Recipe by: Maya Oren

We were delighted to see Maya Oren's creation for Brightland, using Awake.

On her blog, she shared: "I came home at around midnight, belly full of great salmon and salad, with fresh bread from the farmer's market. We finished our meal with an olive oil cake, filled with ripe peach slices, and my apartment smelled warm as I entered, with notes of stone fruits and grounding herbal undertones..."
