In May, I went with a friend, for their Lunch Break Cooking class. In front of 10 people, a chef demonstrated 3 recipes from a cook book. That day, it was the famous and inspiring Jerusalem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi. I already had the book and was happy to be able to test knew recipes from it.

First, we had a baby spinach salad with almonds, dates and pita, then turkey and zucchini meatballs with yogurt sumac sauce and finally a semolina coconut cake. Everything was delicious and I made these recipes for guests at home and they loved them!

Check out tomorrow’s Lunch Break! The menu will once again be inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi but this time, the cookbook  will be Plenty. I would love to go again but unfortunately I am not available that day!

Kehinde Wiley – A New Republic

The appropriation of the grand portrait

Following the tradition of European painters portraits, Kehinde Wiley looks for models with a lot of personality on the streets for casting. Then the model and the artist chose a traditional history portrait that would serve at a base for the new contemporary art. Pose, background, attitude, and clothes are chosen and the results are amazing.

Religious subjects

Introduction of black men in religious portraits

This part was my favorite: An Economy of Grace

Through a street casting, the artist chose his models and ordered Givenchy couture gowns inspired by nineteenth century.

Don’t miss the film that follows the entire process.

Great State Burger
New Burgers in town

A new addition to the Seattle’s Fast Food Burgers scene!

The menu is very short: Burgers, Fries, and Milkshakes.

The burger (single patty) tasted great.  I liked the kind of brioche bun and the grass fed beef meat. Not spectacular, but very good.

It looks like they wanted to do something like Shake Shack in NYC. I need to go back to New York and check again if Great State Burger is close or not to the famous New York Burgers! 😉
