I have been planning to write this post since I have started (not so long ago) this blog.

So here a list of food you should absolutely try if you are in Carlo forte (my mouth is already watering).

1) Focaccia Carlofortina: you can eat plain or filled with cheese, ham, mortadella and thousand of other variations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Farinata di ceci o Fainè: which is like a focaccia made with chickpeas flour.

My favourite place is La Pizzeria Da Gerolamo (Piazza Carlo Emanuele III 25, Carloforte, Italy). I buy both focaccia and fainè there, they bake them (and pizza as well) in a huge wood stove and you can enjoy the food sitting in a lovely Piazza and watching people strolling and chatting.

3) Tuna: Carloforte is worldwide famous for its Tuna. Japanese come here during the “Tonnara” to buy the best tuna and bring it to Japan for sushi and sashimi! So try everything that has tuna in it!

Here just some suggestions:

– Tuna Appetizer: here you find bottarga, musciame, tuna heart, figatellu e tunigna. They are several parts of the tuna prepared in very different ways. Delicious!

Linguine with tuna, olives, pecorino and capers

Spaghetti with bottarga (Bottarga is a salted dried roe of either mullet or tuna. It is sometimes called ‘poor man’s caviar’)

Spaghetti alla tabarkina: with tuna, olives, tomato sauce, anchovies, capers and garlic.

Tuna mousse: to eat on bread or focaccia

4) Cas-ca (couscous) with vegetables or with fish: the best one is here http://www.luigipomata.com/nicolo/default.asp.  Nicolo is famous as the best restaurant in Carloforte and every food you are going to eat here, it’s going to be memorable!

5) Carloforte salad: made with gallette carlofortine, tomatoes, tuna and eggs. Add oil and salt and linger on this summer taste.

There is thousand of other recipes to taste in Carloforte but these are my favourite ones.

Enjoy.

 

On Saturday and Sunday we were again in Carloforte but this time a friend  invited us to join him on his sailing boat and these were the pictures of the amazing natural beauties I took.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it for this post. I let these amazing beauties speak for themselves.

Ps. Carloforte is a paradise for sailing.

Italian women and girls are obsessed with their nails. 

Some like them classical (french manicure or red), others like them full of colors and decorations but anyway we take good care of our nails, which is no always as simple as it sounds whith the daily routine of work-children-house. So we discovered two solutions for long-lasting perfect nails.

Manicure with the Gel or semi-permanent nail polish, called Shellac.

My choice is the Gel Manicure for my hands as my nails are not as beautiful as I wish them to be. The product used in my saloon is the one by La Femme and I find, it suits perfect for my needs. With the Gel, my beauty specialist can make my nails as strong, long and feminine as I long dreamt of.

I am more the classical type and this was my last Gel Manicure.

And my pedicure is obviously matching!

But on my feet I use the semi-permanent nail polish by Shellac as the Gel seems to be too strong for my toes nails.

Red is usually for the summer but my favorite style is the french manicure.

Both Gel and Shellac last a month, my hands are always perfect and feminine and I am very proud of my nails (which are red-ready for my next holiday now).

So, what about you girls and women outside Italy? Are other countries as obsessed with nails as Italy is?

Let me know 🙂

This week-end Carlo Forte is going to be my relaxing place. It is a small island near a big island, Sardinia.

Full of amazing beaches, I am going to have just to pick up one taking in consideration which kind of wind is blowing. Another option could be this one:
