EMILY MORGAN BROWN

Birthed out of a fascination with ancient technique, Emily’s large-scale botanical tapestries are a lesson in history and a record of today.“After I take photos of the flower for the composition, I dry the flower, grind it into pigment, and make it into the egg tempera I will use to paint the linen. The subject lives forever in its painting, using a mostly forgotten process of the Old Masters as well as their technique of painting in grisailles to mimic relief sculpture.The paint is the flower, allowing the flower to live on in its portrait.

ELEGANT MINIMALISM IN A FASHION DESIGNER’S SYDNEY HOME

As the creative director—and cofounder, with brother Marc Freeman—of Camilla and Marc, Australia’s beloved homegrown women’s-wear label, Camilla Freeman-Topper knows how to build an ensemble.

ROASTED VEGETABLE PASTA WITH BASIL AND RICOTTA

COCO LIME SLUSHY

This is my take on a pina colada. I made this drink with more lime than pineapple and used unsweetened coconut milk and lime simple syrup so that I can control the sweetness. I also did not use crushed ice I find it waters it down so instead I froze the coconut lime mixture in an ice cube tray. The cubes are solid but easy to break up in the blender. The result is a slushy coconut lime and pineapple drink that is so refreshing. You can add as much rum as you like or make it virgin, it’s equally as delicious. One other cool thing about this drink is that because the drink base is frozen in ice cube trays you can make 1 or more and leave the rest in the freezer for use later on. Remove the cubes place in freezer bag and store in the freezer.
