Welcome to Appetibilis

ockstyle travel vibe selfieappetibilis.net is… The results of a collaborative effort of a group of friends passionate about Italy and its stories, legends and folktales.

That’s me, Orsola Ciriello Kogan, aka ockstyle a gourmet traveler and the creator of Appetibilis.

Photographer, trained chef and pastry chef, food stylist, and blogger.
Experienced in multilingual content creation: I speak Italian, English, French and Russian.

Rome, Paris, Moscow and NYC are the places I feel at home. Therefore a savvy traveler with a strong cross-cultural sensitivity, who keeps cool in chaos.

At the beginning, I didn’t have a clear picture of how I wanted appetibilis.net to be, I just knew that it had to be appetizing, hence appetibilis, its Latin form…

We love to travel, write, photograph, cook, test-n-taste… Not necessarily in this order 😉

In essence, with appetibilis, we are on a journey to discover, recover and narrate about knowledge and culture of talented artisans and makers in search of an author. Along with local flavors, regional traditions, arts & crafts, food & wine of our unique territory. A constant work in progress…
