Events | Holiday Flowers

Posted By:Celine
This past week we were delighted to collaborate with Anthropologie on their special Holi-DIY series, which was taking place in stores across Canada and the US. Ours took place at the Toronto Shops at Don Mills location - the store looked beautiful decked out in greenery for Christmas, the perfect backdrop for our event centering on holiday flower arranging. We enlisted the help of Alison Westlake of Coriander Girl, a fabulous flower shop located in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood on Queen Street West. Besides the opportunity to work with delightful and fragrant holiday greenery and blooms, we took the opportunity to share a little about WHY sustainable flowers are so important Read More

Today I'm sharing a really special recipe—it's a showstopping crowdpleaser that originally appeared in Pure Green Magazine's The Organic Kitchen, Volume 1 (in print), and we've decided to release it online because it's just that good. As the holidays are approaching you may be looking for stunning yet easy recipes to make, which is what inspired me to revisit this recipe. Jonathan, our Food Editor, created this dish for Pure Green Magazine as a deceptively simple yet extremely elegant dessert. The delicate flavour of honey and mascarpone cheese is perfectly complemented with the sweet fig and crunchy pistachio, a well-thought out and inspired combination that isn't too sweet, tastes light and leaves you satisfied.

You might remember I had announced a series of Eco Read features with cookbooks in mind. Easily one of my favourite categories of books, there's so much inspiration to be had EVEN when you're married to an amazing chef. Some nights he doesn't feel like cooking, and while I don't mind the task, my mind isn't carried away with endless possibilities upon opening up the fridge door so I rely on my favourite cookbooks. With our latest issue of the magazine all about food, I thought it was apt to run a series featuring just a few of those cookbooks I love, both new and old. Today's pick is The Preservation Kitchen by Paul Virant & Kate Leahy. Read More

I'm always happy to get an email from Saana ja Olli announcing a new collection—their newest release, called Maailman synty (= the birth of the world) is inspired by age-old Finnish creation myths and their rich wall rug tradition. The design, which is slightly reminiscent of cross-stitch but with a decidedly modern angle, is printed on hemp fabric which Saana ja Olli produces. Read More
