homemade baked bread
I love using terracotta pots to cook over my gas cooker, as I find it gives the dishes an additional delicious flavour. Other than baking on a clay pizza peel, I haven't baked bread inside a terracotta pan before. I am excited by using the Mason Cash 34cm unglazed Terracotta Bread Form, I can bake bread at home inside a terracotta pan. I found using the terracotta bread form gave the baked bread a delicious flavour, and it smells fabulous.

Zazen Bear: An Oasis of Peace in Manhattan

Everyday life in this technology driven world with millions of stimuli we get everywhere we turn, I find it is hard to find the place and the time to feel peaceful. Zazen Bear, a new Zen retail concept store at 497 Broome Street in New York helps find the moment of inner peace. This is an interesting concept that I hope will come to Toronto.
