watched David Gelb’s movie and i join your recommendation. Jiro’s dedication is something not so common in the west.


lovely list


love your lists!!


Hi Heidi! I have been following for a long time and love your blog! A friend and I were just talking about brussel sprout relish. I’m wondering ifyou’ve tried anything?


I so look forward to these lists. I love to see we share some favorites (I have been making Sarah’s bircher meusli like mad) but more than anything I love the beautiful sites and stories and blogs you introduce me to. And that wind map! I wish I could make that live, in motion, on a wall in my house. Thank you for staying inspired, for inspiring.


I always look forward to your Favorites list, that you included Bea Feitler gave rise to memories from long ago. I had the wonderful experience of working with her at Vanity Fair — she’d already made a name for herself, was well-known and well-regarded. She also had an unerring instinct for beauty, much like yourself.

HS: That must have been amazing. That’s one thing I miss about working in a larger creative workspace – the overall collaborative, social nature of your day to day. The way you never really know who you’ll work with next, or on what…

Hiro Dreams of Sushi was fantastic…made me want to go there NOW! I hadn’t heard about the Colors of Confinement…just finished reading Buddha in the Attic…very interesting.


Isn’t Jiro Dreams of Sushi filmed beautifully? He talked about sushi, & I was inspired in life. You know?


How crazy! I clicked on that beach listing in Belize and I just stayed in those cabanas this past April on a family vacation! Caye Caulker is beautiful and Colinda’s Cabanas were one of the nicest places to stay. 😉 Reasonably priced, too… Absolutely gorgeous beach and breezes…


I just saw Jiro last weekend and found it super inspiring! I even watched the extra features and deleted scenes. I found it so endearing how humble and hard-working Jiro, his sons, the apprentices, and the “masters” are. Their approach to their work is something I strive for. It even inspired me to be neater and more deliberate about my home, since I tend do let clutter pile up.
Oh, and I’ve been making the Muesli with starwberry sauce for the past three weeks, except I use steel-cut oats instead of muesli. I love it! Just the thought of it can get me out of bed in the morning.


I was so happy to see that you were doing your favorites list! I always find things i love! The wind map is fascinating and I loved the preview of the sushi chef movie. Have you ever read “The Last Chinese Chef”? It’s fiction – but reminds me of the “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”..

Nice wind map 🙂


Your lists are both delicious and dangerous. Dangerous for my wallet, that is. Within a minute of reading Jen Altman’s list, I had a book in my Amazon cart. 🙂


Love the wind map! Thanks for the links.


Heidi I always find so many interesting things from your favorite lists.
It’s not the first time you’re signaling that Classe Ouvriere’s honey, it looks really amazing. I want to find it so badly as I’m a big consumer of honey.
I’ll bet there’s one reseller here in NYC!

HS: It’s worth seeking out Mike – I should have it back on the site toward the end of the month…

Mike @TheIronYou

I have that lemon cake on my to-bake list. It looks simply scrumptious!

Sophie @ happyspinach

Thank you again, Heidi.
Sunny days to you!

Sarah B

I didn’t know Charles Phan had a book on the way. Exciting. Thanks for the ‘heads up’.

Denise | Chez Danisse

I love when your new favorite lists show up on your blog. You always find such interesting things for us to check out. I never seem to run into any of the interesting items that show up here. Im just curious how you go about finding all of these wonderful things.

HS: Thanks Aaron – there’s not much method to the madness – they’re just things I come across in my day to day reading, linking, work, etc…


xx + happy weekend, heidi.

Megan Gordon

i’m so happy to see the smashed cherry and whisky cooler on your favorites list! i love your site and am happy to be included. i can’t wait to try out megan’s lemon french yogurt cake… cheers!

HS: I know, right? You guys are both continual favorites of mine. Happy weekend. xo


Love your lists and I just clicked open about 10 links 🙂

Averie @ Averie Cooks

I stayed at that boutique hotel in Argentina in 2008. Pictures do not do justice to the beautiful interior and lovely wood throughout. I’ve always dreamed that I could go back to run it. Thanks for posting!


Love this list! I cannot WAIT to try that Bircher Muesli with Spiced Strawberry Sauce – what a healthy and delicious treat! And I soo want that Classe Ouvriere Honey – just repinned it 🙂

Anjali @ The Picky Eater

Just went through your list, simply loved the summer soup very delicious and even the honey looks beautiful wonder where I can get it.Thanks for sharing
