There are as many gazpacho recipes as families are in Andalucía. This is ours. And for us, this is the real deal, the naked truth: basic, natural, refreshing gazpacho. Perfect for light dinners in hot Summer nights.
No, we are not going to talk about the top five museums, top five landmarks or top five churches. We could do it… but you know we are all about pure hedonistic fun. So here you have out top five picks to enjoy life at its best in Seville: 1. The Ginger experience at Aire de Sevilla, one of the best spas in town. 2. Two scoops of ice cream at La Fiorentina. Mix the acidic vinegar ice cream with the sweetness of the strawberry ice cream. Or go for the sinful, rich chocolate ice cream and pair it with the heavenly light Vatican Cream. Look for the contrasts. And if in doubt, try the refreshing mint sorbet. 3. Hipster tapas at Alameda. Because this area has undergone one of the most significant renovations in the city, because there’s no way you can leave without trying Solomillo al Whisky and because you’ll see the best tattoos in Seville. Plus the coolest bycicles. If you want to brag in Instagram, this is your place. 4. A few …
Seville has joined the trend and can finally brag about its own gourmet market. Mercado Lonja del Barranco opened its doors last year to offer a modern take on traditional tapas and other typical specialties, becoming a highlight in Sevillle’s gastronomic scene. Located inside a World Heritage Historical Site and next to the famous Puente de Triana, this gleaming new space has conquered all kinds of public: those locals who look for a cool casual dinner with friends and those tourists who look for the best jamón in town.
Last weekend we attended the most wonderful wedding. Our dear friends Isabel & Jesús got married in the stunning Sevillian townhall and celebrated a glamorous party afterwards where we ate and danced until almost the break of the day. We will remember that day for the rest of our lives. It was truly emotional and fun. We helped them a little bit with the wedding preparations, I did a one minute speech during the ceremony (Without crying! Yay!) and we enjoyed their wedding as much as we did ours. Of course, the following day we were barely coach potatoes, but at some point we managed to make ourselves presentable and went out to dinner, payed a visit to our favorite ice cream shop and had a wonderful night walk through the beautiful romantic streets of Seville. This is a more personal post, not something we usually show you here, but maybe you want to have a look at these pictures and read about the funniest weekend we’ve had in a very long time?
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.

Last week we had the pleasure of collaborating with Callwey’s blog. The amazing coffee-table-books editorial asked us if we could prepare a nice recipe to share with their readers. And we decided to recreate a delicious Italian staple: Calzoni alla Vicentina. We made them from scratch, dough included! So head over to Callwey’s blog, if you’d like to learn how to prepare these simple yet scrumptious treats that will make your stomachs jump with joy!
We would love to tell you that we had planned a visit to this little market because we know all the best food markets in London, but the truth is that we stumbled upon its lovely colourful stalls during a random walk. But aren’t these surprising findings the best moments while travelling?
You might be surprised to read this but that picture is not an avantgard painting. That is the most beautiful lobster tartare: look at that texture, those colours! Well, we think this picture represents Geist perfectly, our favourite restaurant in Copenhagen: Geist is surprising and innovative, full of personality and unexpected combinations.
We found out that the courtyard of the magnificent Rosewood Hotel in London hosted a wonderful slow food market every Sunday, so not even the windy rainy weather was going to stop us: we were determined to enjoy the delicious scents, the colourful stalls and the natural, tasty products that the market had to offer.
