Finally I am back on the island!
I write this lines from my brand new workspace at home, in the lovely village of Deiá, which I will soon describe you a little better in the upcoming posts and… I am really full of joy!
My arrival in Mallorca couldn’t be really more powerful, coinciding with the first Street food event Mallorca has ever seen, VanBig, and being invited as a guest, to teach a food styling workshop, that was one of the greatest experiences I had in life! …Could I really ask for more?
So this post is all about say thank you, thank you, thanks and let you some visual bites of the event…
First let me say T H A N K S to the Vanbiggers who brought to life this festival: it happens I had the chance to work with each one of them in different situations thanks to Picniquette project. To Lina, from Palma based agency Picnic, the most vibrant and energetic person I ever met. To Alberto, the owner of a special organic farm in the wonderful village of Banyalbufar, who I first met on the first Picniquette we organized in Mallorca. The purpose of his project Tomátiga is to bring back to life a special ancient quality of Ramallet tomatoes, native of the island (and in his freetime organizes a cool music festival like Eres Negre, coming soon in July). To Jaume & Elena from slow-food catering Peixos de la Terra. With them I shared one of the best moments of my life in a wheat field, two summers ago, taking pics for their project.
This great people is behind the VANBIG festival and I am so pleased to have been invited to join this gipsy crew to report alll the festival and to teach the workshop!
