  • Eat like an Italian

    20 July, 2015 Eat like an Italian

    If you’ve ever been on holiday to Italy, like us, you’ve probably eaten classic pizzas, pastas and risottos until you’re fit to burst. While sticking with what you know isn’t always a bad thing, delve a little deeper and you’ll find the true heart of the region; eating cotoletta in Milan, beans in Florence and artichokes in Campania will open up a whole new world of Italian cooking. We spoke to three Air B’n’B hosts about the food of their region, must-eats while you’re there, and asked about the best-kept secrets when it comes to eating out.

How to plan the perfect winter feast

Trine Hahnemann
09 November, 2016

Having people over for dinner is a big part of my life, as I do a lot of different kinds of dinner parties. There are the ones where I just open the fridge and cook whatever there is, place the food on the table, and then let people grace over the hopefully delicious outcome. At other times I plan and really get down with it. I also love that: the anticipation and just the hours spent in the kitchen, first drinking tea and coffee, and later cooking with a glass of wine in my hand. In my house, I never plate food; everything is served on shared platters. I lit the candles, and the scene is set for some real hygge. Then I just wait for people to show up.
