lisamariecorso Today's Tasty Tuesday via the Nonna Corso kitchen is 'pasta broccoli' aka orecchiette with broccolini, parsley, lemon and parmigiano-reggiano. Fun bi-lingual fact: Orecchiette is called orecchiette because it looks like an ear. The Italian word for ear is orrechio. So if you've had a really hard day at work, know that this pasta is a really good listener, it's basically boyfriend material. Photos by @evegwilson, with styling by @thedesignfiles and @natturnbull. Full recipe on thedesignfiles.net now! 3h

lisamariecorso Just like a sneak peek trailer for your fave HBO show @thegoodcopy shop is coming soon. Pictured here 'Freelancer Flops' and hand-bound composition notebooks. If words are for nerds this place is utopia. 5h

lisamariecorso Today I successfully got a Whoopi Goldberg, Nora Ephron, John Hughes AND Simple Minds reference in the one blog post on TDF. A career milestone if you ask me. It's TASTY TUESDAY time and today's recipe straight from the Moonee Ponds kitchen of Nonna Corso / my mum is this zucchini, pumpkin and potato frittata served with crusty bread, ricotta and a radicchio salad. It's totes radicchio as the Italians would say* (*okay pretty sure they never said that). Props to dream team of @evegwilson on photos, and styling by @thedesignfiles and my gal @natturnbull. Full recipe up now at thedesignfiles.net! 1w

lisamariecorso Two words: ADAM FRANCE. Last year @rachelcastleandthings played the role of 'friendship Cupid' and BFFL match made two Gen Ys - me and @france_pants. Who was this France Pants?! Did he wear pants of red, white and blue?! We met at TDFOH Sydney and it was on. Fran is my NEW KID ON THE BLOG on @thedesignfiles and is actually a creative g.e.n.i.u.s - working as an art director, film maker, illustrator, graphic designer or as he puts it 'creative handyman'. He professes to starting each work day in bed under CASTLE bedding, an image too good I forced him to recreate it for our shoot which I'm now declaring the best TDF portrait ever. Full post on thedesignfiles.net today with photos by @rachelkara1. #sydneydreamteam #kingofbastilleday 1w

lisamariecorso DISCLAIMER: I don't always exploit my Nonna, just sometimes, like here when we forced her to wash some greens and be photographed for today's @thedesignfiles TASTY TUESDAY. FACT: My Nonna got stopped in the street last week after her TDF debut, pretty sure that makes her Italy's second biggest celeb after Sophia Loren. Just sayin'. 2w

lisamariecorso It's TASTY TUESDAY time again - this week it's Nonna Corso's antipasto with melanzane (fried eggplant), roasted peppers and rapini or the ultimate SNACK STATION. Or in Italian layman's terms: another excuse to eat. Rapini is one of my all time fave Nonna sides, I'm sure if Gwyneth Paltrow knew about it she'd dub it the new kale on GOOP by next week. RECIPE UP NOW on thedesignfiles.net with photos by @evegwilson and styling by @thedesignfiles and assistance by @natturnbull. 2w

lisamariecorso Okay, really, very deeply obsessed with a few things this Monday work day: Listening to the Les Mis soundtrack in the office while the boss (@thedesignfiles) is away, it's amazing what a revolutionary tune can do for productivity levels. Eating miso soup for lunch. AND obsessing over @madeline_kidd 's hypnotic work on TDF today, after visiting her studio last week I've been fan girling non stop. Her show opens at @dainesinger this Wednesday. Pics by @evegwilson #obsessedwithobsessing 2w

lisamariecorso I always wanted to wear gloves in my grown up profession, unfortunately I didn't have the stomach to become a vet or the fine motor skills to become a surgeon, so the only time I can use the white glove metaphor at work is when I'm peddling art for @thedesignfiles TDF COLLECT which opened last night. I also like to dress to match exhibition walls, and keep it real by drinking out of the same Toy Story mug I've had since 1997. Our latest exhibition is with the amazing @_laura_jones_ and is open today until 9 July at 87 Albert St, Brunswick. Come visit y'all 3w

lisamariecorso Last night I saw Les Miserables aka my all time fave musical at Her Majesty's Theatre (or The Maj for musical nerds) thanks to @christinaathers at Tourism Vic. I experienced SO. MANY. EMOTIONS. I felt like Fantine with so much love to give. Then I felt like Cossette, vulnerable with eyes full of hope. Then I felt like Marius, with a revolutionary spirit that I was seeing a musical that wasn't GLEE on a week night. Then I felt like Thenardier, when I was drinking celebratory champagne during second act. Then I felt like Jean Valjean, and just wanted a piece of bread. So yeah, basically it was AMAZING. In the totalitarian and authoritarian words of Javert 'Go see it'. 3w

lisamariecorso To dough or nut to be that is the question? If Shakespeare endorses it then it's totally acceptable to eat half a dozen donuts between 2 people, right? Imagine a 2014 retelling of Hamlet: Set against a Brunswick backdrop, Hamlet and Claudius fight to the bitter death, not for the throne or to avenge a father's death, but for a dozen of these bad boys from @alldaydonuts and a filtered coffee. Coming to SparkNotes real soon... 3w

lisamariecorso Sorry to spam but also need to share this pic @evegwilson snapped at my Nonna's house on today's Tasty Tuesday shoot. A study in the true makings of 'a legit wog mantel' or what I'm dubbing a future set from 'Wes Anderson visits the Vatican'. 3w

lisamariecorso SAYYYY WHAAAT?! @Thedesignfiles' Tasty Tuesday just went live and I'm this month's contributor via the wisdom of the original NONNA CORSO. Bringing you flavours from The Old Country. Some stereotypes in this world are so accurate you can’t ignore them. One of them is the whole ‘offending your Nonna if you don’t accept whatever food she is offering’ thing. She will take it personally. The fact is, an Italian Nonna will almost always over cater (it is an Italian’s worst nightmare to under cater). Example – you go over to her house for a casual family dinner for five. She cooks for twenty. At first I thought perhaps my Nonna was just bad at maths, but I have seen this woman calculate percentages on anything marked ‘sale’ faster than Rainman.
First up: Pasta with meatballs. TDF dream team effort for this series with photos by @evegwilson and styling by Lucy / styling assistance by my gal @natturnbull - check the whole caboodle at: THEDESIGNFILES.NET

lisamariecorso 2 SLEEPS TO GO TO TDF COLLECT LAURA JONES EDITION. If there's one thing I love in life it's a countdown. A countdown for EVERY occasion or non occasion. From the imminent arrival of a new baby to the last 10 seconds of a microwave orbiting while heating up soup. Just play Europe's 'Final Countdown' in your head for a truly epic experience. I swear when that microwave dings on 0 seconds you'll feel so satisfied, a feeling comparable to Sir Ernest Shackleton conquering Mt Everest I assure you. This is how I'm feeling now as @_laura_jones_ exhibition 'SHADOW AND SOUL' opens at @thedesignfiles TDF COLLECT this Thursday 3 July, 6-8pm at 87 Albert St, Brunswick. For all presales email lisa@thedesignfiles.net . See y'all there 3w

lisamariecorso Yo listen up here's a story, about a little guy that lives in a blue world. And all day and all night and everything he sees is just blue like him inside and outside. It's obvious Eiffel 65 wrote these lyrics about @xlucasgrogan, and here he is standing next to his latest work in blue wearing only blue when I gatecrashed his studio last night. The cast of Avatar wishes they could wear blue so well. 4w
