What I Learned From Alice Waters

April 24, 2018

When I left university, I was torn between pursuing my career in photography or my interest in the slow food movement, in particular, introducing gardens into the school system so that the next generation would grow up able to recognize foods, understand where they came from and how to prepare them.   I was well studied on and passionate about this topic  (I get very very focused when I am interested in something) and couldn’t believe my luck when I scored…

A Delicious Valentine’s Day Idea

February 13, 2018

It is such a pleasure to Introduce Suzanne Pollak of The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits.   I attended a lunch at Suzanne’s house just over a year ago and the simple, elegant, food she gave us has lingered in my memory ever since.  When we first arrived, the house smelled of delicious cooking already and we immediately piled into her (spectacular) kitchen to watch her every skilled move.  It is always the mark of a great cook that they make…

Highlights of 2017!

January 8, 2018

Morning Bread Run!

June 14, 2017

Every morning we do a morning bread run to pick up fresh pastries and bread for the day.  The baguettes are piping hot and so fresh that they only last until the afternoon.   We always grab regular croissants and either pain au chocolate or almond croissants — so delicious!!  We love our guests to wake up to a breakfast of fresh fruit and patisseries; we didn’t quite manage to go as early as we liked every day this year but…

Breakfast in the Garden

May 31, 2017

We’ve been sleeping a bit less since we arrived due to the baby’s jetlag.  No biggie — honestly I think it will settle soon, he’s getting closer to his schedule back home and he seems to be really enjoying spending time with his young cousins.  Obviously we all feel very lucky to be here.   I take care of him for most of the night and sleep in the morning and Will takes over around 5 a.m.  which means that…
