Just give me any ingredients and I am ready to spend a day in this white and rustic kitchen cooking up a
storm. You want home-made ice cream for dessert? I'll make it. Cake too? No problem, you can have it.
As much as I love elegant kitchens I find myself more drawn to ones that have a bit of that rustic vibe going
on. I don't know what it is; it just feels more real somehow. I guess it has something to do with me liking
kitchens that are easy to maintain, kitchens that just look very homey. This one is in a house on the French
island Île de Ré, just outside of La Rochelle, which is on the west coast. I love how bright it is and how the
decor is kept to a minimum. It's the food that matters.
How has your week been? I'm ready to give the alarm clock a rest and sleep in just a little. Today I have
prioritised things that need to be done so I can enjoy relaxing this weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with a bit
of Luxembourg. Enjoy your Friday!
