Focaccia 2 way

Best focaccia you'll ever taste. I love Yotam Ottolenghis cooking, it's easy, simple and so yummy. I was greedy and wanted to try two toppings, and I did. I chose the parsley and olive topping and the grape and fennel seed topping. I have to say that both taste amazing, try them together and you'll get flavors that compliment each other, salty (olives) and sweet (grapes and sugar), chewy (grapes) and crunchy (olives and fennel seeds). And the smell of fresh bread baking is truly amazing. I enjoyed making it as much as I enjoyed eating it. Here are the ingredients you need from Ottolenghi's site, and here is how to make it. If you love to cook I recommend to get the book, it's wonderful.

Nature's color combo

Amazing color combinations created by nature. I've found the leaf above while walking this morning, it caught my eye between hundreds of other leaves laying on the road. One of my jobs as a graphic designer is creating color combinations that work well together and are pleasing to the eye. Getting inspired by nature is a great way of finding new ideas.

Dudamel & Beethoven

We went to see Dudamel & Beethoven last night at the Hollywood Bowl, it was truly magical. Thank you Maurice for the lovely evening.
