Jaclyn DeGiorgio chats with Roberta Abate, a food journalist who has presided over the city’s food scene for the last decade from a couple of prominent editorial positions: editor of FineDiningLovers.it and editor-in-chief of Munchies Italia. This interview was recorded during Roberta's time at the latter, a role she held for five years before stepping down in November.
They discuss what makes Milan and its food scene shine, local dining habits, the charm of the city’s ubiquitous courtyards, contemporary aperitivo culture, and how the food scene has evolved over the last decade, among other topics.
