I am expecting a call to be invited on some Real Housewives show soon, I find myself cooking and especially baking a lot more when I am in LA than usual, which I find a bit odd. I don’t even have sweet tooth.
For months and months, I have had an idea about setting a beautiful afternoon table under the huge oak tree in the garden, the long table and the late sunrays just makes It an ideal place to cool off after a long hot day – and what better way than with a little cake and ice coffee. I teamed up with the best French tableware company, Pillivuyt, who have been creating handmade porcelain for 200 years. So, to celebrate 200 years and pay an homage to their French origin with Bastille Day tomorrow, I made a crêpe cake with cream cheese and raspberry jam – the easiest thing to make in the world.
Believe or not, I brought all the tableware with me from Copenhagen, I could just fit it all in my biggest suitcase. Plates, bowls and the cutest pitcher, all super versatile in use, so perfect for a BBQ night (as it all in fact tolerates the high heath from being put directly on the grill) or like here, a sweet desserty afternoon. In fact, the plates are the Plissé steak plates, the size is ideal for a big tenderloin or an extra big piece of cake, and the dish and bowl, which I have used for lots of fresh fruits, are from the Toulouse collection, designed by Sismo design studio.
Let me just quickly add, that the cute little pitcher, a true Pillivuyt classic, ideal for water, squash, hot coco throughout the winter, or a fresh bouquet of flowers is on 50% sale all of July and August for all Danish residents via Pillivuyt’s Danish webshop.
For now, I’ll just eat the rest of my cake and wait for that phone call. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday. I’ll be back tomorrow with more stuff this week.
