| The San Francisco Handshake |


Inspired by MGMT | The Handshake spotify:track:7gIiIdRiiK1LoN4LBCCwHp   This summer, during a fun stay in Crown Heights, Brooklyn (more about that soon on the blog!) I stretched into other parts of Brooklyn and of course checked out Williamsbourg where I had not laid foot since 2010. The whole thing changed a lot – so quickly […]

| Empanadas | 


Inspired by Kate Bush | Babooshka  So while apparently everyone from Paris and New York rushed to London –  the lucky ones who got a ticket for Kate Bush’s out of the blue come back – I took some time to go visit my brother and wife in sunny Barcelona, or El Mas Nou, to be […]

| Aubergine Rolls |


Inspired by Disco in 4 pieces | Elmore Judd (click to open on a new tab!) I find it quite sad when I go to “apéros” and all I can reach for is peanuts, chips and cheap saucisson. Saucisson (if not cheap) I can enjoy…but come on… it doesn’t take that much effort to actually come up […]

| The New Supreme’s Juicy Cocktail |


Inspired by Custom Car Crash | Calla I’ve been recently re-(re)-watching American Horror Story – Coven and one thing I cannot get tired of is Fifi’s drinking & destroying scenes. Bitch is fierce and she knows it. Although all that power doesn’t seem to get her a proper juicy (and yet pretty strong, yes…) cocktail when needed. […]

| Strawberry Sakerinha |


Inspired by Turning Japanese | The Vapors French friends, I know you love your wine ! And you should. But let’s be honest it doesn’t really get the party started as our brazilian cocktails do.  My friends are always amazed of how little effort you need to make proper cocktails. The secret is : always have ice cubes (& […]

| Cucumber Martini |


Inspired by Lights & Music (Boys Noize remix) | Cut Copy In NY I learned that every cocktail pour into a Martini glass was – almost – automatically called a “something martini” whereas to be worth the title there should be gin or vodka + dry vermouth involved. More precisely @ Mercer’s Kitchen (b/w Prince & Mercer […]

| Pinapple, Ginger & Parsley Smoothie |


Inspired by Don’t Fucking Tell Me What To Do | Robyn We’re all terrified by Sundays. That strange, anxious, inexplicable feeling of…apocalypse? Yes that’s what I’m talking about. Robyn seems to be particularly susceptible to it and it’s understandable. It can’t be easy to wake up as a Swedish pop star who has promoted her latest album […]

| Cheeseburger Spring Rolls |


Inspired by Kids in America | Kim Wilde Head Chef Doron Wong at Delicatessen in Soho, has created cheeseburger spring rolls – one of those 2008 “modern classics” according to Page Six. Doron Wong initially had them in mind for the children’s menu, but, clearly, they proved irresistible to adults and rapidly became their speciality. The words ‘cheeseburger […]

| Goat Cheese & Thyme Puff Parcels |


Inspired by Woo Hoo |’s Everyone’s off on holiday! The ones who stayed in France come back far browner than you are and the one’s that went else abroad won’t stop telling you about how wonderful their travels were like big instawhores. Don’t be jealous; just get ready to invite them over for drinks! There’s nothing […]
