At the very edge of the city there’s a small park that I often walk through or sometimes we have spontaneous picnics in where we drink bottles of champagne. My favourite part of the park is the geometric water feature from the 80’s that offers curtains of mist that you can stand in the middle of. One day a friend of mine pointed out the rows of rosemary that lined the footpath. I was...
Cloudy With a Chance of Pancakes
Sometimes it’s nice to sleep with food too.
A couple of years ago some of my friends gave me a hot pot for my birthday. This year for my birthday we made a hot pot feast. We sat amongst mountains of mushrooms, lotus root, greens and wagyu, passing each other pieces of broccoli, handfuls of noodles and dishes of sauce.
We are very pleased that Condiment has found a home in Barcelona in the Llibreria of CASA MARIOL, the wine bar and food store of a family owned winery of the same name, based in the Terra Alta region of Catalunya, Spain. We hope to visit them one day but for the time being we’ll have to be satisfied by their quite amazing website.

Indoor Picnics & Outdoor Carpets

We sat under the stars, ate tortillas, and lounged around as if we were on her...
Gallery Trax — Photo Diary
In late August we made a long awaited pilgrimage to Gallery Trax. Cameron hired a car and drove above the speed limit at all times. The car looked like a pink rice bubble. It had been raining heavily. We got lost. Cameron looked to the earth for answers. We met a handsome dog. Poetry was everywhere. There were beautiful paintings by Ai Sasaki. Kain and Fi were there. ...

There are different kinds of cookie people. Their tastes range from the crunchy to the soft because people, too, are cooked in a variety of contexts. Cookie compatibility is, of course, a cornerstone of any friendship and is crucial to ensuring that freshly baked situations don’t end in disaster. My favourite thing you can order at the Albion are the giant cookies, delicious and...
