I moved to Lugano, Switzerland in August, 1995. Lugano is a small city in the Italian speaking canton Ticino of Switzerland. I lived in the beautiful country of Alps, banks, pharmacies and chocolates for fourteen years and this is why I speak very fluent Italian, like mother tongue now and I also know A2 level of German language and A1 level of French language, and I can pick up and understand well a little bit of Romansh and some Italian dialects.
I was twenty-four years old when I moved to Switzerland and I embraced the new culture, food and languages with awe, inspiration and thirst for learning and doing the best I can in anything I love to do.
Living with the family of the father of my older two daughters, I learned to cook in Swiss Italian manner, mastered many home made Italian dishes as well as the sweet Italian language, as my ex-father-in-law was from Bergamo, Italy, and also I learned cooking and baking in a Swiss Graubünden manner since the grandmother of my two older daughters was from canton Grigioni or Graubünden.
Sharing you in this section my favourite cafe, restaurants and unforgettable dining moments which and where I and my family went and when I was still residing in Switzerland, and when revisiting my first foreign, adapted resident country.
