COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Handle with care

Michelle Mannix

2018 06 08 handle with care.jpg

On this bright, warm, and otherwise beautiful Summer Friday, we find ourselves a little bit broken this morning. True, the sun has finally found its stride and is using it with vigor, but no forecast can shake the shadows over New York this morning. With the heartbreaking news of Kate Spade this past Tuesday, and now the death of Anthony Bourdain this morning, whose work and words explored and expanded how we think about food and the human condition, this city has lost two of its icons. One can only hope that this shines a necessary light on a dark truth about mental and emotional distress in this country…and though, in this moment, the shock feels near impossible to shatter, it is worth reflecting on all the joy, humor and beauty these two brought into the world, if for far too short a time.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | A hankering for high tea

Michelle Mannix

2018 05 18 hankering for high tea.jpg

P R E P   Y O U R   P I M M S . . .
 

Princess Megan is about to make her Mark(le) on high society across the pond and we’re all  
a-flutter with wedding season spirit which, in our case, means a boatload of buttercream. Should you experience any #cakefails this weekend,  join us on June 10th for our class on the classics with The Vintage Baker to perfect those pastry skills in time for sheet cake season around Independence Day (though we wouldn't turn our nose up at any #fail covered in frosting). 

It seems fierce females aren't just taking over on foreign soil - from New Jersey to Oklahoma, women are increasingly making their mark as future game changers in a still largely male dominated profession.

Ladies - home and abroad - caps, top hats and tiaras off to you.

COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | I got it from my Mama

Michelle Mannix

mumsday7 copy.jpg

Though we’re pretty sure every day should be Mother’s Day, we’re delighted to have a day dedicated just to celebrating the fierce and phenomenal women who paved the way for us. Perhaps she’s a foodie, a feminist, or simply all together fabulous - whatever and whoever she is, she helped create the wonder that is you and you’re magic, so she’s pretty much a badass in our book. 

For us, love can always be found around the dining table - so, whether it’s a fancy al fresco brunch, a FaceTime feast, or pancakes in your pjs (doesn’t everything taste better in bed?), we hope you have the chance to share a morsel or two with the mama that made you this Sunday. 

 

With love and biscuits,

NYC has shone this past week, with warmer climes arriving just in time for this weekend’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations. When we’re not baking bread or testing tarts, we’re spending our Saturday belly deep in barbacoa and potentially making some inadvisable, tequila fueled online shopping decisions for Mother’s Day

However and with whomever you spend this weekend, we hope it’s under a mountain of mole

Next month is just moments away, and we couldn't be more excited as we get ready for the re-launch of our signature Culinary Confidence Series, designed to inspire out of the box thinking and get your creative juices flowing, free from the restriction of rubrics and recipes. With mother’s day upcoming we’re also channeling some serious petal power in our Floral Workshop with Ferox Studio on May 12th and brushing up on our baking skills with Bread 101 and Spring Tarts and Pies. What better way to welcome May than with some brand new skills (and some tasty treats to accompany them)?
