Dominique Crenn and Karen Leibowitz
Atelier Crenn is the debut cookbook of Dominique Crenn, the first female chef in America to be awarded two Michelin stars—and arguably the greatest female chef in the country. This gorgeous book traces Crenn’s rise from her childhood in France to her unprecedented success with her own restaurant, Atelier Crenn, in San Francisco. Crenn’s food is centered around organic, sustainable ingredients with an unusual, inventive, and always stunning presentation.
To put it simply, Crenn’s dishes are works of art. Her recipes reflect her poetic nature with evocative names like “A Walk in the Forest,” “Birth,” and “The Sea.” Even the dishes that sound familiar, like Fish and Chips, or Broccoli and Beef Tartare, challenge the expected with their surprising components and her signature creative plating. This impressive and beautiful cookbook by a chef who is often the only woman to be mentioned in the same breath with other culinary giants is bound to captivate the food world.
Internationally acclaimed star chef Rodolfo Guzman of Borago introduces the exciting world of high-end Chilean gastronomy.
"It isn't every day that a restaurant knocks your socks off, but Borago managed it with ease." -Financial Times
Chef Rodolfo Guzman serves a dynamic, wildly imaginative tasting menu at his acclaimed Santiago restaurant Borago, using only native Chilean ingredients - often reinventing his courses mid-service.
The book combines his fascinating narratives about Chilean geography and ingredients, his never-before-published notebook sketches of dishes and creative processes, and gorgeous landscape and food photographs that introduce readers to the distinctive pleasures of Chilean culture and cuisine.
This is rounded off by Guzman's selection of 100 savoury and sweet recipes exclusively chosen from the menu at Borago.
Say hello to our new covergirl, Chef April Bloomfield! She’s the celebrated talent behind some of the most smokin’ hot spots in New York and San Francisco, including The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, The John Dory Oyster Bar, Tosca Café, Salvation Taco, and White Gold Butchers.
April’s been an inspiration to the Cherry Bombe team ever since we launched and we’re thrilled to share this revealing conversation with her about life, love, and moving to Los Angeles.

This issue contains stories about Mexico City, its coffee, and the people who drink it. For our sixth issue, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in Mexico City. One of the largest and most populous cities in the world, Mexico City is one of the most compelling places to drink coffee right now. This sprawling, frenetic city has easy access to Mexico’s coffee plantations. But only recently has that coffee made it into the capital’s cafes. While specialty cafe owners are embracing this resource, a new generation of coffee-drinkers are reshaping the city’s neighborhoods at a rapid clip. And both are finding a new coffee-drinking identity that continues Mexico’s long history of coffee-growing and drinking traditions.
Drift, Mexico City guides us from China to New York, from the Aztecs to the future, as we take a magnifying glass to what makes Mexico City’s coffee scene tick.

Insightful, surprising and with ground-breaking revelations about our society, Everybody Lies exposes the secrets embedded in our internet searches, with a foreword by bestselling author Steven Pinker
Everybody lies, to friends, lovers, doctors, pollsters - and to themselves. In Internet searches, however, people confess their secrets - about sexless marriages, mental health problems, even racist views. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, an economist and former Google data scientist, shows that this could just be the most important dataset ever collected. This huge database of secrets - unprecedented in human history - offers astonishing, even revolutionary, insights into humankind. Anxiety, for instance, does not increase after a terrorist attack.
Crime levels drop when a violent film is released. And racist searches are no higher in Republican areas than in Democrat ones. Stephens-Davidowitz reveals information we can use to change our culture, and the questions we're afraid to ask that might be essential to our health - both emotional and physical. Insightful, funny, and always surprising, Everybody Lies exposes the biases and secrets embedded deeply within us, at a time when things are harder to predict than ever.

Fattobene takes us on a taxonomic exploration of typically Italian articles that have been around forever and that deserve a closer look.
It’s a one-of-a-kind platform on where you can find little-known treasures and iconic products representing an Italian tradition of quality that draws on the highest industrial and artisan values. Fattobene presents itself as a refined guide to shopping that in the coming months will be turned into a proper online store.
The project stems from an idea of the journalist Anna Lagorio and the photographer Alex Carnevali, who after a journey in the South of Italy decided to bring together and promote a series of precious products that are not very well known outside the regions from which they come, recounting their histories in detail, along with anecdotes and curiosities.
For its online debut, Fattobene, the Italian for “well-made,” has chosen twelve articles, to which others will be added in the future. Visual identity and site by the Actant Visuelle studio.

Imagine rushing your child to the hospital, terrified for his life…just because he took a mouthful of the wrong food or a few drops of milk touched his skin. Susan Weissman knows how that feels. From birth, her son Eden suffered from allergies so intense that an errant bite could be deadly: Dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, fish, shellfish, and several fruits all wreaked havoc with his body. Susan had to make food the focus of her existence just to lead him safely through a world filled with edible landmines.
In Feeding Eden, Susan writes with poignancy, honesty, and humor about her quest to help her son--including trying a cluster of alternative therapies-as well as the effect of Eden's illness on their entire family. More than just a story for parents with severely allergic children, this is a stirring account of one woman's recipe for motherhood as she rises to a challenge she has no choice but to conquer-and successfully restores her entire family's appetite for life

Its transient beauty, with natural ingredients, refined techniques, and spatial sense, has been the object of Shinichiro Ogata's work throughout his career.

In Magnitude, Kimberly Arcand and Megan Watzke take us on an expansive journey to the limits of size, mass, distance, time, and temperature in our universe, from the tiniest particle within the structure of an atom to the most massive galaxy in the universe; from the speed at which grass grows (about 2 to 6 inches a month) to the speed of light.
Fully-illustrated with four-color drawings and infographics throughout
and organized into sections including Size and Amount (Distance, Area, Volume, Mass, Time, Temperature), Motion and Rate (Speed, Acceleration, Density, Rotation), and Phenomena and Processes (Energy, Pressure, Sound, Wind, Computation), Magnitude shows us the scale of our world in a clear, visual way that our relatively medium-sized human brains can easily understand.
We’re looking forward to sharing cutting edge stories from our inaugural print edition of Matters Journal, launching at Pause Festival in February 2018.
A definitive, fresh and approachable collection of 150 traditional recipes from an authoritative voice on Middle Eastern home cooking, Salma Hage's new book is in line with the current Western trends of consciously reducing meat, and the ancient Middle Eastern culture of largely vegetarian, mezze style dining.
Traditionally, the Middle Eastern diet consisted largely of vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, pulses, grains and legumes. Salma simplifies this fast becoming popular cuisine with easily achievable recipes, many with vegan and gluten-free options.
Drawing inspiration from ancient and prized Phoenician ingredients, from grassy olive oil to fresh figs and rich dates, this book offers an array of delicious breakfasts and drinks, mezze and salads, vegetables and pulses, grains and desserts.
Salma shows how to easily make the most of familiar everyday fruits and legumes, as well as more exotic ingredients now widely available
outside of the Middle East, with nourishing recipes so flavourful and satisfying they are suitable for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
