foreword I can still remember the first time I stepped into Charlotte’s Rice world. It was years ago at a trade show in Copenhagen. I found myself surrounded by colors, lots of colors. And patterns. Pink plates with polkadots, bowls with flowers, fun textiles and everything that will put a big smile on your face. I remember wondering, who was the brain behind this crazy fun world? Then I met Charlotte a few years later in New York and I totally understood why Rice is the way it is. Rice is about being playful and real (Just like her). Charlotte is the essence of colorful, a pure joy of life and I’m so happy that she stepped into the food world with this book. I love her mantra PLAY TOGETHER - STAY TOGETHER. It’s really all about love, and food is love, no doubt about it. It doesn’t matter if you are making a simple Tuesday night dinner or having a party: It’s all about pleasure, love and creating. I love inviting people over to my house. I often give them a chopping board, a knife and a glass of wine. I do think chopping goes better with a glass of wine! And just because I invite you to dinner does not mean I have to do all the work! Right? I’m so happy to see Charlotte’s ideas for this book, just up my alley. I’m someone who thinks food and crafts go hand in hand (as I try to show in my magazine), and am so excited to see that in this book. I grew up in a family where cooking was one of the highlights of the day. My grandmother did most of it and she let me help. So from an early age I could make homemade tomato sauce, bake bread and whip up the occasional chocolate cake. So my mantra is LET YOUR KIDS HELP (They might grow up having their own magazine). So, send out the invites, make a playlist, buy some food and lets have a party. And make my lemon and feta dip, you can find it on page 115. It’s a winner! Happy Party!
