclernon and I spent our last weeks in Carbondale, Illinois. It was such a good time, I experienced Thanksgiving (if you want to read about it, click here) and its meaning, hang out with family and friends and get connected to nature. There’s something about time spent in nature that makes me feel much better….

10 Things About Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving tradition started with Pilgrims feasting to celebrate their first harvest in the New World (that’s America), and even though the holiday remains quintessentially American (Do you know Canadians celebrate it too, but on a different day?), it’s easy to join in. Thanksgiving – celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November – is considered…

My First Football Game

This past Sunday was a good one. I went to my first football game between Missouri and Tennessee. Every time a game is playing you can hear the chanting from the stadium! My girlfriend wanted me to experience football, the most popular sport in America, according to Wikipedia, so she surprised me with two tickets….

Chocolate-covered strawberries

Three little words can make me happy: chocolate-covered strawberries. Those red, heart-shaped fruits, that melted chocolate, together in one sweet, scrumptious bite. I made them a couple of days ago for my girlfriend aka the chocolate obsessed. No other treat is more romantic than chocolate-covered strawberries. And no other treat is easier. You can also…
