A DAY AT GAMBERO ROSSO COOKING CHANNEL IN ROME - UN GIORNO A GAMBERO ROSSO DI SKY ITALIA

Today I went to Città del Gusto of Gambero Rosso TV channel. Here I am with Massimiliano Mariola, chef at Gambero Rosso..  I participated in the Gambero Rosso daily cooking show   Questo L'ho Fatto Io and I prepared niku-jaga, a Japanese dish and Massimiliano loved it. He was very impressed by the combination of sugar and soy sauce, mirin and sakè.

COME FLY WITH ME! ... VENITE A VOLARE CON ME!

I am afraid of flying and have not taken a plane since 1994, but I thought it's about time I boarded one:)

Ho paura di volare e non prendo l'aereo dal 1994, ma ho pensato che è ora di volare di nuovo:)

Here I'm wearing  a red hairband  from Accessorize which my daughter Sayaka Alessandra bought for me and a red top dress from Akirè which she also gave me.  The scarf is from Camaieu.

THE UNKNOWN SIDE OF ROME

The EUR (Esposizione Universale di Roma) is an area of Rome built during Mussolini's rule.  It is relatively unknown to tourists yet many museums, churches and historical buildings can be found here.  One such building is the so-called "square" Colosseum, also called the "Swiss Cheese" Colosseum. 


This is the Obelisk on the famous road Cristoforo Colombo, which connects Rome to the beach resort Ostia.



The  Passeggiata del Giappone  (Japanese Path) where you can find many cherry blossoms in this period.
