I often get asked where do I get my props. I often get them online, at little shops or sometimes at flee markets. I recently found a nice online shop from the States called Eating Tools that sells cooking and eating utensils. They are all handcrafted by different artisans all around the world, so each piece is quite unique. I got the copper bowl and titanium chopsticks in the picture above from that shop. You can find the recipe for the cucumber noodles with miso roasted salmon here.
SNCKBR, the healthy all day cafe, now has a new location at the Kinkerstraat in Amsterdam West. I was invited to a dinner tasting, while they were still doing the final touches on the new location, hence all the tools in the background. The food they serve is really good and they have a good variety of vegetarian and some vegan options too. So it is definitely worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood. It was too dark to take a decent picture of everything that we ate, but if you follow my Instagram stories, you’ve probably already seen it.
Last week I also went to a beauty event organized by Elle magazine and Yves Saint Laurent. It was to celebrate the launch of their new lipstick Vernis a Lèvres Vinyl Cream. So we got some tips from make up artists and got to try on some of their products. It was a fun girly afternoon with my friend Rosanna. And of course, no event is complete without a goody bag. I’m a big fan of the lipstick, it is very easy to apply and doesn’t dry my lips.
