Kids love coloured food because they can associate an exact colour with their favourite toy, or cartoon character.
Less happily their mothers will struggle to remove those stubborn blue stains from clothes, but this is another story. Anyway, sorry mum! In the meantime, the society we live in has shaped a stable idea about the food we eat, its wide range of colours and the flavour we associate with each one of those shades.

In other words we develop a precise idea of what a certain food should taste like based on its appearance in our own cultural context. This is why we are confused, and at times disappointed, when this matching does not happen. Now, try to picture a young woman being tricked by her friends into drinking what looked like a blood orange smoothie.
Yes, that woman shouting at her friends was me. Yellow watermelon on hungryforchange. Sometimes it can also be fun to see our cultural certainties crumble, like the first time I tried the yellow watermelon.

I was visiting a nice Japanese lady in Tokyo, when she brought a beautiful blue ceramic plate with some precisely cut slices of yellow watermelon. A first bite and within a moment I felt so stupid! Because it was even sweeter than the common watermelon I crave every summer. I am sure that without this experience I would have never bought that fruit because of a preconceived idea. For example, an experiment conducted by the Ohio State University showed how using a red colouring in white wine led the unaware participants to describe the aroma and the flavour of the drink with adjectives belonging to the semantic field of red wine.
Colours influence our daily life and even the choice of the food we eat. I am fascinated by the way our brain works, leading us to pick a specific coloured food over another simply because it gives us pleasure. What do you guys think about the influence of colours in the choice of our food? Please let me know in a comment below. I am really curious to know about your favourite ones, so feel free to leave a comment. In the meantime I will try as much as I can to keep you updated about my foodie adventures in London, or everywhere else.
Sono davvero curiosa di conoscere i vostri odori preferiti, quindi sentitevi liberi di lasciare un commento. The sound of rain, which is usually relaxing for me, now carries a sad message: Summer is officially over. In other words, for many, ice cream season has come to an end, but not for me. For those of you who are wondering, no, gelato is not just a mere translation of ice cream.
We are talking about a different product with a softer and lighter texture than ice cream. The first time I got licorice, but I was curious to try pistachio, because I judge a shop valid by the ability of producing a real pistachio gelato without food colourings or artificial flavours that I can immediately recognise.

Pistachio was as it should always be, a natural light green to almost beige shade and a real taste of pistachio, which means nutty, almost salty. However, licorice was what impressed me the most: bitter and sweet, too strong for some, but definitely not for me, because I loved how this particular flavour and its aftertaste were perfectly combined with their creamy texture.
I went back to Gelupo the week after and I tried ricotta and sour cherry and apricot and amaretto.
Again the texture was creamy as it should be, but I found amaretto to be too much overpowering as I could not really taste the apricot. Passion fruit was so refreshing and well balanced, while matcha was not as I expected in terms of flavour, because I found it mild.
In all fairness, I have to say that I am more used to the matcha gelato that I tried in Japan, where the product uses a more bitter green tea which is balanced with the sweetness of the cream. However I understand that a mild version is much more appreciated by a western palate. The second time I felt sure enough to try some unusual flavour, so I chose honey and rosemary with orange zest. Quite impressing given that both rosemary and orange being very strong flavours contrasting with each other on a mild base, honey.
As much as I liked to experiment, I believe an entire cone is too much though. Between the two I choose …both! Ho apprezzato molto come questo particolare sapore e il suo retrogusto fossero perfettamente equilibrati con una consistenza cremosa.
Tra i due scelgo … entrambi! Italian food is amazing. This testifies how travelling changes our own way of thinking and in this case eating, opening our minds to new food adventures. For example with the exception of Nutella,I personally never considered spreads as fundamental. Yes, the occasional peanut butter on toast once in a while, but never a necessary pantry staple. Last week while I was pushing my trolley in a busy aisle of my local supermarket I saw Marmite , the British yeast spread, and something happened in my mind.
When I was in Australia 3 years ago I tried Vegemite , the Australian yeast spread, because I was curious about the flavour. These words sounded like a challenge I had to take up, so I gave Vegemite a go and I ended up really liking it. So when I saw Marmite, its British opponent, on the supermarket shelf I knew I had to try it see for myself how different it was.
Also to discover which side I have to take during the heated arguments between my British and Aussie friends on which spread is the best. Before I start, for those of you who might wonder why anyone should eat a yeast spread, you will be surprised to know that both Marmite and Vegemite are rich in Vitamin B and folate. Yast spreads, you either love or hate them.

I my case I ate them and my impartial choice is: Vegemite! Both were surprise by the unexpected flavour but while my cousin was nauseated, my auntie loved it. Questo testimonia come viaggiare cambi il nostro modo di pensare e in questo caso mangiare, aprendo le nostre menti a nuove avventure gastronomiche.
Anche per scoprire da quale parte stare durante le accese discussioni tra i miei amici britannici e australiani su quale delle due creme sia la migliore. Vegemite o Marmite, o si amano o si odiano. The Snow Queen Milla.

Quite a lot of snow I would say. Vesuvius volcano. My Osvaldo pizza. Vittorio pizza.
Well, I have to say that the kitchen staff made up for the wait with their flavourful dishes. Same goes for G. Gelato Puffo or Smurf Ice cream. When I was little, I always went grocery shopping with my Mum for Nonna and as I gave her the loaf of freshly bake bread we bought, she used to reward me with the first crusty slice. Crunchy and still warm. To me barbecue smells like the end of summer. The barbecue rewarded the all the hard work of those two days.
I can still picture it in my mind: Nonna and my mother checking the last bottles while my dad prepared the fire and I was either climbing on a tree or playing with the ball. Yes, very feminine of me. Oh, I would really like a slice right now! That was the scent of uncountable lunches together year after year. Strawberries : I remember my dad picking me up at elementary school on Saturdays, asking me to smell his hands and guess.
It was his way to tell him he was coming directly from home where cut strawberries and then seasoned them with sugar and lemon juice. It was his way to treat her daughter on a Spring Saturday. And now in Italian. Croccante e ancora caldo.
