Paul Lowe, photos by Alexandra Grablewski. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $30 (272p) ISBN 978-0-544-13333-4
Fans of the magazine Sweet Paul and its blog will delight in the long-awaited cookbook by creator Lowe, Oslo-born food and craft stylist. Home cooks who love both kitchen couture and innovative simple cuisine now have a cookbook to “sweeten their everyday life.” Chapters, organized by time of day (Morning, Brunch, Noon, and Night) are divided into Eat and Make sections. Lowe’s love of breakfast/brunch foods is reflected in over 20 hearty start-the-day recipes. Variations on pancakes, French toast, eggs, and biscuits abound including a Breakfast Polenta with Hazelnuts, Honey, and Pears. Morning Tart with Broccoli, Goat cheese, and Smoked Salmon, a dilly, seafood Skagen Salad, and Mormor’s Fish Pie are Scandinavian-inspired dishes honoring Lowe’s Norwegian aunt and grandmother. Recipes also include pasta, beef bourguignon, meatballs, roasted vegetable shepherd’s pie, and desserts featuring tarts, cakes, and a pavlova with vanilla cream and blackberries. Lowe, whose motto advocates “chasing the sweet things in life,” presents in stunning images both a collection of easy projects such as bent-fork bookends, clay-ring egg cups, and hand-painted table runners side-by-side with delicious recipes. When it comes to creating a homey and fashionable kitchen table, Lowe proves that the combination of whisk and glue gun adds a touch of charm to everyone’s kitchen. (Apr.)
