Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia ("The Place of Aimo & Nadia") is a #Michelin-starred #restaurant operated by two famous #chefs, i.e. Mr Pisani and Mr Negrini @ale.aimo
The two have published a book - entitled the same name as the restaurant itself, where it comes out that the secret formula of the Il Luogo restaurant #success is #simplicity and #topnotch#ingredients plus working in a place where you are feeling home, feeling to live in a family, strongly and passionately together with all the team, the owners inclusive - Aimo and Nadia and their daughter Stefania (great name BTW 😁) and where customers are treated as special members of the family coming to pay a visit.
Well it is what I am often telling my children and my family members or dearest friends, any time we go in a restaurant I perceive 'cold' or whose service was not aligned to the quality-price ratio: you can't #cook excellently for people you do not know anything about, who are not part of the family and/or of your life, or your circle of relations, who are labelled with a table number only, i.e. a number. Individuals are not figures. They are #flesh, #blood, #soul, #belly and #brain. You ought to know whom you have in front of, to prepare her/him the best food possible tailored to her/his personality.
But it is also true another way round: you can't cook well and excellently all the time if you feel it as a #burden, a #mandatory#duty to be fullfilled each day of your life.
That's why many women of my family - myself included, I do prefer to taste and eat 😎 - were half able in the quality of food #preparations than their husbands/partners were in those very rare times they were cooking for us.
No matter how old may I become, how wise I may grow to be, or the might I may or may not one day possess - you will always be ‘daddy.’ And I will always need your support, guidance, and strength as a beacon.
Happy Father’s Day, daddy. Thank you for demonstrating the truest way to being a man.
With love from Dubai, First Sergeant!
After quite a bit of #sleep, as i got ready to head out today, i saw that my #car had a flat #tyre. With the gate open, a #patrolling#police car stopped and out came 3 #policemen offering #help. In a #rush, i said sure why not to the willingly helpful #individuals. They helped me get the spare out of the #back of the car and got down to #business. In a minute, they changed the tyre, and helped me put the #damaged one in the #boot.
Not everything is as it seems. Although one of them asked me for 'eidi' while they were helping me out - #eidi which i gladly gave them. I know they would have helped even if i didn't give them anything. Sure, they'd be #disappointed, but they made an #effort to help.
Many would say i got #ripped off or that i should have #ignored them and changed the tyre myself; but i genuinely felt for them, out on #duty on a #Sunday during Eid - when everyone else is having a #good#time enjoying the holiday with family and friends.
I think, people need a #chance to prove that they're not just a #stereotype. That they are #different. And everyone, should be given chances to say what they #want to say or act.
Happy Father's Day, Papa! I appreciate how hard you worked to provide us with a good life. I know you had to overcome a lot to get as far as you did and you left a great legacy for us to work towards. I know you wanted sons and got three girls; know that I tried to be as 'son' as I could for you. I ended up playing football, too. Funny, right? Thank you for watching over us, thank you for raising us in such a strong culture, and thank you for showing us how to work hard. I sincerely appreciate that lesson the most, even though I complained, I am a hard worker - I am truly my Father's Daughter. Rest In Peace, Papa, and enjoy your restful eternity. I love you, always. -The middle child, Naja #heaven#fathersday#father#island#islandman#blackman#mixedman#cfo#stockbroker#finance#masters#education#study#bermuda #🇧🇲 #🇯🇵 #hardwork#degree#culture#dedication#duty
