German Fashion Kitchen features Esther Perbandt

Mittwoch, Dezember 21st, 2011 -

Which special meals do German fashion designers like to prepare at home? That was the question the authors from the Blogzine Nahtlos asked themselves and there it was – the idea for a unique cookbook.

In German Fashion Kitchen 55 designers reveal their kitchen secrets, among them also Esther Perbandt with her favourite recipe, fillet of pork with radish, pomegranate and Parmesan. The money goes to the children’s and youth organisation “Die Arche” e.V. So you cannot only find out how to impress your friends with a special dish but you also support a good cause with this purchase.

The authors found it important to feature young design talents, as well as top names in the cookbook to create publicity for Newcomers and for well-established labels. If you are now curious what Wolfgang Joop’s, Hien Le’s or Marcel Ostertag’s culinary specialty is, get a hard copy for € 27,99 or the E-book for 19,99. Although the last one is going to be difficult to wrap as a Christmas present.

 

Utilité – a Story about Passion and Patience

Dienstag, Dezember 20th, 2011 -

Utilité by Ellen Korth is no standard Do-It-Yourself book. Although we haven’t seen it in real life yet, the video presentation already made us love it. Ellen Korth visited 40 women and men at home and documented how passionate they knitted, crocheted or weaved. Utilité, which became more of an object than a book, is a piece of art on its own, with its incredible binding, personal stories and great image material. If you still need an unconventional Christmas present for someone, get this one. We hope to interview the author soon and tell you more about her work.
