The best chocolate ever


This chocolate really deserve to be mentioned because is great. It comes from Oaxaca, a beautiful town of Mexico. There, they use to make hot chocolate with it (with water or with milk), but I tried it just like that and I can tell that is so good! Consistency is “sandy” and when it breaks in your mouth all flavors come out and make you dream about this unique and enchanting country!

Italy sweet Italy!

If you like cuisine from Morocco 404 restaurant is really good and original, you have a large choice of meals and quality is as I like. Besides that decoration of restaurant and tableware is so refined!

Sorbetto al limone (the original)


In Italy we use to eat sorbetto al limone at the end of lunch or dinner.. we love it because is fresh, has a lemon zing and if is homemade is light (just fresh lemons and sugar inside!)


frozen, before pacossage. can you see lemons inside?

brownie or cheesecake?


Brownie and cheesecake on the same cake?  is a perfect combination! You can spread on it a little bit of apricot sauce or cover it with chocolate glaze.. there are so many options, final taste it’s up to you!
