We moved to Florence just over a year ago because of Marleen's job and this has given Axel the opportunity to focus on food and wine. We love to cook food from all over the world but especially Italian and using the fresh ingredients from local markets that are available to us here in Florence. Wine is another interest of Axel's after completing the 2-year Diploma in Wine from WSET in London and we enjoy finding interesting wines from local wineries in Tuscany and serving these with our food. Summertime is barbecue time and when the weather permits we will sit in our garden - and anything from pizza to bistecca alla fiorentina and chilli con carne will be on the menu!

What to expect at Axel's place
The evening was perfect which included endless wine, lemoncello, a hearty pork roast, pasta and a variety of fresh vegetables. We finished our evening with homemade tiramisu while listening to Maya serenade us with a Ed Sheeran song while playing the ukulele. The evening was stupendous and we were joined by Axel’s father who happened to be there all the way from Morocco. Thank you Axel and Marleen for a wonderful evening in Florence.
