We practically spent the day here, and our one night in Lausanne was primarily to go to this restaurant. We took the degustation menu, but also let greed get ahead of us and took their recommendations to also order the signature pork trotters and poulard de Bresse carved tableside. It was a very strong three Michelin-starred […]

This book has added so much more value to my life. Diving into the life of trees and learning about the greater ecosystem and nature. Given that this year’s global wellness trend has “forest bathing” and nature-related activities trending, this book is a brilliant read befitting this time and place. We’ve taken nature for granted […]

This is a backdated post from 18 months ago (!) Roots has to be my favourite independent restaurant in Macao and I highly recommend it. They also do hydroponics farming for their vegetables in a large warehouse and try to respect slow food as much as possible. The restaurant is elegant and minimalist, with a […]

It’s large and extensive as you get to learn about the behaviour and nature of all the little living creatures that make the eco system under the sea. I don’t have a padi licence as […]

We’ve had many lovely meals at the Restaurant and Mr chef stocks up on his wine collection at “Le Nez” the wine shop just behind the restaurant. We always pop in here for lunch when we’re visiting family in the south in Carpentras. We’ve dined more casually al fresco in the Summer, but it seems […]

The Louisana Art Museum in Copenhagen is definitely worth a visit, it’s a 35minutes train ride out of the city from Central station and it’s probably easier purchase your return train tickets along with admission (210 Danish Kronens). It’s a ten minute walk through a residential estate to get to the museum, so don’t panic […]

One of my favourite shows this trip to Europe. Polish artist Alicja Kwade’s exhibition. Exploring space, time and the art of “being”. I found it really calming and hits the spot with being mindful and in the moment of this reality, changing perceptions. “Out of Ousia translates loosely to ‘out of the substance’ – the […]
