• The October mood board

    01. I fell in love with this pattern from Ulrika Gustafsson’s collab with Hemtex.
    02. A chandelier made of rönnbär [rowan berries]. I think I might have to make one for our kitchen table.
    03. I’ve been organising our kitchen cabinets this week and wonder how functional glass jars would be; I have a few that I refill regularly, however, the whole bag/package never fits in the jar so I end up with both a jarful and a random bag/package… Do you have any good pantry tips?
    04. Pumpkins for days.
    05. Katerina Marchenko‘s amazingly beautiful embroideries.
    06. I’ve been thinking a lot about baked apples these days. Perhaps with simple oat crumbs, or like these, with prunes, almonds and amaretto.
    07. The dream kitchen (and a blog favourite too: Babes in Boyland <3)

    Daube provençale à la Chavot

    I don’t know if I ever told you but a few months before we set off for Sweden, I spent a week-turned-half-a-year giving a hand in the kitchen at Brasserie Chavot; partly because they needed someone, mostly because I firmly intended to close my London chapter by working with chefs who had become my closest friends throughout the years, from the Capital Hotel to Brasserie ...

    Three books

    I looked down in my basket. Four small Wedgewood Avon cottage dessert bowls, in the deepest shade of blue. A white casserole with a thin blue border and ceramic cracked slightly enough to tell the wonderful story of dinners at an old pine table. An aluminium springform tin, with an opening mechanism I had never seen before; remind me to show you someday. The Phoenix ...
