squid ink pasta

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.

I’m hoping to put together a post soon to share some photos and recap our adventures – stay tuned.

black futsu squash + turmeric soup

It’s still feeling a lot like summer here in NY, but the date on the calendar has me longing for cozy sweaters and nights curled up on the couch with a warm bowl of soup. So, when our latest farm share delivery came with two beautiful black futsu squash on Tuesday, I couldn’t resist the urge any longer. I had to make soup … 80 degrees and all.
