How Turin Epicurean brought me back to blogging

By Carolina Stupino | June 19, 2017

It’s been a busy year. After my last post on my Halloween pumpkin extravaganza I have been working head-on in food education leading two separate projects and also teaching at a secondary college. But now I am back to blogging thanks to Turin Epicurean, an exciting three-day kermesse that will see me chairing one of…

Smashing Pumpkins live in Finsbury Park

By Carolina Stupino | October 8, 2016

Ok, it’s not a gig by the alternative Nineties band. It’s my upcoming Halloween workshop, when I’ll be smashing pumpkins against food waste. On the 24th and 25th October, I will team up with charity Hubbub and teach  kids and grown ups how not to waste huge amounts of pumpkin after carving out their ghoulish creations. Together with…

This has been an intense week. One presentation, a heartfelt goodbye and an encounter with the social media echelon, made me reflect on myself and on where I’m going with my cooking and writing. And I realised that for complete job satisfaction, I need to add a pinch of meaning to my food. It’s a bit…

The pros & cons of a dogma - Tastes of Carolina

The pros & cons of a dogma

By Carolina Stupino | April 13, 2016

Last week Italian social media was boiling with rage. A sacred dogma had been violated. A recipe for a one-pot carbonara appeared on a French website, complete with a video showing bow tie pasta (shock and horror, they even replaced the spaghetti) being simmered with pancetta and onions. This Gallic version of ‘carbó’, even called for creme fraiche to be added at…
