Recently we were on a saturday and around lunchtime in Bregenz – Austria. Sure lunch could not be delayed. Luckily we walked by Alan´s Nudelwerkstatt. There we had some superb fresh made ravioli with sage and dried tomatoes.

Alan Cohen from New York manufactures in Bregenz with two Italian pasta machines, filled and plain pasta. A quite and unique place with lots of character as the owner itself. Up to 8 persons can be hosted on 4 tables. His pasta is accompanied by a fine selection of Italian wines, olive oil, Cantuccini, Panettone and his home made Pesto.

How you can find him?

Travelling to Italy, food is always one reason why we love this country. Just after the border of Switzerland there comes Varese, and Ristorante Bologna is the place to see and to eat, if you want it rustic and authentic italian. We enjoyed to stay there for two nights and were lucky to get at least one table to celebrate Maria´s birthday and sadly the reservation for the other Birthday guests the next day did not work out so well – anyway, Italy was great, as always.

Have a nice weekend – Red wine time

Mushrooms in the forrest:
It was ment to be just a lazy walk in a nearby forrest but I never saw this much mushrooms. With only a knowledge of about 3-4 mushrooms it´s hard to start to collect. And answers like, “hm it could be a …” or “ah this looks probably like a …” isn´t too appealing to pick and cook them for a family dinner. So we were generous and leaving them for the others.
