My favorite spots for tea and homemade cakes in Paris

After watching Beyoncé’s and Lady Gaga’s new video, “Video Phone”, you feel like moving, putting more make up on and rethinking your sense of dress.

A PRIORI THÉ, 35-37 Galerie Vivienne, 2ième Paris
CAFE DE L’HOMME, 17, Place du Trocadero, 16ième Paris (best on Fridays and Saturdays)
CAFE DES DEUX MOULINS, 15, Rue Lepic, 18ième Paris (this place got famous because the French movie Amélie was made here)
MARRIAGE FRÈRE, 30-35, Rue du Bourg-Tibourg, 4ième Paris (buy the candles for your travel and think of Paris )
BRASSERIE BALZAR, 49, Rue des Ecoles, 5ième Paris (I love the interior)
LES CINQ SAVEURS D’ANADA, 72, Rue du Cardinal Lemoine, 5ième Paris (one of the view organic restaurants in Paris, very lovely)
LE BAR DU MARCHE, 75 Rue de Seine, 6ième Paris (it is always busy)
MANIE GATEAU, 66, Rue du Cherche-Midi, 6ième Paris (my favorite cakes)

My favorite müsli recipes

Twenty years later Mamma Accordi and her talented son cooking together at the Four Seasons Hotel in Prague, the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Eastern Europe.
Andrea Accordi’s family in Capri – mother Teresa, Matteo, Maurizio, Diana, Alessandro and Andrea wearing glasses.
This week, IRMA introduces her favorite pieces from the spring/summer collection 2010 on Among her must-haves for the upcoming spring season are a simple Stella McCartney denim skirt, a striped Marc Jacobs tunic that can be worn as a mini dress, honey yellow, strappy high-heel Jimmy Choo sandals, and an eclectic Lanvin brooch to add flair and sparkle to ballet flats or a simple canvas tote.
After a long winter it is time to think about spring. Look at your clothes from last summer season and see how you can optimise for example your favorite trench. Get inspired by the new Burberry Prorsum Collection and do it yourself.
Watching the Prada show for autum/winter 2011 makes me think of long walks in the woods wearing fragile dresses with patterns reflecting light and nature, coming home with rosy cheeks.
The other day at the Proenza Schouler show in New York.
The music makes me wear this dress.

Isabel Marant fall/winter collection 2010/11
This collection makes me think of Marilyn Monroe. I imagine hanging out in my bungalow in the Hollywood Hills, reading a book by Françoise Sagan.
I will see the dancer Carolyn Carlson dance at the Chaillot Theater in Paris, from March 18 to 20.
The Grand Tirolia Resort in Kitzbühel offers the perfect breakfast for skiers in the morning: fresh fruit, homemade cereal, the finest ham, cheeses and homemade bread. But best of all are the chef’s cereals. Note those recipes which give you all the energy for a day outside.

Bircher Müsli

500 gr rolled oats
2 liters milk
5 apples
250 gr coarsely ground almonds
Orange juice
3-4 bananas

Soak the oats in milk, add grated aples. Roast the almonds in a pan until golden, then add them to the oats and apples. Season with 3 or 4 tablespoons of honey and add ca. 150-200 ml orange juice for a fresh, fruity taste. Let the mixture soak over night. If required, fold in some freshly whipped cream the next day (made from ca. 500-750 ml cream). Add some chopped bananas just before serving.

Knusper Müsli

750 gr sunflower seeds
500 gr rolled oats
Brown sugar

Roast the oats and sunflower seeds with some 100 gr brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of honey at low temperatures until golden and let them cool off. If the mixture sticks together, break up with a spoon. Enjoy with joghurt of your choice.
