An expert look to organize your kitchen

An expert look to organize your kitchen

Marianne is a Evennou specialist design of small spaces "Smart". The cooked remains one of his favorite rendezvous. Storage, lighting, layout, installation, detour to the kitchen with the interior designer Marianne Evennou, which tells us all for optimized case by case kitchen.

You often work in small spaces, how do you approach the case from the kitchen?

Marianne Evennou: This piece has the most vital function: to feed and share! So I do not hesitate to ask often in the middle of the space. It must radiate.

When there is room, you prefer the open kitchens?

Marianne Evennou: If I can break down barriers, I do, but with an opening which lets out the look. I realize now a kitchen designed as a cabin placed in the large living room with a loft. This comparison gives higher awareness volumes.

The appliances, apparent or hidden in the kitchen?

Marianne Evennou: I am very impressed with these wonderful robots, smart tools for pressing, rolling, crush, heat, grill ... The kitchen is such a special place that it seems legitimate to highlight this little laboratory. Do not show the appliances or dishes would be for me as a library without books.

Do you have favorite colors for the kitchen?

Marianne Evennou: I prefer the soft, muted colors, such as shades of gray and blue. But I made up a lot with the personalities that appeal to me. I try to translate what I perceive them.

And preferable materials?

Marianne Evennou: Always simple enough. I often have budgetary constraints that force me find tips, unexpected materials. I choose them easy to maintain and that age well. I like the sideboards in white tiles or cement, soils powdered steel or polished concrete, or even hand-painted, the concrete countertops, marble or granite from Zimbabwe.

For the kitchen, direct and indirect lighting?

Marianne Evennou: I'm not a fan of bright lights. We need an effective light on the work plan, but I then installs small bright spots for the atmosphere, preferably with a dimmer.

The meals in the kitchen, is a habit that you share?

Marianne Evennou: I always preferred the kitchen to live. I live in a large studio with a rather small kitchen, like a glass box where everyone loves cramming.

The creation of storage is always a complicated step. How do you design for a kitchen?

Marianne Evennou: First I ask my clients all out, keep only the useful items. I do not like hanging cupboards, I do my best to avoid them. So I give them as discreet as possible and I cover everything that is not beautiful. I leave apparent that I find fun and can be staged: the dishes, appliances, utensils. Leave them at hand is like an open invitation to take action.

A welcoming terrace for sunbathing

Hello, we moved in late July 2010. I was looking forward to develop this terrace because I can not stand to see a terrace without plants and without flowers. Last year I first bought the palm tree, he took back the winter and two tall pines. This year, I installed window boxes with geraniums and small tender green pines. Basically I made my vegetable garden (tomatoes, strawberries, peppers and herbs). On the wall, there are lavender, sage and verbena ... What makes me unique and beautiful terrace? Well it is I who have everything arranged and selected, so it is a creative and personal pleasure. And it feels good and I think that's the main thing. Emmanuelle

Cheesecake and poppy my way

Cheesecake and poppy my way

It's been long since I'd not prepared cheesecake, but this time I rather wanted a Käsekuchen as it is called here in Germany.

The recipe is different for Käsekuchen, or cheesecake (similar to the Alsatian view), is used Quark, a fairly compact cheese, not the philadelphia. It also beats the egg whites. The result is sparkling, less compact than a cheesecake, but just as creamy.

Here, the cake is often flavored with lemon and it is not uncommon to put a poppy paste layer. It is then called the Mohn-Käsekuchen. I love it!

Cheesecake and poppy my way

I used a pot of poppy paste purchased in my organic supermarket. If you are looking on the internet you will find recipes to prepare it yourself, it's not complicated.

As my poppy paste was quite compact, I untied with apricot jam (which also allowed me to finish my pot started), but if you do it yourself, it will not be necessary .

Finally, I chose to sweeten my cake agave syrup. I fear it is too liquid, but absolutely not!

Moreover it is frothy, creamy and not too sweet. A real joy ;-)

Cheesecake and poppy my way

1 to 20cm mold:

For the pastry:

  • 200g flour
  • diced butter 100g
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons cane sugar
  • Cold water
  • poppy pastry 140g
  • apricot jam 80g

For the cream:

  • cheese 250g 40% fat
  • lean white cheese 250g
  • 100g double cream
  • Separate 3 eggs
  • 50g agave syrup (or more if you like sweet)
  • 40g cornflour
  • zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar (optional)

Mix the dough ingredients, darken the mold. Cover poppy-apricot mixture.

Mix cottage cheese with cream, yolks and syrup. Add zest and lemon juice, cornstarch and beaten egg whites until stiff. Pour over bottom covered with poppy.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 ° C for 45 minutes. Cool, then chill overnight.
