For the last 10 days I have been in various parts of the Northeast of Brazil, exploring at the dunes, going on delta tours, visiting small villages, etc, It has been an incredible adventure and I want to share all of it with you, so….. for the next week or two I will be taking […]

Fancy desserts in Vila Madalena

I discovered the most charming pastry shop in Sao Paulo, Le Jardin Secret located in a small house in Vila Madalena; which actually feels more like a little bakery in Provence France once you step inside! Inspired by their trip to France and the discovery of ‘candied flowers’ the ownders created a sanctuary of sophistication and […]

Panini Please!

Whenever I am in New York and craving a good Panini I always head to Bite, it is super tiny, to- go only but it truly is the best prosciutto and mozzarella Panini in the city.  I was in the mood for a Panini the other day and a friend recommended we try Brera (one […]

Family style Italian experience at Famiglia Mancini

 I am a sucker for twinkle lights and totally wish I celebrated Christmas solely so I could cover my house as a kid (instead made my parents drive around all the neighborhoods to look at the lights) so when I heard there was a tiny street in Sao Paulo covered in twinkle lights I knew […]

Found: Real Greek yogurt in Brazil!

I’m am personally not a fan of Greek yogurt, so this post is for the folks living in Brazil searching for the ‘real thing’ since apparently the ‘Greko’ yogurt in the supermarket doesn’t actually taste like Greek yogurt. The Delicari a new yogurt, ice cream and cheese spot has made a home for itself in Vila […]
