“Still life” by Kim Hyeung Geun (Korea, b. 1930) – 2014.
Via Blouin Art Info.
A delight! And so so fresh. I made it with oven baked corn tortillas (it becomes a tostada) sprinkled with sesame seeds and the smoked salmon is from Norway.
Just place on a tostada: a few slices of avocado and some smoked salmon. Top with a slice of Gari (Japanese ginger pickle) and sprinkle with dried mint and lime juice.

“Still-life with cherries and strawberries in China bowls” by Osias the Elder Beert (Belgium, 1580-1624), oil on copper (50×66 cm), dated 1608 – via the Staatliche Museen, Berlin.
Perfect! Don’t you think?

Beautifully preserved ceramic cone-shaped vase from the Chalcolithic Period (late 5th millennium BC), from Tall-i Bakum (not far from Persepolis), Iran.
– In all probability, this 20 cm high vase was used to store or serve liquids. Other similar artefacts found suggest the top could be sealed with clay.

Another wonderful treat for the goûter (four o’clock snack). I made it with decaf cappuccino to the joy of my son. The mixture of cold and hot is delightful!
Just prepare a cappuccino with one shot of espresso and plenty of foam. Drop two scoops of chocolate ice-cream and it’s done. No sugar added.
Oh the wonders of a milkshake when my little one comes back from school on a warm afternoon!
Just place in the electric mixer as much chocolate ice-cream as you want, one banana and milk just enough to cover three quarters of the content. Mix a few times, back and forth.
Enjoy and smile!
Because sometimes the world is so absurd, we have to fill it with simple joy.
