Santa Clara 1728

Santa Clara 1728

Lisbon, Portugal

São Vicente, Lisbon, Portugal. “This is where our friendship begins”. This is the message we sent on WhatsApp to the owners of the Santa Clara 1728 hotel during our travels. That morning we were leaving Lisbon, driving over the Vasco de Gama bridge towards Arraiolos in the Alentejan countryside, to reach their farm for a few days…

Malga Gostner

La Clinica Gastronomica Arnaldo

La Clinica Gastronomica Arnaldo

Emilia Romagna, Italy

Saturday is market day in Rubiera. We cross the general gaiety that enlivens the routine of towns and neighbourhoods every week and go to Arnaldo’s for lunch. Therefore, we are in the right mood when we read the menu…

Paolo Atti e Figli

Paolo Atti e Figli

Emilia Romagna, Italy

Pushing the glass door of the shop at 7 Via Caprarie feels like turning the page of a tale that started in 1868. Back then, Paolo Atti came to town to work as a baker, still unconscious of the fate that would lead him to start the dynasty of Bolognese gastronomy that still boasts his name. On a Saturday morning, the phone keeps ringing…

Hija de Sanchez

Hija de Sanchez

Copenaghen, Denmark

Whoever decides to tell Rosio Sanchéz’s story will have to start from the phone call during which René Redzepi offered her a job as Noma’s confectioner. She begins, instead, from her childhood in Chicago and her precocious passion for sweets, which has its origin in a family kitchen where Mexico and the USA met…

SanBrite

SanBrite

Veneto, Italy

Pinecones and branches come from the wood, the vegetables from the home garden, cheese, butter and milk from the in-house dairy, and the fresh pasta from the family’s malga. SanBrite is, first of all, an act of love towards one’s own land and roots…

Niedermairhof

Niedermairhof

South Tyrol, Italy

It was probably on a Saturday afternoon, at the special time when the sun disappears behind a mountain. There were two rooms in our name at Niedermairhof. Helmut and Kathrin were in the courtyard, and he was sitting on the tractor holding their ecstatic son on his lap…

My Springtime

My Springtime

by Nadja Buseck

Nadja grew up in a hotel in the Austrian Alps. She studied the history of art, the theory of photography, and dance in Berlin, London, and Vienna, but left academia during her PhD on contemporary dance photography. After gaining international experiences in the arts –from interning at a gallery in Buenos Aires to managing exclusive culture trips– she decided to follow her own vision and founded Where About Now in late 2017…
