communal table

Everyone's talking about digital media these days, but there's another publishing trend I'm really excited about: the rise of small, independently published books and magazines. If you're into food and entertaining (and I think you are!) I highly recommend Communal Table, a new series of cookbooks about the experience of eating and gathering together. The first edition, "A Casual Setting," which is beautifully illustrated by Caroline Hwang (one half of the NumNum Chronicles), features stories and recipes from Cathy Erway, the Jewels of New York, Tom Mylan of Brooklyn's Meat Hook, and more. An added bonus, the proceeds from each book in the series will benefit a food nonprofit, starting with Philadelphia-based The Food Trust.

Happy weekend!

In the spirit of real books with paper and ink, I will be circulating a handwritten copy of this comment by carrier pigeon at your earliest convenience.
