Welcome to change, again! New and exciting things are cooking in the Bijouxs Little Jewels Kitchen. With a change of venue comes a return to my roots. I’m pleased to introduce a new feature here at Bijouxs—Perfect Pairing, here we go!
A few months ago I welcomed change—a new locale, new home and now the next change. A pivot in my career has taken me into the real estate world, which is in many ways a return to my origins but with expanded horizons. As many of you know, my career originated with a focus on architecture/design and then incorporated food. Many years ago I started out at architectural firms where I designed interiors for luxury retail projects. Embracing my design roots and love of structures, I am thrilled to be part of an incredible brand and a team specializing in beautiful properties. For me, helping clients find the home of their dreams is an honor. There is, after all, no place like home. And home is the core of Bijouxs Little Jewels from the Kitchen. Food and home are part of a whole, and I am pleased to remain happily immersed in both.
Now, as I tour our amazing properties, both online and in person, I can’t help but imagine… hmmm…what would I cook if I lived in this home? What would be the perfect recipe for this property? And that’s how Perfect Pairing was born. The Little Jewels Collections is now at home with food. With my schedule, I may experience a little less time in the kitchen, but plenty of time to dream of beautiful homes paired with beautiful food and I want you to join me. So, let’s tour the first Perfect Pairing.
Since Perfect Pairing embraces my design roots, I thought it only fitting to create the inaugural pairing in the most amazing city of all, New York City. This is the city where I worked designing luxe interiors for some of the most beautiful stores on The Avenue—Fifth Avenue.
What shall we dine on for lunch in this spectacular 14-room duplex apartment high atop the prestigious Pierre Hotel on Fifth Avenue? I imagine that it is a clear spring day, overlooking the park, the trees are vivid green, bursting with new leaves, one of those stellar Spring days in the city. Perhaps we begin with a first course of tender, thin Bijouxs High Society Asparagus, draped with rich Bijouxs Café de Paris hollandaise sauce, and because the day is so, so spectacular, just a little sip of champagne.
