The creme of the Brûlé

Papoela,(Poppy ) never misses a trick and always has the last say, as she did today!!!!
WARNING: NON FOOD RELATED POST, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RECIPE STOP READING NOW.

Today we had a visit from a photographer, Steve Stoer, sent down from Lisbon to photograph Casa Rosada, its enviroment and Mein hosts.
Steve Stoer was commissioned by Tyler Brûlé´s magazine, Monocle.
The feature is going to be part of a special edition featuring Dream Businesses. Steve was here for three hours and covered the entire house, inside and out, including the garden, finishing with some portrait shots of the proprietors themselves and Poppy dog had to stick her nose in too!!!!- I cant wait to see if she gets into print!!!?
Monocle is a direct competitor to many glossy Condé Nast titles, but has the cache of being printed on chic matt paper. Its coverage is business, fashion, travel,  and style-conscious urban pursuits such as shopping and fine dining. In a way it is about "everything that is around us", the term Brûlé used to describe Wallpaper, the style bible with which he captured the zeitgeist in 1996, selling it a year later to Time Warner for an alleged $1.7m.

Is this the icing on the cake? Casa Rosada always considered itself the poor cousin!!!!!

  1. Tyler Brûlé´s and Monocle - I am impressed!
    Just read an article about the favourable low if any taxes for retired foreigners in Portugal - it sounds like a tempting offer! And if it means that I an enjoy your fantastic food and wine - it's a given!

    love
