New on my blog!
It’s so silent here. I can feel that my online voice is getting weaker and weaker. Apart from being a very sporadic blogger, I notice it when those “memories from x years ago” pop up on Facebook and I realize how much I used to share there and how much more personal I was once. Continue Reading

I had forgotten all about this recipe until Marco brought it up the other week and I’m happy he did because I love these stuffed calamari, they are easy to make once you got the knack of how to fill the calamari bodies and the finished dish tastes great! I serve it on fluffy couscous Continue Reading

Last weekend I had two very good friends here visiting from Sweden and somehow we talked about light (or was it our childhoods? we talked incessantly for three days so it is difficult to remember the details) and I realized that I must have been photographer even as a small child, a photographer without camera, without Continue Reading

Pride is supposedly a deadly sin but I hope I'm allowed to be proud of being shortlisted for the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards in the Still Life category!
I almost squealed (and I’m most definitely not the squealing type) when I opened the email and read the first lines: “Dear Ilva Beretta, Many congratulations on being selected for the Professional shortlist in the Still Life category at the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards. Your work has been selected from 127,098 images entered from 186 countries Continue Reading

Fat! with +Jamie SCHLER 
Kill the Fatted Calf  Fat spitting angrily, bubbling and seething, hissing and spattering violently. No matter the fat, like a woman scorned, it begins cool, calm, and collected. Quite placid. Some fats (butter) smell oh-so s...
