Anne Nurminen – sitruunaisen taivaallinen pasta!

Joidenkin ihmisten intohimo ruokaa kohtaan on niin autenttista ja syvälle juurtunutta, että  samanmielisyyden ja anteliaisuuden ruoanlaitossa tunnistaa miltei saman tien. Anne on juuri sellainen henkilö. Älkää antako hänen tyylikkään sisääntulonsa hämätä. Annen Hediardin ostoskassin ja Vogue-lehden aikaansaaaman ultratyylikkään lookin takana on aitoa aseistariiisuvaa vaivattomuutta ja todellista intohimoa ruokaa kohtaan. “Intohimona kokkaaminen ja syöminen” Paitsi Account…

Lost in the Middle of Nowhere!

  I’m an Urban Animal. I long for the muffled noise of traffic through the windows, the agitation of the city, the pulsating lights of the metropolis beats at my rhythm. I love Helsinki.

You see, If there was a Food Oscar, Soup would surely win the “Not a Recipe” category (Nominated in the category too: Salad,  Sandwich & Quiche) – Am…

As a rule of thumb, one should always have a few ready-made savory pies pastries in the freezer.  Yes sure, it’s as nice to make your own, but by all mean, no one will ever know the difference so think twice because by the time they are defrosted, you can prepare the filling & get your oven to the…

Kalasatama, mon amour

In Helsinki there is a secret place. It’s a place where the sea surrounds you, the wind taste salty and the city’s luminescent heartbeat pulses with a decadent tranquility. Making Giant soap bubbles… just because I’m a city child, I’ve always been. I need the proof of life that comes from the movement and agitation of…

RuokkapiiWhat? Urban Farming under the Finnish “Sun”

I miss summer so much! Browsing through my pictures i keep going over the gorgeous vegetables that we got all summer long. Every second week, a big bunch of organic, locally grown vegetables, herbs would make their entrance in our home. It was our first year as members of the Herttoniemi Ruokkapiiri, and I’m so glad…
