| 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 […]


| Lemon Tart |

Inspired by Woodlock | Lemons If I had to choose, the Brazilian in me imposes it, I would always choose limes over lemons. Nevertheless there are 3 reasons why lemons won a special place in my heart lately : I recently stumbled upon a greatest hits clip from Liz Lemon, a hero. I loved that show […]


| Raspberry Tart |

Inspired by Black Moth Super Rainbow | Raspberry Dawn Making tarts, pies and tartelettes is probably my favorite thing to do in the kitchen. It’s very easy to make, and it totally makes the difference when the crust is home made (vs. buying a ready to use one) and with 2-3 tricks we can have wonderful results! Take […]


| Spaghetti alla Puttanesca |

Inspired by Paint it Black | Rolling Stones Coming from a 100% italian family, while growing up I experienced recipes coming from all parts of Italy. One of my favorite is the “alla puttanesca”. The story behind the name is simple : this is the recipe once used by neapolitan prostitutes to attract clients – thanks […]


| Double Chocolate Muffins |

Inspired by Chocolate (Oli Slack Remix) | The 1975 When I was a student at Sciences Po Lille I had a muffin-obsessed phase. I had decided that I would master THE muffin recipe and nothing would stop me. And it worked…I behaved as a crazy man baking something like 250 muffins total in two weeks…which […]


| Green Asparagus Quiche |

Inspired by Saturne (Remix) | Freaky Little Things Plain quiches (with only the traditional “appareil à crème prise”) are a like Saturn withouth Youan’s remix, boring…! The Freaky Little Things were saved by him (and thanks to him were featured on i-D mag‘s SoundCloud playlist)…me… I was saved by beautiful green aspargus. This is totally the season and we see them everywhere, […]


| Dark Chocolate Almond Cake |

  Inspired by All I Want | Bob Moses All everyone wants, really… is a good  Dark Chocolate Cake, isn’t it? One bite can instantaneously change your mood from wanting to hurt cute little animals to feeling happier than Lucy (my favorite YouTube star baby) who understands exactly how I feel about desserts, and food generally.  My good friend – & muse […]

| Strawberry Soup, Mascarpone-Vanilla Cream |

Inspired by Fall in Love (Figgy Remix) | Phantogram I came across this recipe when I went to a dining experience @ The Office, the latest underground table d’hôte that Paris has to offer. It’s an incredibly easy and delicious recipe with which I totally fell in love with. It really reminds me of a strawberry […]

| Spinach & Sausage Rigatoni |

Inspired by Jerk Ribs | Kelis If you were in Paris yesterday, I do hope you went to see Kelis, as she did an amazing concert @ La Gaîté Lyrique ! These past days I spent a lot of time listening to FOOD on repeat, and for those who haven’t heard it, I really do recommend it. I […]

| Normand Caramel Apple Pie |

Inspired by Caramel | Suzanne Vega My addiction to apple pies began in 1996 when I went to the US for the first time. They aren’t really popular in Brazil so imagine a (fat) kid surrounded by those warm nice sweet pastry pies for the first time… I would have them for breakfast, lunch and diner […]

| Dark Chocolate Mini Cakes |

Inspired by Can’t Get Used To Those | Dimlite (click to open on a new tab!) Easter is gone. But all that chocolate is still around isn’t it? Even though you probably went a bit crazy and blamed it on the magic bunny… there is a limit to how much chocolate you can eat it like […]

| Spinach Egg Parmesan Pizza |

Inspired by Rumore | Raffaela Carra Two years ago, a good friend gave me this amazing cook book as my birthday gift. Polpo (the book) is not only a beautiful edited cook book but precious object itself. And the recipes you’ll find inside are really cool and easy to make! Lately I’ve been working a lot with it… trying some […]

| Apple Strawberry Cinnamon Crumble |

Inspired by Dark & Stormy | Hot Chip My favorite recipes are those that you can create with whatever is left in your cupboards and in your fridge. It’s often time at 2 am coming back from a party when I find myself face to face to starving friends that I try to come up with […]

| Caramelized Pear Pie |

Inspired by Melt (Zimmer Remix) | Kamp! Have you ever gone crazy trying to cook a caramel based recipe where, out of the blue, everything went wrong, it burns and suddenly all hell broke loose? Me, yes! It took me some time to master it (the secret : a thermometer!) but after a few experiences a […]


| 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. […]

| Chèvre, Grape & Walnut Bruschetta |

Inspired by La Prima Estate – Erlend Øye Ok so Paris is actually sunny ! I’m still convinced we will freeze again before truly enjoying sunlight half-naked in the streets. But you cannot avoid it – and why should you? – : last weekend everyone was out in drinking at terrasses, rolling in the grass or even taking […]


| 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 (& […]


| Honey Roasted Camembert |

Inspired by Mountain Crave | Anna von Hausswolff If you are currently hanging in Paris you must be pleased with the gentle weather, perhaps you didn’t even got out your prettiest winter furs.  Well… if I were you I would be cautious cause Mother Nature is beautiful but vengeful. I personally predict an evil other-side-of-the-Wall months […]


| Chocolate & Passion Fruit Mousse |

Inspired by Old Love / New Love – Twin Shadow In Brazil we drink, eat and live out of passion fruit…it’s everywhere and it’s tasty & juicy ! I’ve always loved it since I was a child… be it as juice, jam  or – of course – some sort of crazy sweet (welcome to Brazil!) dessert. Sadly, […]


| Caramelized Puffs |

Inspired by Royals | Lorde Want a little bit of general truth? It’s fucking freezing. Want some more? Everybody likes cream puffs, and they are easy to make! So yes, it’s simple, whenever you come home pissed off, caught in a wintery depression you can either go down and eat shit or you can take care of […]


| Zucchini Bread |

Inspired by Steal My Sunshine | LEN Me, we stole my sunshine. But It’s not because my Summer break, in an almost snowy Brazil around 5°, sucked that you – happy in the European sun – can’t have an urge to prepare a easy recipe to take to the beach, to a garden, a park or any […]


| Watermelon Gaspacho |

Inspired by Plage | Crystal Fighters Today it’s the 21st of june. It’s officially Summer. Only… the time to roll around on sand, attack that pile of books dominating your bedroom and eating not 5 but 20 fruits and vegetables per day hasn’t quite arrived yet. The beach. Perhaps it’s not for tomorrow but we can […]


| 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 […]


| Eton Mess |

Inspired by Strawberry Fields Forever (cover)| The Beatles As soon as the sun makes it appearance during winter after a long absence some start getting excited and see spring on the corner. Calm down : we still have to survive through february and march! Nevertheless, I don’t wanna be a party pooper. I just came back from […]

poulet paprika

| Paprika Chicken & Green Curry Veggies |

Inspired by Aazma | Luck Soundtrack After a painful adventure in India during the Summer of 2009 I kept away, until today, from any food having the slightest touch of indian tradition. This being said, we’re starting a new year. 2001 is by the way, the year of happiness I’m telling you ! For that reason, […]


| Passionbread men |

Inspired by La Redécouverte | Yann Tiersen Gingerbread Men are for sure delicious but pretty boring. As the holidays approach we find them everywhere we go… I had this idea of rediscovering this holiday classic improvising with daring ingredients : try them out without spices but with passion fruit instead !


| Carrot Cake, Chocolate Sauce & Lime Zests |

Inspired by At Home | Crystal Fighters Carrot cakes are pretty common in Brasil with one huge difference compared to the anglo-saxon version : ours is better – always served with a thin chocolat sauce on top. My opinion is naturally biased since it’s linked to childhood memories…but today still each time I go back I […]


| Bread Pudding |

Inspired by Te Devoro | Djavan This secret (not for long) recipe of my grand-mother is, as we say it in Brazil, a true “poor’s desert”. Between us it’s a crazy love story and like Djavan – as kitch as he can be – I devour it when it looks at me. Easy to make and quite cheap, it’s […]


| Dainty Strawberry Tartlets |

Inspired by (Tapping) The Source | Cocosuma Unfortunately the cyclical structure of our little lives means we’re not always on top form. Are we susceptible to highs and lows? Without a doubt. The good news is that if you’re feeling down, here are two things which are sure to help you spring back: Cocosuma (particularly their 2001 […]


| 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 […]


| Zucchini-Tomato-Chèvre Pie |

Inspired by Arcade Fire | Sprawl II After eating it several times, created by the hands of a very good friend of mine, I baked it so many times that this pie became one of my common recipes. It’s super good and super easy to make and most often we already have everything we need somewhere in […]


| 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 […]


| Sea Bream Roasted with Cumin |

Inspired by Open Sea Theme – The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Soundtrack (click to open on a new tab!) The Life Aquatic with Steve Zizzou is absolutely amazing. Plunged into a completely out of sync universe, you can really enjoy a story, which, whilst it is moving, doesn’t fail to deliver on humour. I really enjoyed the […]

| Double Chocolat & Raspberries Fondant |

Inspired by Over and Over | Hot Chip This recipe is the result of many failed attempts at that traditional “6 pack Summer Project”. You’ll soon understand why. We’ve all tried many different kinds of gooey fondants – some really are melt in the middle ones, others are just brownies disguised by a fancy name. However […]


| Brigadeiros (do Brasil) |

Inspired by Brasileirinho | Ramilson Maia Remix They’re actually just called brigadeiros, but I know how much you love (& we brazilians hate) saying “do brasioou”. Let’s delve into the history of the brigadeiro whilst listening to the drum and bass version of the great classic Brasileirinho remixed by Ramilson Maia.  According to legend several versions exist but everything seems to […]


| 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 […]


| Extra Virgin NYC Style Baked Eggs |

Inspired by In Your Eyes | Kylie Minogue  In 2009 I spent 8 months living in New York. When I arrived a very good friend of mine introduced me to Extra Virgin, a pretty little restaurant in Greenwich Village. Following the discovery I developed a real obsession with eggs baked in the oven. Not only did […]


| Late Summer Salad |

Inspired by Antenna | Bonobo It’s not yet completely grey or raining all the time yet. It’s still OK to sit at a terrace or, even better, to make the most of your own or your friends’ terraces. Great. Now here’s a dish which is very easy to make, inexpensive and will be perfect for the last […]
