I can't EVER get tired of spaghetti con le vongole! I am counting the days to sail off to Venice lagoon with @thefreakyraku and go for a walk when it's low tide to collect some other wild clams! They are incredibly good 🙌🏼👀! . . . . . . . #spaghettinight #pastalife #thevenetian #igitalia #foodlover #clamsauce #paintingwithlight #italianstories #italianlighting #chasingharshlight #feedfeed #lagoonlife #igvenezia #chiaroscuro #moodygrams #aquietstyle #mycommontable #venetiantable #lightpoetry #tablescape #tablesetting #feedfeed #veryveryvery #browsingitaly #stylingtheseasons #f52food #liveyourroots #venezianity #huffpostgram
The opening of my father @luciano_zarotti 's exhibit was a success, more then 300 people came to enjoy and celebrate the moment with us! I want to thank from the bottom of my heart all the dear friends who shared with us this important event and especially @lspinelli_photo who took hundred pictures while I was too busy saying hello everyone, and @bon_tajer staff for the amazing catering and delicious food! -- This is @luciano_zarotti 's official monograph, for which I worked SO hard in the past months taking all the pictures present on the book. This is the reason why I've recently neglected a bit my blog & instagram feed...I was too busy disassembling and assembling huge canvases in my papa's atelier, to get the images you can see on these pages. A massive work... but it was worth it!!! ???? The monograph was presented Saturday in occasion of the opening of his personal exhibition "Veneziano Pop" in Cà Pesaro - International Gallery of Modern Art of Venice - and now is available at the museum's bookshop and on Luciano's website very soon too. Texts are both in english and italian ????

On the way to our temporary home in Paris (the cozy @_lamerti_ 's apartment just near Montmartre!) I took this picture of my dear @piabrunost with whom I am doing an exciting retreat soon!!! I know many of you are waiting for another photography retreat... but this one is going to be something unexpected and surprising! It will be all about @stralayoga guided by @piabrunost, delicious nourishing food prepared by your beloved freakytable, and the healing touch of @thefreakyraku who, by the way, is not only a raku genius but also a shiatsu master! All this happening in the beautiful untuched nature of Northern Norway, Senja island, from 13 to 18 March. To learn more about the event and to reserve your spot check this link: https://renatarucka.com/2017/12/06/connectedness-yoga-retreat-on-senja-northern-norway/ ! I hope to see some of you there, we're going to have lot of fun together! ??✨ #connectedness . . . . . . . . #parisian #lightpoetry #lightpainting #stairwaytoheaven #artofvisuals #igparis #beinspired #theartofslowliving #lifeandthyme #moodygrams #chiaroscuro #postitfortheaesthetic #stayandwander #chasingharshlight #creativeminds #visualinspiration #stralayoga #lifestyling #photographysouls #simplyliving #parisstairs #dslooking #communityfirst #lifeandthyme #travellingram #igfrance #lightlovers #postthepeople #feedfeed #montmartre
My friend @piabrunost will be here in few days and I am already planning some epic meals for her! I feel like my nonna ?? on Christmas Holidays: freaking out chosing what to make! ❤️? This fabulous Torta della Nonna (just to stay on-topic!) could be your, Renata! I found the perfect recipe on @valentinahortus wonderful cookbook! . . . . . . . #cakeofinstagram #flowersofinsta #moodygrams #naturallyvegetarian #recipes #artofvisuals #postitfortheaesthetic #italianstories #italianfood #feedfeed #lightpainting #lightlovers #chiaroscuro #lifestyling #beinspired #creativeminds #cakeoftheday #tortadellanonna #visualinspiration #stayandwander #foodphotography #stylingtheseasons #lightpoetry #moodygrams #mycommontable #simplejoys #whatilike #dslooking #tablescape #chiaroscuro
Chestnut Flour Crepes
Everything has its proper time, it’s like a rhythm that marks the progression of life. However, it isn’t always easy to find our own time. I know I have a slow rhythm in the morning and it is sacred. This comfort-breakfast is a homage to slowing down. Chestnut Flour Crepes Flavoured With Rosemary, Chestnut Honey, Orange Peel And Almonds <3

Chestnut Flour Crepes With Rosemary, Chestnut Honey, Orange Peel And…
The crêpes that I prefer are those made with flours different from the usual ones. For making these crêpes, I have used chestnut flour, which reminds me of the castagnaccio cake, a typical humble italian cake of rural origins. I am so happy to announce that I am one of the guest bloggers who are a part of @valentinahortus ebook Dolce Vita Breakfast! Ceramics are @thefreakyraku pieces.

Crispy Browned Pumpkin Gnocchi Al Cucchiaio With Herbs
***New post on #thefreakytable ! "I love humble food, frugal meals and local traditional recipes because they have their own noble simplicity. For me, pumpkin gnocchi is one of those dishes that more often has coloured in orange my parents' dinners with their artist friends, in front of a blazing fire."

No-bake Blueberries & Greek Yogurt-ricotta Cream Tartellette With Amaretti…
Food is a very powerful tool. Food instantly connects us to our most intimate memories, it connects us to the people we had shared it with and, of course, to the place it is associated with. There wouldn’t be any recipe, any idea, any image, any story to tell if we weren’t emotionally tied and connected to something.

Roasted Cherry Tomato & Anchovy Crumble Spaghetti
Another recipe with my beloved yellow cherry tomatoes freshly picked from my vegetable garden. This is a dish of whole wheat Spaghetti with caramelised cherry tomatoes & anchovies crumble. The oval plate in the photo was entirely designed and handmade by myself, it's a #freakyraku product!

My Valentine! Nope. My Fox, as I usually call him! My talented @thefreakyraku maker, genius improviser of crazy idiot jokes, boatman in the lagoon, hopeless nerd, certified shiatsu expert (for real!), voracious eater of EVERYTHING that comes out of my kitchen, but above all dreamer, just like me. With him at my side I feel complete. Not only today, but every single day, since 2009 ❤️ Happy love day! #loveislove . . . . . . . #valentinesday #chasingharshlight #foodlover #moodygrams #morninglikethese #artofvisuals #darlingmovement #simpleliving #postitfortheaesthetic #makersmake #italianlighting #lightpoetry #cakesofinstagram #cakesoftheday #artofvisuals #beinspired #loveisintheair #darkside #foodblogfeed #f52grams #lifeandthyme #lifestyling #beardgang #igersitalia #feedfeed #darlingmovement #stillbeautiful #foodstagram #postthepeople
