Favorites List (1.31.13)

Favorites List (1.31.13) Recipe

Let's switch things up a bit with the favorites this time around. I'm going to put a few things out there, and I'd be incredibly thrilled if you leave a suggestion or two for me. Don't feel pressured, just throw it out there if you've come across something you were particularly excited about, Something you think I might like. Sound o.k? I'm turning the final pages of the book I'm reading, so any new book suggestions would be great. Podcasts? Yes please, I go through so many when I'm doing dishes or pre-packing for QK. What else? I'm always on the lookout for good documentaries and also cookbooks published outside the U.S. (I see most of the U.S. books), or music playlists. One last thing before we get to the list - for those of you who like to get the heads up - we're aiming to open the shop with new items(!), and a restock of a number of the items that sold through quickly last time...Monday morning, Feb 4. at 8:30 a.m. PST. I posted little glimpse here. xo for now -h

Lead photo: This time last year, through the window of Du Pain et Des Idées in Paris - it was closed, and it was very cold, so I walked down the street and sat in the sun next to the frozen river to try to warm up a bit.

Good morning, Heidi I just love your list (again!) :) There is a really lovely "video" of SF you might enjoy. It's actually a complilation of 30,000 photographs edited together to make a short video! Have a wonderful weekend! Video: http://youtu.be/StvOqEBnR80


As a huge reader, I could bombard you with book suggestions, but I will limit my offerings to three recent very good reads: Child Wonder by Roy Jacobsen The Breaking of Eggs by Jim Powell The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches by Gaétan Soucy


The documentary 'For the Love the Mambo' captures the sounds and images of a vibrant expression of our American musical landscape and its passage to young performers in the 21st century. Here's link to the trailer: http://fortheloveofthemambo.com/trailer.html I'm a fan and avid follower of your writing and cooking!

What a great list! I wonder if you know the British Museum series of podcasts titled "A History of the World in 100 Objects." Each is about 15 minutes or string several together - perfect for accomplishing hand work. Thank you for this list opportunity and your wonderful recipes!

I'm in the middle of the first published biography of Harper Lee, author of the beloved To Kill a Mockingbird. The biography's title is Mockingbird and I love it so far! Did you know she was best friends with Truman Capote?

Music: Mumford & Sons


I second both The Snow Child in books, and The UP Series in documentaries (all on Netflix streaming except 56 UP, which is in theaters now - opens 2/15 in SF!).

(Another) Heidi

Novel: Guernica (about Spanish basque up to ~1940, which led to Picasso's famous mural - historical novel. Donna Hay cookbooks, magazines King of Masks - movie, a slice of Chinese culture of old Ken Burns' Frank L. Wright documentry


Just saw "Symphony of The Soil" at the Eco Farm Conference, a beautiful documentary about our soil and what is happening to farmers around the world. And can't recommend highly enough Erin Morgenstern's magical novel "The Night Circus" which makes you wish there truly was such a place. Thanks for another wonderful favorites piece!

Since you like to read you may like this website: http://www.whatshouldireadnext.com/ Tell it a book you like and it will suggest 20 more you may enjoy. You may have already seen this floating around Pinterest...


Check out divvyupdining.blogspot.com and search for Mt Everest or The Wildest Dream. There is a short summary of this documentary that will have you at the edge of your seat, if you like true adventure.


For a really riveting read, try Gone Girl.


Hi, Heidi! Great idea. Two quick reads: Why We Should Memorize (http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/2013/01/why-we-should-memorize.html) Joy by Zadie Smith (http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2013/jan/10/joy/?pagination=false) Also, Sam's reading the Katherine Book book, too, and loving it. Do you ever listen to The Design Matters podcasts? Sam introduced me to them but they're not solely for graphic design folks -- I find a lot of the interviews apply to any creative field. Happy weekend to you (enjoy that sun!)

Jiro Dreams of Sushi, beautiful documentary. Ottolenghi new book, Jerusalem - EXCELLENT! and one more thing a lovely inspiring blog http://bissim.com/

Dan Barber's iconic talk from TASTE? Or one of his new ones from TED? : -- ) xoxo
