A Rare Visit To New Zealand's Gibbs Farm Sculpture Park

It was bucketing down with rain as we drove out of Auckland. I was in New Zealand to cover the Auckland Art Fair, and lucky to have found myself in some pretty unbelievable scenarios over the course of the trip (including my first-ever meeting of a Sir at an art-filled estate, but I’ll save that story for another day).

Miraculously, the clouds parted just as we pulled into Gibbs Farm. Part Jurassic Park, part Westworld, part am-I-still-on-planet-Earth, entry to the private sculpture park caused such a collective jaw drop I’m surprised the car didn’t tip over. 

Lisa's Lunches · Ricotta Bruschetta Two Ways – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

Today our very own Lisa Marie Corso is BACK with another LMC lunchtime classic – bruschetta. Basically, fancy Italian toast.

Lisa loves ricotta. She buys a big tub and brings it into work on a Monday, then somehow weaves it into every meal she consumes that week. Her ricotta bruschetta is so simple it barely warrants a recipe – you can’t really go wrong with toasted crunchy bread and a generous slathering of good ricotta, topped with fresh tomatoes / herbs / zucchini / salmon, and a drizzle of olive oil. Too easy.
