Breaking Bread With Viva Terra


Copper rose gold and all of its prettiness is having a moment in the design world—from interior décor to the fashion industry. I get nostalgic when I see copper in the kitchen because it reminds me of seeing the hanging pots and pans in our family country kitchen when I was younger. When feasts were prepared for weekend gatherings and seasonal holidays, copper mules, cookware, and utensils could be found throughout the open kitchen. 

VivaTerra is an ethical brand with a passion for mixing nature into a green thoughtful design. The brand has a sustainable approach to design with a kind soul that is shaped by ethical principles. They offer contemporary designs that are made from natural and eco-friendly materials—fittingly the brand name, VivaTerra means "living earth."

The new kitchenware collection has a luxe, yet homey aesthetic; it's handmade in India, and globally supporting artisan craftsmanship. The pieces are made from sustainably sourced copper. I styled some of my favourite pieces from the kitchenware collection, including copperware pieces that are exceptionally stunning to use for testing out a couple of recipes from the new cookery book by Peter Reinhart, The Bread Baker's Apprentice. This is a marvellously detailed book that would be ideal for foodies with a passion for baking.

The book is a very easy to understand with a thoroughly executed guide to bread baking—from elaborate sweet loaves of bread to savoury creations—if you love making homemade dough or want to learn how to make it, then this is a good buy and a proper reference for your future creations. I will share more about my latest reads and top selections at a later date, however, in short, this book exceeded my expectations.

There's nothing like beauty in natural soapstone, especially when surrounded by copper. To bring a colourful ambience into your space for casual settings, using fruit is always a great alternative with décor. I used pomegranates, which are beautifully vibrant but also tasty for holiday cocktails. It was also an excellent addition to the berry-pomegranate pudding that I made, a revamp of this recipe.
