What’s cooking my *blogships?

My blogships had a great foodie week last week that inspired me no end. Check it out..

Ceramic coffee cups by Ingrid Tuft

post i loved: Cumulus Inc. Porcelain Coffee Cups by Ingrid Tufts

After reading lucy’s post, Ingrid Tuft‘s ceramic coffee cups for coffee house Cumulus Inc. instantly went onto my wishlist. Most I know go through several coffee cups on any given day much less during a typical week. As part of a government funded craft initiaive ceramicist Ingrid Tuft was paired with Cumulus inc, to come up with an aesthetic and practical answer to the usually disposable coffee cup. The result, an aesthetically pleasing re-useable, highly street portable, individually crafted coffee cup. Unfortunately these only appear to be available in Australia, but if they ever reach NY I will be sure to find out!

Krim Krams
have moved to Norway and Lisa has not skipped a beat in whipping up her ever yummy looking plates of goodness. I paticularly like how her fare is light and covers various food groups, dairy, veg, meat, carbs, proteins etc etc. Oh and lets not forget the super vintage plates!

post i loved: Peach Brulee Burrata Bruschetta

Chef John is one of my favourite online foodie personalities. There is just something so approachable and endearing about him that you can’t help but love his videos and recipes. This past week he debuted a Peach Brulee Burrata Bruschetta (try saying THAT after a few…), I absolutely HAVE to try out this recipe! I hope you do too. Watch the how-to video here.

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