Whoa. Writing that just freaked me out substantially. However, I am determined to help you find your last minute gifts for your loved ones. One day at a time.
My first pick is a truly awesome and beautiful book for the hip foodie in your life. The hip foodie in my life reserved her copy of this fantastic cookbook well before most, and even alerted me to its existence – I am embarrassed to say.
Mission Street Food by Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz, is from the new cookbook imprint from McSweeney’s , and defies convention as a restaurant, much like McSweeney’s itself pushes the boundaries of the publishing world. This cookbook is a testament to the work that chefs at Mission Street Food do for their community (75 cents from every entree goes to the San Fransisco Food Bank and $10 from every book bought through McSweeney’s goes to Slow Food USA ) as well as a tribute to lovingly and carefully prepared food.
Not to mention lovingly and thoughtfully prepared books.
