Strawberry season in France is a thing, you know? And is a short one since it last only from (usually late) Spring to Summer. I started to spot cagettes with strawberries from Spain in markets and supermarkets about late March, but it was just about these last weeks that I saw Gariguettes strawberries from Carpentras, a french variety that, next to Mara de Bois, are acclaimed as the favorites of french people. It was until then that the husband and I got the idea to jam them.
Temperatures are rising everywhere including here in Marrakech so I thought it would be nice to share this refreshing Mango smoothie recipe that Karen created for our site. Also, since we´re just days before Ramadan, I think this sweet and caloric recipe will help my Moroccan friends to arrive to Holy Month in good shape.
We´re hoping you´re getting all glitzy and glam to welcome the new year; and by we, I mean aromas&sabores’ fantastic team of Co+laborators: Daniela, Karen, Juliana, Ashton & Katya. Each one of these wonderful ladies put their heart and time to create something different and pretty but at the same time practical to improve your everyday life.
Hey there amigos. Here at A&S we´re so excited to bring you another gorgeous co+lab. For this Healthy Living collaboration I invited my not beautiful but gooorgeous russian friend Katya Mendes da Maia to share with us tips and recipes that will make you look and feel great. Katya is a Health Coach & Raw Food Chef to be that I meet about three years ago in Macau at a Beaujolais Nouveau party (well, we can have a glass of wine every now and then, right?). Later, we coincided at a Macau tour guide course where both started to be more interested in each others countries (She finds Mexico as exotic as I do think of Russia) while madly falling in love with our lil island´s history, gastronomy and world heritage; bueno, as you can imagine we share so many interests in common. I admire in Katya the tenacity, enthusiasm and commitment she imparts on every aspect of her life. I know you will love her collabs in here as well. Please give her a warm welcome and check her brand new blog Live & Love! – Heidi
Hope that you´re all already on full celebratory mood and (maybe?) enjoying some well deserved holidays. Since probably you are busy writing and sending last minute cards, choosing `Secret Friend´ presents and already working on your Christmas Eve dinner, I won´t steal much of your time. I will keep this post short.
