Best Places to Eat in Milan

This week on FDL we brought you are very own guide to eating out in Milan during fashion week from the chefs who actually work in the city.

We sat down with chefs Matteo Baronetto, Matias Perdomo, Alessandro Negrini, Fabio Pisani and Mario Peqini and asked them to suggest their best places to eat in the city.

From small trattorias to Michelin starred restaurant recommendations we compiled a perfect list of places to dine when visiting the fashion capital of Italy.

Boozy Jams and Preserves

The art of preserving fruits is making a comeback and this week on FDL we took a closer looks at some of the techniques involved in making your very own booze based preserves.

We looked at the art of preserving and offered up some simple tips, including a great recipes for how to start your very own preserving and canning at home.

Take a look at this recipe for ‘Old-Fashioned’ cherry jam with rye whiskey and angostura bitters.

South Africa's Indigenous Gourmet

This week we also took a trip to South Africa to visit a wellness retreat in the Cederberg Wilderness Area, a place that on top of offering breathtaking views features food from chef Floris Smith who cooks with indigenous ingredients and old style cooking techniques that may have otherwise been forgotten.

Smith uses ingredients such as rooibos and fynbos when cooking, trying to incorporate these foods into the dishes he prepares.

This is a nice look at a part of the world not focused on for it's culinary offering and a piece that explores the work of a passionate chef on a mission.
