These past weeks have been a lesson in so many things… Self-control and patience, mainly. But also, how to unwind after a very stressful day. How to not take things personally. How to be gentle. And also (unnecessarily) how to trouble shoot. The lesson I’ve learned is: there is no such thing as a perfectContinue reading
When I think of my last proper (read: longer than a weekend, backpacking and free like a bird king of) travels, I think of 2003 (you guys!) when I travelled to Thailand. It was so fabulous! Busy Bangkok and beautiful beaches. And the food… OMG! Da best. Thailand got me forever hooked on coconut, curries,Continue reading
Loves! In the depth of everyday life that’s occasionally eating me up (…), I have a mini breaking news. I’m going to do a boot camp! Starting Monday. And for 11 (eleven) weeks, every day of the work week. Isn’t this the coolest? And… uhm, crazy? Yes, I’m shitscared. But hey: you only live once.
I love breakfast. And though I’m not a brunch person, I think breakfast is a good time to invite people over and to come together for an informal, healthy, strengthening meal to kick off a happy day. Easter around here is made for brunching, people go all out on the display, featuring Zopf and eggsContinue reading
Do you know that yearning for spring sensation…? I’m still very happy about the snow (on the mountain peaks, mainly, where I plan on going skiing next weekend again, ha). But at the moment, all I want is fresh greens and soft flowers. Blooming nature! Young sprouts! Daffodils! Peter Rabbit! And peas, wild garlic, herbs, asaparagus,Continue reading

Simple pleasures, simple processes, simple ingredients, simple life. The principle makes sense in many aspects of life (I can’t think of oneContinue reading
Happy New Year & welcome, 2016! May it be a year filled with light, love and lots of good food for you. They say you can make new year’s wishes until the 6th in Switzerland, so I guess I’m still on schedule. We celebrated NYE with a couple of friends in our home with aContinue reading

"People who love to eat are always the best people."
As introduced to you some time back, I had the honor and the pleasure to work with Kuoni on my favorite drinks for an “elsewhere” inspired Cocktail Hour. You already saw and maybe tried the Peaches & Roses Bellini, which is one of the best treats whenever the occasion arises to host a fabulous brunch! So simple to stir together, too,Continue reading
Hello and welcome on F&F! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Scarlett and I love to elevate the everyday with honest, simple food. Recently, a baby (born in December 16) was also thrown into the mix. Please excuse my mom rambles already, thank you. I love to take you on journey through my life! See what I've been cooking, where we've been eating or are going for a stroll. And for yet more inspiration follow along my adventures on Social Media:
