A Queen In The Kitchen – Estate Italiana: Ravenna

Ravenna is Italy’s city of mosaics, named by UNESCO world heritage.

Watch the new episode of A Queen In the Kitchen-Estate Italiana and discover one of the most beautiful Italian city and why Ravenna should be included in your next trip to Italy:

Five of these beauties can be visited by purchasing a combination ticket €9.50 (€8.50 for children) , one is free and the remaining two have their own visiting options.


  • Mosaics

Mosaics are literally everywhere, from the ancient sites to charming little shops and laboratories where to learn the Art of Mosaic. Annafietta is one of them, in the city center of Ravenna,


  • Food and Wine

Romagna cuisine is delicious and I highly suggest to have lunch/dinner at Osteria Passatelli. Established in 1962 the city center of Ravenna, Osteria Passatelli is nestled inside an old movie theater. Great food and good selection of wines in a unique location.




  • Marina di Ravenna

Founded in the 1930s, Marina di Ravenna is a lively beach town and a very popular tourist destination for families and young ones. This small town offers well-equipped beach establishments, hotels, beach clubs and great seafood restaurants.


  • Ravenna Festival

The Ravenna Festival is a summer music and art festival held in Ravenna during the June and July. The most prestigious conductors have appeared in this world-class Festival (Riccardo Muti, Zubin Metha, Lorin Mazel).

Buona Estate!

Baking Bread Plus: Episode #19: Fresh Pasta Making Feat. Bologna Gourmet 🇮🇹

I’m thrilled to announce that my web cooking series Baking Bread Plus is back, and today’s episode is all about fresh pasta  making.

Watch me learning how to make fresh pasta from the authentic Italian SFOGLINA (pasta sheet maker) Ilaria De Fidio owner of  Bologna Gourmet  and  Casa Ilaria , a delightful B & B directly  located in the heart of the historic city of Bologna (Italy).

It takes only two ingredients (flour and eggs), an over-size  wooden rolling pin and a lot of practice to prepare the best pasta all’uovo (egg pasta)  such as lasagne, tagliatelle, pappardelle, agnolotti, cappelletti and ravioli.
