What stores does Michael Chiarello visit when he travels?
Vincon in Barcelona. There are cooking stuff, design pieces. I think he’s got a great eye. I’ve known him for years. You’ll go there to see what’s new, what’s fresh. I love to buy pens when I travel. It gives you a chance to tell a story when you are writing a note in a restaurant. I think they are important reminders to buy from places that you’ve traveled. They remind you to slow down, relax in your everyday life. They help you lead a more flavorful life.
