MÀ BISTRO

in FOOD THERAPY

Why MÀ?

“Mà” means “hand” in Catalan. The quest for finding the right name started from the word “hand-hands” and its forms in different languages of the world. And there it was, the most simple and poetical shape. Why “hand”? Because everything at Mà is somehow hand-related, from the crafted wood pieces or the walls, to the food itself. Later on, we found out that “mà” means also “us” in Persian. And everything at Mà is us-related.

TUSCOOKANY | Travel & Learn to Cook

in FOOD THERAPY

TUSCOOKANY is a great concept that combines two of the most sought after human pleasures: travelling and food. Here, it is more precisely about learning to cook, as well – authentic Italian dishes from the savviest and most passionate of local chefs: Paola Baccetti, Franco Palandra, and Laura Giusti. In some of the most scenic venues that la bella Toscana abounds in stand the three villas – Casa Ombuto, Torre del Tartufo, Bellorcia -, where you can experience a delightfully multifaceted vacation during which, while you enjoy the splendid natural surroundings, explore towns and areas boasting history, culture, art, gastronomy, you also learn how to cook Italian-style in well-equipped kitchens, make your own pizzas al forno, savour delish, earthy meals in cantinas or marvellous table settings outdoors. Each of the locations has its unique, distinct features that coagulate around traditional design and style, which adds to the authenticity of the entire experience. Everything is designed to give you that feeling of being in an Italian family, where sharing meals and conviviality are of utmost importance and, as stated in the title of the essay below, form the very pillar of the legendary Italian sociability. A splendid cookbook – collecting 80 traditional recipes and the entire energy of Tuscany in illustrative photographs – was recently published. The last paragraph of its introduction sums up what this special cuisine is all about: “Tuscan cuisine can be simple and refined, or aristocratic and rustic, but it is always genuine and tasty, and that also applies to its delicious sweets, where memories of the past often echo, of those Middle Ages when Florence and Tuscany really were at the center of world affairs.”

Why We Need to Eat Together

in FOOD THERAPY

Friends who eat together are said to stay together – and this cannot be more true. Gathering together around a table is one way of showing how interested and happy you are to share food with your friends. While it is normal for families to eat together, friends who don’t see each other daily see gastro-conviviality as a great way to catch up. In such moments, the table itself switches its status as mere furniture and becomes a metaphorical axis for friendship around which relationships strengthen, stories unfold, memories build.
