The French Cuisse


The young man behind The French Cuisse food blog has captured so beautifully my favorite part of cooking. The alchemy between the raw ingredients in their sterile prep bowls and the finished dish bubbling and golden brown in a baking dish. We all know how much time, hard work and dirty dishes exist between the two images but it’s so nice to think of it as magic instead.

Food Photography: Carl Kleiner


These pictures from the new Ikea baking cookbook Hembakat är Bäst (Homemade Is Best) are so original and inspiring. The food stylist Evelina Bratell is clearly a genius and the photographer Carl Kleiner the same.

While most popular food photography  and styling these days is warm, rustic, plebeian (plates angled onto a linen dishtowel with a decorative fork slicing through the photo,) these pictures are graphic, dynamic, modern and clean.

These are the ingredients for Princess Cake! My favorite cake in the whole world and the one my mom would pick up from an Austrian bakery in our little town every year for my birthday dinner. Fluffy layers of sponge cake smeared with tart raspberry jam and then topped with fully whipped cream. This dome shaped cake is then covered in soft almondy marzipan tinted a delicate shade of green and garnished at the pinnacle with a little pink rosette and then dusted with powdered sugar. Not sure I will ever be able to get a copy of this book though.
