I’m completely matcha obsessed. It was such a dream to be able to have it all day, everyday and with everything when I was in Japan. Aside from having the tea in restaurants and tea shops I had matcha Oreos, matcha chocolate, matcha ice cream, matcha pastries, literally matcha EVERYTHING!
This is absolutely insane. Dominique Ansel’s croissant-doughnut hybrid became NYC’s biggest food trend last summer, and continues to draw a huge line that stretches along the block and around the corner…
After a month of dashing between runway shows and presentations across two continents, I’m ready to take some time to relax. What better way is there to spend a Friday night than at an intimate wine and cheese party with your closest friends? Trouble is, being a hostess can also be draining, so I’ve rounded up all the greatest gadgets for minimizing the work and maximizing the enjoyment.
Nespresso has finally launched a machine were you can brew a large cup coffee. Unfortunately, the pods required to make this coffee do not fit into any of the Nespresso models aside from the just-launched VertuoLine.
I’ve been a fan of Enlightened ice cream ever since I first tasted it about six months ago. Their flavors are super low-calorie, low-fat, high in fiber, high in protein and most importantly super delicious and not filled with chemicals. Better yet, unlike its competitors, this is actually flavorful ice cream – it doesn’t taste like frozen water…even my father likes it (only because I never told him it was healthy)!
Scratch & Grain is one of the cutest food related products I’ve seen in awhile. I’m not a big cook or baker, but I do love making fresh cookies (especially when I’m invited over to a friend’s house)…except I’m usually too time-crunched to make them from scratch so I buy cookie dough.
Who doesn’t love chips and salsa? Unfortunately salsa tends to be far from healthy when you buy it in a jar at the supermarket. Not only are most very high in sodium, they’re usually devoid of any nutritional benefits and loaded with preservatives. Now there’s an alternative thanks to Yummy Yammy.
