on friday...


Lately I am captivated by the thought of living life slowly, with simplicity and intention. So when this book arrived at the shop yesterday, I couldn't resist!

Skye Gyngell writes so beautifully about cooking with the seasons, her words and recipes are an inspiration. And it's the little details that I love about this book... it's perfect size, the matte finish of the pages, the three ribbon page markers (yes three!), the extraordinary photos and the fact that it looks so wonderful on our dining table with my Shannon Garson bowls...


A year in my kitchen by Skye Gyngell and photography by Jason Lowe is published by Quadrille (isbn184400337x)

I checked the link and those bowls are so pretty. Love the colour.

I lile my life to be slow too. I think our life is much slower than most people though. Trying to make lots more things by ourselves include making clothes and vegetables. It takes time but it is worth and the whole process is a wonderful experience. I hope you enjoy the book and good that you woule make from it. Happy weekend!

That book looks really lovely. I'd love to live life a bit slower too although I'm not sure it's going to be possible while living in London. Maybe one day.

I've been lusting after this book. Did you know that Skye Gyngnell writes a regular column in "Delicious" magazine?

Thanks for the lovely mention!

If you like her book, you should have a look at Tessa Kiros' books, too. Beautiful photography and stories, delicious recipe...
