Luckyday Kitchen!

The beautiful Francina chopping shallots in her tiny Luckyday kitchen.
We made mulled cider soda with a cardamom & sugar rim - holy cow was this fantastic.
The makings of an delicious salad: apples & celery root (which makes me think of Pan's Labyrinth).
There's me in a Utility Canvas apron, contemplating watercress. 
This past Sunday I was lucky enough to go to a supper club/cooking class at Francina Stewart's tiny and adorable Fort Greene apartment. We watched and helped and gaped as she whipped up an amazing meal from scratch. Quail stuffed with Hen of the Woods mushrooms are WAAAY out this girl's comfort zone, but today I found myself eyeing them in the market with a new confidence.

You should get on Francina's website, get on her email list, and go!! Stumped on what to get your friend for her birthday? Take her!! See more pics of the dinner here.
