The Art of Cooking

LONDON: If you are lucky you will receive an invitation to one of Valeria Napoleone’s famous dinner parties those days. She is one of London’s most powerful art collectors (she only collects female artists) and is known for her dinners at her Kensington Palace where she will cook her native Italian specialties for artists like Ed Ruscha and David Hockney. She is a great cook and this month you can buy her first cook book, Valeria Napoleone’s Catalogue of Exquisite Recipes (Walther Konig), which is entirely illustrated with artworks of her favorite artists. So the book is two in one, you will have a feast for the eye and be inspired for your own dinners with friends by Valeria’s fantastic recipes, for example veal in Marsala or the Zabaglione Mousse, illustrated by artist Julie Verhoeven.

IRMA

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
