White Magazine recently published the Daughters of Simone shoot we did back in April with photography by Damien Milan and art direction and styling by Anastasia Gladushchenko. It was such a great young team, hopefully we get the opportunity to work together again soon! Full credits below.

Adventures in Cooking, a blog run by the very sweet Eva, is a goldmine of gorgeous recipes and food styling. Here are two recipes of hers that use edible flowers. Check out the full article here.

Peach & Rosemary Blossom Lemonade

6 cups water

.
Combine all ingredients.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Toasted Hazelnuts and Lavender

Roasted Brussel Sprouts
1 and ½ lbs Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon brown sugar
.
Toasted Hazelnuts & Lavender
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup hazelnuts
1 teaspoon dried lavender
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
parchment paper
.
For the brussel sprouts, I tossed them with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting. While they were baking away in the oven, I toasted some hazelnuts on the stovetop and added a bit of dried lavender at the end of the cook time, giving it a good stir. Once the brussel sprouts were finished, I tossed them all together and the resulting dish was one full of flavor, texture, and a wonderfully intoxicating aroma.

I am going crazy over these incredible gold wreaths. They are from various historical periods including ancient Macedonia, Greece, Egypt, and Bulgaria.

       

Cleaning up my laptop and just came back across these old disposable photos. I love the feel of these images taken on the cheapest camera known to man. Check out more pics I took The Harris Garden (fourth pic down and one of my favourite English gardens) here.
