Mirabile dictu! What an honor it is to be included in this month’s Pasadena Magazine featuring 9 Groundbreaking Women! I am very excited to share with you a peek into the issue.
May, a memorable month in the Bijouxs Kitchen Studio! First up is Bijouxs very special feature in this month’s Pasadena Magazine! What a pleasure it has been to meet and work with the fantastic new editor-in-chief, Maria Russo! Thank you Maria! It’s exciting to hear the expanded vision Maria has for the magazine. Collaborating with the talented editors and staff at the magazine to create the concept for the five-page spread was a joyful creative experience. Merci!
The Pasadena Magazine feature contains recipes from my upcoming digital cookbook, Bijouxs Family and Friends, the first in a series of little jewel volumes. May and June are always calendared with celebratory events and this family-friendly menu is one I often serve in the summer when dining casually on our well-weathered picnic table. It includes favorites from Bijouxs.com, such as super-fresh Provençal Cocktail and Fresh Blueberry Pielets, along with exclusive recipes from the Family & Friends digital cookbook. (Pictured above, Santa Maria Style Steak Salad with Cheesy Crusted Potatoes). Pasadena Magazine May/June issue is on the newsstands now!
More about the upcoming cookbooks and the concept behind my work are here and as writer, editor, cook, book designer, stylist, photographer, and of course head dishwasher, Bijouxs is an independent, true labor of love! I know, I’m little crazy to produce the projects just moi, but I love creating the little jewel cookbooks, they are my culinary vision and I trust with the right partnerships I will bring the cookbook series forward. And after all, we never really are alone, I receive love and encouragement from family, friends and of course Bijouxs readers, thank you!
May – a busy, wonderful, memorable month at Bijouxs! Thank you again to Pasadena Magazine for the honor to be included among a group of very talented, groundbreaking women, I am humbled.
Wishing you all a very happy beginning to the summer season.
