{ Cologne Christmas Markets }

Over the weekend we took a trip to Cologne, Germany to visit their historic Christmas markets. It was such a magical experience and I’d definitely recommend it. Germany’s Christmas markets are renowned for their old world charm and traditional German craftwork. On top of this they serve a superb range of delectable German delicacies, from baked apples to hot chestnuts, bratwurst, potato pancakes, gingerbread biscuits, chocolate and mulled wine to name a few. It’s the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. Here is a link to a very comprehensive site about the different markets. It really is a must see!

Outstanding in the Field
Outstanding in the Field, founded by Jim Denevan, started as a series of farm dinners in Santa Cruz, California. Since then, it has evolved into a travelling farm dinner series with Outstanding in the Field hosting over 90 events a year.

Outstanding in the Field aims to re-connect diners to the land and origins of their food, and at the same time celebrates the farmers, food artisans and chefs who work hard to transform harvests into creative feasts.

Each event starts with a tour of the location, whether it is a mountaintop, sea cove, island or ranch and ends in an exquisite setting with a grand table shared by farmers, producers, chefs and diners.

To take part in this wonderful celebration, visit their schedule here. January 2012 sees Outstanding in the Field in Hawaii for the first time, with 4 dinners at 4 farms on 4 islands. How Fabulous!

{ Totems, Toys & Treasures }


I'm so excited to share these amazing eco-friendly toys by Kidsonroof with you! This Dutch based company has designed the most beautiful cardboard selection of Totem toys and play homes, as well as a sweet selection of textiles and furniture. Not only do I love the fact that these toys have been made with recycled cardboard, I really like their interactive nature and artistic style. Have fun discovering more of their products here.
