Lemon Sicilian


Purchased on a spring jaunt to the beautiful island of Sicily, Italy.

The ceramic shops of Ortigia in Syracuse, are filled with the bright colours of Maiolica, adorning every kind of household object or ornament you can think of. As you can imagine, this makes choosing one piece exceptionally difficult.

The lemon pot, was in a row of pots on top of a wardrobe. Each as different in size and decoration as can be, which meant although my eye was drawn to it, it didn't grab my attention. On the second visit, the pot was brought down for me to take a closer look. I admired the light flowing lines of the painted lemons and leaves, coupled with jade, ultramarine and a rosy glaze—I was sold!

Gushing Eastwick

 

 

The sweet tang of eating cherries in the summer is a delight, but I am unable to eat them, without the scene from the film: The Witches of Eastwick, popping into my head—you know the one!

Royal Pea

 

 

 

This could very well be the pea from the fairytale: The Princess and the Pea.

A charming fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, about how the extreme sensitivity and hence proven royality of a young girl, was proved by the addition of a pea under her mattress.

Sicilian Orange



My latest foody recipe - Sicilian Orange Salad, inspired by a Spring jaunt to Syracuse on Sicily. Wonderful sunshine and good food. This delicious salad is made with blood oranges, which makes the salad less sharp.
