BITS & PIECES | 27.04.16

This week was one of the busiest weeks I’ve had this year. I had work projects due right, left, and center, and I’ve been nursing a melancholy heart after my trip to Sri Lanka (I was so sad to come back). Despite all of the busy-ness—a welcome distraction, for which I am grateful— I managed to carve out a few quiet moments for myself to relax and recuperate. I’ve got a lot on this weekend and over the coming week, and then I’ll be switching gears into summer mode and getting ready to tak ... Read More

My birthday a couple of weeks ago saw me turn the big three-oh(!), and while it was a little bit scary, I’m enjoying being exactly where I am in life.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE A FESTIVE CHEESE PLATTER + AN INTERVIEW WITH CHEESE EXPERT FRANCOIS ROBIN

It’s the festive season, and if you’re anything like me then you’ve probably got a calendar packed full of cocktail parties to go to, and dinner parties to host. One of my go-to things to make—and I use the word “make” loosely here—is a nice, festive cheese platter. I like it because all it requires is a few moments of assembling things, and it’s stress-free. All you need is a visit to your local cheese counter, and a well-stocked pantry. And though they require little effort, when done properly cheese plat ... Read More
