The Parisian Dream: Bread, Cheese & Wine

Back in 2005, I lived in Paris’ world-famous 5th arrondissement, commonly known as Le Quartier Latin. One side of my incredibly parisien apartment overlooked the elegant St. Etienne du Mont church and the white marble Pantheon. The other had a view of the sloping rue de la Montagne Ste Genevieve, a Parisian street that hasn’t changed much since the Middle Ages, whose quiet and subtle presence is broken only by the weekend nighttime crowds.

Quattromani Divides and Conquers!


Hear Hear! There’s something brewing in the Quattromani pot.  And here’s a hint for you: we’re changing our look.  Any guesses as to why? Remember in the ‘About Me’ section when I mentioned we were Italian Americans, and said

you’d find out the importance of that at some point?  Well, 10 months later, here’s the mystery solved.

As the Romans once wisely said, “divide et impera!”.  Divide and Conquer!  We thought it was time we sent two of our hands to check out what’s cooking on the other side of the pond.


So here’s how it’s going to work.  While I, Dalila, stay here in Rome working with the Rated #1 Food Tour Company in Rome, Eating Italy Food Tours, Marta is slowly but surely making her way across the pond.  First stop, Paris for a few days.  Say ‘au revoir’ to some good friends and some great memories.  Final stop, New York Citaaaay!! The Big Apple, the City that Never Sleeps, and home of Colangelo & Partners Public Relations.  Who knew, when we started this bog for fun, that less than a year later we would both be working in the food business and chasing our dreams one step at a time.

Back to the blog. While our original mission was to cook up, photograph and present to you the most mouthwatering and delicious dishes of our two favorite cuisines, Quattromani is now going to tell the story of two sisters, divided by an ocean, but held together by their love for everything edible, photographing and sharing all our foodie experiences, with each other and with all of you, one hot dog at a time! I can’t wait to start.

Keep following if you’re as curious as I am!

Happy Eating!
