Rome is one of those cities you simply must visit once in your life. At school I learned a lot about the Roman Empire and even studied Latin for a couple of years, so when I visited Rome for the first time, I wanted to see all the places I read about in my books. I went to the Colosseum, Vatican City, the Spanish steps, the Pantheon, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and more. It was a wonderful but quite overwhelming trip, so when I got the chance to visit Rome again, I decided to take things a bit more slowly. Read all about it here!
Summer may be officially over, but we can always try to recreate the taste and feel of summer with a good recipe. With all the photos coming in from Milan Fashion Week (especially those from the colourful Dolce & Gabbana show) I’m personally craving the taste of Italy, and so I wanted to share a pasta dish that a friend of mine once cooked for me and that always brings back my memories of the Tuscan sun even when I’m in (rainy) London.
