Le Festival des Arts de la Rue

Burgundy and more attractive South Burgundy is mainly heritage landmarks, grand châteaux like Ducs de Mac Mahon's Sully, named the Burgundy Versailles, roman churches, and vineyards regions, producing the best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Alligoté and Gamay, sparkling Crémant wines. Including the most acclaimed and famous red wine from Romanée Conti and white wine from Corton Charlemagne, the top of the top, no wine but experience actually.
But in summertime this is no more the posh and classic Beaune city, pearl of Burgundy to lead the orchestra, it's a small down south town at the cross roads of everything, heritage like the photography inventor hometown, Nicéphore Niépce, Les Rousses ski region, fishing rivers, countryside, I named Chalon a best kept secret along the beautiful Saône (pron. soan) river, located south of Dijon and north of Lyon.
A street art festival is taking place there every year around the 19/20th of July, lasting 4 days and for the great pleasure of thousands of tourist families and fairly good popular street artists performing walking down the streets of the historical town.
At nite friends got together in bars and improvised street bistrots, none-the-less food is excellent, meat from Charollais region being known as one of the top list best cows in the world giving the best cheeses too! Here on my pic the famous night meeting hipster spot LES 120.
Although Vin Rosé is not a special of this region, it's okay when temperature is too hot outside, it gets sometimes up to
90F but is normally around 72F then as we drunk it with plates of great homemade saussages and andouillettes with Moutarde de Dijon a waouh snack and then another friend joined the party and decided to offer Dom Ruinart a great Champagne just for the pleasure of it. And so on for the whole night.

  So many people are on leave in summer time in France, it's rather silly as the best period is really summertime.

Here, the proof why we don't need to go vacationing abroad : a "chilled" glass of excellent vin rosé de Bandol, Provence.

  Actually as any one in France I didn't know who was Emmanuel Macron before his election as the president of the fifth or sixth nation of G20. But now he is a freshly appointed president and we can figure out better his personality, which is sort of strong, determined and driven. It's driven by Bibi aka Brigitte Macron his senior wife who is elegant and said to be intellectually brilliant. French press relates to him as Jupiter.

Now, the deal at the eve of 14th July for frenchies which is Bastille day for Americans, this deal is inviting with Grand Style the president of the United States of America to what is considered the epitome of Paris landmarks, I named the Tour Eiffel and ultra hipster one star at Michelin tho restaurant (not so hip but chic for tourists) Le Jules Vernes. Plus you really have to know that its Chef Alain Ducasse (on the right bending to listen to Bibi's recommandations under Melania's scrutiny on the picture) is the master of all chefs in France, said to be.

as you know coffee is an essential item in the day of an Italian. My last acquisition is a dream glass coffee maker, I chose Hario, the Japan maker for the quality of the glass. I drink freshly brew bio Popayán coffee bean, soft, so lightly acid you won't feel it, clear but fruitful in flavor. #popayàn, #hario #coffeeglassmaker

La Durée, the most wonderful yet delicious macaron

The best treat while in Saint Germain des Prés? Probably La Durée ! No doubt...The sister tearoom of La Durée, rue Royale à Paris, with a Napoleon III atmosphere like Marcel Proust's unique memory research novel Le Temps Retrouvé. Among the most authentic macaroons in Paris, let's admit it the first one ...The location will catter you a nice lunch too.

today a slowfood recipe with zucchini

mobile_picturemy kitchen table photo Roberto
Question: why is it called slowfood?
Answer: cos almost every element comes from the next door food market nd will be cooked by you
Friends gave me a big zucchino from their garden. Yes, just one big enough to prepare à la provençale gratin for a whole family.
Recipe: fried onions and garlic in a pan with olive oil from Provence Alpilles, slice the zucchino in rather thin slices, keep them green so they stay crunchy but cooked, add some fresh herbs, thyme, rosemarin, zechuan pepper and salt plus grated macis, then pour the preparation in a gratin plate, whip 2 eggs with some fresh cream and grated cheese like peccorino or montasio and put in oven for 35mn at 6/7 | 180*C

why are you leaving in summer?

RECETTE : la pizza aux pommes de terre | recipe for a pizza with potatoes, yummy!

mobile_picture#pizza cum poatoes ph.roberto
hum that recipe is not a family one, in northern Venezia we don't have pizza, we eat pizza but the region food is about polenta more than pizza...But this one is simple and easy slowfood pizza to prepare, buy bread dough, fresh thyme and basilico, then work the dough as flat as you want, grate parmiggiano reggiano on it with the thyme, slice as thin as possible with mandolin or slicer the potatoes with or without their skin as you like it, is uptodate to keep vitamins and skin now, add some black olives, fresh thyme, roughly cut by hand the basilico leaves it's the way italians do, grate some more cheese, put to oven for 25mn on 6 a regular heat for a pie, pour crude vergin olive oil when the pizza is out ready. Doc my own version

Jun 18, 2016


mobile_picturethe story goes... the recipe is so simple yet the taste depends on where you'll drink it with whom or alone. It comes probably from an old austrian habit to spruzz' or spretzen / to spray sparkling water in high alcoholic wine from Venice region given the name spritz, the bitter taste Aperol is popular as hot summer drink in my family region.

L'apéro à la mode, le SPRITZ de Venise

mobile_picture"L'heure du Spritz" en Bourgogne! ph.roberto
Le cocktail du moment au Prosecco, vin pétillant d'Italie (un blanc de blanc), est hérité de nos amis Vénitiens ou plus exactement des amoureux de la lagune car le Vénitien tradi est un peu plus snobinard sur les bords.
En effet c'est en Italie qu'une ancienne tradition populaire, la passeggiata, consiste en fin d'après-midi à s'offrir un apéritif tout en déambulant dans les rues en tenue soignée.
Les français en sont fous, allez comprendre et comme ma famille est de Venise c'est pour moi un étonnement parfait.

Ce que j'aime chez Ikea c'est une sorte de dépaysement facile, que je meuble mon appartement de Lavender district à Singapour ou que je me ballade à Stockholm, c'est drôle et sympathique, plein d'étudiants qui diritent szns fin leur boisson et chat unlimited et d'enfants qui jouent aux décorateurs comme la grosse fille rigolote de M6...À côté de nous, un petit garçon faisait déjà sa liste au père Noël et ça commençait par: une lampe bleue tu sais maman, pour lire sous les draps....
