Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in Bed| Photography and Styling by Sanda Vuckovic

There is something about being awake with a fragrance of freshly made coffee and tasting a cinnamon apple pie while still feeling the warm sheets around.
There is something about taking your time and enjoying a quiet morning, having a slow breakfast while reading your favorite magazine…
As a mum of two, all of this seems as an unreachable dream to me. I am the first one waking up and preparing breakfast for all of us every day.

Lately I got this beautiful bed linen from Evencki, made from Egyptian cotton, and its comfort calls for lazy mornings.
I keep dreaming about breakfast in bed, with a coffee in one hand and a magazine on the other…
There is nothing wrong with dreaming, isn’t it?!?!

Bosnian Apple Pie

(for one)

2 medium apples, grated
1tbs sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
4 sheets filo pastry
handful of walnuts sunflower oil for brushing

Brush the small baking with sunflower oil. Take one sheet of filo pastry, brush with sunflower oil and place other sheet on top of it. Mix the grated apple with sugar and spices.
Place a few spoons of apple filling (try to take out all the juice) on the top of the filo sheet (on the longer side) and sprinkle with some walnuts, leaving 2cm edges empty. Roll the pastry and place in a dish (if you use a round dish go from the edge to the center). Continue until you finish all filling and pastry. Brush the pie with oil.
In the meantime, heat the oven to 180ºC. Place the pie in the oven and cook for around 40min (or until it gets a nice color). If you see that it is starting to get burned, place an aluminum foil on top of it.

There is not much more to add, than what I already said so many times…
It’s a fact… I am such a huge fan of Inês‘ work!
If you already met Inês, you would know how simple and calm she is and she transmits that to her work.

When Inês invited me to photograph her studio, together with few pieces from her new collection, I felt so honored.
Creative spaces always attract me and they are such a great inspiration and Inês‘ studio is not an exception. I spent a great afternoon wandering around, photographing and having a great conversation with a cup of tea.

Apple and Ginger Cake

Apple and Ginger Cake | Photography and Styling by Sanda Vuckovic

Autumn is finally here and brought
… rain, grey days and cozy feeling
… cold breeze, frozen breath and roasted chestnuts
… juicy apples and hot soups.

Grey, shades, light and my hands deeply involved into dough. I mix and bake.
My body is seeking for deep flavors and spices and I bake an apple cake with ginger … sprinkle it with maple syrup, one a friend gave me and I kept for a special occasions.
I sit and read with a cake on my lap and hot tee next to me.
I am happy.

Apple and Ginger Cake

(adapted from Anna Jones’s book ‘A modern way to eat’)

250 g spelt flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground cardamom
150 ml maple syrup
2 eggs, at room temperature
150 ml olive oil
1 tsp baking soda
3 cm round piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
3 cooking apples, peeled and grated

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Sift the flour into a bowl with the cinnamon, allspice, cardamom and bicarbonate of soda.

In a separate large bowl, mix maple syrup, eggs and oil. Add the flour mixture, then mix. Fold in the ginger and apple.

Butter a standard-sized loaf tin and pour the cake mix in. Smooth the top and bake for about 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the thickest part comes out clean. If the top looks like it’s browning too quickly, cover with foil. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Alfama is an old, typical Lisbon neighborhood. Narrow streets and stairways, laundry hanging from every window, locals gathering on the street to exchange daily news and gossips … it is what you can find wondering through streets of Alfama.

Alfama is full of shades and mystery. I love to get lost between it’s buildings, discover new passages, small restaurants, listen Fado echoing on it’s tiny streets ..

Alfama is a hart of Lisbon.

The day I received a message from Karen, asking if I would accept hosting a small gathering to celebrate her new cookbook, will stay in my memory for a long time.
I read that mail a few times, to be sure I understood it correctly.
Karen’s work is a great inspiration for me for so many years and I dream of attending one of her gatherings in Brooklyn.
Of course I accepted her challenge immediately.

When the Sunday Suppers’ Cookbook arrived and I had a chance to look through it, I was without words.
Photography, recipes, menus… it was breath taking… and I got terrified that I would not be able to make it justice.

Since autumn was at the door, I invite a few friends and decided to make dishes from the autumn menu. Recipes were easy to follow and food was worshiped.

We spent hours around the table, heard great stories, get to know each other even better and enjoyed food.

 

MENU

___________________________________________

Corned beef with root vegetables
Braised purple cabbage
Sesame and salt pretzels with brown beer mustard
Apple and olive oil cake

I woke up on a grey day Lisbon is known for, days I cherish and wait for.

Entering corridors and rooms at Fabrica Braço de Prata, with all shades of grey, abandoned blue couch, wooden floors …. my hart rate went up, adrenalin rushed , this was dream scenario for SUL products.

´…We stand for simplicity, unique pieces that endure over time, accompanying successive generations, carrying moments to be told, like carved tattoos…´

I am obsessed with markets.
I can spend hours walking around, looking at food, speaking with people.
It always has the same result; I get home so inspired that I start thinking about the meals that I can make with the products I brought home.
When travelling, visiting local markets is a must. I think there is so much you can learn about a city and its people, with just one simple visit to a local market.

As a kid, I would go with my mum to the market, helping her with the bags. She believed that Tuesdays and Thursdays were the days to visit the market and find the best products.

Eu sou obcecada por mercados.
Posso passar horas a andar, a olhar para a comida, a falar com as pessoas.
Tem sempre o mesmo resultado; chego a casa tão inspirada que começo a pensar sobre as refeições que posso fazer com os produtos que trouxe para casa.
Quando viajo, visitar os mercados locais é uma necessidade. Acho que há tanta coisa que se pode aprender sobre a cidade e os seus habitantes, com uma simples visita a um mercado local.

Enquanto criança, ia com a minha mãe ao mercado, ajudando-a com os sacos. Ela acreditava que terças e quintas-feiras eram os dias para visitar o mercado e encontrar os melhores produtos.
