Today’s food for thought is all about pretty eggs, floral ice cubes, the future of Hollywood and the charm of college radio.

I’ve been at home for the last few days and I could not be happier; things are both relaxed and very stressed, loving and intense, and all around overwhelming. I’ve been spending my time mostly with my sister, over intense workout sessions and even more intense food and cooking sessions. The weekend will be spent over freshly baked pastries, homemade fish and chips, prep for a masquerade ball and lots of time out in the sun. Have a sunny weekend y’all! [READ MORE]

Food for thought: the power of books and the complexities of gender, the best (cheesy) news and how to cook that steak just right.

This past week was very cold, very intense and quite surprisingly satisfying. Between lunch and dinner with friends, making plans for the blog and prepping for a quick trip back home, the days flew past me with almost enchanted speed. The weekend will hopefully be similarly exciting, spent with my special ladies (I made them these) and in the kitchen, cooking up a few delicious things for y’all here. [READ MORE]

This week’s Food for Thought is all about the very simple secret behind a healthy diet, a terrific old fashioned new film, supporting refugees and surviving London.

Happy Friday y’all! I’ve enjoyed this past week quite a bit, with all its hustle and bustle. There was a lot of work to be done for the blog, which was both painful at times (one part of me is a giant sloth), and super inspiring (another part of me is a Marvel character). In the midst of it all, I managed to watch the 13th (which kinda kept me up for the better part of a couple nights), spent roughly two hours in Whole Foods looking at herbs and chocolate bars and trying to come up with a plan to try said chocolates without paying (no luck) and played around with V-Day recipe ideas (those damn chocolates!). The weekend ahead will be spend mostly in East London, mostly with friends and will also, probably, include some healthy food (at the Fare Healthy Festival). Have a great one! [READ MORE]

On today’s food for thought: coffee’s necessity, Mary Poppin’s charms, the absurdity of clean eating and the beauty of Dutch babies for breakfast.

Quinoa, fresh greens, radishes, avocado & 6min egg

The week has passed by quickly, but was neither very easily nor exciting. It’s super cold outside, both Mike and I are very busy and not in the best of moods and the days seem to quickly go by, but also kinda drag. On the plus side, I’ve played around with a couple hearty dishes (a chickpea curry may be coming your way soon), lots of quick plates full of fresh veggies and delicious grains and now have a new favourite banana bread. We are both looking forward to the weekend, which will include a much needed date night, a friend’s birthday and, hopefully, lots of lounging in bed. Have a great weekend, y’all! [READ MORE]

Weekend brunch, genius recipes, inspiring books, series and music, the best way to fight a cold and my favourite food-related advice.

This week went by in a flash. It was mostly sunny (but very cold), mostly creative and filled with some experimentation with date fudge (delicious) and protein bars (not so delicious). We have a busy weekend coming up: there will be pie making for National Pie Day, some homeware shopping (I’m loving Oliver Bonas right now), aperitivos with friends and a Sunday brunch I am really looking forward to (here are some great recommendations for the whole of UK). How’s your weekend looking? [READ MORE]

How to read a recipe

how-to-read-a-recipe

Does this sound a little patronising? It’s really not. I promise. I don’t have all the answers, I’m no authority, but I really really love a good story. And a good treasure hunt. And a good old list. Reading a recipe is not just about reading the damn thing. It’s pretty much a map of a treasure island, a map full of clues; while we’re going through it, we’ve also forming a plan, foreseeing bumps and traps and whatnot, preparing as best as we can for what we may face on our way to our much deserving treasure (aka pie/ soup/ healthy what have you).

Happy New Year! I hope y’all are back from your holiday rested, a little more laid back, a lot more inspired and ready for the new year. That’s exactly how I welcomed 2017: with zero new year’s resolutions, but a few plans and a whole lotta tasty ideas. After a holiday which was relaxed and stressful in almost equal measures and filled with love and food (also in equal measures), I’m (kinda) welcoming coming back to reality and forming a new routine . Let’s make it fun, creative and delicious- shall we? [READ MORE]

Happy Holidays!

Happy-Holidays

Christmas is just one short breath away! I literally cannot wait for the 25th and the week until the new year. Although I haven’t been feeling super festive this time around, I am still a sucker for all things Christmas and a believer in the holidays’ spirit. 2016 has been a weird one. It’s been super, fantastic and overwhelmingly beautiful (Mike’s film won a freaking Academy Award, we threw a super cool party/wedding for our family and family of friends and then went off on a dreamy Cali honeymoon); at the same time, on political, global and human-related fronts it was hard, mean, sad and overall a downright bitch of a year.
