It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but that’s because I was going through the growing pains of putting up a new website. As of today, it’s up!
I’ll be tweaking it as the weeks go by, but the great thing is that now I know how to do everything myself! Gotta love WordPress.
With my new site comes a new logo, drawn by the incredibly talented Carol Gillott of Paris Breakfast. I’m lucky to know her quite well—she’s my aunt—so she entertained my request of coming up with a new look for me. I’m thrilled with what she created. Carol has always had a totally unique and whimsical sensibility. She drew this parrot for me as a greeting card when I was nine years old. It hangs in my kitchen today.
Meanwhile, I’m spending my days testing recipes for the new cookbook, the first draft of which is due in a couple of months. The photo at the top of the post is of a popular Persian dessert called faloodeh, made of sorbet with frozen rice noodles. My version is made with rhubarb, thus the neon pink color. I’ll give lots more glimpses into the book in the months ahead. For now, it’s back to the kitchen.
