MALIBU FARM CAFE AT THE MALIBU PIER (LOS ANGELES)

malibufarm1

Swedish born Helene Henderson has a two-acre organic farm in Malibu. For years she has been organizing cooking classes and hosting farm dinners out of her home and recently she has openend Malibu Farm, a cafe & restaurant at the Malibu Pier in Los Angeles. Helene: “We are not a big corporation or funded by investors, we are a locally owned small business. Our food is super simply prepared, there are no secret ingredients. We order everything organic, but none of our local small farmers are certified, and our big suppliers, do not deliver 100% organic 100 % of the time. I naively thought when I opened the cafe, that organics were easy for restaurant to source – it is not. It is a daily and challenging struggle.However we are proud of the products that we serve and believe we put the best possible produce available on every dish served”

sayulita4

This colorful holiday villa, called Casa Dos Chicos, is located right on top of a hill overlooking the Pacific Coast of Sayulita, Mexico. The house has been redecorated using a mix of minimal and clean lines combined with colorful Mexican accessories. Casa Dos Chicos can be rented for events (imagine having a wedding here!) and/or holiday villa accommodating up to ten guests. The property features four beautifully decorated suites, a swimming pool, a tree-top Jacuzzi with ocean views, and a Mexican-style open air living area which includes a rooftop living room and kitchen/dining room dramatically linked by a bridge. Sayulita, which has been called “Mexico’s best kept secret”, is on my list of places-to-go-to. The small charming town with a great vibe has lots of good restaurants and boutiques. You can visit Casa Dos Chicos’ website for more information and bookings.

NOMA OWNER RENÉ REDZEPI’S STUNNING DANISH HOME

modernbarn3

This is the home of René Redzepi, owner of world famous restaurant NOMA. This stunning house in Christianshavn (Denmark), where René lives with his wife Nadine, their three children and his mother in law, was originally used as a smithy. The house has been completely renovated by the family Redzepi, who have been responsible for most of the planning of the redevelopment. It was important that the kitchen was the first to be finalized in the house as they spend much time cooking and having people around for dinner. Both Nadine and René likes to explore antique shops and flea markets, where most of the furniture in the living room was found. The open fireplace, which was originally the heart of the forge, spreads coziness and warmth, but is also used to cook on. The dining room table is custom made by a carpenter, and the bench is purchased antique. The chairs are a mix of Hans J. Wegner Wishbone chair and his CH46 chair. The decorative stoneware is from Danish ceramic artist Aage Würtz. Simply stunning!
