La Petite Cuisine a Paris

March 5, 2011

That’s what happens when a girl with inspiration and resourcefulness combines the love for food with the city of gastronomy, Paris.

Rachel Khoo is the Cook.

After studying Art & Design at Central Saint Martins, her passion for pâtisserie lured her to Paris, where she studied at Le Cordon Bleu.

Four years later… there is a small kitchen.

Ok, not any innovation in that. The innovation is that she opens up this cute little kitchen for a delightful three course lunch for two! As Rachel says, she’s like the culinary version of Carrie Bradshaw, where clothes, shoes and handbags have been replaced with kitchen gadgets, cookbooks and other culinary knick knacks. So, those fortunate amongst you, who are planning a visit to beloved Paris, drop an email to Rachel, if you fancy a unique, dining-at-a-Parisian-apartment experience, and savour something like…

this… Gratin Dauphinois with a fresh herb salad,

together with… this… Poached egg with ratatouille,

and -Omigod- this… Apple and vanilla soufflé.

Served with a bottle of La Grange de quatre sous, Cuvée Garsinde 2009

Bon appétit, chéris!

NYFW street trends

February 18, 2011

Cameras have been rolling on the streets this past week in NY, as street-style is hotter, earthier and much more enviable than the catwalk look.

So here are some snaps and inspiring looks just off the pavement.

Some pretty masterful layering pulled out here…

Pleated long silky skirts is definitely the word for this season!

Some close-up snaps of these amazing little details that make all the difference…

…oh, and this Alexander Wang bag… green and studded! Simply ace!

February 10, 2011

Inès de la Fressange,  epitomises the stylish Parisian woman – the French beauty ideal with a natural elegance that comes from an inner beauty, wisdom, and sophistication.  As a model, Inès has served as a muse to Karl Lagerfeld and walked the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 runway this past fall at the age of 53.  She was the first model to ever sign an exclusive contract with Chanel.

Known for her impeccable style, Inès has traveled around the globe as the Ambassador of Roger Vivier.  On her travels she is frequently asked, “where did you buy this?” and “what is your secret?”  So, finally, she decided to write a book- sharing her own style tips, personal illustrations, and photographs.  Already sold in Paris, the book Parisian Chic: A Style Guide is set for release in english this April.

The book features photographs of Inès and her daughter, Nine D’Urso.

They are both wearing similar inspirational styles and offering different outfit examples of the world of French chic.

You can pre-order the book on Amazon. ..can’t wait to receive a copy !
