Macaron

This is a video for the beautiful NadΓ¨ge Patisserie. It’s dangerously close to where I live. Another shop that sells macarons in downtown Toronto is Petit Thuet, dangerously close to my work, with an amazing espresso macaron.

My friend Lisa home-made me a giant box of lemon and mint chocolate macarons for my birthday last week. They only lasted 2 days. It was amazing and just what I wanted.

When I was little I remember hearing people talk about these french pastries, these ‘macarons’… I thought, who cares, they aren’t that good. My grandma makes them at least eight times a year! Of course, I was thinking of ‘macaroons‘, those chocolate and coconut mounds that have been brought to every family gathering since before I can remember.

Cheers to foods.

Good eats

Happy Family Day fellow Canadians (Happy Presidents Day you Americans). I was super excited to eat this. And then I did and it was great.

Baby red potatoes roasted with onion and garlic and then re-fried with buttery mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, spices, chives and topped with an egg. Perfection your name is lunch.

Bang Bang

There are a lot of not-so-great fashion film editorials floating around, so when I stumbled across one this good I had to share it.

Delicious. Dreamy. Subtle. I definitely want more. She’s so causal, almost too causal. And every time they stop, and there is that stare straight into the camera… “Bang bang, my baby shot me down” … I love that this creative team got the feeling of romance and heartbreak and isolation and mystery into a shoot using so few elements.

Fresh Influence

Sitting at home sick, watching this video, thinking about chicken noodle soup and streams of influence and culture. I like this. A lot.
