Three things you NEED to know & TALK TO ME
SHOP ONLINE AT OTTOLENGHI That’s right – world-wide. Shop for seriously decadent ingredients and products like black garlic, pomegranate molasses and halva with cocoa, and have delivered right to your door. There are some items that are not available to certain countries, although I am thrilled to say that Ottolenghi Granola has an Australian passport! Breakfast is looking up. They also do the most wonderful hampers – a great Christmas option for far-flung rels. Salivate at www.ottolenghi.co.uk
READ ‘THE ENGAGEMENTS’ by J Courtney Sullivan – it is THE buzz book of the mo. A delicious novel that tells the story of an engagement ring that is lost, found and stolen over the course of a century, and the four very different marriages it plays a key role in. So good. Grab your copy here.
WEAR PRISM ESPADRILLES Former model and fashion journo Anna Laub founded her label Prism in 2009. She turns out chic specs, beautifully-cut swimsuits and these very cool espadrilles. They sport a leather sole, slight wedge heel and elastic upper for a super-close fit. They only come in whole sizes, so take a size down if you are a halfy. Like Michelle Williams (above) my money is on the leopard-print; but then I’m rather partial to a little cat. Pick up your pair here.
And now… in the name of research, I would love your feedback on the following questions – only when you have a free moment (!). Just as brief as you have time for. I would absolutely appreciate it.
Thank you as always, and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for a little midday pick-me-up. I love ONJ almost as much as I love your input.
What do you cook when you have exactly three minutes to make a meal?
What is your guilty pleasure?
What do you cook when you are miserable?
And now a little thank you for your secret Modern Mother intel.
