More about today’s guests:
Emiko Davies is an award-winning Australian-Japanese food writer, photographer and cookbook author based in Italy. Growing up in a diplomatic family, she spent most of her life living in countries other than her own, from China to the USA. After graduating from art school, she ended up in Florence, Italy, in 2005 to study art restoration and fell in love with a Tuscan sommelier. They plan to open their own space for sharing food and natural wine experiences in San Miniato in 2023. Emiko has written five cookbooks, Florentine: The True Cuisine of Florence (March 2016 and a new edition in November 2020), Acquacotta (March 2017), Tortellini at Midnight (March 2019) and Torta della Nonna (March 2021), and her latest book on recipes and the history of Venetian cuisine, Cinnamon & Salt, April 2022. Published by Hardie Grant. She has written about regional Italian cuisine and travel for over a decade. For many years she wrote a regular column for Food52, as well as restaurant reviews for The Good Food Guide, Australia’s leading restaurant guide. She is a judge for the Guild of Fine Food World Cheese Awards, develops recipes and writes travel guides for publications such as Financial Times, Corriere della Sera, YOLO Journal, Good Food Australia, The Canberra Times, Saveur, Conde Nast Traveler, Gourmet Traveller, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Newsweek, The Kitchn, Italy Segreta, delicious magazine and more. Emiko was also nominated as a Rosewood Placemaker for Tuscany in 2021 and you can see some of her exclusive guide to the area here. She was recently named one of 50 powerful women in food.

Marco Lami is a top sommelier. His resume includes working with some of Australia’s best chefs, like Neil Perry at Rosetta, and Andrew McConnell at The Builder’s Arms in Melbourne, and the Michelin starred restaurants of Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole and the Four Seasons Florence. And if you’ve had the chance to let him choose you a wine, you’ll know that it would be a so-called “natural wine,” which we love, and some of you may also know that we are planning to open our own “natural” enoteca, Marilu, next spring.
