Remember buttery shortbread from when you were a kid? Soft, yet crunchy, lightly sweet and mildly salty. It is truly a nostalgic flavor, dreamy and comforting! Of course, traditional shortbread is filled with pounds of butter and sugar, so that warm, happy feeling was always short lived.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Valentine’s Day at Pure Food and Wine! Our chefs and staff did an excellent job of preparing and serving incredible dishes, and we were so happy to share the evening with all of our wonderful guests, including this very special guest pictured below!

We have so many creative people here at One Lucky Duck and Pure Food and Wine: actors, artists, comedians, craftsmen, singers, musicians, filmmakers, and printmakers. Now, we can add candlemakers to our impressive list! Juice Bar manager, Helen Michelsen, recently started making her own candles, and offered to make some for One Lucky Duck. We love their soothing scents, and think they’re just the cutest!! We sat down with Helen for an interview about her life, her job at the Duck, and her creative projects, including these One Lucky Duck candles (which are now available at both Manhattan Juice Bars and online at OneLuckyDuck.com)!

We’ve been having so much fun falling in love with it, and we hope you do to!
