SOMETHING ABOUT US
Hi, we’re Imma and Giulio. We took a small part of the internet to share with you our passions: eat around Lake Como and cook!
Tasty Como was born from the idea of make our beautiful city known to anyone is interested. Discover an enchanting place through the pleasure of good food, quality and tradition.
I’m Imma, Immacolata to be exact…as much in name as in fact. I was born in Campania, in a small town near Naples. But you probably had already understood this :) I live in Lake Como since I was 8 years old, from yesterday with the rest of 22.
My connection with food has always been very strong. In my childhood, there has never been a family without food and food without a family. Great tables and especially great meals for any occasion: name days, birthdays, holidays, engagements, weddings, graduations, high school diplomas, kindergarten and university. And of course, the typical topics of conversation in those moments of reunion were … food!
It didn’t help that I’ve worked for 10 years in bars and restaurants. Swimming in the adverse sea of my university career, I was untangling between banquets, ceremonies, cafes and cappuccinos to allow myself to enjoy my delights. But in the meantime, I was creating an indissoluble connection with the world of gastronomy.
All this has never been clear to me. I couldn’t wait to finish university, stop being a waitress and dedicate myself to what I graduated… It didn’t last long, to be honest…
One day I arrive at the fateful question you ask yourself at a certain age…the luckiest ones do it even before and it’s: “What do I really like?”.
The answer was already there. The thing I would talk about for hours without getting tired, the thing that attracts all my attention on the web, television, everywhere is food!
Hi, I’m Giulio! I was born in Como but Sicilian blood flows through my veins. Thanks to this sparkling mix of traditions, I inherited the pleasure of drinking, especially in company and the pleasure of eating: in a company, alone, upside down, while I sleep and while I eat especially!
I love food and I like to taste everything that is prepared. I am not a finicky person, and there is nothing that I don’t like. I eat everything, taste everything and fall in love with many dishes. My motto is “if you haven’t even tasted it, you can’t say you don’t like it“…then the fact that I end up liking everything is another matter…
I had many experiences in my life and I am satisfied with my journey, except for my waiter parenthesis … A disaster between dishes overturned, forgotten orders, pies here and there. That has made me realize that it is better to be on the other side. I hope that those who read this blog have never met me on their way a decade ago, in which case, I apologize so much.
I love the table not only to eat, but also to carry on another passion of mine and my current work as a web marketing specialist.
That’s why I wanted to combine my passion for cooking with my web marketing skills. I hope you enjoy all this, we will do our best to help you…
What we tell on Tasty Como
In addition to telling about our food experiences in the restaurant, we will also talk about everything related to the kitchen.
- Typical dishes of Como: we really like traditions and who keeps them better than a dish cooked 50 years ago?
- Traditional and non-traditional recipes: learning to cook makes you love food even more. Cooking well (and healthy) is the key to being well, not just at the table;
- Events: in Lake Como there are many events during the year that we absolutely do not want to miss and neither do you…right?
- News: everything that is new, everything that comes to Lake Como and deserves to be known;
- Product information: in the articles we don’t just talk about a restaurant, but we also like to give information about particular products or simply tell their story;
- Our beautiful fur balls: our super helpers will have a special parenthesis. Because having an animal fills you with joy and makes you very happy, especially while you eat ;)
In this project everyone has their own tasks and no less important is the one carried out by our 2 cats. They are a fundamental component of our team. A bit hairy and don’t have an opposable thumb, but they compensate with their charm and elegance.
