It all started with this glorious cake…studded with berries and fresh-from-the-garden flowers, the moment I laid eyes on it (somewhere on Pinterest?) I fell in love with whoever designed such a quintessentially summer creation. Thankfully, I was able to track it down to France-based stylist/cook /food blogger Mimi Thorisson…whose site, Manger, is brimming with equally jaw dropping culinary creations, all beautifully captured by her photographer husband Oddur Thorisson. Oh, and did I mention that Mimi is not only incredibly talented, but looks like a model, too? That’s right, life’s not fair. Keep reading for a few of my favorite features, and hop on over to see them all for yourself.

And lest you think that Mimi is all sweet…Manger is full of savory delicacies like these oysters, too!
