"These treats are totally unlike the marshmallows many grew up eating. They’re silky and pillowy soft. Cut into cubes, they are boxed tightly with complex flavors. Encompassing a range––from warm and gentle to citric and biting––the flavor profiles are fearless." — L&T Contributor @ndbeam ⠀ —⠀ In Sanford, Florida, Nathan and Jenn Clark bring true love to a traditional treat with @wondermade Marshmallows.

"Today, Zak Stern’s Miami bakery is evidence of this simple desire. Stark white walls and clean wood seating make it clear that the focus is on the bread––thick, crusty slices, creamy inside and a crust with perfect crunch. The type of bread you imagine pulling from the oven when you make your first loaf. The type of bread you make with your hands." — L&T Contributor @ndbeam ⠀ —⠀ For his Miami, Florida-based bakery, @zakthebaker , owner Zak Stern went to great lengths to cultivate his craft.

"For the most part, food would really facilitate these big discussions...This is very relevant now to discussions we’re having; but it allowed women, when they talk in this way, to figure out their own sexual boundaries before ending up in a situation. These women were expressing their likes and dislikes and feelings, and really figuring it out. Especially before SATC, women were not encouraged to figure that stuff out." — Jennifer Armstrong, author of Sex and the City and Us. — Today on lifeandthyme.com: Author @jmkarmstrong discusses the lasting cultural significance of Sex and the City on the food scene, in New York and beyond.

"Sex and the City was about so much more than lust; at its heart, the show was about love and friendship. And what friendship can exist without the conversations that take place over food? In the SATC universe, it’d be hard question to answer, as almost every major scene included eating, drinking or both. Important discourses took place over dishes of eggs, juicy dating details spilled over slices of New York pizza or straight-from-the-sidewalk-vendor pretzels, and of course, those cotton-candy pink cosmos and cutesy Magnolia Bakery cupcakes." — L&T Senior Editor @slferrari — Today on lifeandthyme.com: Author @jmkarmstrong discusses the lasting cultural significance of Sex and the City on the food scene, in New York and beyond.

But with deeply sturdy roots and carefully measured growth, it’s easy to imagine the future of Utterly in full bloom." — L&T Senior Editor @slferrari ⠀ —⠀ With the Nashville-based @utterly_nash , Mayme Gretsch cultivates a line of pastries rooted in expert culinary technique and dedication to quality.

Such an ap-peas-ing season. — Photo by @foodbymaria from the #lifeandthyme global Instagram community.
"While our noses distract us, Mortarotti prepares the counter to make her Lime Mint Sorbet. She approaches the process like a painter, the base her blank canvas. She adds sugar to the water and begins zesting the limes. Citrus pierces the air and lingers as she sprinkles fresh mint into the pot." — L&T Contributor @janedekim ⠀ —⠀ Simplicity and seasonality set the tone for Los Angeles’ @carmelaicecream.

"Today, after the sea bass nets are set, Fukushima will pull rock crab traps, but throughout the year, they’ll catch swordfish, shark, tuna, opah, dorado, yellowtail, and other local ocean-dwellers. Much of it will travel less than a mile once onshore, straight to the walk-in cooler at Ironside." — L&T Contributor @emilie__c ⠀ —⠀ Today on lifeandthyme.com: In San Diego, Chef Jason McLeod works directly with local fisherman to develop his seafood-centric menu at @ironsideoyster , promoting awareness and sustainability of the area’s industry.
