I’m spoiling you with tomatoes again. You see, I’ve had a good crop and the harvest has been plentiful. After eating them mostly naked and then preserving them in various sauces, it was time to tart them up a little. Don’t tire of my tomato mania – not just yet. This tart deserves all your attention – it is so shamelessly good that anything less than your undivided attention will not do justice to it.
What’s for lunch, honey? just got a complete facelift. It’s fresh, crisp, clean and so good I am doing dances around the notebook. I got together with the extremely talented Corinna Haselmeyer of Holistic Design and since June we have been working on this space behind the scenes. What we developed over the past several weeks has been a piece of art and love.
It feels good to be back home! After over 3000 kilometers through the Normandy from Étretat to Mont Saint Michel then over to the Pays D’Auge and ending in Versailles and Paris, we are quite contended to be back home. After a little over two and half weeks of living in a RV the luxury of space is felt in every room but most of all in my kitchen. It was a sensational vacation: we hiked on steep cliffs, we relaxed under gorgeous cornflower blue skies, we swam in the ocean and we ate our weight in mussels, oysters and seafood.
Summer time usually means a lot of spontaneous entertaining and I love having friends over on the spur of the moment. Then often a time it will be something quick, easy and put together with simple ingredients not requiring too much fussing over. A tapas or mezzeh menu, barbecued meats and fish or quick roasted and moist poultry are some of the ideas I tend reach for from my repertoire.
It’s been a while! I’ve been missing around here for the past several weeks – I know but my thoughts have been here. Summer has taken control of me and all my time. While we are enjoying the long warm days and evenings, I’ve been engulfed with several projects and photo jobs that have dominated most of my time. It’s been a very interesting time around here.
