Good Reads - Kale, A New Yorker Documentary, Garance Dore

The House of Yagi is absolutely breathtaking. 

My sister has been going on and on about this kale salad. I love kale but am also distracted by my love for the sound of pecorino .

Garance Dore recently started hosting online hangout sessions where readers write in with questions, and she answers them live via YouTube. She's charming as always, and it's heartwarming to see some of the eager, younger readers with their questions about their careers. Well done! 

Obsessing over artist Daimon Downey's Sydney home.  

A documentary about New Yorker cartoonists! Support the project here.  

And finally, my most recent piece on We Are The Market: a profile on Soho shop MACHINE-A.  

Have a great weekend!

Best Wednesday ever.

Aside from the fact that it was warm enough for me to go bare legged (huge bonus)... sister sent me a surprise care package, which included back issues of The New Yorker and Kiplinger and goodies from Unicoi State Park in North Georgia (#represent)  where we used to go as little ones. Also, my new subscription to National Geographic finally started (and I can't wait to find out how that baby will live to be 120).

Also a bonus? I bought a lip pencil at & Other Stories and firmed up plans to visit Paris + Nice (or Cassis?) later this summer with two of my best Greenpoint pals.

Doin' it and doin' it and doin' it well.
