there were so many highlights from our beauty day and we have loved sharing our recipes, arrangements, and overall inspiration from the day!
one of my highlights of the day was spending the day in the kitchen, cooking up fresh and beautiful food with a group of talented ladies! i spend a lot of time in the kitchen but not a whole day, it was a big treat for me!
many of the attendees asked for this rice recipe and i promised to share, it comes from the Jerusalem cookbook by yotam ottolenghi.
here is a link to the original recipe, i of course had to add some of my own touches!
while this recipe is about as perfect as they come, i wanted to add some spring bounty to the mix since we have so many wonderful herbs and vegetables growing right now.
we added loads of fresh chives, grated carrots, spring onions, and a little bit of cilantro. we topped the beautiful salad with some chive blossoms for presentation. give it a try and add some locally grown goodness to the mix! and enjoy!
