Il Falconiere *

There’s not much more I can say about Il Falconiere, after two memorable stays that Cíntia talked about here and here. So I’ll talk again about the starred restaurant, the reason we heard about this wonderful refuge in the first place. Silvia was born in the kitchen, in a family of restauranteurs.

A few free days are always a good excuse for a quick visit to Italy, in this case to the enchanted valleys and hills of Tuscany. I believe it’s always good to return to where you were happy, so we went back to the lovely city of Cortona to another stay at Relais Il Falconiere (see). Wishing […]

Prado

Prado was the most awaited opening in Lisbon’s gastronomy scene for a while. Since opening, in the end of 2017, it has been a case of success, where from the most gastronomic conservative to the most cosmopolite traveler, everyone surrendered to António Galapito’s cuisine. I remember meeting Galapito between the kitchen and the grill at […]

Restaurant Brasão – Felgueiras

We often hear that tradition is not what it used to be, that this or that place has changed, or about the good old days.

Kei

Kei Kobayashi is one of the most famous names in the city of light, with a passion for French cuisine hard to match. A passion that started very early in his life, still in Nagano (his hometown) when enchanted by Alain Chapel’s work in a tv show. And there started his own path in cuisine, first in […]
