“I was able to take over the vacant facility from my cousin. Salento is sooo tranquillo, that we immediately imagined living here. We knew that we still had to put in a lot of work, but we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to build our own restaurant with space for art. At the age of 40, I collect feathers for half of my life, paint them and make earrings or decorative objects out of them. Cooking is also art for me.” says Alejandra, laughing.
“Yes, Alejandra is a really good cook and she fulfills every wish of our guests.“
Alejandra: “In the evening, when the last guests have left, I am sitting there in the back at the table and paint.”
How much time do you need for a feather?
Alejandra: “Only for painting a small feather about 1.5 hours. After that, I still continue to work on it.”
