A journey into Zero waste with Bea Johnson

A journey into Zero waste with Bea Johnson

A few weeks ago, on the occasion of Earth Day, we had a chat with Bea Johnson from Zerowastehome.com to learn a bit more about a waste free life. Between two conferences around the world to spread the zero waste movement, Bea was kind enough to give us some insight on how to get started, and with #PlasticFreeJuly coming, we thought you’d love to hear her thoughts and motivations on this matter.   How did your zero waste journey begin? "What triggered that journey was a moving. Between two places we moved to a small apartment and only lived with the necessities, putting the rest in storage. What we discovered then was that life became way simpler and therefore...

The perfect elixir of youth!

The perfect elixir of youth!   Hey kids, do you know what day it is? It’s Saint-Parfait!!! Which means it’s kind of our birthday party! How old are we?

#KimchiParty with Sang-Hoon Degeimbre

Last year, we had the pleasure to talk about fermentation with Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, the 2 Michelin stars chef from L’Air du temps, in Belgium.  We learned why fermentation is so important (to preserve vegetable of its garden), its benefits (perfect to highlight the products and add flavours) and – this is where it gets interesting – what are Sang-Hoon’s favourites recipes! And you know us, we are curious and we are hungry! So we could not resist and ask him to give us a little teaser of its cuisine!  On the menu? A kimchi, and not any kind of kimchi, but two true ancestral recipes from South Korea, where the chef was born! So we went to Brussels,...

HOT AND TASTY what to eat and mostly preseve in 2018!

What’s good with digital age (beside the fact that we get to e-meet you guys) is that we can see all the big food trends coming! From top chefs around the world, to little preservers, each day brings new delicious foods on the spotlight so we’ve round up our top 3 for the year to come!   First one: gut-friendly food Preserving and fermenting have never been so hot. And we’re really happy to see that this is just the beginning of a new era. We’re more and more curious about the virtues of such methods and their benefits. So in 2018, probiotics like Kimchi, kefir, sauerkraut etc. and prebiotics such as onions, garlic and other alliums will be your go...

Baby it's cold outside, let's lagom

Baby it's cold outside, let's lagom

Forget about Hygge, here’s a new and more sustainable way to do cosy. The last couples of years were all about Hygge, (Danish pinnacle of cosiness and warmth ) But thanks to digital age, we’ve been graced by an even better, more sustainable and enjoyable lifestyle we'll all be dreaming of : LAGOM. While the idea of curling up with a hot chocolate by a fireplace is appealing, it’s not the only Scandi philosophy we’re crushing on at Le Parfait. The Swedish cousin of Hygge, LAGOM, which can translate by « not too little, not too much, just right »  seems to be about a simpler way of life, living in a more intentionally...
