Food and Travel
Yesterday I woke up to a blanket of snow, this morning it was hoarfrost. And then the sun came out. In the early morning while the light was still soft, I walked out with my camera to capture the fields and the beautiful flora.
Finding a seasonal winter salad can be hard, but I combined some of my favorite flavors and came up with a new dish. This salad is very versatile and easy to make, perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
It took a while, but I've finally found a recipe which makes light, soft and delicious scones. These are not too sweet and perfect for either breakfast or afternoon tea.
During our stay in the Engadin we were blessed with clear blue skies, snow topped mountains and perfect fall color. The larches were yellow, turning darker and more intense every day.
The snow was a surprise, but one we all enjoyed. We woke up to fresh snow every morning and spent 3 relaxing days in the small town.
It was there and then it wasn't. A few weeks ago our server crashed and four years of blog posts disappeared.
This year's short summer is coming to an end. The light has changed, and I can smell autumn in the air. Two days ago I woke up to thick fog. I thought we might not have as much to harvest this year, but there is more than I suspected.
"May I give you a surprise for your birthday?" my husband asked. "Oh yes", I thought. The last surprise he gave me for a birthday was also a lot of fun. I patiently waited until the morning of my birthday and then peeked into the envelope.
When I read that Aran of Canelle et Vanille would be teaching a food photography workshop in the Dordogne region in France this year, my heart started to pitter-patter. For a long time it had been my dream to learn from Aran and this was my chance.
