Design Tips, The Best Cookbook Ever

As a student of architecture in early 90’s I’was deeply impressed by John Pawson and minimalism.

My first interiors actually were very close copies of  the job  he was doing than. It wasn’t easy to get customers for this kind of interior in Latvia, and I’s very lucky to have realized works.

Time has passed and I’ve change my approach to interiors, but even now I’ve kept deep respect to this Bristish architect, and consider him as one of my Teachers.

His cookbook  Living and Eating that came out 2001 , I bought mainly because of  the pictures of his private interior. But today, 10 years later, it’s the most used cookbook in our home.

Today I made Chicken and White Wine Stew with Gremolata. It’s wonderful.
