Why Cardamom & Coconut?
I was born in Paris, France and now live in Dallas Texas since 2004. I have two beautiful girls Livia (two) and Julia (six). Cardamom & Coconut was inspired by my love of two flavors – Cardamom is a spice from India that is found in Chai tea and various traditional dishes, and Coconut is coconut!
This blog is about my interests in sewing, crafts, and photography in everyday life in Dallas, melding my French background with a new American influence.
My new passion for sewing is highlighted in Cardamom & Coconut, where I invent new things with patterns found on the net.
Currently I’m working on a cookbook with my husband (who is the chef of the family) for our daughters as a legacy of their origins and our new culinary discoveries. As the chef is cooking, I document the recipes for the book with my photographs.
