At Home with Ally Walsh of Canyon Coffee

Our journey into coffee began with a jump start when we accidentally broke our french press one morning, and replaced it on a whim with a Chemex. The contrast in flavor—smooth, clear and sweet compared to the press’s more robust, thicker body—was a pleasant surprise, and we’ve been enjoying the daily pour over ritual ever since.

At Home with Fanny Singer

I met Fanny Singer years ago while working in the kitchen at Violet Cakes in London. Around the same time that Ordinary Habit was launched – a mother/daughter duo founded company – Fanny’s book Always Home was released. Chronicling her world of food, wine and travel, it’s also an intimate portrait of her mother Alice Waters. I was immediately struck by the beautiful nature of their relationship, one that very much reminded me of my own relationship with my mom.

This oxtail stew has been my go to comfort meal for as long as I could remember. My mom would make it all the time (also, oxtail was super cheap back in the day) and provides the warmth and nourishment needed to combat a NYC winter.

Our founder Echo lived in London for a few years, and worked at a most magical bakery tucked away in East London – Violet Cakes. After completing her Master’s degree, she was connected with Claire, and an instant bond was formed. In the years that have since passed Claire, and Violet Cakes, has become renowned the world over, even making Harry + Meghan’s Royal wedding cake. There’s no one more fitting than Claire to share a recipe perfectly paired with Holly Jolley’s Secret Jungle Tea Party. We think our lioness would approve.
