What’s cooking my *blogships?

The end of my week last week, was consumed with all things World Cup. And while my ‘American Cousins’ were celebrating the ‘goal’ on Saturday, I was in mourning and quite appropriately came down with a 48 hour cold/flu (aka plague). That being said, its amazing how much the World Cup affects ones actions – I feel so all over the place – after a dr. appt yesterday I realised I wouldn’t make it back home in time and sprinted to the Ace Hotel to watch Italy v Paraguay…word to the locals – it’s a GREAT SPOT to watch the game, and the food ( I had a somewhat fancy grilled cheese ), was American Style Pub food hipster style.

But on to a round up of the best of last week!

I love Macaroons, my dad used to buy them a lot when I was a kid. My love for these coconutty treats increased when I discovered the chocolate dipped variety at Godiva. Say what??? I never thought of making them myself..thanks to the lovely Sara of sprouted kitchen, I now know how!

post i loved: The People’s Supermarket: a new approach to food shopping

What a lovely and informative write up was on the amelias magazine blog this week (not last week sorry..), about The People’s Supermarket– a new food cooperative that recently opened in London. Currently being set up by innovative and forward-thinking chef Arthur Potts Dawson, The People’s Supermarket offer a new way of shopping that aims to change the way we buy food. Apparently its model on the idea of the Park Slope Food Coop, a place dear to me that elicits great memories. I really hope all goes well for The Peoples Supermarket as I am a huge fan of shopping right when it comes to ones grub.

post/email/item i loved: Modern German Tea Set

Is it possible to have a crush on an etsy store? Cos every time I go to the hindsvik store I find myself giggling and blushing and totally charmed. Case in point, the above gorgeous German tea set. It features a tea pot and tea cups made of textured ceramic and gold patterned touches. TEXTURE! GOLD! oh and did I mention it’s only $42….it had me at ‘tea set’ . It had me at ‘tea set’.

*blogships is a rip on an email I got that opened with ‘ what’s cooking my friendships?’
