Do you know where a true miracle is born?
You are right. In the kitchen.
Cooking is like magic! This gift is easy to transmit, but of course, you should know the recipe:
- one curious little girl
- good food
- vintage kitchen
- and your grandma’s skillful hands ;))
…As a result, a lifelong passion and great mood for every day!
Our grandma wasn’t a very open person, but she showed her love trough the things she did so well for us: cooking, needleworking and making our house to a place, we liked to come back.
So, one of the things, we loved to do together, was baking crescent rolls.
My role was to spread jam on the dough and to roll it. And I was ABSOLUTELY fabulous;))
And now straight to the point!
