A Taste of Marche Region  #DestinazioneMarche

Mission accomplished for the brave cyclists who participated in the Bike Long Ride Marche – London.    A long ride of 2,100 km, from the beautiful Marche region of Italy all the way to London , passing through the heart of Europe.   From Piazza del Popolo in Ascoli Piceno to the UK , waving Milan goodbye and crossing over the Alps to overcome the Simplon Pass … and then, towards the great “Avenue Verte” connecting the centre of Paris to the City of London.

We participated in this promotional event, hosted and beautifully prepared by Rosso di Sera Italian Restaurant on Monmouth Street in London, who provided a delicious array of culinary excellence and delights from the Marche region. The Italian atmosphere built throughout the evening with the amazing Opera singing, performed by Villa InCanto‘s artists. 

This project was supported by the Marche Region and some of the most important public and private operators of the territory, that help to make it happen. I strongly recommend you to go for a meal at Rosso di Sera in London, and to check out Villa InCanto’s website for their upcoming events and to travel and visit the beautiful Marche region of Italy.

See the post on the Facebook Page: Bike Long Ride Marche – London

Una manifestazione di cicloturismo per promuovere la Regione Marche attraverso il ciclismo, il buon cibo ed il canto. Da Ascoli Piceno fino a Londra, 2100 Km passando da Milano e Parigi, nel cuore dell’Europa.
Una bellissima iniziativa promozionale creata ed organizzata da Marco Fumagalli di Marche Bike Life con il supporto di alcuni sponsors e delle societa’ di promozione turistica locali. Arrivati a Londra, una calorosa accoglienza preparata dai Marchigiani di Londra, presso il ristorante Rosso di Sera. L’atmosfera e’ stata implementata dalla compagnia artistica Villa InCanto con esibizioni canore dei suoi artisti di Opera.
La disponibilita’, passione e simpatia espresso dalla comunita’ marchigiana presente, ha sicuramente creato un effetto attrazione per gli Inglesi presenti, molti dei quali, ahime’ neppure conoscevano l’esistenza della Regione Marche. Mi auguro questo evento sia da esempio e sia l’inizio di una serie di manifestazioni atte a far conoscere e scoprire le regioni e localita’ italiane meno frequentate e che piu’ fanno fatica ad attirare il turismo.

Autumnal mushrooms – Fabulous Outdoors 

The mushroom season is basically over in November but as the weather has been particularly mild all over Europe, nature gets confused whether to hibernate or to keep producing it’s gifts. 

In fact, on a walk through the woods we bumped into a few mushrooms, most of which aren’t edible, but some like these two big ones are ready to be picked and prepared into a natural and substantial meal.. maybe to accompany a polenta.

Any excuse to get out amongst nature rather than sitting on a couch watching TV is great and it’s very good for us all. Get out more as it’s

Italian coffee and cookies

It’s a Sunday morning and I love getting up to put the coffee on.. the Italian moka coffee pot of course! In a matter of minutes, you can smell the flavour of that coffe through the whole house, as the moka pot is roaring, tell you:”the coffee is ready!” 

Together with some cookies it’s a great combination to get you going in the morning.

Alternatively I like to prepare a cappuccino, so in a bigger cup and with some hot milk (soya milk for myself of course..), filling about 1/3rd of the cup with coffee and topping it up with the milk..as it shows on the image below.

And what about yourself, how do you like your home coffee..if you have some?

Thank you for passing by and following!

Preparing food: Pasta sauce Norma

It’s a simple recipe, originally from Sicily, which includes tomato sauce and aubergines. 


I like using the Fusilli as they collect the sauce around them better than other types of pasta.

I cook it in a very simple way, without oil or butter, just chopping onions and cooking them slowly in a little bit of water. The aubergines go in next, cooking with the addition of tomato sauce, herbs and spices to taste.. Et voilá the dish is ready,

Buon Appetito!

Eat simple and clean, be active and feel good, it’s Fabulous Outdoors
