Autumn breakfast

This year I’ve received lots of presents for my birthday (I’m a lucky girl!) and one of them was this amazing cookbook. Breakfast is my favourite meal so I was more than happy to have in my hands a whole book dedicated to it! This delicious and healthy (-ish) recipe was the first one we tried but I can guarantee you it’s not going to be the last one!

Focaccia Veneziana

We’re having quite a nice Summer, with high temperatures and just a few Summer showers. In fact, we are enjoying the best Summer since we moved to Germany. But a couple of weeks ago our Sunday was just like November. Dark, rainy and cold. So I decided that the best way to cope with such a terrible day was trying a new recipe from my new cookbook. There is something so comforting in the scent of freshly baked goods… It improves the most terrible atmosphere. And this rum infused fragant Focaccia was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Atelier September, Copenhagen

This could be the best discovery we’ve made so far thanks to Instagram. Oddly enough, this popular and massively instagrammed cafe in Copenhagen offers no wi-fi. It represents to perfection that back to the roots trend that is steadily spreading across the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Natural produce, minimal concepts and basic preparations. Of course, we wanted to give it a try.

SP34 hotel, Copenhagen

Any visit to Copenhagen should be focus on design, excellent food and long walks or bike rides. The city has a smart casual code, is friendly yet sophisticated, open but walkable… it’s simply one of those places that makes you fall in love and think about how real life would be living there. But since travel is phantasizing, you should look for an accommodation that gives you that illusion, that makes you feel like a local in the know, that exudes the personality of the city where it’s located.  Hotel SP34 provides that experience. It will make you believe that you are one of those young, tall, smart, total black outfit wearers, cool bike Danish riders.

Ugly little pies

Did we mention that we love brunch? Oh maybe we did a couple of times… (Exhibit A, B & C). It might be the sun shining a little bit these days, or the fact that after two crazy weeks at work we finally have a few days off, but we are looking forward to preparing huge Spring brunches for our friends. We’ve been testing some recipes and this one is the real winner. They might not look like much, but these little bacon, egg and cheddar pies are perfect. Tender yet a tad crunchy, soft but with a nice spicy kick thanks to a small amount of mustard à l’Ancienne and really easy to prepare. That’s exactly what you are looking for if you are having guests over, isn’t it?

Roast, London

During our last London getaway we followed Rachel advice and had breakfast at Roast. After strolling around Borough Market we decided to have a second (yes, second) breakfast and we enjoyed a fantastic quiet morning overlooking the market. 

The Mandeville experience

London is one of our favorite destinations when it comes to weekend getaways but finding a nice accommodation can be tricky. We have stayed in really different places: from the überpriced B&B in Paddigton to a huge hotel facing the famous Big Ben. But we finally have found our home in London. I never thought I would say that, but we have found the hotel where we would love to stay from now on every time we visit London. The search is over. Let us introduce you to The Mandeville Hotel.

Ada Palace Hotel, Madrid

Every time we visit Madrid we want to make the most of it: see all our friends, go to the theater, chek out the exhibitions and eat in all our favourite restaurants. In order to do that, we try to spend at least a couple of days in the city center. Last Summer we booked a hotel that was not very nice… but this time we made a great choice: the Ada Palace Hotel.
