News from the food universe that are informative, will make you laugh or simply scratch your head.

Sweets

.

What you see above is what I keep handing out to people who ask about my upcoming cookbook Sweets – gotta love MOO cards, they can be so much more than just business cards! The front side provides a sneak peek into some of my favorite photography from the book to wet the recipient’s appetite, with more information on the book on the flip side.
I already received my very first book copy (*insert a happy dance here*) – delivered to my door step by my beloved editor Sabine – and I couldn’t be any happier! Expect more about Sweets and a new recipe next week!

The Gift of Hunger by Sadie Stein (via NYT)
“And yet. A part of me has always fetishized those relationships in which a couple was joined in their pursuit of all things sybaritic. I fantasized about finding someone who would be the Michael to my Jane Stern, so we could, like them, devote our lives to tracking down blue-ribbon pies and oyster shacks. (I cried when I learned that they were divorcing.) I pored over those parts of Julia Child’s memoirs devoted to her relationship with the supportive gourmet, Paul. I swooned over cookbook editor Judith Jones’s tales in The Tenth Muse of cranking out boudin with her husband, Evan, and traveling the French countryside in search of authentic regional cuisine.” [Paris Review]
