“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.”
Stepping out of the kitchen to admire the chamomile flowers under the plum tree…
I started dreaming of cherry clafoutis….
…melon, lemon balm and spearmint ..
…boysenberries and lavender crème fraîche…
…must go back to the kitchen..
Sincerely hope to see you on this beautiful sunny week end.
Lonsdale Quay Saturday and
First of the season Ladner Market on Sunday!!
Most of you know by now how much I cherish dandelion flowers..
And I travel a long way to find immaculate and beautiful flowers…
Collecting them just before they change from suns into moons..
365 flowers will make 6 jars of dandelion confit…
365 flowers, one for each sun that have risen and set since last year’s spring…
Dandelion confit has a rich amber colour with a pleasant taste reminiscent of honey…
Dandelion confit is as bright as the sun and as sweet as honey.. it is simply spring in a jar..
Last week end we attended our first market at the River District Farmer’s Market..
The ducklings took their first swim, the pigeon posed , and blue heron the lone hunter stood gracefully waiting for his prey…
We had a lovely day under the trees meeting the resident of the river district. We will see you soon again.
There is something comforting about following the season in my kitchen. After the dark days of winter, bright ruby red rhubarb is bringing back sweet memories of Spring.
And the chopping begins; hundreds of pounds of fresh rhubarb will be chopped in thick pieces and later, melt in the jam pan, while the sweet aroma will perfume my kitchen for days…
Rhubarb, the hearth of Spring, with its sweet, tart, unique flavour is always worth waiting for…
Rhubarb in Bloom; bright rhubarb and delicate rose petal water for tender mornings… And Fiery Rhubarb with spicy ginger to warm up after a cold winter..
Add new memories to your Spring morning…

Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
