Prefabricated foods have never appealed to Glenn. Just as on the football field he was never just content with running as far, as much and as smart as the others. He ran further, more and smarter.
In the TV studio he prefers to keep quiet to stating the obvious, what the viewers will already know. Instead he communicates what the audience wants to know and perhaps didn’t know they wanted to learn about the game. At table he has cultivated his ability to partake in what is good in life. Not exclusive, not expensive but real - and prepared with love.
Glenn says: ” I’m not a chef, but I love good food. During all my years in Italy, the Italian kitchen has been generous to me. And thanks to of all my travelling I’ve found that the Italian cuisine is my favourite. To me, it’s number one.
This is also the bottom line of the project Glenn started in 2004, when he decided to market his own brand of Italian foods in Sweden. With his ”Glenn Strömberg Collection/Collezione Italiana” he gives his old countrymen a taste of the country he fell in love with in 1984. He still lives in Bergamo, Italy, with his wife Simona, his daughters Erika, Ylenia and Giulia and their family pets. Glenn wants to grow old in Lombardy, enjoying life, not to mention the wonderful food of the region.
