Cooking with Carlienne

We are food people. We love eating, cooking, experimenting with anything and everything related to food. Living in the Bay Area gives us plenty of opportunities to eat well, so we often find ourselves falling in love with a dish and wondering if we can recreate it at home. Not to mention our year around the world giving us pure inspiration to learn how to cook new cuisines. Trying out new recipes can sometimes be a way bigger adventure than planned, so we’re excited to share with you our recommendations and hacks around the kitchen!

Finding the Perfect Ice Cream

With summertime on the horizon, we’re bringing you along on our ice cream adventure as we test various recipes and try to create our perfect ice cream flavors. Follow along on our experiments so that you can learn how to make the perfect ice cream for you and stay up to date by subscribing to our Youtube channel, we post new videos every Sunday morning.

Forget “Recipes”, Try Our Guides

These won’t be the kind of recipes you might be used to, with exact measurements and a step-by-step procedure on what to do. That’s all well and good but our goal is to teach and empower you and your brain in the kitchen.

Anyone can follow a recipe but not many people can cook by feel or know what direction to take a dish if for some reason the flavors don’t quite feel and taste right that day. So rather than call these recipes, they are mere guides for you to achieve the goal we are looking for in a dish. Learning how to successfully save a meal or cook something on a whim or even create your own dish from whatever scraps you have is probably the best skill you can have in the kitchen. This is where all the fun is in the kitchen!

Experimentation and having the confidence to try something will open the world and your kitchen to so many possibilities. Good luck and most importantly have fun!
