Best Eats: Parma

For those following my Instagram you will know that I just spent an amazing two weeks eating my way though Italy with Nadja.
We did five cities in two weeks by train which I can highly recommend. The fast trains in Italy are great, so clean, super speedy and comfortable.

Açai cups with chia pudding

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of meeting Albana from Amazonian who sell organic and fair trade açai in Switzerland. I’d tried açai before in restaurants/cafés but never at home so I was delighted to give it a go myself.
It almost seems a bit silly to write a recipe on how to do it as it’s actually so simple and there are so many different combinations possible, and no right or wrong way.

Marrakech – what to do

If you’ve read my last two posts you’ll know my recommendations on where to stay and where to eat in Marrakech. In this post I’ll give you some tips on what to do.

We spent almost four full days in the city which we are glad we did. Without the pressure of time we could do everything without having to rush. Obviously there’s never enough time to do everything but we got the chance to do a lot of what we planned.
