The French butter dish design is thought to have originated in Vallauris, an area in south-eastern France known for its pottery. Its unique design keeps butter at the perfect spreading consistency, with a base that holds water, creating an airtight seal. Keeps butter fresh for around one month if temperatures are below 27°C and the water is changed regularly.
By Lassen is a Danish design company founded by Mogens Lassen, an award-winning architect devoted to continuing the Danish tradition of good design.
With a sharp sense of contemporary Functionalist style, Mogens Lassen designed the iconic Kubus candleholder in 1962, a piece once reserved solely for family and close architect colleagues. The Kubus is still crafted in Denmark, and among architects and design connoisseurs it has acheived the status of a modern international design icon.
These candles are sized specifically to fit By Lassen Candle Holders. Made from 100% Paraffin Wax, burns for 6 hours.
When Toronto native Colin Webster was living in Spain with his family, he discovered the best olive oil he has ever tasted. Made from 100% Arbequina olives in North-Eastern Spain, the region is known for its powerful sun, rich slate soil and fantastic wines. Arbequina olive oil is known as one the most flavourful and elegant olive oils in Spain. Les Sorts has received both a gold and silver medal at the Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil competition.
Intense aroma and green grassy in colour, this cold-pressed (allows for a fruitier flavour) olive oil is smooth and beautifully balanced between sweet and peppery.
