Fondue for you!

with 4 comments

During the 18th century the origin of fondue began in Switzerland as a way to use aged cheeses and breads to feed families who had limited access to fresh foods during the winter time. Producers of cheese and bread saw their busy season was during the warm months and that the food had to be saved by villagers to be used through the cold winter months. As the cheese would age and the breads became stale it became more difficult to eat. The local villagers found that if they heated the cheese with wines, garlic, and herbs they could dip their stale bread which would soften when dipped into the flavourful cheese mixture. This way of cooking together over one pot and eating by a warm cosy fire became a Swiss winter tradition known as fondue. The word fondue comes from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means ‘to melt’ and has since then been used to reference many other types of fondue for meats, chicken, seafood, and even chocolate.

Cocktails at Eight!

with 9 comments

 

I think there’s a lot more than cocktails on offer here!  The Bonham dining set by Fancy Decor, currently at FaMESHed was the starting point for this picture, with the beautiful leaf decoration on the plates and wall prints, it made me think of an indoor/outdoor theme.

There’s been a frenzy of houseplant sets from various designers, lately.  I’m using several here, most notably the set by Dust Bunny, currently at FaMESHed.  These are finely observed, and include the medinilla plant, a North American variety with exotic hanging blooms.  I remember seeing the real life version of this in a friend’s house, a most unusual houseplant.

For sheer value on the houseplant front, though, I have to take my hat off to What Next, everything in the picture was purchased at various Fifty Linden Fridays.

I’m loving the new wall panels by Calm. Everything that designer produces is beautiful made and textured.  You can pick those up at the current round of The Chapter Four.
