Posted on December 5, 2008 at 10:18am 0 Comments

Sometimes you can see the herd of elephants in the forest below the hill. Potholes, like any other Indian road, be ready for bumpy drive and tire puncture. No hotels up… Continue

Authentic Italian Cooking or German Classes :-)

Posted by Sefora Cu on December 17, 2014 at 3:59pm 0 Comments

Hi there!

I am an Italian born and raised in Zurich, Switzerland. My parents owned two, now one, Italian Restaurant. At an early age already I was taught the specialities of the Italian Cuisine and how to produce them. I have been cooking very often with friends and taught them the Italian way of cooking - which, of course, everyone loved! I love to share the old knowledge about Pizza, Pasta and so on, and to bring a little bit of the 'Italian way of living' to India :-)
