Art - Mother Nature

Roses straight from the garden. 

Food - Lunch at Craig Millar - St. Monans, Scotland

Want a great lunch? Here in the East Neuk we not only celebrate events, but we eat Saturday lunch at Craig Millar because it's just. so. Good.

 Begin with 44 degree Shetland Salmon - miso caramel, oyster and parsley sauce.
 Continue with Cod - butterbeans, spinach, spiced langoustine bisque.
Finish with
Panna Cotta - apple puree, caramel ice cream.

All made in house. All created by Craig Millar, the man with the inventive mind, the luxurious taste buds.
Have this Saturday lunch while you gaze at the weather movie going on outside, The Firth of Forth and The Bass Rock emerging from the storm.

2 AA Rosettes.

Art - Current Project - 27 John Street Cellardyke, Scotland

27 John Street

There is John Street and James Street, and then of course George Street. All the houses are built tight into the winding narrow passage. Number 27 is one of the few with a stairway, and like a Haiku, so small they constitute one mighty move. This move will be to blow open the view to the Firth of Forth: 2 floors, a loft and a Bulthaup kitchen.

The living floor from the front door before the wall is blown out....from the Front Door - it is small.
The Forth is calm, for the moment. It's said one's neighbors begin calling up the street as the dolphins move west. 

Bed and bath level with fireplace for Danish wood burning stove.

Space for office looking over the Forth.

Area to the left will be main bath.
Wall gone.
View back from the garden.
The "wee hoose" from the beach in the village of Cellardyke, another brilliant spot in the East Neuk of Fife.
