Pretty Italy, Liam: the food's the bollocks

Tuesday, November 08, 2011


CERNOBBIO - Both the Gallaghers always come on holidays in Italy (last time Noel was here on his honeymoon). This is the view Liam was talking about, from his favourite restaurant, the Black Cat (Gatto Nero) by Como lake near Milan. Liam about his favourite things: "I take holiday at Lake Como a lot. Pretty expensive, but beautiful. If you go up there in the mountains there's a restaurant called The Black Cat. It's outside, on a cliff, and you look over the fucking lake. The food's the bollocks. It's amazing."
The second part of Milan anthem in dialect (Oh mia bela Madunina, oh my beautiful Lady, dedicated to the golden statue of Milan's Duomo cathedral), called "Let the world talk" (Lassa pur che el mund el disa), names the "gurgunzöla" ahaha (Gorgonzola), a kind of cheese from Milan zone, Liam is mad for it. When I was a kid I didn't like it because it stinks :), but it's good and different from all.
This zone of Como lake (same of "The Betrothed", "I promessi sposi", Italian biggest love story, with happy end, unlike Shakespeare's "Romeo&Juliet" in Verona), is where George Clooney used to live with his Italian girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis. Many football players live in this nice place, also because it's close to Milan and Inter training centres, Milanello and Appiano. My first girlfriend was from this zone :), quite similar to Liam's wife.
As Milan anthem says: "...but then everybody's coming to Milan..."
So, as Liam said @ Milan last gig: "have a nice holiday, you deserve it!" :)
