2014-08-18

We start with the logical, though often ignored, golden rule #1 - know where your food comes from. You sure don’t want it travelling 3 continents, frozen for three years. Even fresh veal isn’t straightforward, so here comes rule #2 - set it aside for 5 days or so. If you ever did your best in the kitchen, followed your gut and still got it wrong (i.e. it took a…

Soul Food @ Sofia Breathes 2014

2014-08-08

Sofia breathes again throughout another August. Sofia breathes, sings, laughs, goes out for drinks, cooks, sews and learns crafts, creates something from nothing, with full lungs, crowded to the limit and beyond, full of faces, smiling, loving, excited, distracted and strict.

But is this the principle by which we should move forward? If calculated efficiency is what we are…

Farmhopping in good company with Airbnb, Snapgoods and Side Car

2014-07-11

              We’re going to speak about shared economy. What else could an economy be if not shared? Well, that’s a good question! The idea behind the term is that property is an outdated concept, and it isn’t that cool anymore to have all that many gadgets that you get rid of every month because of the newest trend out there. The tendency is towards finding the most innovative way to get the job done, without all those excessive possessions, or at…
