My best Polish friend has always been giving me shelter and a bowl of Chlodnik, the most colorful soup you would ever taste in your whole life!
When you haven't been home for the holidays in over ten years, you need to make new memories and your own traditions. When covid-19 doesn't let you travel towards your new traditions, you've got to bake. That's how I invented Panettabka!
Between several kinds of puccia bread, the "ujarola" one with white onions and black olives is hard to replicate. You must go to Apulia and try to find it in the bakeries all over Salento. It is worth the trip!
Although the Bloody Mary cocktail was not born in New Orleans, this is where you can find a very original spicy one that it's almost impossible to try somewhere else!
I've been living in Istanbul for 10 years, experiencing Ramadan traditions, sharing (and now preparing!) Ramazan pidesi, a circular bread that is a must during this special month.
