Support your local craftsmen: pottery by Hartmud (and some words on my breakfast routine)

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Frankfurt, Places · 23 May 2017

A few weeks ago I got to know Jérôme and Isa from the art collection Hartmud, who creates beautiful handmade ceramics in their Frankfurt-based studio. I am introducing you to some of their items on the blog today, and am also talking about granola – certainly one of the best things out there, besides avocado and poached eggs, of course!
