Next to join my Collection of heritage recipes – fig jam!
Nothing is easier than making Jam when you have an abundance of fruit. This is one of the best alternative to eating it fresh. I have to say – figs and plums are my absolute favourite.
Figs always reminds me of the end of summer. It tells me to enjoy the last of fruit picking before it’s pumpkin season! The fig season usually runs from the end of August through to October, depending on the location.
With the aim of repairing the damage caused by the fast fashion industry, some talented and great spirited brands decided to fight against this harmful industry. They have created the slow fashion movement.
Slow fashion is the new trend, what a trend! It teaches us that we can be stylish while being conscientious. The slow-lifestyle is the opposite of overproduction, unfair wages, and everything which can damage our health and the environment. Cool, isn’t it?
Making this list took me a lifetime. Sending emails, scrutinizing websites, checking the certifications, fabrics, factories, etc. All those details are not detailed!
That’s why I am pleased to share my ethical and sustainable fashion directory with the hopes of making it easier for you.

When life gives you plums, make some jam!
Here we are in the plum season – my parents’ trees are full of plums this year! So as always, we keep some to eat fresh, some to freeze (for cakes in the later months) and some to make our jam!
This is real “slow food”; picking the fruits from the tree to eat or cook with… It is also precious, quality family time. I’ve always picked fruits with my mom and these delightful memories will be with me forever. Both of us having fun, talking about everything, laughing…

Gnocchi is on my list of comforting food and it is a safe bet that everybody likes gnocchi, right?!

Following my last trip to Japan, I have developed an addiction for “Melon Pan” メロンパン!
