Eat/share/listen with Emilie Guelpa

I’ve been a fan of Emilie’s beautiful blog, Griottes, for a while now – her styling and photographs are so beautiful to look at.

Rachel Khoo - Emilie Guelpa books

I love looking through Emilie’s beautiful books for inspiration!

Recently, Emilie has published a book comprising her incredible ideas for table settings into one stunning collection. Despite the book being in French, I think you can still appreciate and be inspired by the artistry, and translate Emilie’s fab ideas into your own home, photography, art or dinner parties (or whatever takes your fancy!).

Over to you Emilie…

(eat) my fail-safe dish…? Pies!!! All the pies! Savoury or salted, and sweet ones with fruit, chocolate, raspberries or a blackberry coulis (for example)… I think it can be a quick and easy way to eat healthy and fresh! Especially when there’s an infinite number of compositions.

(eat) favourite restaurant/cafe/bar and why…? Septime in Paris! I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. The simplicity and at the same time the complexity of flavors, the atmosphere, the team – the new beautiful kitchen is so poetic and yet accessible to all. The best restaurant in Paris for me!

(share) can’t get through the day without… Being near to flowers, and checking my phone… 100 times a day! (Though that’s not a good thing!)

(share) recent inspiring find I’ve discovered online… I recently discovered the beautiful blog Moly, I love the atmosphere – simple, real. I devour this blog as if it was a friend who cooked some cakes around his pretty table. Very refreshing!

(listen) a tune I turn up on the radio… I love listening Of Monsters and Men, an Icelandic group. The melodies carry me! In particular: King and lion heart:

(listen) a quote that resonates with me… “Va, vis et deviens” in English: “Live and Become!”. Not related to the film, but this quote speaks to me. One day, you have to start without looking back, learn, make mistakes, but always try to become what you want. Travels, experiences, meetings, every little plot itself is built of what we live!

Thanks so much for sharing with us Emilie! If you like what you’ve seen here, check out Emilie’s blog. You can find Emilie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest – you can also find her beautiful book ‘Tables de Fêtes’ online (note the book is in French).

  1. Hi Rachel.

    I absolutely enjoy your style and creativity.

    Is it possible to be a guest on one of your shows in France? I am an extremely keen cook and enjoy entertaining and cooking for others.

    It would be such an honour and inspiration being on your show.

    Looking forward to your response.



    1. Hi Rani thanks so much for your message. I don’t have any plans to do another show in France at the moment, but thanks for your interest!

      Best wishes

  2. Hey,

    Loving Molly’s blog and I have a feeling I’m going to be on my iPad a while now reading through her various posts!!

    Hope you’re loving Melbourne – loved A Cook Abroad!
