Absint

Pentru ca iarna e numai buna de hibernat si anul acesta ne bucuram de una adevarata,cu ger si zapada, profitam si noi de timpul care sta pentru a contura ideile lui 2017 si drumul pe care vrem sa mergem. Absintul a fost cu noi de la inceput si cumva anul acesta pare sa fie light-motivul, asa ca a venit vremea sa il promovam cum se cuvine si sa il numim membru al familiei:)
Disitilat din alcool de fructe (fara zahar), macerat cu plante aromate si medicinale (pelinul este cea care ii da gustul, isop, anason, menta) si distilat inca o data, e o bautura-tinctura pe care noi am folosit-o cu succes ca digestiv, diluata cu apa, un cocktail fin si aromat.

EN: Because winter is perfect for hibernation and this year we enjoy a real one, with ice-cold and snow, we take advantage of the time that has stopped, to drawt the ideas of 2017 and the road we want to travel to. Absinth has been part of our journey from the beginning and it feels that this years it is the highlight, so it is time to properly promote it and name it as a member of the Primitiv family.
 Fruits alcohol , distilled ( no sugar added), in which medicinal and flavored herbs are left to macerate (wormwood is the one giving the taste, anise, mint, hyssop) and again distilled, it is a drink/medicine that we successfully used as a digestive, mixed with water, a fine and perfumed cocktail.

Joie de Vivre

Aura Urziceanu "Dor de viata"
Si-am mai schimbat o cifra spre inca un an, ne-am facut calcule, bilanturi, liste cu ce vrem pentru noul an, am mai umplut o cutie cu amintiri, unii am sarbatorit cu sampanie, cu prieteni, altii in tihna casei...
Pentru noi 2016 a fost o calatorie in Tara Minunilor, presarata cu experiente frumoase, prieteni noi, iar finalul anului ne-a adus cea mai mare aventura de pana acum: un sufletel care ne-a ales sa-i fim parinti si sa impartim calatoria de acum incolo.
Venirea lui pe lume ne-a amintit ca viata e o bucurie, ne-a redat gustul si pofta de a savura totul: aerul rece cu miros de zapada, nenumaratele feluri de mancare, motanul gras care toarce pe fotoliu, lemnul care trosneste in focul din soba, apa vie de la izvor care ne ciupeste de fata dimineata, muzica, iubirea si lumea asta mare si frumoasa!

EN: So, we changed another number towards a new year, we draw the line, made lists with wishes for this new beginning, we filled another memories box, some celebrated with champagne, with friends, others in the warmth of their homes...
For us, 2016 was a travel to Wonderland, filled with beautiful experiences, new frineds and the end of the year brought us the greatest adventure so far: a little soul who chose us to be his parents and to share the path from now on.
His arrival reminded us that life is joy, gave us back the taste and the lust for life and for enjoying everything that it means:  the cold air smelling of snow, all the tasty foods we can enjoy, the fat cat purring on the couch, the wood burning in the stove, the spring water that bites our faces in the morning, music, love and this wide and beautiful world!

Magic Times

Cel mai mult si mai mult imi face placere (de fapt ne face amandurora, atat mie cat si lui Valentin) sa participam la evenimente, targuri si festivaluri si sa interactionam cu oameni noi si luminosi care apreciaza ce facem. Anul acesta a fost incarcat cu experiente minunate si ne-am bucurat sa fim parte din multe intamplari frumoase.
In weekendul trecut am ajuns la Bucuresti, departe de casa, dar plini de energie si voie buna si impreuna cu prietenii nostri de le Primitiv Foods am amenajat un stand cu care ne-am mandrit: cercei, brose, decoratiuni pentru Craciun, lucrate manual, absint natural, distilat cu grija din alcool de fructe si plante culese din natura darnica, miere dulce si parfumata, felicitari mesterite cu drag si un ceai aromat din plante cultivate si culese din flora spontana.

EN: What I love most (actually what I and Valentin both love most) is to be part of events, markets and festivals and interact with new and shinny people that appreciate what we create. This year was filled with wonderful experiences and we were glad to be part of beautiful stories.
Last weekend we went to Bucharest, far from home, but bursting with energy and good vibes and together with our friends from Primitiv Foods we put together a nice stall: earrings, pins, Christmas ornaments, all handmade, natural absinthe, carefully distilled from fruits alcohol and hand-picked plants, sweet and flavored honey, creative cards and a beautifully scented tea, made from garden grown and wild medicinal plants.

The Season to be Jolly







Nici nu stiu cand luna noiembrie s-a topit intr-un decembrie de basm, cu zapada si turturi de gheata. Si mi-am zis ca e momentul potrivit sa scot in lume decoratiunile de brad din acest an. Cumva, stand la tara, inspiratia a venit din multele sate din imprejurimi, cu ale lor casute mici si pitoresti si cu imaginea focului care trosneste in soba pe care s-a toalnit motanul, cu mirosul de paine calda si senzatia de timp care se dilata.

EN: I can't even say when November melted into a fairy tale December, with snow and ice hanging on the roof. And I realized it's about time to take out this year's Christmas ornaments. I believe that living at the country side, I got inspired by the so many villages from around, with their small houses, where the wood fire burns in the big clay stoves, where a white cat purrs lazy and it smells of fresh baked bread and the feeling of slowing down completes the picture.
 Ne-am bucurat de zilele iernatice si am testat putin masina in weekend, urcand pana la proaspat redeschisa Cabana Rarau. Si am faut bine, pentru ca peisajul care ne-a intampinat a fost spectaculos. Padurea de brazi acoperita cu cea mai alba si curata zapada si linistea rece care domnea in regatul zapezii ne-au deconectat pur si simplu de la orice stres sau gand galagios.

EN: We enjoyed the wintery days and tested a little the car this weekend with a trip to the newly re-opened Rarau Cabin. And it felt the right thing, because the landscape we found was spectacular. The pine forest covered in the whitest and cleanest snow and the cold quietness that ruled the ice land took us far from any noisy thought or stress.
Daca ajungeti iarna in Bucovina, nu ezitati sa faceti drumul pana la Pietrele Doamnei si sa mancati un bors de pastrav.
EN: If you arrive in Bucovina during winter time, take a trip to Rarau, it's worthy.
