To me, some of the best meals are the simple one. No need to go crazy with hours and hours of cooking to put something delicious on the table and to have an amazing time. As I am completely addicted to eggs, there are often part of the party! I love them in every way. Boiled, fried, scrambled, poached, hard … I don’t care!! For breakfast, lunch, dinner or late snack … No matter … I just LOVE them! So here’s one of several ways that I cook them.
At first that recipe was for as lemon squares … But some raspberries caught my attention at the market so I decide to make lemon square in a different way. I thought they would simply look and taste fantastic as pies topped with fresh raspberries. I was right! Raspberries and lemon is such an amazing paring.
When I bought this embossed rolling pin on Etsy I was very eager to receive it! I mean, I love butter cookies! I have plenty pastry cutters to shape then according to my mood but this little thing … it seemed next level! I let you judge by yourself but to me, it really did the trick. The prettiest butter cookies I’ve ever made 😊 Oh! Did I mention that it came with a recipe? I usually don’t try the recipes found on the back of a box but I had a different feeling about this one. I was right. I didn’t change a thing and it was PERFECT! So with no further ado, here it is.
We were in San Francisco couple of weeks ago for a photoshoot. Yes, we are the luckiest one who had to shoot the entire menu of a pizzeria. You know what is the best in that kind of contract? When after the photoshoot, you can eat all the menu you photographed. HA-HA-HA I love my job so much!
Whether you’re cooking or making cocktails, for a living or as a hobby, it’s no secret that working with seasonal products makes a big difference in the quality of your recipe. For a long time now, many restaurants been offering seasonal/from farm to table menu and recently, some bars also adopted that approach. I find this very motivating. On the one hand, it’s a challenge to work with ingredients when they are in season. You have to build your inspiration around what’s available at the moment, but at the same time it gives you a direction which can help you in your creative process.
Saying the name 3 times might take me to this fantastic world … who knows??? Do you remember Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz? Knocking heels 3 times to bring you where you want. If it was that easy, I would be part of Olivia Burton’s world.
When Sefra and I announced our friends and family that we would start a blog about food and cocktails, many asked us if we would do cocktail and food pairing. Even if I think that sometimes cocktails can be great friends with food, I honestly think that wine is so much better. Bottom line, my answer to this question was “no” unless I really feel for it and guess what? Today I feel for it.
