    Just a quick question about the Beeswrap. I just bought some this summer, but am finding the beeswax smell (while nice) not always great with the food that i want to cover in bowls. Does the scent wear off, or maybe I just can’t cover all my leftovers with it.
    Thanks and love the blog! Can’t wait for the book.

      I do think the smell becomes a bit less pronounced as time goes on, but I also can’t say it ever bothered me!

    I really like the candlestick – it remind me of Beauty and the Beast strangely. xx
