Clotilde: The wood is the top to an old chest that my sister and I used to store toys when we were kids. I think my grandfather made it. The hinges broke so I’m able to remove the top and use it for photography now
Just found your blog… and it’s so lovely! I’m anticipating I’ll need a lot of time to go delving into all your recipes. Looking at your photo of the farmer’s market finds is like looking at my own kitchen, except my Roma tomatoes and peppers are still green! Of course, I’m just south of you (near Bakersfield, but up in the mountains) and my microclimate means everything is later here, but it’s on the vine! And I’m picking raspberries for my friend at her organic farm Monday.
