You know those deep and meaningful questions floating around online like "if you had to survive on only three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?" Well, my answer is cheese. It's always cheese. So as you can imagine, I've gotten pretty good at creating a cheese platter (or a grazing board as the cool kids might call it) over the years. Maybe it's the design background in me, maybe its the wine and cheese addict?! Whichever it is, I thought I'd share with you what I consider to be the most vital ingredients to help you create a show stopping cheese platter.
I'm so excited that we're over the hump of the Spring equinox which means the days are getting longer and the sun is coming out to play. I can just about smell those long Summer nights spent at the beach with a few beers and fish and chips. But first, Spring. And that's Summers next best thing in my book.
So as we all start to crawl out of hibernation and start thinking about doing ALL of the things with all of that energy that vitamin D brings you, let's spare a thought for our houseplants who are kinda coming out of their own kind of hibernation. They've got needs too, you guys.
Every morning I select my mug for my morning coffee/lifeline and I look forward to wrapping my hands around the tactile creation, feeling the warmth in my fingertips. My hands run along the textural contrast where the glaze meets the raw clay and I savour the moment that I take a sip of that liquid gold from a mug bursting with attention to detail.
