Jungian or marbles in my mouth?

Part of a selection of story boards I created for a new print technique, the only one on the East coast and it's at Prestone Printing.  The printer will pick out certain aspects and print them in shiny 3-D?   trippy

Taillevent

The first cookbook ever written was by this man, Taillevent.  He wrote down oral traditions, which had been passed down from chef to chef during the Middle Ages in Paris.  In it he has recipes for peacock, stork, eagle, heron and violet and sage wine.  I'm making the sage wine for tonight to have with duck (Lily's favorite).  He suggests sprinkling some gold leaf in the drinks... This is part of my Paris story that's consuming me and my kitchen at the moment.

A romantic new scarf in the making

I've been away all summer and blogless... A wonderful holiday in Italy and London and lots of exciting news... I'm working on a fun new book (an icy one) to be published in Spring... I made a little animation for my friend Elena Lappin's new Book Trailer Trash venture (I'll post it) and created some delicious new pop recipes with my nephew for the sought-after Ice Kitchen carts in London.  I'm designing a scarf for the Metropolitan Opera's upcoming production of La Boheme and another scarf to be decided, for the Royal Opera house in London!  Here's a thumb nail sketch which I hope to develop into a scarf, full of Paris romance - 1830's style - with the classic story intertwined.  I'll let you know when its finished... Lily a constant inspiration and taste tester for the new book.

Granita Season!

A simple heavenly one to get you started.  Granita is the earliest form of iced dessert and crazy easy to make.  My daughter Lily made this one today.  You can serve it with cookies or on its own... When it's hot and humid like it is today in New York, we crave it as I have a very bad air conditioner.  The recipe is adapted from my book 'Granita Magic'.
