Dear Readers,

Last night we had the priviledge of speaking with the dynamic culinary duo of Julia Turshen and Dorie Greenspan as we celebrated the pending release of Dorie's destined-to-become-a-classic: Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple. It was, in a word, joyous.

While we're on the topic of joy, may I suggest you immediately get yourself a account and download Stanley Tucci's Taste. You might have heard my rambling IG Live earlier this week, complete with technical mishaps but if not, no matter. Anyone looking for a bit of uplift in your life, would do well to download the audio copy and then swing by the store for a copy to keep in the kitchen for all future culinary adventures. Looking for me this weekend? I'll be perfecting my Negroni and revisiting my favorite passages from the book.

Finally, if you miss us in between newsletters and want to know more about what we're recommending, (including why I am obsessed with National Book Award finalist The Prophets) you can follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Be well,
