Odette Cuisine

15 March, 2017

My name is Odette Olavarri. I am Mexican with Spanish and French heritage: I am condemned to good eating. My kitchen is probably where I spend most of my time, and I hope it stays like that for the rest of my days. It used to be a hobby, but since I had the chance to study at Cordon Bleu and working at Bakea restaurant in México city, being in my kitchen is like being in a laboratory. I am…

Lavender Ice Pops. Sutil Fine Crats by Miren de Abiega

Lavender ice pops are very easy to make. With only molds, water and flowers, you can serve pretty drinks for an outdoors brunch. I chose lavender, but there are many options of small flowers and plants you can use. * Remember to wash and disinfect them before you start. 1. Place flower in mold 2. Fill with water (up to fill line) 3. Freeze overnight. 4. Serve with sparkling water, lemonade, cocktails, white or rosé wine. You can also add…

How to make a Flower Box

8 February, 2017

Although I’ve always preferred airier flower arrangements, I think small flower boxes make a very pretty gift and desk decoration.  1. The first thing you must do, is choose your carton box. There are many gift boxes you can use, I found one from a Joe Malone candle I kept from a present.  2. Once you have your box, you can pick your flowers depending on its size, depth and color. Make sure the material is hard enough. Shoe boxes are good for bigger arrangements.  * You will also need…

Animal Cupcakes

5 February, 2017

  Toy animal figures are great for decorating birthday cakes or cupcakes; ideal for parties or baby showers. I bought these blueberry cupcakes with frosting and placed all kinds of animals on them. You can choose a theme (safari, marine, woodland, jungle, farm, arctic…), a kind of animal (bears, rabbits, whales…) or as I did to have more range, a color palette. Animal figures are easy to find in local toy stores or online on websites like amazon. Dusty Miller foliage for your arrangements gives the whole place…

Embroidered Hello T-shirt

1 February, 2017

Give an old t-shirt a new use. Using embroidering thread, you can write or draw anything you like. The fabric from the t-shirt I chose was a little bit tricky, since it was very stretch. Be careful not to pull the thread too much between stitches. Try to make longer ones for straight lines and shorter for curves. Use contrasting colors, like black over white. I like simplicity and it is easier to make single line designs, if you’re not…
