A cook and a visual artist. In other words Miss Lunch is an ‘artist-cook’!
Miss Lunch gives cooking lessons from home or from PPP, concocts culinary performances and artistic installations as-well as creates new recipes. Today, she’d like to offer you the pleasure of tasting her lunches.
What is her culinary inspiration?
Mostly cosmopolitan, a mixed grill and very globe trotterish, her geography has become very “gourmand”: from her Egyptian Grand Mother’s baklava to her Grand Father’s South African “biltong”, she naturally landed in Paris lured by its renown gastronomy and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
And there’s also… Pantelleria, a very small island, wild and volcanic, situated between Tunisia and the South of Sicily.
Miss Lunch knows this island so well. We have become friends over the seasons. The volcanic earth, the capers, the grapes, the incessant winds and its landscape visited by so many different populations rich in culinary traditions are a continuous form of inspiration.
A diamond hunt across the globe from a Flemish Grand Father, a great uncle who got gobbled up by the Sha of Persia’s tiger, poetic dinners and musical chairs, tamed mosquitoes and foody parents (her Mother sold her tailored suit in order to be able to taste just one more time the lemon tarts of a reputable pastry chef before boarding the boat back home)- this is a brief resumé of fabulous matter that has nourrished Miss Lunch all along her life and that she transposes for you here in her kitchen!
