Review: Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi

Review: Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi

I’ve never been to Milk Bar but have heard wonderful things about the delicious treats that can be found at its NY storefront. As such, I was very excited to receive a copy of Milk Bar Life for review. Milk Bar chef and owner Christina Tosi promises simple, comforting recipes with a nostalgic flair.

The book itself is beautiful. The pages are thick and glossy with beautiful images of the featured recipes. Peppered throughout the book are Tosi’s stories about her connection to the recipes and where the came from. Her personality really comes through and the stories were probably my favorite part of the book.… Read more »

Review: Knockout Knits by Laura Nelkin

Review: Knockout Knits by Laura Nelkin

Knockout Knits is a gorgeous collection of luxurious and eye-catching accessories that incorporate simple techniques and embellishments for knockout results. I’ve been following designer Laura Nelkin for a while now. She’s known for creating beautiful accessories that often incorporate beads. When I heard that she had a book coming out, I knew I wanted to get it just for the section on how to bead. While the beading section was what drew me to the book, the other techniques and patterns in the book are just as good.

Review: My Paris Kitchen by David Lebovitz

Review: My Paris Kitchen by David Lebovitz

As an avid reader of David Lebovitz’s blog, I knew that I wanted to add My Paris Kitchen to my cooking library as soon as it came out. His stories on life and cooking in France are funny, charming and delicious. I already have several of his dessert cookbooks in my kitchen and they are well used and well loved. While you may expect a former chef to be snobbish about food, Lebovitz is not. While he recommends getting the best ingredients you can afford, he isn’t stuck on labels or appearances so much shopping local and using what tastes good to you. My Paris Kitchen is a wonderful extension of Lebovtiz’s blog and is filled with funny stories and anecdotes about his life in Paris as well as over 100 recipes for modern French cuisine.
