We are so happy to introduce this new section in our blog posts since we felt that our wine lovers missed a space where to inquire about wine bottles, best producers, news and concerns about this world. P.s. Not only wine, we welcome every beverage!
Red wine issue
When it comes to wine, people usually have strong opinions concerning their tastes and preferences. However, when it comes to wine and food pairing, things get more difficult: there are many guidelines about what should come with what, and, more often than not, the pattern usually involves dishes that contain proteins from animal origin. Have you ever noticed?
Read more about it, here!


The New Gastronome
There’s a new magazine in town and it just happens to be truly fantastic!
The New Gastronome is UniSGs new online magazine, presenting articles, stories, recipes, photo essays, videos and many more things created by our own alumni, students and professors. Their aim is to “shine a light on the individuality and uniqueness of food”. And oh, boy! It turned out to be beautiful.
Go to the communications office to grab your own printed version for the cost of 5€.
If you're a UNISG alumni or student that would like to write for The New Gastronome, they'd love to hear from you. Submit your work at:

Tampopo (1985)


Who doesn’t know the feeling? You sit down in a restaurant you just discovered, order your favorite dish and when you take your first bite you think: “Hm, almost there, but not quite it.” Everyone has been on the quest of finding the perfect version of his favorites. The Japanese movie “Tampopo” tells exactly this kind of story.
It’s about a young widow and ramen shop owner, who is trying to turn it into the best noodle place in Tokyo. One day she encounters two truck drivers and ramen connoisseurs who decide to help her become a master of the art.
Told in multiple episodes (some of them only remotely connected to the story, but always dedicated to the noodle), this movie manages to be a crazy and entertaining tribute to food lovers and perfectionists alike. If you’re up for a movie with a different, very Japanese approach to comedy and story telling, or just a fan of ramen noodles in general, you should really give this one a chance.



Alexander Djourdjin

While many have just entered the world of gastronomy, and their dreams and inspirations still look quite far ahead, there are some who have trotted the way to Pollenzo many, many times. And it is those our alumni rubric is addressed to, because hey, who doesn’t need a bit of inspiration and advice on the pressing matters.
Read here Alexander Djourdjin’s story and don’t be afraid to make the next big step.
