Conversations + Colour: Silvia Colloca
When it comes to girl-crushes, Silvia Colloca is top of our list. Clever, witty, talented, funny, abundantly beautiful, stylish, passionate - look we could go on, but we fear we're gushing (and rightly so).
Actor, author (she's released five books!), cook, professional opera singer; the Italian-born Colloca has accompanied us during many lunch breaks (we *may* have watched her YouTube channel a lot) as she masterfully whips up a range of decadent meals - effortlessly so. We could listen to her speak about food for hours, a sort of ASMR-type situation.
Joyful and generous, we were thrilled to chat with Silvia this week.
