Zara Home This season is determined to make us fall in love with his household items and the pieces he has created with reference brands in the sector such as BergHOFF and its iron pots and pans; Bows and their magnificent kitchen knives Y Smeg and its small designer appliances.
To achieve this, it has launched a new editorial in which they have had the participation of Mimi Thorisson, a French cook and writer that triumphs in the networks where it shows its quasi-perfect world of healthy food, big family and idyllic surroundings. Namely, a château in the countryside of Médoc (the Atlantic coast) that is in a perfect state of decay and full authentic vintage jewels.
She and all her surroundings is perfect. It is one of those French that overflow je ne sais quoi For the fourth corners. Even your surroundings have je ne sais quoi; the furniture, the children, the garden, the house, her kitchen and of course herself, because Mimi has the apron as if it were a couture suit.
And with those credentials, yes. It is really very difficult not to want the iron pots, the Smeg juicer, the cooking and serving trays or the tableware.
That we know that we are not Mimi but we dream that the apron (by the way, also of Zara Home for € 15.99) We look as good as her. And if that were not enough, the editorial includes two recipes, a recipe from Baked Vegetables and another of orange pie with fresh figs We reproduce below, in case you feel like trying. And above all, because we still have some @mimithor hit us along the way.
