On the road: departure!

The trip begins: the HsB goes on the road!
With this new column I want to share sweet experiences from all over the world, international recipes, culinary reviews of bars, restaurants, bakeries or specific dishes, and any other funny or interesting happening that has to do with baking and all that comes with it.

I'll start telling you about a nice day I had in Venice. I was in this magic city with a dearest friend on a warm and sunny autumn Sunday about a month ago. We walked a lot and visited the Biennale: some of the works were quite interesting and nice, some other were really absurd. They made us question the concept of art...

Amongt the "calli e canali di Venezia" - lanes and canals - we found a funny play dough sculpture which the visitor was allowed to play with and modify. So I made a little space for the HsB :)

We also fuond these lovely Murano glas pastries which looked tasty, I wouldn’t eat them though… Anyways it’s incredible all the stuff you can find made of glas, from vases and chandeliers to cookies!

Before leaving we stopped at the Caffe’ Florian for a hot chocolate. This café opened in 1720 in Piazza San Marco and  is Italy’s oldest. While seated in one of the café’s frescoed rooms or outside listening to the orchestra in the Piazza, one can enjoy impeccable service and products of finest quality. I love it as much as I love being in Venice and as much as I love being in Venice with a person dear to me.

I hope to be back soon…
