Hola amigos, for Karen´s & I third collaboration, we decided to propose you some ideas on how to set up and style a home bar. Long gone are those days when a bored housewife was supposed to greet her man with a cocktail on hand (just for him, obviously). These days, we, ladies & gents, like to enjoy a nice drink while in a chic but relaxed setting. With Karen´s smart advice, we integrated a `bar cart´ in a little corner of our living room, since then that place has become one of my husband´s and I fave spots à la maison. R. and I are really taking advantage of our swanky bar display and nowadays, he´s the one who pours a glass of Cognac for his gal.
A beautiful table setting worthy of a glossy lifestyle mag, a heart warming welcome, a divine classy mexican menu created by my friend Ashton Winkler and a stunning sunny and balmy day in Hong Kong was all it took to spend a whole afternoon chatting about life but also planning more fun co+labs for this blog.
Hello everyone, here is our second installment of the regular contributions we started last week. This monthly section will be a collab between my friend Madame Karen Gaignon, a super talented french sommelier and myself. While Karen will be sharing some exclusive cincin hour recipes for our site I will pair them with some simple and easy savory or sweet recipes of amuse bouches, entrées or main dishes that will perfectly marry with K´s creations.
Shall we start?.
