Happy Culinary Day!

Clearly, Etta + Billie is heavily influenced by food. You can smell all the food inspired scents in each of our products. Since it’s Culinary Day I made a recipe round up as an ode to the art of cooking and to share my love for food. It’s also an acknowledgement my two grand mommas Etta and Billie, whose fondness for cooking and baking helped me develop my appreciation to variety of scents.

Grilled Fig with Prosciutto + Halloumi cheese
by Tomayto

Ever heard of Halloumi cheese? If you’re a fan of mozzarella and had some thoughts of grilling it but you know it can’t happen then you should give this a try. Halloumi cheese is sourced from goat, cow, & sheeps milk. It has a high melting point which made it ideal for direct grilling or frying without needing bread crumbs.

Roasted Carrot, Chickpea, + Harissa dip
by The First Mess

I enjoy time with friends and we can spend endless hours chatting away, that’s why I always make sure to have some easy snack recipes on hand. Lay some crackers, toasted baguette and/or fresh veggies on a platter and you’re good to go!

Smoked Ancho Chile Salted Steaks with Drunken Burst Sweet Cherries + Burrata
by Half Baked Harvest 

Not everyone is a fan of spicy food however this recipe will definitely be a crowd-pleaser. The sweet drunken cherries tone down the spiciness of the poblano peppers rubbed to the steak. If it is still too peppery for you, try increasing the amount of Burrata (who doesn’t love more cheese?) which perfectly counteracts hot flavors.

Blueberry Mojito Popsicles
by Broma Bakery

In season blueberries are just awesome. Add a little mint and this will be an absolute dessert slash thirst quencher!
