+ 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...

Pedro is cute and furry. He knows this. Given his esteemed self-regard, he sits at the head of the table. Literally ON the table. And watches and waits. For the coffee being hand ground, milk being foamed, bread toasting away, Hollandaise sauce being whipped up and drizzled atop the chicken. Breakfast of champions and Pedro...

A 2006 Chateau La Tour Margaux calls for an egregious DINNER so a “black-toed” chicken with butter-soaked rosemary stuffing was thrown into the oven while the evening witnessed aperitifs, mashed sweet potatoes, ginger carrots, and steamed cranberry sauce. But far be it for winos to restrain to one bottle so the competitor that rose to...

Excruciatingly bad coffee saved by a bag of exceptional M&Ms, KFC as the only remotely edible source of consumption, and outrages against drivers cruising less than 200kph sums up the majority of the trip from Berlin to Bruxelles. But as backs stretch in anticipation of destination, Calgary switches to Sunset and the lyrics draw two...

The sirens just heard over BBC live footage seems to mentally bring a close to an idyllic, though hard-worked, summer spent in Tel Aviv. Recently published on HiGH Magazine, I distinctly recall stepping off Allenby’s bus-roaring sidewalks, and ducking through a doorway marked by a faded yellow sign. Housed on the ground floor of a...

We all need a dash of bright yellow every once in a while, and yellow tomatoes tossed up with pasta always looks great with some fresh basilic. Has a distinct summer-ish vibe paired with a glass of 07 Crianza.

After much searching and sweaty trekking, GabrielDesigns has at long length located PORT Magazine in TLV. Solidly written articles, beautiful photography, and rich content – a prized piece to invest in. Looks fantastic on any coffee table or bookshelf (had I a coffee table or bookshelf) but definitely seems to belong in the kitchen as...

In the last four years, GabrielDesigns has seen a variety of kitchens and kitchenettes. The unmentionably worthless condition of my current one initiates a search for better conditions, and in the process, one learns to appreciates the past.

RED was the evening theme. Wild rice steamed with paprika. Then served with chopped strawberries and fresh rosemary and drizzled with a yoghurt-balsamic vinaigrette. Season with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. Full of flavor – tartness mixing with sweetness – and pairs well with a bottle of red.

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...
