Papier always feeds our curiosity and musings with its designs, collaborations and in-house collections. Today is no different. Together with food writer and cook Skye McAlpine, Papier has launched a variety of pieces consisting of a recipe journal (£24.99), menus (from £17.50 for 10), place cards (from £12.75 for 15) and notecards (from £20.00 for 10) with the design referencing Skye’s beautiful, hand-marbled paper that was the inspiration for her latest cookbook (which we’ve all devoured, right? The spaghetti with creamy lemon sauce is divine).
Skye’s love of hosting is at the heart of the collection: ‘My happiest place is sitting round a long table filled with friends, old and new, eating and chattering, indulging in each other’s company: this collection is a celebration of that and includes those small details (menu cards, place cards and thank you notes) which make even the humblest kitchen supper feel like a special occasion’.
Squeezing friends and family round a table filled with easy, life-enriching food is what Skye loves most, and what better way to jot down those recipes than in the collection’s ‘Food for friends’ recipe journal, in which you are spoilt with specific sections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are also pages to jot down your favourite ‘stores to support’ and ‘places to eat’. The aim is to help you cook for friends and family in a relaxed manner, providing a paper home for favourite ingredients, local go-tos and those recipes passed down and handed on.
Papier has sorted out the perfect gift for your favourite foodie – personalise the journal and notecards to add that personable touch. If you’ve been looking for somewhere to curate your own cookbook and collect together your happiest culinary memories, you’ve come to right place. You can shop the beautiful Papier x Skye McAlpine collection here from today.
A final word from Skye: ‘Above all, I believe food tastes best when you share with others’. I think we can all totally agree.
