Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Cream & Mango

Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Cream & Mango

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,...

Green Goddess Bowl

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.

Soft-Boiled Eggs w/ Asparagus Soldiers

Soft-Boiled Eggs w/ Asparagus Soldiers

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 eggs...

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

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,...

Pimientos de Padron

I’m all about simplification. Yes, I’m lazy, ergo I’m creative, and find ways to come up with better solutions to a problem X. And simplification is often key in life, I have found. Simple pleasures, simple processes, simple ingredients, simple life. The principle makes sense in many aspects of life (I can’t think of one...

NYE, Gravad Lax & Celery Consommé w/ Pancake Noodles

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 a...

Darlings, I am most excited to announce the new and shiny version of F&F! I’ve been working on bringing the new site to you for the past couple of weeks (and months), and today it’s as ready as it will always be to show you. You’re going to find your way around, I’m convinced. Just browse...

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,...

elsewhere Cocktail Hour: Peaches & Roses Bellini

I don’t know about you, but leisurely weekends spent going for intricate cocktails are just the best. Bonus if it’s at a nice bar (i especially like english inspired interiors or ample hotel lobbies to go with my Amaretto Sours).
