We often think of the art of food, and the art of cooking, but we don’t necessarily think about the artfulness of the cooks themselves, and their own environments.
Now a new quarterly magazine from the minds behind art magazine Where Women Create celebrates the joy of cooking in a whole new way.
The quarterly Where Women Cook feels like a cross between a food blog and a big inspirational
scrapbook, definitely more Country Living than
Metropolitan Home. Prepare for recipes for blackberry scones and strawberry pandowdy (plus a
smoothie with avocado and kale, that actually sort
of terrifies me). But it’s not all about recipes; you’ll find photo essays and short first-person essays from all kinds of interesting, inspiring women in the food world, plus tips, info about decor and kitchen gadgets, and more.
Personally, the Suzy Eaton recipe for five-cheese tomato basil soup is
the calling my name, along with one for Saltine Caramel Bars. (Yum.) And
I love the article on the Women of Chelsea Market
in New York, where I grab lunch several times a week. I also loved
seeing food blogger, best-selling cookbook author, and friend of CMP,
Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman on the inaugural cover and her story about starting her blog is quite a sweet read.
A subscription would make a nice, unexpected gift for a friend who loves
her mason jars. -Liz
