Erasmus+ in Turin

Some weeks ago I received 6 apprentices for two weeks in Turin. They were both chefs and waiters that came from Norway to learn about Italian food and culture. The Erasmus+ project made this possible. Me and my colleague Roberto had some fantastic days and adventures with this funny group of young people. We discovered the…

Just another nice ride in the hills

After the rather exhausting ride from Lanzo to Ca Bianca, the ride to our favourite restaurant in Cudine was just relaxing! It’s not only my favourite restaurant. It’s also my favourite track in the hills. You hardly need to touch the asphalt, there are so many trails in the forest! The ride from Mathi to…

A touristic tour to the restaurant

Last Friday I arranged the first touristic tour to a restaurant on horseback! A young and lovely couple that are originally from London came to experience this speciality! I picked them up on the train station in Mathi. Jason and Gaia came out from the last waggon, but they recognized me easily. First we went…

Riding in the rain!

Turin – the City of Contrast

After spending a snowy (!) day in Turin, I just realize how many contrasts I met on my way. I’m talking about places and people… It’s seldom snowing in town, but in these days we’re expecting the cold weather from the Siberian parts. It was nice to go into a very elegant bar called San…

Sushi time!

The Egyptian Museum of Turin

Last Saturday we went to visit the Egyptian Museum of Turin. It´s the second biggest in the world, after the biggest one that lays in Cairo. It has recently been renovated, and I must say it has become much more interesting to visit. Tour for kids I was quite curious if my son would like…

Celebrating on horseback

Yesterday me and my two friends went to one of my favourite restaurants in Coassolo. The goal was to celebrate Lisa’s birthday on horseback! I guess I’ll do the same thing next year. Is there a better way to enjoy life? The day was sunny and quite warm, and the horses wanted to go running…
