Pretty in Pastel! Your #KSgrams

Soft in color, strong in taste

Pastel colors are as seasonal as summer. Whether you are planning a wedding, renewing your wardrobe, or creating the new cake du jour, you will find it impossible to resist choosing gentler hues. Your mint green pasta dishes, rose pink macarons, and pastel yellow pies gave us a strong taste of your subtly colored creations. Here are your prettiest #KSgrams:

Beat the Heat with Cool Refreshments

Wednesday marked the official beginning of summer for those living in the northern hemisphere. Indeed, in our Berlin-based office at Kitchen Stories HQ, the coffee’s being served cold and the fans are running on high speed. With temperatures topping the 90°F/30°C mark, we all need a little refreshment from time to time. How do you keep yourselves happy and hydrated? Do you infuse your water with fresh fruit, or keep a stack of homemade ice pops in the freezer? We would love to see your best refreshments!
