We will meet for a morning tour through the local market (on Tuesday only) and the hottest food shops of Porta Venezia district, in the heart of the City. We will discover the different tastes and stories of cheeses, meat cuts, fishes, vegetables showcased there. We will literally learn how to choose and buy the best ingredients for a delicious homey food tasting. (aperitivo). We will take a break, sipping a cappuccino in one of the best Instagram catching cafes of the neighborhood, experiencing a slice of "dolce vita" (take your pictures and post your Stories!!!), then we will reach a private design apartment - owned by an art collector - to learn how to prepare and offer the typical Milanese aperitivo. We will cook all together while tasting excellent wines and sharing cocktail recipes based on Campari. We will also show the private exhibition of the art collection. If you are a foodie, Milan is definitely the place to be. The love and the consciousness for all what is related with food has been dramatically increased thanks to Expo 2015.
I am a curious arty person, living half life in Milan, half life on Lake Como. I am an active member of a no-profit association, TerraLab3.0, founded by my friend Michela, architect and gardens lover. We would like to promote slow tourism in the places where we live, supporting local farms, small business and sustainable food supply chains. We design experiences to allow tourists to meet locals and live authentically Milan and Lake Como.
I am an active member of TerraLab 3.0 - a no profit association dedicated to sustainable architecture, art, food, biodiversity as parts of our culture and everyday life. TerraLab 3.0 has recently developed a special project, MilanoBellagioEscapes, with the mission of promoting slow and responsible tourism in the places where we live and work: Milano and Bellagio|Lake Como.
Food tasting: we will learn to cook and prepare different appetizers and light dishes for a Milanese aperitivo!
We will enjoy excellent wine and we can also prepare a Campari drink together. Alcool- free options are available!
The district is one of the most vibrant of the city. It is plenty of markets, all kind of food shops, bars, restaurants, cafes. The design apartment where you will attend the Milanese aperitif (prepared by you!) is located in a historical palazzo, and owned by an art collector. You will sip your drink surrounded by artworks and design pieces! You will have a social aperitif in the dining room or on the beautiful terrace over the backyard.
bring your curiosity and.... your camera!!! We are all Instagram obsessed and can't wait to follow you!
