It’s often easier to stay healthy during the summer months. What tips do you have for the winter?
Being healthy and feeling well shouldn’t be something that’s seasonal. We believe in being conscious about the food that we eat as well as focusing on yoga and meditation every day. One of our go-to kitchen staples, Bone Broth, can be enjoyed year-round but is also great for the cooler months as a base for warming soups and stews.It’s rich in amino acids, gelatine, glucosamine, fats, vitamins and minerals. We keep bone broth in the freezer and fridge so it’s easily accessible and can be used to quickly whip up a soup after work. Another one of our winter favourites is Pep-Up Tumeric Tea with giner, tumeric, lemon and cayenne, an immune boosting and energising combination perfect for cooler days.
What makes the perfect dinner party? Melissa:
Friends, family, candle light, a great playlist, jugs of a brilliant cocktail (our favourite 2 are in our book: lavender blueberry or spiced apple punch) and a big spread of homemade delicious, nourishing food all piled on a long table for everyone to help themselves.Jasmine:
Easy homemade food that can be appreciated whilst in full social flow. When you’re in good company it’s nice to be able to focus on preparing, wholesome, fuss-free food such as lovely stews and simple one pot bakes, making it all the easier to entertain. Old fashioned favourites with a twist go down well, like our Shepherd’s Pie with Cauliflower Mash or our Flower Power Pizzas.
Can you share which of the House of Hackney prints is your favourite, and why?Melissa:
There are too many to choose from but that’s the beauty of them! I love the Palmeral print and we wear the apron versions! In terms of apparel, I love the Leonine and Poppium prints. Jasmine:
I love the smell of ferns as they remind me of school holiday trips to Richmond park, and I’ve always had an obsession with Victorian Hot houses. So a sofa in teal Inferno velvet would suit me.
