Au Passage

The Au Passage was born with the Boom of neo-bistros and Wine bars that invaded Paris from 2010 onwards. It soon gained the spotlight and in 2012 it was one of the favorites of the new Parisian cuisine, and even awarded as “Fooding d’Amour 2012”! Destiny dictated that a space that so much reflects a new way […]

Le Roch Hotel & Spa

Luxury is getting much more intimate than palatial! We continuously look for places that make us feel unique and actually important, and less of the bustle of the big hotels. That’s why we chose Le Roch on our last trip to the city of light! Paris is, and will always be, a synonym of luxury, elegance and […]

Assiette Champenoise – Arnaud Lallement

At the gates of Reims, in the heart of Champagne, we found the L’Assiette Champenoise, a classic French hotel-restaurant, open for more than 40 years, nowadays in the hands of the second generation of the Lallement family. Arnaud Lallement early traced his future, without any family pressures, from an early age he knew he would become a cook, growing […]

Assiette Champenoise

After Épernay it was time to visit Reims, more precisely the L’Assiette Champenoise. Here, in this place, there’s one of the best restaurants in France, and where I had one of the best gastronomic experiences (as a Birthday gift)! This place is also a true family history! Jean-Pierre and Colette Lallement opened a restaurant, in 1975, in a village […]

Champagne Pol Roger

Our followers know very well of my fascination about “bubbles” and the charm and versatility that good champagne can bring to a moment! I could name a series of houses and wines I flirt with once in a while, but Pol Roger is my safe haven, for its richness and complexity brilliantly combined with freshness […]

Champagne de Venoge – Les Suits du 33

At the beginning of 2019, we went to Paris once again, the city that fulfils our soul (and our stomachs as well!). But this time we didn’t want to just see Paris and decided to go to a region that captivated our interest a long time ago – Champagne (why would that be???)! We started by Épernay, at […]

&Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge

How do you write about the best experience of your life? It’s been months since I experienced what I consider to be the most authentic and exciting moment of my life… those 31 seconds of the most profound and provocative look I ever felt! No, I’m not talking about an affair, not everything in life […]

Aubergine

German, born in the countryside, on the border with Belgium, became a cook all around the world… this could easily be the short story of Harald Bresselschmidt’s life, who after a successful passage through the Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl, decided to settle in Cape Town and open his Aubergine. It was the year of 1996, […]

Cape Town

V A Waterfront We ended our 2018 travels on the African continent. It was our first time in Africa and it was a pleasant surprise, mostly for me because I had no expectations. I must confess I wanted so much to go to Cambodia and Vietnam that when João convinced me to go to South […]
