+ Herbs & Eggs

Waking to a cold January morning – especially with scotched brains – demands steaming coffee and something piping hot out of the oven. So I’ve decided to forensicate some baked eggs for a continuation to the previous night’s warmth and coziness of close friends, dinner, cake, red wine, and whiskey. The hardest part is always...

+ Nude Espresso, London

A reddish-brunette with tightly swept back hair sits dead centre on the long leather bench. NO, this is not about chattin her up! Her one hand holds a red felt pen. With the other, she balances her cup of double espresso and a packet of A4 editorial images. Occasionally, her left eyebrow slightly arches before...

+ after the mayhem, tel aviv

There’s an extremely tiny minority of individuals that don’t look forward to a weekend brunch. Thankfully most of us DO, and after a long night out with friends, Friday morning (in Israel, Friday is the rest of humanity’s version of Saturday) is much anticipated. The smell of burning butter and the sizzle as whipped eggs...

+ living at cafés, brussels

Every city in the EU has one of these. Where Culture pops up with their bags and their mags to see and be seen. It helps that the setting is liked by all involved but what really brings them out into the drizzly Sunday rain is the food being served; the Danesi coffee, the bread...

+ if ever in Vienna

In Paris, you go to a café. Obviously as the name suggests, they have the standard array of cheap and burnt arabica coffees. But more often than not, you meet at such establishments pour un demi after work. In the UK, you’ve got pubs. No need to explain what that’s for. In Wien, or Vienna,...

The next step to world domination is a motorcycle. VERY necessary. And what better than the classic black beauty: R75 by BMW? Digressing and incidentally, I have terrible depressive memories of Black Beauty, it should never be categorized as a child’s story. Moving on, The R75 was a World War II era motorbike, and yes...

+ breakfast at 11

Especially on a Saturday should breakfast proceed after the 11am strike. This morning, Cuisine Wrangelstrasse 5 started in for the classic scrambled eggs. Chopped paprika, onions, and mushrooms colorfully support the sans-croissant breakfast revolution.

APOLOGIES, the blog’s been dry for a few days, BUT we’ve got a whole spammage of amazing photographs to show all the way from Nice/Bagnols-en-Foret/San Remo/Fréjus/Sainte-Maxime! Fresh air, delicious food, crisp wines, and the best of companies in the south of France.

+ the morning coffee post

If you know me, then you know already knew this post was coming up. Me: a caffeine junkie of only the highest Direct Trade…stuff. So lately, I’ve taken to hand grinding my own coffee and brewing stovetop espresso. I grew up waking with the sound of coffee being ground in the mornings, so it’s rather...

Linguine Amatriciana / Vino / Espresso. A lunch classic for the Barkow Leibinger Architekten work experience. If it sounds like your lunch palette…and you, due to unfavorable and tragic circumstances, find yourself in the socially trendy and uber-chic district of Charlottenburg, make sure to check out Cantinetta, a lovely Italian gem hiding out in this...
