If you’ve ever:
a) Bumped into me at the grocery store…
b) Seen me take out my trash…
c) Witnessed the size of my salads on Snapchat…
You must think I cook a lot for my roommates. Truth is, I don’t have any roommates. I live by myself. I just like to eat.
So when Eve Gravel’s team asked me to be part of a project revolving around desserts, my stomach growled and I immediately said yes. The concept? Since every piece of Eve’s summer collection is named after something sugary — like Gelato and Marshmallow — the goal was to pick one kit, stuff my face with the selected dessert and immortalize the sweet moment on camera.
Fashion remains my longtime passion, so I had the decency of choosing the clothes for their design rather than for their names. My pick: a monochromatic twinset composed of the Nougat shorts and the Peach shirt. I was definitely more in a fruity mood (nougat is more of a winter dessert, right?), so I made a Gwyneth Paltrow of myself and prepared white and orange-fleshed peach popsicles. I know, just like a peach is bursting with juice, I’m bursting with creativity.
For those who’d like to try out my 3 Michelin-star-worthy recipe, here it is:
- Patience. Those ice pops gotta spend the whole night in the freezer. My suggestion: buy yourself some Häaggen-Dazs while you wait.
