Fave Memory: Sundays were never complete without pancakes growing up in my house. These lazy mornings would start off with careful measuring of ingredients and usually end with batter covering my mom’s normally immaculate kitchen countertops. The end result was always worth it though: sweet, sticky, syrup-covered pancakes. But the best of the best Sundays were the ones after my mom and I would go blueberry picking. Fresh blueberries in fluffy, golden pancakes were (and still are) the best way to wake up on a Sunday.
I actually assumed our dad invented these!! Mom never made them (pancakes & waffles were her thing). This was his specialty & it was a treat since we never had them during the week. I always wondered why he called them “wink eyes” since it looked like a big wide open bug eyes to me.....maybe because he’d always give you that big exaggerated WINK when he served them ❤️❤️
Having bagels on Sunday has always been a ritual in my family for as long as I can remember. My dad would pick up bagels at our local shop. He always reads the newspaper while enjoying his bagel. As our family grows and expands, we've added more toppings and fixings when we get together for Sunday brunch, but the ritual always feels the same to me.
Fave Memory - My mother was 5 years old when she left Sweden to come to live in Italy with my grandmother. New life, culture, recipes and a different language, she soon forgot Swedish and grew up like a real Italian girl.
There is a recipe, however, that has helped to maintain a link with her origins and it is the preparation of Pannkakor, or as we call them in our family, the "Pankoka" name invented by my mother child. From my grandmother to my mother, from me and my sisters to our daughters (yes we are all girls! ;) ) the time to prepare and then enjoy the "Pankoka" becomes a small, although simple, event of celebration to our Swedish origins.
In our 20s, my sister and I used to do a lot of long distance bike camping, and our go-to cooking method amounted to “wrap it up in tin foil and throw it in the fire!” This breakfast my sis invented is GENIUS. Multigrain bagel for fibre, apple for ... fibre as well, I suppose, and chocolate caramel for fun!
Inspired by the most important meal of the day, the 90's and geometry - this piece uses simple geometric shapes and patterns to depict a typical breakfast meal. I used bright colours and motifs reminiscent of 90's fashion and textiles, and a strong geometric structure to "imply" common breakfast foods.
