Eat Drink Chic
We're heading into the time of year that Australians commonly refer to as the 'Silly Season'. The Christmas and holiday season is when everything goes a wee bit pear-shaped.. but in a good way. It's my favourite time of year. Something about the mass festivity provides ample heart cockle warm-age. I find even the uber-tacky tinsel laden shop windows and garish clashes of red and green not only tolerable but, strangely, endearing. I feel a particular kinship with the season.

They're easy, can be stored in the fridge for several days; and they can be frozen! Breakfast before school or work, or on the way.

This time at least, I lay testament to an Asian (or at least half of one), Melanie Huynh a Vietnamese-French Voguette working at Paris Vogue. Mélanie works as an assistant stylist at Paris Vogue under the tutelage of the famed Carine Roitfeld (editor-in-chief).
