+ From China to Texas

It doesn’t matter really where you perambulate in this world, one can always find a culture of tea drinking can’t you? Some are content with electric kettles, styrofoam cups, and a tea bag swimming about. Others hold to bowing over a cup and waiting patiently for tea leaves to softly whisper their drinkable status into...

+ Kinfolk Volume Seven

NO. SEVEN is here, just in time to compliment my morning coffee – a perfect duo as the opening act to the weekend. And this one even promises ice creams! I’ll keep this one brief as a teaser for the latest issue of Kinfolk: A Guide For Small Gathering. Stay informed here for a lengthier...
+ Off to the Beach

+ Off to the Beach

What does one pack for a beach outing? This is a question most humans don’t ponder over. But for those non-beachers like myself, here’s a lineup of ridiculous necessities you might consider. + A heavy duty canvas rucksack + A big knife for when pirates show up. One can either join them or repel them...
+ VOIX: Jason Bruen

+ VOIX: Jason Bruen

Jason Bruen – owner of Reserve Supply Company – is busy laying out new stock when I walk through the door. Shaking hands, I leave him to sort things out while I make an inspection of the other-worldly interior. Other-wordly that is, to Houston. Upon return, I make a remark about the unique character of...
+ It's a Risotto Night

+ It’s a Risotto Night

This one’s got a long name: MUSHROOM and GRAPEFRUIT ZEST RISOTTO with rosemary sweet potatoes and an acorn squash purée (topped with seared scallops). Refer to above image for ingredients. You’ll definitely need an entire bottle of white wine for this. Or if you can manage, a bottle of rosé from Provence. I also HIGHLY...

+ Going Scandinavian at KINFOLK

It seems like just a week back that I had returned from London with memories of Speakeasy Espresso, talking beer crafting with Evin O’Riordain of The Kernel Brewery, and exchanging witty banter with the VW+BS team. I then found myself in Berlin drinking prosecco in the company of fashionables in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tent....

+ VOIX: Evin O’Riordain

“Excuse me, I’m looking for Dockley Road Industrial Estate, Arch 11?” It’s the exhausted drooping eyes and permanent frowns set into the chiselled haggard faces of manual labourers that silently size me up. They pause to drag on their smokes, and in unison raise their fingers in theatrically slow motion to point my way in...
+ A Heart In New York

+ A Heart In New York

Most of you won’t recall the words to A Heart In New York. But since the day I heard it off a tape deck seated in the back seat of a black 4runner returning from a ski trip in the middle of the night…those words have never left my memory. Twenty years later after that...
+ Haunting Brooklyn

+ Haunting Brooklyn

Everything is orange. From the lights to the whiskeys glowing softly behind the bar, to the orange flowers arranged on the bar corner. Orange and warm. Or perhaps it’s simply the heat off the radiator beside which I sit, sipping rosemary gimlets with Art Director Suvi Haering. Outside, Berlin bites furiously at the ankles of...

+ New York CITY

Built up and built down, the skyline of this city never stays the same
+ The Williamsburg Hipster

+ The Williamsburg Hipster

It didn’t take long; Within twenty-four hours of returning to Brooklyn after a three year hiatus, I only had to traverse the length of half a block from south third to south second on Bedford Avenue on a Friday morning to have The Williamsburg Hipster present itself in my route. I do concur, it looks...
+ Gather Journal

+ Gather Journal

From the racks of Do You Read Me?, it was Gather Journal asking to be plucked this time. Though meant as a gift, I couldn’t help but photograph the pages created by Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo. It brings together concise recipes with delicious imageries and instills the inspiration to wine and dine in the...
