It’s always great to spot concepts that know how to hit the social media with Instagrammable food! Piccolo Me in Australia is one of those concepts where their guests talk about the fun factor of their  food and how delicious it is. The coffee chain Piccolo Me started back in 2012 and has 12 outlets as we write. Their menu is a mix of dishes, they serve a Cheesy Frenchy (a Cheeseburger in a croissant), a Piccologato (a twist on the classis affogato) and since a couple of months the Crospresso!  read more

The Vive La Tarte bakery, located in the Ferry Building in San Francisco created the Tacro, the newest croissant-hybrid food craze. You have to eat the Tacro like a taco, it’s stuffed with savoury fillings but it’s made of crispy croissant puff pastry. We wrote about it in our ‘Trends we spotted in week 4 of 2018’ and recently got images, that’s when we decided to write an article about it. And at their Facebook page we saw that they’ve got a new creation: Gotcha Mocha! If you’re a baker you might want to go to San Francisco for inspiration but if you’re a tourist you might consider to simply enjoy a Tacro for lunch at Vive la Tarte! read more

June 1st 2018 the Raffles Europejski in Warsaw opened. Bringing over 160 years of history and heritage to the culturally rich Raffles Hotels & Resorts brand, this fully restored Polish icon joins Paris (Le Royal Monceau) and Raffles Istanbul as the third European destination where the inimitable Raffles experience can be found. Not only art but also the skill of Polish craftsmanship is represented within the hotel, whether in the lighting, in the carved burl wood headboards, the parquetry floors or the Warsaw skyline etched into the grey marble bathroom walls, rooting Raffles Europejski firmly in Poland. This sense of place is emphasised by the venerated hotel’s location on the historic Royal Route, with views from spacious and elegant guestrooms onto the Old Town, the Presidential Palace and, across the city’s biggest square, to the eternal flame burning at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the leafy Saxon Gardens behind. The 106 rooms and suites are classically stylish with blackened oak floors, contemporary Polish art, a corner library and sleek marble-clad bathrooms with Art Deco touches. All Raffles hotels have their own signature in which art is very important, you will enjoy wandering through the hotels open spaces whilst enjoying the art!  read more

While planning a trip to France and Italy for September I came across restaurant CONDIVIDERE by Lavazza in Turin. I will most certainly try to make a reservation while in Turin but I think more foodies would love to make a detour for this restaurant. CONDIVIDERE will be housed in the new Lavazza headquarters in the heart of Turin, a symbol of a city that wants to be a leader in haute cuisine, as well as the capital of Italian coffee. CONDIVIDERE by Lavazza is commissioned by Lavazza and designed by Ferran Adrià. The interior space has been designed by Dante Ferretti, while the kitchen and the management of the restaurant will be supervised by Federico Zanasi, a young and brilliant Italian chef.
