pictures by Kate / Simple Village Girl / Neëst Back from four wonderful days in the country with a wonderful family that’s not mine and that I love so much ! Jane Austen and tea and lemon curd and more tea and pompe à la tome and ficelle and just good meals, muddy walks, golden sunny warm days and rainy foggy freezing days, and the never-failing ceramic water-bottle. A VERY...
A tasmanian christmas party at Island Menu
Homemade cloud oreos, grapefruit for breakfast. In the end, I prefer the cookies without filling (I left quite a few alone). They’re really good but a bit too complicated to make for simple cookies. I’ll keep the cocoa powder-salt-and-pepper combination though, with a more basic cookie recipe. (The filled ones are still very good !)
This is what my day looked like.
Winter ice cream by Rebekka. I very much agree with her !

It’s sunday morning 11 a.m., and so far I’ve baked a puffy hazelnut cake, a lemon cake shaped as the Mont-Blanc (I’ll make a lemon glaze later) and 40 scones. I’m not just hungry, it’s my mom’s birthday. I also have some chocolate caramels left that I made yesterday with my grandmother’s secret recipe. I’ll make gougères a little later.
Views from my friend Claire’s place.
Chinese pear yesterday morning, lemon and ginger infusion this morning. It a very dark, grey, rainy morning. Good morning, still ! Wrong ! It’s mostly raining cats and dogs and whatever else.
Lunch with Claire on thursday.
Fishes dancing at home.
It was such a lovely late birthday brunch ! + the new Herriott Grace website launched yesterday and it looks beautiful.
Corners of my home right now. (featuring my new beautiful alphabet silkscreen printed by my friend Camille - who also made these and this and took these, just saying - and a gift wrap made out of photo paper and stickers that I couldn’t be parted with)

More shots of the wonderful home at LeDansLa…
Endive&gruyère flatbread at The Yellow House… I’m not that big on endives because of the bitterness, but I would absolutely try this one !
Loving these pictures by Sheena ! It was a beautiful weekend. We saw four movies, drank lots of tea, went to the flower market in the rain, made a Christmas wreath for the first time ever, bought frames, had giant caramelized chouquettes, pasta with duck, and hazelnut&clementine loaf, all very season-appropriate. And the sun is out today, AND it’s getting colder,...
Ooooh, Lena Corwin’s home… Preserving lemons at The Dog’s Breakfast Winter veggies look out of a fairytale at Hungry Ghost food + travel ! + It’s good to be home after a long day at work…
Can I please do the same ?? Loving these pictures by Anna.
This is quite a cool New York apartment ! (via Joanna)
