I mean, I celebrate coffee most days. But apparently yesterday was coffees official day in the sun! ⠀ ⠀ In honour if one of my favourite beverages a photo of me enjoying my own sunbeam and a cup of the magical elixir in one of my favourite secret NYC coffee patios. ⠀ ⠀ On another note, I am writing up some coffee related articles for @saveurmagazine, so stay tuned for some more coffee themed content! ⠀ ⠀

28? Is that you I see? Its going to be a good year, I can feel it. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

27⠀ Started it off with the van life in California, swam with best friends in Tofino, hiked to mountain cabins for christmas fires with family, lived in Hawaii for a month, lived in Korea for 2 months, lived in NYC for 7 months. And all the million moments in between. ⠀ ⠀ Became a chef, became a fiancé, became obsessed with living all around the world. ⠀ ⠀ Cheers to you 27, you were a grand adventure. ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp

Thank you for all the birthday love and good vibes sent my way. They were received and felt and warmed my heart!! ⠀ I am beyond grateful for such wonderful people in my life.

Eye Spy with my little eye... ⠀ A new adventure approaching. ⠀ ⠀ Culinary school may be done, but my learning isn’t. ⠀ ⠀ You can find me at @saveurmag head office Test Kitchen for the foreseeable future!! ⠀ ⠀ 📸:@davidkarp⠀ ⠀

“We walk up the beach under the stars. We feel stretched, expanded to take in their compass. They pour into us until we are filled with stars, up to the brim.⠀ ⠀ This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy—even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.” ⠀ ⠀ ― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea⠀

You cant tell. But in this photo we are actually fully drenched in sweat. I mean DRENCHED. Like walked into an ocean. Oh NYC, you hot hot humid sweatbox you. Not all photos are what they seem 😂. ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp

Now thats NEXT LEVEL Farm to Table. ⠀ Vine to mouth. ⠀ ⠀ And yes. I literally have a bucket TIED to my waist for maximal raspberry picking efforts. Duh. ⠀ ⠀

Looking ahead to see what could be down the road for me...⠀ ⠀ I had a blast talking with Mike on the @whentojump podcast. We talked about how for the first time in my life, during culinary school, I stopped setting goals and looking towards to future and planning every detail to just focus on what was right in front of me. I had no idea what came next. I fully immersed myself and focusing on just being present in what I was doing this moment. ⠀ ⠀ It felt weird and uncomfortable. ⠀ ⠀ And likely the things that feel weird and uncomfortable are exactly what you need to be doing. ⠀ ⠀ The podcast is live today. Check it out. Link in Bio. ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp ⠀ ⠀

How did I become a Chef?! WHAT!? Also, how did I end up on a podcast!? WHAT!?⠀ ⠀ Mike Lewis and I had a fun conversation together about life, lessons learned in sport and how they translate to the kitchen, and how I decided to take the leap and go to culinary school on his podcast @whentojump ⠀ Check it out! Have a listen. Share around. Anything your heart desires. LINK in my BIO.⠀ ⠀ 📸:@davidkarp⠀ ⠀

Now they were beginning Chapter One of the great story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before. 💍 - C.S.Lewis

Cheers to you Canada. To a country filled with glorious landscapes and beautiful people. ⠀ ⠀ This is the first Canada Day that I have not been IN canada for, and it sure does make me miss home today. Wherever I go, I am always proud to call Canada home.⠀ ⠀ Now I think its time to make some Americans drink ceasears and sing O'Canada eh?⠀ ⠀ #TrueNorthStrongAndFree #OurHomeAndNativeLand⠀ 📸: @noellejonesart

Never let anyone tell you what you can or cannot accomplish in life. You may surprise yourself. #olympicday 🇨🇦

Its a safe bet that if you see me in NYC, ill have a cup of coffee in my hand. ⠀ ⠀ 1: Because I love great coffee⠀ 2: Because I am a painfully slow coffee drinker. Ask anyone who knows me. I like to savour every sip! ⠀ ⠀ My faves so far in NYC are: ⠀ @hungryghost@Cafegrumpy@tobyscoffee@lilsister⠀ ⠀ Any coffee suggestions for me to try??⠀ ⠀

Cheers! We survived another week! We deserve that rose.⠀ ⠀ This week we made: ⠀ 6 types of ice creams⠀ 4 sorbets ⠀ 2 granitas ⠀ 288 scones ⠀ 6 dozen bagels⠀ 15 loaves of bread ⠀ Cinnamon buns, Cakes, pies, puddings, parfaits. ⠀ 50 crepes ⠀ Some epic focaccia ⠀ About 100 pizzas ⠀ ⠀ Phew. ⠀ ⠀ Whatever your week entailed, im sure you deserve a glass of rose too! As the brazilian girls say, Sauje (to health).

I ADORE secret speakeasy type bars. I am not a big drinker, but if I am going to have a cocktail, id really like it to be in a secret walk through the kitchen of a restaurant, unmarked door, down a back alley type of establishment! ⠀ ⠀ They make you feel like no one in the world can find you if they tried! ⠀ ⠀ I am afraid I cant tell you where this one is, or it wouldn't be a secret anymore would it? ⠀
