Celebrating Food and Design

 

1. Design + Food. The Perfect Combo. 
Being Inspired and both very passionate about design and food, it is only expected and feels natural to mix it all together. 

2. Does Cooking Really Calm The Spirit?
I want to share with you that love and passion and help you create and bring something special both to yourself and your family and friends. Any where from opening you up to unique recipes, make it easy and comfortable no matter if you don't cook much or very passionate about cooking or simply looking for new ways to be inspired in your kitchen, to the presentation and process of feeling spacial in a space curated by creative object that bring that spacial touch.

3. A New Way To Spice
That is why, with all my experience of cooking and hosting I have been feeling the need and inspiration to create my signature Spice Jars. I needed A way to be happy with the presentation of how it looks in the space but also make sure that it is both efficient and will stay fresh. I understand that we all have our go to spices and storing them changes by our limitations of the space. What i wanted to have is something that i will be proud to present in my space. I will Challenge you to try a new recipe that will be companied with a spice jar and who knows you might be starting a whole collection and be really inspired to cook more:)  and bring life to the kitchen with an emphasis on design.  

4. Inspiring You
Featuring Both spice jars and storing jars (who really likes the presentation and freshness efficacy of a cereal box, rice bag or flour to be displayed?)  

Saying that, I would like to present my first Spice jar with the first recipe to follow:
