JOIA RESTAURANT, MILAN, ITALY
On my 28th birthday, I decided to treat myself to a trip to Milan and of course, I could not resist visiting famous and the only fully vegetarian Micheline star restaurant – Joia.
I won’t be able to describe the beauty of modern presentation, delicious and sophisticated flavours and amazing service in one small article, but it was an unforgettable experience. And of course, a great honor meeting the Chef Pietro Leemann himself!
Absolutely must visit place if you are in Milan.

Another summery thing is cocktails.

Then you definitely need to get yourself Cocktail Cookbook by Oskar Kinberg, an award-winning cocktail master!
He will change the way you drink and believe me, I am talking from my own experience.

Olive oil infused gin, Tonka bean syrup, Sake with honey and lavender…
NORTHERN BLOC ICE CREAM
Summer is officially here and I had to find a great tasting ice cream to share with you, guys. I have tasted a few with not much success but luckily,
I came across Northern Bloc Ice Cream.
Absolutely delicious great quality ice cream. I love their modern approach to traditional flavours and most importantly natural ingredients.
Nothing artificial at all!
You won’t find any additives, colourings or artificial flavourings in their ice creams. All ice creams are vegetarian and sorbets vegan!
Give it a go and let me know which flavour is your favourite!
Mine is Ginger Caramel and Hazelnut and Tonka bean.
PUMPKIN SEED PROTEIN
by Water for Healthy
Often, we hear that vegetarians and vegans don’t get enough protein.
However, let’s not forget that a lot of plant based foods are high in protein.
A good example of this is Pumpkin seeds – a tremendous source of protein you should consider adding to your diet regardless of your food preferences.
It doesn’t stop there: pumpkin seeds are fertile sources of minerals (magnesium, iron, phosphorous, copper, manganese, zinc), vitamins (B2, E, K), antioxidants and dietary fiber – the same fiber that is lacking in popular whey supplements.
Whether you’re looking to build or maintain muscle, or simply incorporate a healthy natural protein source into your diet – one that’s versatile, nutrient-rich and flavourful – pumpkin seeds are a great choice.
Oh, and next time you get asked where your protein comes from, respond with a grin fit for a jack-o-lantern.
MALDON SEA SALT
Salt is an essential ingredient in our everyday cooking. It is also one of the most underestimated ingredients.
It is also one of the most underestimated ingredients.
We often buy the cheapest table salt without even looking at the quality, origins, and content.
But there is so much more to the “ordinary” salt.
A good example is a world-famous Maldon Sea Salt.
The soft flaky texture of Maldon sea salt crystals and the cleanness of the salt flavour, that’s what makes this salt unique. It is loved by some great chefs around the world and, yes,
I love it too!
Want to try something different?
Try the Maldon smoked sea salt flakes.
Works really well with boiled eggs!

VANESSA K. REES
Vanessa Rees is an award-winning photographer specializing in food and beverage, lifestyle and creative photography. She runs a photography studio in New York City called V.K.Rees and works with a number of high-end clients.
To me, Vanessa is a great influencer.
I am not a professional photographer so I learn every day something new and her work inspires me to be more creative with my blog.
Not only her work itself but more importantly the narrative and thoughts behind it are beautiful.
“…Food is about so much more than the food itself. It’s about where you’re eating, who you’re eating with, who taught you the recipe…”
Take a chance to get to know Vanessa a bit closer in an interview with the Saveur magazine.
