Bravissima Silvia

Listening to Silvia’s podcasts brings joy to my life. I’m smiling from the moment I start listening to the end! She has interviewed such amazing foodies! I’ve learnt, you don’t have to be Italian to love good! Bravissima Silvia! Non vedo l’ora di ascoltare altri episodi! ☺️

A voice like honey

Silvia Collocation has a beautiful voice and I love listening to her.
I’m not even a big cook but I love eating and listening to her and the guests talk about recipes from the heart.
There was one episode that I wasn’t a fan of... and that was telling me how to make packet gravy. So please keep the guests to people that cook and experiment so that I feel inspired to give things a go.
Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!
