A fabulous Saturday afternoon in my kitchen with local Markham via Mexico Chef Paula Zavala. I was lucky to be able to attend her virtual Thai Food Cooking Class today. On the menu – Thai Coconut Milk Soup with Chicken or Shrimp, Chicken or Pork Skewers with Peanut Sauce and Thai Caramelized Plantains or Bananas.
Chef Paula hosts a few weekly classes virtually from her kitchen. Definitely recommend doing your mise en place prep before the class. In addition to her weekly classes, you can also book a private class too. What a fun and safe idea to enjoy with family, friends and/or your team for a little holiday cheer from the comforts of home. Gracias Chef Paula for a great few hours of connecting with others, learning and my delicious Saturday evening dinner. ♥️
Life doesn’t always give you a fairytale but thankfully that doesn’t mean you can’t own beautiful dishes just for you. Love my new Sophie Conran White Porcelain by Portmeirion dishes from the William Ashley Warehouse Sale. Simple and practical for every day and entertaining too.
Life doesn’t always give you the fairytale but it doesn’t mean you can’t aspire to own beautiful table-settings just for you. Beautiful selections at the stunning new William Ashley Flagship Store in Bloor Yorkville.
I love all things Finnish. My entire life I have been surrounded by Finnish design at home including many beautiful iittala pieces. I absolutely adore every one of these timeless beauties. This year, iittala is re-thinking the table setting and asking their Instagram followers to share their table reset. Sunny spring days will be in bloom soon so I created this spring table setting with a few of my iittala, Arabia and Marimekko treasured pieces. A fresh take on my spring table.
With hot and humid summer weather still in full swing, there is definitely still time to enjoy the opportunity to dine al fresco.
Here is some inspiration for a pretty table setting from my Dîner en Blanc Toronto table. Thank you to Metro Ontario on Front Street East for the surprise vases filled white hydrangeas that made our table perfect.
