It’s funny how time works, you could be stuck in certain moments watching them slip through your fingers faster than you can appreciate them, albeit wishing with all your might for them to never leave your grasp. Then you return to certain realities, and time seems to move slower than molasses.

Luckily since I’ve been back in Florence, I’ve hit the ground running. There’s been some welcomed distractions including new accolade recognizing my tours and more of my published review/writing. Before I get to that, I wanted to share some mushy gushy- then straight on to business I promise! Continue Reading

Sunday Lunch at Trattoria Cesarino in Florence, Italy

I love providing advice to others for where to eat in Florence but when it comes to me finding a place to eat for myself and friends, the whole process can feel agonizing. This process amplified when it’s a Sunday in Florence. But after asking my brain to work, I found Trattoria Cesarino. I hope you too visit if ever in a bind regarding where to eat in Florence on Sundays. Continue Reading

Hello all who dare read! I wanted to share a cool new article I recently wrote for CONDE NAST and let you know the Saveur Favorite Food Blog Nominations are open until MONDAY July 18th (around the corner! go nominate now! Ideally including https://thecuriousappetite.com/ 🙂

Here is the article I did for Conde Nast Traveler

15 Best Things to do in Florence, Italy (I assure you, they had to edit down my list of about a gagillion!)

The tip I’m most proud of is the the last tip about the bistecca fiorentina. The editors asked me about Il Latini and so for the last 4 years, I’ve had about zero interest to go in because the kitschy hanging prosciutti and fiaschi lined Tuscan eatery is so famous- which usually to me means mediocre food and exorbitant pricing. You know, for work I decided to make the investment to try for myself before turning down this recommendation. While I was not exactly right, because the steak was indeed excellent, the sides and primi left something to be desired whereas at Fagioli they do everything on point like the gastronomic saints they are.  So while there is a picture of Il Latini on the slide- if you read you’ll see why I think Ristorante del Fagioli is where it’s at for all things steak.

Now that I’ve given you a major delicious tip, may I ask for a teeny favor in exchange?
