You’ve seen Barnes & Nobles’ new Leatherbound Classics Series, right? Gorgeous. I just bought a couple thinking they’d be beautiful gifts, but they are just too pretty. I’ll be keeping them on my bookshelf for myself, thank you. (And I might just have to buy the rest.)
The man is a film genius. Seriously. I’m constantly asked what photography books I’d recommend and I’ve never been able to (which is the main reason why I wrote one).
If you are looking to learn a little more about wedding photography, or just need a little photo inspiration, definitely by Jose Villa’s book Fine Art Wedding Photography. It’s stunning. Congratulations, Jose!
Man, do I love butter. I made Thomas Keller’s Potato Pavé from his cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home. I can’t even describe how amazing these taste… you’ll just have to make it for yourself. Buy the book here, or get the recipe here.
Oh, and if you buy the book, I dare you to make his Fried Chicken. Time consuming, but soooo worth it. Puts those Southerners to shame.
Definitely, one of the best things online: What Katie Ate Bumper Christmas ’10 Edition.
I just received my copy today and I have to admit… I’d forgot I’d ordered it. It was so long ago and since it came from England, it took way too long to get here.
But I’m glad it did because everything Donna Hay does makes me so incredibly happy. A few online magazines popping up have bits of copying –but nothing compares to the original.
We call Georgia the “real” Jamie Oliver of food because she actually farms/fishes/hunts-to-table for her food adventures. She recently released her first book, Food Heroes that “tells the story of sixteen culinary artisans across the world, who are fighting to preserve their food traditions.” It’s SUCH a great book and it’s all I hear about on twitter and blogland and she’s nice enough to offer a giveaway to you!
Leave a comment of your favorite culinary adventure (even if that means only opening a box of canned soup) for a chance to win Georgia’s book. Deadline is Sunday night at midnight. Winner to be announced Monday.
the night before worthie’s wedding, we were punching confetti and getting blisters.
