Dreams can come true. The day Dudamel visited Revenga

I was not there, but because of my job for Ron Santa Teresa, I was in charge of writing two press releases about what happened last week at El Consejo, a small town in my home country, Venezuela, when, by surprise, Gustavo Dudamel, musical director of the Los Ángeles Philharmonic, visited the “headquarters” of the recently created Revenga Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Spiked Bicerin

A couple of years ago, while living in Geneva, Switzerland, I met a Venezuelan friend, Oscar Fornoza, who was the king of savoir vivre and savoir faire. Oscar taught me that to have a good meal you just need a bowl of pasta, a salad (usually to be eaten in the same bowl) and, of course, a glass of wine.

1, 2, 3, Sofrito!

One of my 2012 resolutions was to post some of the recipes that I have cooked in the past but for multiple reasons I didn't post on time.

Ginger Mojito

There are mojitos and this one. I got the idea of adding a ginger mojito to my collection, from the mini brochure that came with a bottle of ginger liquor Domaine de Canton.
