Foodie Links to inspire and delight

Although i’ve been pre-occupied of late with all the preparations that come with welcoming a new baby in to the Équilibre family, I have managed to put together some links from the ‘world of food’ that have recently caught my attention and felt worthy of sharing…

Happy reading, dreaming and cooking!

  • For those of you who enjoyed my Brooklyn Foodie Finds, you might like to peruse photographer Jennifer Causey’s latest endeavour, The Maker’s Project. She lovingly presents a series of photographs of Brooklyn based handmade and artisan products and the people behind them – what inspires them, what keeps them going and their thoughts on the city where they live and work (it includes my previously featured Mast Bros Chocolate and the Jewels of New York). Some beautiful images, insights and very clever people.
  • I’ve recently been inspired by the picnic spread (pictured above) in the October edition of Real Living Magazine, put together by the very talented Katie Quinn Davies and the clever folk behind Sydney Picnic Co. I love picnics, and am planning a special gathering with my girlfriends later next month before the new baby arrives. Stay tuned, as i’d love to share the details…
  • Food, Glorious Food! Loving this art print (pictured above) from Ellis Benson, which asks ‘What’s your favourite food moment?’ and comes in a beautiful range of colours.
  • Can you sense it? Christmas (yes, Christmas!) is in the air and it’s making me feel both excited and just a little nervous, as i’ll have my hands well and truly full in December. Perhaps i’ll resort to a little help from the lovely Rochelle Adonis. Her new christmas range looks amazing – Homemade Brandy Ice Cream sounds like a festive treat made in heaven and just perfect for our warm season.
  • Master Chef’s Julie Goodwin has recently earned my respect by refusing to sign on as a figurehead to promote weight loss giant Jenny Craig. The news first hit back in August, but more recently she has had the guts to come out and comment more directly. “The diet industry makes a lot of money feeding off people’s insecurity. If you eat everything low-cal … you are not nourishing your spirit” Julie is rightly fed up with being beaten up by the so-called ‘fat police’ for not including more ‘low fat, low cal’ ingredients in her recipes. Good on you Jules…we like your style and self assurance and the fact that you do keep fit and healthy with the help of a trainer several times per week.
  • Make the most of your travel experience by partaking in regional cooking classes on your travels through Europe… learn to make croissants in Paris, artisan cider in Nottinghamshire, tapas in Barcelona, Apple Strudel in Vienna… i’m still daydreaming!
  • Spending a good part of my childhood growing up in England, I like to think that the British Tradition (pictured above) of afternoon tea was instilled in me early. I’m looking forward to a forthcoming leisurely High Tea at the Peninsula Tea Gardens with my mums group friends – this time, without the little people, so we may even get to finish our sentences!
  • Finally, in keeping with my love of breakfast and anything remotely related to muesli, I stumbled across The Unexpected Guest. Based in Bangalow, NSW, I love the sound of their organic Granuesli which is packed with seeds, raw nuts and sweetened with Tassie honey. They also have a gluten free variety with quinoa, buckwheat puffs, amaranth, maple roasted almonds and cranberries. Most of all I love their passionate approach, which includes a mission to create extraordinarily delicious ‘breakfast experiences’ that make you want to leap out of bed and run to the table!
