Gluten-Free Chef Caroline Byron Launch Event for New Book Gluten Free, Naturally

On Monday, June 18, gluten-free chef Caroline Byron celebrated the launch of her new book Gluten Free, Naturally, at the Ladurée Private Garden in Soho in NYC. Attendees included actress Ana Villafañe (best known for her portrayal of pop icon Gloria Estefan in the Broadway musical On Your Feet!), designer Carly Cushnie (of Cushnie et Ochs), and Vogue editor Edward Barsamian

At the summer soiree, guests sipped custom cocktails, tried delicious gluten-free canape’s created by Caroline Byron and tasted delectable macaroons by Ladurée. 

After contracting Lyme Disease at the age of 10, Caroline Byron has battled with health problems for much of her life. While this didn’t stop her from forging a successful modeling career and retraining as a chef, Caroline became increasingly frustrated by these health issues. She decided to completely overhaul her diet and go gluten-free. The change in her health was astonishing.

Since then, she has devoted her time to developing a range of delicious recipes that are all naturally free from gluten, showing that you can enjoy a wide range of foods without resorting to pre-packaged ‘free-from’ items. Her skills as a chef and genuine love of food have led her to create a balanced collection of dishes, where the focus is on flavor and enjoyment as well as health. Although she includes healthy broths and probiotic smoothies, Caroline also finds space for her much-loved Gluten-free Fried Chicken and Melting Mac and Cheese, as well as a wide variety of baking recipes. With a huge range of tempting dishes to choose from, you will never feel like you’re missing out.

Caroline Byron is wearing a dress by Emilia Wickstead and shoes by Gianvito Rossi. 

Living Beautifully – Sweet Love Sending from Provence

Today, there is a beautiful story to tell – a very sweet story, full of warm and love. The story is going be told by Bastide.


What is Bastide?


  • A country house in Provence and the beating heart of a French family lifestyle.
  • A beauty & lifestyle brand that invites you to live more beautifully. 100% artisanally made in Provence, 100% non-toxic.

  • A renaissance and homecoming for Frederic Fekkai and his wife, Shirin von Wulffen.

Bastide, a beauty and lifestyle collection inspired by the wellness philosophy of Provence and founded on a commitment to clean, toxin-free living. Created by Frédéric Fekkai and his wife Shirin von Wulffen, Bastide is beauty with a locavore twist.

Born of a deep connection to place, formulated with herbs, flowers, oils and honey from the region’s lush terroir, Bastide’s sensorial products for skin, body and home are all made in local workshops by artisans — category experts whose roots go generations deep.

(Aix Store)

“Life in Aix is very much ‘at ease,’ the epitome of the good life. After spending years in New York, I knew my family and I would fnd renewal, relaxation, and meaningful moments together in Aix.

Our world today is easily overwhelmed with distractions and feeting noise. I believe it is time to slow down, to think deeply about our beliefs in beauty, family, and our environment. We must live well to live more beautifully,  and we’re always able to nourish our spirits and fnd contentment with pleasure when we’re in Provence.

(Aix Store)

Bastide exists to bring rituals of “slow beauty” into the rush of everyday life. It transports the aura of wellbeing that is pervasive in Provence, and that is engrained in the Provençal way of being, into your life and home,” says von Wulffen, explaining that a bastide is a country home where families gather to share good food and laughter, to make memories and enjoy the slow life.

The collection represents a homecoming for Fekkai—and a celebration of his native Aix-en-Provence as he knows and loves it today, where traditionally trained savonniers (soap makers), candlemakers, fragrance noses and glassmakers co-exist with organic chefs and contemporary designers, all intimately engaged with the landscape’s natural elements. Fekkai and von Wulffen returned to their family bastide in Aix with their children and recruited the best of these heritage makers—dubbed Bastide’s Beautisans—to compose and craft the collections’ lotions, soaps, fragrances and candles, and unexpected cult products like scented amber crystals.

To achieve the Bastide promise of living beautifully, every product is formulated in accordance to the brand’s Black List, a rigorous filter of banned ingredients reflecting Fekkai and von Wulffen’s personal standards of better, safer beauty. Bastide follows a strict code of toxin-free ingredients (fragrances exceed the E.U. criteria for safety) and ensures each artisan’s workshop is eco-certified. Bastide also invests in the sustainable growing and cultivating of its locally sourced ingredients.

“Provence taught me from an early age that beauty is more than the product that nurtures your skin,” says Fekkai. “Beauty is also the culture you live in and the environment that surrounds you—the land that awakens your senses, the aromatics that grow in your garden, the atmosphere of serenity you share with the people you love.

“The essence of Provence, and the soul of Bastide, is the sensation of living beautifully— living simply and authentically, fed and nourished within and without.” Shirin vonWulffen



  • 100% artisanally made in Provence
  • 100% non-toxic
  • Formulated with generations of French beauty savoir-faire
  • A commitment to slow beauty and naturality
  • Environmentally kind packaging – minimizing waste with noble, reusable materials


(Beauty + Artisans)



In the true French spirit of buying Bastide’s favorite bread from Bastide’s favorite boulangerie then trekking across town for the best cheese, Bastide works with the best, distinct category experts – not a one-stop-shop factory. From Bastide’s savonnier to Bastide’s fragrance nose to our candle-maker, the Beautisans are single-mindedly focused on their craft, equally well-versed in chemistry, natural ingredients, and traditional recipes.


Manufacturing in Provence gives Bastide access to its unparalleled quality of water, locally sourced ingredients, and uncompromising naturals indigenous to the lush region.


Artisanal in size, but world class in their practices, Bastide’s Beautisans keep the Bastide promise of simple, clean formulas that deliver on their promise.

Here are some products I love and would love to recommend to you

Let’s live beautifully together

  • Fragrances

Created by Bastide’s perfumer in Grasse, France, Frédéric Fekkai and Shirin von Wulffen’s collection of fragrances indulge and surprise your senses with elevated twists on signature notes of Provence. Wherever you are, these sparkling and memorable fragrances will bring you to the good life in the south of France.


In France, nearly all of the figs come from Provence.  Fig trees, with their broad, nurturing branches, dot the lush countryside, yielding juicy, succulent fruit.  Even more celebrated are the sweeping fig leaves that provide a comforting haven of respite, perfect for a mid-day sieste in the shade of the Mediterranean sun.  Figue Amour is a love note to these majestic fig trees whose leaves create a moment of pause for the soul and quiet intimacy with nature.

  • Home Ambiance

What makes a place a home? Sensorial aromas help create lasting memories, shared with those special people. Artisanally made in Provence, home of Bastide’s co-founders Frédéric Fekkai and Shirin von Wulffen, Bastide’s home ambiance candles and potpourri indulge all the senses, for you and your home.


The best seller from Bastide’s heritage Côté Bastide collection, these beautiful potpourri crystals (called “Amber Gold” in French) are infused with Bastide’s signature Ambre fragrance and have enchanted homes for a quarter century.

  • Hand & Body

Bastide pampers you head to toe with luxuriously simple, naturally potent products made by artisans in the south of France, using local ingredients and always 100% non-toxic, for indulgence without moderation. Enjoy a generous selection of sulfate-free, paraben-free, silicone-free hand wash, hand cream, body lotion, body oil, body wash, and soaps chosen by co-founders Frédéric Fekkai and Shirin von Wulffen.


Ideal for sensitive or dry skin, this body wash is extra gentle and pampering. Be kind to your body and skin and trade the typical, chemical-heavy shower gels that dry out your skin for this gentle body wash made with Provence olive oil and coconut oil. A silky, gentle formula that glides and cleanses, leaving your skin soft and supple. Artisanally made in small batches (soap cauldrons) without SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). The fragrance blooms in the shower, delicately scented with the fresh Figue d’Ete fragrance, reminiscent of crisp leaves and the juiciness of a perfectly ripened summer fig.


The do-it-all, must-have, award-winning dry oil of the season.  Misted, not poured, for perfect dosage control.  This feather-light formula blends lush oils and extracts (macadamia nut, sesame seed, sunflower seed, argan, sweet almond, squalane, and honey) for supple skin that begs to be touched.  Loaded with anti-oxidants, linoleic acid, and vitamans A and E.

Apply this sheer mist of dry oil all over skin for a fast-absorbing, satin finish to hydrate your skin. With smells of orange blossom (fleurs d’oranger from Provence), and the glow of sun-kissed skin, this dry oil is quickly absorbed. Skin is soft, silky, and never greasy.

Splendid, stunning, chic – there’s not one definitive translation for épatante, but certainly the compliments you’ll get after using would suffice.

Perfect for glowing moisture and hydration from head to toe, best to apply to freshly showered skin.  The dreamy orange blossom scent is also a great substitute for fragrance on-the-go.  Tip: run your hands through the ends of your hair to tame flyaways and split ends with any residual oil.

  • A perfect gift for her and him

June is upon us, which can only mean one thing: it’s wedding season! As more and more couples opt out of using a registry, it has become the guest’s responsibility to find the best and most unique gift for the happy couple. Whether you’ve got one special event or are booked every weekend with a different ceremony, Bastide’s got the perfect present for every type of couple. Bastide promises these gifts will win you the best guest award!


The chicest gift of the season to pamper you and your home: a holiday basket from Provence. Inside, find Bastide’s gentlest, oil-based hand wash – natural, soft, and luxurious – with its matching nourishing lotion and triple-milled gentle soap, available in delicious honey lavender (Miel de Lavande), crisp fig (Figue d’Ete), and sensual sweet amber (Ambre Soir). Each set comes with the Ambre d’Or potpourri crystals to warm and style every room.  The gifts come in the chicest French market basket to be reused all year long.
