Happy Sunday! Here’s a food-inspired minimalist lego creation by Luca: “I thought it would be interesting to create items in the least amount of pieces. A whole breakfast in 8 pieces! Enjoy!”
……. and while you’re enjoying this brunch creation, browse these brunch-y links from the archive. [Geez — I’m getting hungry, I think I’m in dire need of some shakshuka! :)]
The scene at Jane (cafe/bakery/eatery on Fillmore St.) as sketched by 2 young patrons 🙂
Luca: “My dad took me and Matteo to Jane on a work meeting and this is what I saw. (Just a small note… Aaron is my dad’s work friend). When you really look around you can see all sorts of things you didn’t see before. The most unusual thing I saw was a buffalo head hanging on the wall. I had a cinnamon roll and it was just how you would expect at a cafe… good!”
Matteo: “It’s yummy!”

A little doodle to remember all the yummies on our adventure to Destination Baking Co. in Glen Park (SF)! Alas, we didn’t have time to try all of them, but we’ll be back. The kids give a big thumbs up to the carrot cake.
Clockwise from bottom center: Lemon Curd Tartlet; Pecan Tassie; Yellow Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting; Banana Cream Tartlet; Carrot Cake; Marzarin Tarlet (Almond Paste and Raspberry Jam)
Luca has gotten the portrait drawing bug lately, so I nudged him this last week to draw a chef-y subject to add to his growing portfolio. This is Chef Danny Bowien from Mission Chinese Food and the original photo appears in the book “Edible Selby“. Love this so much! 🙂
Luca: “This picture was from Edible Selby and I thought it looked interesting . I forgot his name so now I call him “spicy pretzel arm man”.
There’s always hot sauce on our table and usually some sketching going on so it was only a matter of time before the two collided. Here’s a sketch by me, one by my hot-sauce lovin’ hubby, and two by Luca who won’t eat hot sauce, but will happily take its portrait.
