My Creative Space Tour : Ruth @ Gourmet Girlfriend
This week I spent some time with Ruth from Gourmet Girlfriend.
Ruth absolutely has it all going on. I love her “whole” attitude to food and family. She’s all about the heart!
Ruth’s home is warm and welcoming…just like her! When I arrived Ruth made me a coffee to rival the best barista made cup in town. We sat and solved the problems of the world around her huge and filled-with-family-history kitchen table. Ruth is all about abundance, so of course the coffee is served in a bowl rather than a cup.
I snooped around a bit and chatted merrily about the bits and bobs Ruth has accumulated and the significance of certain items in the home. I loved hearing a little of the whys and wherefores of some of Ruth’s treasures. You can FEEL that each and every member of the family is represented in the trinkets collected and displayed.
As I was there to see the creative space in action I asked Ruth to fire up the stove. I was surprised to learn that Ruth’s dinners are usually a casually thrown together affair. The gourmet nature of the instagram images had me believing it was an all day (and probably the night before affair). Ruth paused for a moment to check the fridge before setting to work.
Ruth proceeded to cook and plate the gorgeous dish in casual, relaxed style. She even rained the fennel and cracked pepper in from a height a-la Jamie which of course made me love her more.
Thanks for having me Ruth…you’re tops. x
