Currently reading: Robert Musil’s The Man Without Qualities (Part 1) to a plate of peach, apple and almonds. Mama bought me the tea from no place but the Cantata Coffee Company; it’s hibiscus-based, with actual dried bits (instead of ground tea leaves) of apple, orange, carrot, rose, buckthorn, sunflower petals, rhubarb and vanilla.
Good morning y’all, and sorry for the radio silence. Things have been hectic lately, and now I have two – or even three – months in front of me of holiday, and am already absolutely bored out of my wits. What I need is a project, a sort of daily mission that transgresses the daily routine of reading, exercise, job applications (for those who don’t know, I am planning on starting a career in HR), and sleep – and I think I’ve just found it.
Two Months of Brunching.
That is literally it. Anyone who knows me knows that I am literally the world’s greatest food enthusiast, brunch being my favourite meal (ever). And so, for the next few months I will try to post a daily brunch here (not just bogging down my Instagram feed), with ingredients, location, and other ongoing fun activities (like reading the Horse & Hound over breakfast tea, or prepping for the morning swim – surprise surprise, in ten days I am off to Greece!).
So kids, enjoy my small creative output, and always feel free to ask about anything you come across. Here is a lovely Greek breakfast from last summer, with a fine matching koulouri; 0% fat Greek yog, fresh mint leaves (off the homegrown plant), a handful of almonds and a peach. Devoured in front of a spectacular Aegean sunrise over Paros.
