A flowery break


Today I’m sharing with you some recent pictures, a beautiful bouquet of roses from my the garden of my friend’s auntie. The flowers were gorgeous, all different, some so tight they looked like peonies, others with a divine smell, with striped petals, or with the prettiest pink color. It would have been a shame not to photography them. I also realised that I’m quite found of taking pictures of flowers. It’s a delicate process because I want to capture every nuance of a bouquet, it’s a very different approach from food photography I think. I also tend to take way too many pictures and I’m very indecisive in choosing the one to keep (I’d love to keep them all !). I hope you will enjoy those flowers as much as I did.
A quick note to say that the blog is going on holiday mode until the end of the month ! I will be back in August with fresh summer recipes :)








Happy 2016


I wish you a sweet and happy 2016 !

I know it’s time for new resolutions and goals at the dawn of this new year but I choose not to make any. Work-wise, I simply wish to continue what I have set up in 2015 : sharing photographs and recipes here, working on my mom’s website and growing Maison Menara !
I’m lucky to leave in the lovely Bordeaux region, so I wish to spend as much time as possible close to the nature, surf, cook, see my friends and take time for my family. Very simple !
