A friend of mine recently sent me a link to this amazing book, American Fashion Cookbook, and I could not believe it! This totally chic, hardback, adorably-illustrated cookbook combines both of my loves – fashion and cooking! From Betesy Johnson‘s Cherry Sour Cream Pie to Isaac Mizrahi’s Mushroom Truffle Spaghetti, this book showcases that odd and wonderful relationship between haute couture and fine cuisine.
As an added bonus, some of the recipes are accompanied by personal statements from the designers. Diane von Furstenberg states that, “when you cook for the ones you love, you somehow become [a great cook],” and she goes on to say that every time she makes her Saturday Night Chicken, she ends up eating with her hands! I just can’t believe that! Michael Kors calls his favorite recipe “a meal version of a ten-ply cashmere turtleneck.” Although I wish this collection contained more personal stories and tidbits from the designers’ kitchens, it’s a worthwhile and inspiring read for any fashionista who fancies herself a chef!
To start, I tried out Nicole Miller’s Tortilla Soup recipe!

this is so up my alley 🙂
ooohh, I love cooking from recipes!
I really need to get me a copy of this.
Oh, my gosh! I need this!
asking for this Cook book for Christmas!
the girls on the cover don’t seem to have much of an appetite :-/
is it problematic that an industry that pushes an image of extreme thinness (for profit/status/etc) publishes a cookboook?
discuss (don’t forget to include the evils of capitalism and gender politics!)
