Around this time every year, as the days grow colder and darker, I find myself craving richer, more comforting meals – the kind of meals that sit on the stovetop all day, or bake for hours in a warm oven. For me, a cozy night in by the fire just would not be the same […]
Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting the lovely Krissy O’Shea of Cottage Farm at my house in NY for a holiday-inspired collaboration. Over an inspirational and fun-filled two days, we put together a cozy, inviting scene complete with a collection of recipes fit for an intimate holiday gathering. Krissy and I initially connected […]
I love pasta – making it, eating it, all of it. The therapeutic act of kneading the dough balances me, the comfort of eating it soothes me. If I’ve had a bad day, sit me down with a steaming bowl of pasta and a glass of red wine and I could forget all about it. […]
Hi all. I’m still working on those Mallorca photos to share with you, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a recipe inspired from our travels. If I’m being honest, food determines (more than anything else) where Henry and I travel. One of the first things we research before visiting a new place is the restaurant-scene in the area – it gives us an idea of the genre of food a certain region offers. To us, there is no better way to experience a place – its people, its culture, its history – than through its food. That said, it wasn’t a surprise to either of us when we simultaneously suggested to each other that we should visit the Mediterranean for our most recent vacation. We both are major seafood lovers, and still talk about the fresh squid we enjoyed in Positano over our honeymoon there three years ago.
Our trip to Mallorca was a bit more spontaneous and unplanned than our usual adventures. After so much time spent working on our house, we both just needed a purely relaxed vacation – a time to chill on the beach without itineraries or obligations. We didn’t make any restaurant reservations, and we chose to stay in one of the most secluded areas of the island. It proved to be paradise.
