On Sunday I woke up from an early afternoon nap with a seasonal itch to bake cookies.

Now, at any given moment I carry around in my brain a list of recently acquired, exciting ingredients I want to use, and in my half-slumber I started to review them. Jumping to the forefront were the broken walnuts I'd gotten for a good price at the organic store -- if you're going to chop them, why buy whole kernels? -- and a handsome bag of grated chocolate from Alain Ducasse's bean-to-bar manufacture*, which I'd been sneaking a spoonful of here and there while trying to think of a more respectable use for it.

Chocolate walnut cookies; that's what I was going to make.

I wanted a simple, one-bowl cookie base that would get me from start to finish in under an hour, and I wanted something reasonably nutritious so I could share with my toddler without triggering a surprise inspection from the bad parent police. The recipe for these walnut and date cookies, which I've been making regularly for the past three years, fit the bill perfectly.

 A Simple Carrot Soup Recipe Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

You are looking at the simplest of carrot soups. One I love, in part, because it's an example of how a beautiful meal can come together with a bit of care, and an impossibly short list of ingredients. Carrots and onion form the base, which is spiked with dollop of red curry paste, and then pureed into silky oblivion. Once pureed, you can flare it out with whatever you have on hand for the toppings. This is a soup we make often, and it was my special request after a tooth extraction this week. I'm short one wisdom tooth thanks to a brawny, bee-keeping oral surgeon, and I ate a lot of this soup in the days following. It reminded me how much I enjoy it. If you decide to give it a try, there are a couple considerations...

A Simple Carrot Soup Recipe

- Carrots: You can use bushy-topped farmers' market carrots or regular orange carrots. I personally prefer the heirloom farmers' market varieties, but this soup is delicious with just about any carrot.

- To peel or not: Part of what I love about this soup is the silky texture, and there are a few things you can do to go from really good to exceptional. If you take the time to peel your carrots, it smooths things out beautifully. That said, I make it often with peels on.

- Blending technique: The quickest and easiest way to puree this soup is with a simple hand blender. It's how I've made this soup for years. That said, if you have powerful blender at your disposal, this is the time to break it out. Recently, I started to use our fancy ultra-powerful juice blender for this soup. Blend for a while. Completely worth the clean-up effort.

Thanks for all the nice words - the extraction actually wasn't that bad! No swelling, and aside from gargling with a lot of salt water, things were mostly back to normal the next day. Thankfully!

A Simple Carrot Soup

2 tablespoons unsalted butter or extra-virgin coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
scant 1 tablespoon red curry paste, or to taste
2 pounds carrots, peeled and chopped - 1/2-inch chunks
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, or to taste
1 1/2 cups / 360 ml of water, or to cover
1 lemon or lime

to serve (topping ideas): micro greens / cilantro, chopped, toasted almonds , chile oil

In a large soup pan over medium-high heat add the butter and onion. Stir until the onions are well-coated, and allow to saute until translucent, a few minutes. Stir in the curry paste, and then the carrots. Allow to cook another minute or two, and then add the coconut milk, salt, and water, adding more water to cover if needed. Allow to simmer until the carrots are tender, 10 - 15 minutes, and then puree using a blender or hand blender until the soup is completely silky smooth. This next part is important (with any soup) - make any needed adjustments. Add more water if the consistency needs to be thinned out a bit. After that taste for salt, adding more if needed. I also like to season this soup with a great big squeeze or lemon or lime juice. Serve topped with whatever you have on hand - I like it with a little something crunchy (almonds), and a lot of something green (micro greens & cilantro).

 Christopher Bailey to cut all ties with Burberry Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Christopher Bailey, who stepped down as chief executive of luxury goods group Burberry in July following investor unease, is to leave the company entirely by the end of next year.

Shares in the business, renowned for its trenchcoats and distinctive check patterns, fell more than 2% initially, although they were later down just 0.3%.

Bailey was credited with helping transform Burberry from a small UK company into a global fashion brand, building up its digital presence by streaming its fashion shows live and redesigning its flagship stores.

Bailey will receive his salary, pension and contractual cash allowance and non-cash benefits until the end of 2018 but no cash bonus will be paid for the period after March. He is surrendering various share awards given as part of the company’s incentive plans, which are worth £16m at current prices.

Bailey has been at the company for 17 years and its chief creative designer since 2009, and in May 2014 he also became chief executive following the departure of Angela Ahrendts to Apple.

Investors initially backed Bailey in his dual role, but anxiety over his leadership began to grow, following flagging sales, especially in key markets such as China and the Middle East. There were also protests against his pay packet, which rose from £1.9m to £3.5m last year, while he also received £10.5m in shares in July.

As a result Burberry appointed luxury goods veteran Marco Gobbetti as chief executive, with Bailey given the title of president to add to his chief creative officer role.

Now in a statement Burberry said Bailey will step down in March 2018 “to pursue new creative projects”, but will provide support to Gobbetti until the end of next year. Gobbetti has been with Burberry since January although he only formally took over as chief executive in July. Sources said the two had been working together on strategy, but now Bailey felt with the new leadership in place it was time to move on.

Bailey said the decision to leave “was not an easy one.” He added: “ I do truly believe, however, that Burberry’s best days are still ahead of her and that the company will go from strength to strength with the strategy we have developed.”

Gobbetti said he was sad “not to have the opportunity to partner with [Bailey] for longer” but he had enormous confidence in the company’s future.
