There’s a new fashion in fashion. (did that came out odd? But it’s true, believe me!) Remember that foodie magazine with Karlie Kloss on the cover? Or Jourdan Dunn cooking in some video episode? Catwalk is getting closer to the kitchen, one show at the time!
Vogue’s latest ‘doing’ is a series called ‘Elettra’s Goodness’ where the famous Elettra Rosellini Wiedemann, famous for being the daughter of Isabella Rossellini more than for her own modeling career, is cooking or more specifically chatting with other people while they’re cooking. A nice, chatty talk around the stove with all kinds of personalities. In this case, Blake Lively.
Why is she ‘more interesting’ than others? Because it’s pretty much the first time I’ve seen her in front of the cameras since her very low-profile, extremely mysterious and discrete wedding to Ryan Reynolds, especially since she has forged some kind of home-y reputation citing Martha Stewart as her idol! (you may remember that everyone was waiting for Blake and Ryan’s wedding feature in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine and all we saw was the food on the table and not much of the scenery, let alone the wedding guests or the bride and groom!)
Fashion, entertainment and food collide in a one big happy, new series under Vogue’s umbrella. Good or bad? I’m sure that cooking a brie puff pastry thingie with compote and balsamic schminegar schmancy sauce on top is on everyone’s meal list right now as the number one priority (ha!) and since I’m in a terrible low of kitchen-inspiration, I’d like you to share your (real life) favorite recipes that are both quick and tasty. I’m not asking for much, am I?
I’ll start with moi: I’m a salad person. I can eat anything as long as it has green leaves, dried nuts and some bits of cheese here and there. My favorite breakfast is muesli cereals with fruits in fresh apple puree with yogurt (sounds complicated? It’s actually Greek yogurt, store-bought, combined with two small apples reduced to puree in a blender and added cereals, about 1cup/2 apples and 2 TS of yogurt). That fuels me for half a day (that and a black, strong cup of coffee, no sugar). No cooking lessons needed for that (wink)!
