Need to Have: Single-Minded Cookbooks

image

I have a thing for cookbooks. My shelves run the gamut, from a tattered copy of Peg Bracken’s 1960 I Hate to Cook Book to more recent acquisitions like Yotam Ottolenghi’s PlentyI read them like novels, absorbing each author’s particular voice and idiosyncrasies, and file away recipes as inspiration. 

Now I’ve got my eye on three new additions for my collection. My friend Nick Fauchald recently launched Short Stack Editions, a series of gorgeous, delightfully compact, single-ingredient books. For each of the volumes (first up: Strawberries, Tomatoes, and Eggs), he tapped amazing chefs like Susan Spungen, the founding food editor at Martha Stewart Living, to Ian Knauer, a former Gourmet editor and author of The Farm.

Kristen Bell as teen detective Veronica Mars.

After being cancelled in 2007, Veronica Mars, the cult-classic teen drama about a sharp-tongued high school detective starring Kristen Bell, is back! No, not as a series, but a movie.

Yesterday, the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, and Bell announced plans for a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film via crowdsourcing. Thomas had made attempts in the past to create a full-length feature following the show’s abrupt ending while in its third season, but the production company Warner Bros. wasn’t convinced. Now, five years after the show was pulled off the air, Thomas, Bell and a few other cast members have decided to take matters into their own (and fans’) hands.
