Flourfree Almond-Carrot Cake

Since I am in Beijing I tried a lot of different carrot cakes - with or without frosting - and they were all different. Some were too sweet, some too firm, some too dry, but the best and perfect one I ate was at Dareem Cafe in Sanlitun South. Therefore my goal was to make a carrot cake which was at least as delicious as Dareems'. It is the first carrot cake I made - Maika gave me the recipe - and it was simply delicious: succulent and just perfect! I did not any topping as it was already delicious, but I think for the next time I'd probably try some walnut cream cheese frosting...we'll see!

And here comes the recipe, inspired from Natalie Eve Garrett 

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups almond meal (or 1 ½ cups ground almonds or other nuts)
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
a pinch of ground cloves
a pinch of salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs
2/3 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 ½ cups carrots (3-4 large carrots), peeled and finely grated (I used a food processor, but you can also use the smallest holes on a box grater. Or, in a pinch, you can buy a bag of pre-shredded carrots at a place like Trader Joes, though they’ll be drier; soak them for an hour or so first!)
2/3 cup raisins (optional)

Recipe

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 9” cake pan with olive oil spray plus a drizzle or two more olive oil; set aside.

2. Combine almond meal (or grind your own in a food processor), spices and baking powder in one bowl; set aside.

3. Beat the eggs (with a mixer fitted with a whisk, or briskly with a fork). Slowly add the raw sugar and beat until it’s thick and ribbon-y. Add in the almond extract and olive oil, keep beating. Ahhhh that gorgeous almond smell!

4. Gently fold in the almond-spice mixture, and then slowly add the carrots and raisins.

5. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Bake for about one hour.

Jiali Art Exhibition at Kocoon spa

Kocoon spa invites you to its Art Exhi­bi­tion by Jiali Art Gallery. The exi­bi­tion presents paint­ings from Seba L’allemand, artist and image maker from France.

His art­work: The Bubble

The bub­ble rises up and is pierced by the tip of the air; the shreds of its for­mer life float­ing down onto the paper.

The promethean dancer may pour his whole energy into reach­ing the height of the bub­ble; yet he will never be able to push his phys­i­cal being when his goal never stops lim­it­ing his move­ments. Seba brings him back to the page where the bub­ble is perched. He places his promethean dancer onto the pho­to­graph and leans over it to stare at what he sees.

Seba stares at the ground to cre­ate a paint­ing which he will name Pinocchio.

From the ground emerge craters and black holes, mete­orites and suns, a head and a body.

Who knows what is cre­ated, if this body and this head are the fruit borne of Seba’s work. Those mate­ri­als that he mixes and kneads, do they pierce the bub­ble and tear the dancer apart?

From the bub­bles that pop, from the dancer who throws him­self, from the paint­ing that emerges from the ground … is this the chain of cre­ation? Are these works of art cre­ated in the same organic way the world was?

The only truth known for cer­tain is the deep and encom­pass­ing unity of these three forces in Seba’s work.

About Seba Lallemand

Artist, image maker — Born in 1973 at Saint Mar­tin d’Hères, France.

Seba Lalle­mand was born in Saint-Martin-d’Hères / France. He spent his child­hood in West Africa (Gabon and Ivory Coast). After his art school stud­ies (at ESAD / Orléans), in 1998, he joined Fab­rica (Italy) directed by Oliviero Toscani where worked on visual projects and was the author of a short film “After­words”, which was pre­sented at the Venice, Rot­ter­dam, Paris, Croa­tia and Rome film fes­ti­vals. Upon his return to Paris, he worked as a video direc­tor on the Gotan Project French Music Award 2002 and also as a free­lance designer. In 2003, he set up “Eye­smile” an adver­tis­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion com­pany in Hong Kong. In 2007, he worked as a cin­e­matog­ra­pher for Wang Bing (Bru­tal­ity Fac­tory), and as a cin­e­matog­ra­pher for Ai Weiwei’s Fairy Tale project in the Kas­sel Doc­u­menta inter­na­tional exhi­bi­tion (Germany).

Since 2009, he is based in Trôo, a troglodyte vil­lage in France… From there, he decided to dis­tance him­self with the dig­i­tal communication…

On a sheet of paper, I’m draw­ing with a Bic and Tipp-Ex… On a sheet of paper or a can­vas, I’m draw­ing paint­ing with ink bub­bles… Some­times I add oil paints or pig­ments… I’m IN PROGRESS… Cur­rently, I’m paint­ing with oil col­ors… When I’m not in the work­shop, I’m tak­ing pictures…”

New at Kocoon spa: Lymphatic Detoxifying Massage

Lymphatic Detoxifying Massage at Kocoon Spa|Did you know every part of the body is influenced by the lymphatic system?  This is because all cells, no matter what their purpose is, need nourishing and cleaning.Our Lymphatic Detoxifying Massage uses controlled pressure on different areas of the body with essential oils, stimulating blood circulation, and helping the body eliminate toxins and excess fluid.  This massage is recommended for people who suffer from water retention, poor circulation, fatigue, and excess toxins in the body, because the lymphatic system has to be in prime condition for the immune system to work properly.

Lymphatic Detoxifying Massage with Kocoon's signature oils - 90 min | 620 rmb

Besides it's relaxing effects, this massage has many other benefits:

Skin care: For a clearer complexion and to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in facial tissue, as well as reducing puffiness around the eyes. Old scar tissue can be reduced while the appearance of new scars can be minimized. It’s commonly used before and after cosmetic surgery.

Detox: At the end of winter, or after a period of high stress, the body will really benefit from lymphatic drainage, to reduce the sluggishness brought on by too many starchy, high fat foods and too little exercise.

Headache: Most headaches including sinusitis have a component of congestion that responds well to   lymphatic drainage.   Once tissue is decongested, blocked fluid and blood flow improve, reducing pain and discomfort.

Promote healing: After surgery or injury, the tissue may be swollen and sore. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle treatment that will help drain the tissue, reduce inflammation and improve healing.

Pregnancy and after: There is often fluid retention in pregnant women and lymphatic drainage can improve comfort especially in legs and feet.  Breast feeding will be enhanced by this treatment, especially when there are problems with blocked ducts and sore tight breasts.

Reduce swelling: After long periods of immobility such as air travel or lessened mobility, fluid tends to stagnate in the tissue making it puffy and tender.

Conditions such as arthritis often have joints that are congested with fluid. All of these respond well when fluid is reduced with lymphatic drainage.

Relaxation: Because it is such a gentle treatment, it is one of the most relaxing.  And the relaxation is enhanced as the cleansing and rejuvenating effects relieve stress.
