Hi. I’m Scarlett.
Thank you for stopping by.

    Now that you’re here you would probably like to hear something about me and my obsession with food. My name is Scarlett and I live in Zurich, Switzerland (really one of the best places ever). My professional life takes place in Advertising Marketing. Five years ago, I started this blog. In the meantime, hundreds of recipes – from salads to desserts and back – later, I found a balance between my “proper” (read: paid) job in marketing and my passion, cooking, entertaining, styling dishes, taking pictures and blogging. F&F has become my primary source of Inspiration and creative outlet alike. And, as Rumi put it:

     

    When you do something from your soul, other people really dig that shit.

    Among the things that inspire me are: foggy mornings (fall is the best season), tea time (with scones, naturally), flea markets, flower shopping, stripes, gathering things in the woods (like woordruff or wild garlic), hotel beds with crisp white cotton sheets and of course food, glorious food. I believe that food should mostly be home made, locally sourced whenever possible and seasonal. I believe in simple, family-style meals, served directly at the table, out of big, comfy bowls. I’m dreaming of my own garden, with abundance of home-grown cucumbers, watermelon radishes and brussels sprouts. Oddly shaped or colored vegs are my weakness. You will find me browsing the farmers’ market on the hunt for the latest warty pumpkins or wobbly, two-legged carrots. I live by the mantra “honest food for every day”.

    In general, I think it’s safe to say that cooking fulfills me because you always end up having a product, a result. Like a warm apple tart. Or a freshly baked Lasagna. Or a pile of cookies (if you don’t accidentally end up eating all the cookie dough raw, that is. Never happened, of course, I just mean it’s a possibility, for those with no will-power, yeah). Last but not least, this site is called ‘fork & flower’ for a reason: food brings together people, and it’s the best thing to have a bunch of hungry mouths to feed. It’s my declared goal to make people happy with my food; because sharing is caring. And so I cook for my friends, my family, my love – and a little bit also just for myself – as much as possible and whenever time allows it.

    Behind The Scenes of F&F

    If you want to know what F&F looks like from behind the scenes, then this post is for you! There’s even a tiny trailer about my work. (Note: Once I’ve gotten over the awkwardness that is seeing yourself on film, I started to really love this little gem by Peter Bender. Cheers!

    So if you like Fork & Flower and want to get in touch, you can either contact me via eMail – hello@forkandflower.com – or through one of my social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Bloglovin’ or Pinterest. Comments and emails are always appreciated. Thank you for reading. For now, let’s go and see what’s cooking, okay?

      Ich mag ihre Website sehr, bzw ich mochte sie sehr. Das neue Layout funktioniert nur sehr mässig… zuviel Bewegung! Leider.

      Your site is terrific! Was researching Clement Bruno and his Confit of Potato with Truffles and stumbled upon your site. Thought you might enjoy this video:
