culinary book fair

 

Sunday,
Another summer  crowned beautifully with such an event.
This time very special, 25th anniversary of Qchnia Artystyczna, which can be translated as The Artistic Kitchen, a fantastic place to have a bite, or The Artistic Cusine, which would direct us to the thought of unconventional way of thinking towards culinary issues presented by Marta Gessler – the author and creator of QA.

coffee break

As it was once said,

Coffee is a language in itself.
~ Jackie Chan

and as Portuguese may not be the easiest to learn,
the best way to discover that culturally fascinating country might be through the taste.
One of the things of the Portuguese cuisine that appealed to me the most,  along with white wine made of unripe grapes called vinho verde, was rich in aroma  coffee with a delicious aftertaste. Surprisingly, there is the whole other heritage and history of the beans, prepared in a specific way, brewed differently from the well-known Italian method.
If you love coffee as much as I do, I highly encourage you to try Portuguese galão, if you’re up for a caffè latte, cafe com leite, which would be something between cappuccino and flat white, or cafe com nata which is an espresso-like coffee served with sweetened whipped cream on top, all so tasty and so tasteful! I assure you, you won’t regret, such a delicious experience!

“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s a bit immodest of a person to call their work art, but even though it is, what I’d like to say is that for certain type of people the art is the most accurate way to let their emotions and thoughts out and what may, or may not, be a surprise I think I can relate to those who in art can find the way to share what’s on their minds.

happy girls are the prettiest

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
~ Audrey Hepburn
