A GUILTY PLEASURE - MARCH 23 - 3.29pm
Catwalk queen of cuisine
Two words: Eleonora Galasso
Translation: La dolce vita
Celebrating Italian Day at the festival, Ms Galasso is probably Italy’s most effective restorative. Indeed, if she ever tires of her professional duality as culinary activist and kitchen fashionista, a role in taste-based public health (both clinically and sartorially) is surely calling.
Funny, colourful, learned and chichi, her talk on ‘Women and Food Across the Centuries is always a festival highlight.
And enlisting her for the Friday afternoon slot was pure genius. After all, nothing quite prepares one for the weekend than a shot of Prosecco infused joie de vivre.
