Eclaire Tarte with Strawberries

Eclaire Tarte with Strawberries

If one Credo has proven to be a good one in my life, it’s to strive for semi-perfect. Seeking perfection isn’t a virtue, instead, it steals a lot of time. Semi-perfect is often so much less stressful and thus more healthy and more efficient, too. It’s a lesson i’m still learning, as i’m often losing...

F&F Behind The Scenes

F&F Behind The Scenes

  Update! Since this post from last summer – where the F&F empire *chuckle* was documented in pictures and even a little trailer – offers a pretty good view of F&F and my work behind the scenes, I figured you might like to see it gain. What with the new and shiny (or so I’d like...

“plenty more”, courtesy of ottolenghi

my fondness for ottolenghi is immense. i’ve cooked his dishes, i’ve loved every single one. i’ve eaten at his various places in london, the food having gone through my dreams. so, when i heard it through the grapevine that he’s out with a new cookbook by fall, i couldn’t believe my luck (remember me being...

cookbook review: bite by bite

the cutest (and also slightly intimidating) little party food cookbook: peter callahan’s bite by bite features tiny, artful nibbles for all kinds of parties – or simply to treat yourself. what’s not to love about mini pancakes or exquisite, bite-sized sliders…? it doesn’t surprise that callahan is (apparently) the party and wedding planner in all...

something blue

a friend of mine is getting married on saturday. of course, we didn’t miss the hens’ celebration part. i thought it would be cute to give a bride something blue in advance, so i made this little bouquet consisting of dark blue anemones, purple freesia and light blue muscari. arranged in a ball (as far...
