Because in food I trust. In all forms and shapes. 

When it's all about flowers

When it's all about flowers

Sometimes, it is all about flowers. Especially when summer comes and flowers are everywhere. Even on your clothes and in your food. Flowers are my second passion. Not that I know how to grow them, but I just love to smell them, touch them, and have them on my table at home. And as it turns out, I am not the only one; there are people who like to incorporate flower motifs in their work – from paintings to clothing.

I fell in love with this collection as soon as I saw it. The lightness, the white and bright red, the feeling of something fresh and so fragile. That made me think about so much, starting from food to places where I could wear the clothes. And the obvious choice was a walk in the botanical garden where flowers are an essential part of everything. And it became an essential part of the things I cooked.
