Once in a while, I happen upon a blog that I can’t believe exists it’s so good. This was the case yesterday when I discovered Manger. It’s written by Mimi Thorisson, a stunningly beautiful woman of French and Chinese descent who currently resides in the French countryside with her photographer husband, four kids and 14 dogs! She loves to cook and her blog is a curation of her fanciful recipes. Remember when I said I wanted to be Lena. Well I changed my mind. I want to be Mimi. Go get lost in her world!

All photographs by Oddur Thorrison (her husband)

    Wow- her photography is stunning. Absolutely stunning, and yeah- sometimes I come across a blog that is so beautiful it makes me wonder how the person can keep it up. I think I need to take photography classes.

    Hi there. I just found your blog, and I’m already blown away. (And I feel a little better about having three dogs, seeing that you do too and that this stunning, worldly woman has 14.)

  4. She’s a stunner along with that blog of hers! Wowie! Gorgeous works of photography too! Her life, family and food looks amazerrrnuts!

    Some of these photos seem oddly “inspired” by the work of Katie Quinn Davies. If you want to see a truly fabulous food blog, take a look at “What Katie Ate.” Not affiliated in any way, but as both a photographer and a foodie, I was blown away by Ms. Davies’ work. I saw her photos and, for the first time in many years, found myself thinking ‘damn, I wish I’d shot that!’

  16. designstiles says:

    I was jealous of her everything up until the 14 dogs. Imagine all the poop you’d have to pick up. That’s like a full-time job. But I guess in the French countryside I guess even she can poop outside.

    Son of a $*%&#! Why don’t I live in the French county side, look like a supermodel, and eat ridiculously amazing food?!?! You’re right, I can’t believe this even exists and blows my theory right out of the water that everyone has problems. I bet she doesn’t have a ONE! (c; Totally agree that her life looks like a Vogue spread.
