Food Arts Staff / June 13th, 2013

Seaweeds: Edible, Available, and Sustainable by Ole G. Mouristen
This beautiful and informative book canvases the "vegetables of the sea" in an encyclopedic fashion with added personal anecdotes, recipes, and a plethora of illustrations and photographs. —Jacqueline Sainsbury, manager, Food Arts online

The Beer Glass That Only Stands Upright When Balanced on Your Phone, The Telegraph
Absolutely brilliant—now we can all journey back to the days when we weren’t constantly checking the latest text, tweet, or Facebook message. Someone ship me a case of these immediately. —Abbe Lewis, associate editor

Last of the Italians, Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York
Jeremiah sits down with artist/photographer Anne Kristoff, who paints a picture of what life was like—including where and what they ate—of the remaining Italian families in Manhattan’s South Village neighborhood. Her work can be viewed today (also the Feast of St. Anthony) at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art. —Abbe Lewis

Fine Dining Without Reservations, The Wall Street Journal
Finally, a focus on root-to-flower instead of nose-to-tail. We all love bacon, but it's refreshing to see chefs concentrating on maximizing flavor by taking advantage of maillard reactions, sous-vide, and acid, and relying less on fat and sugar. —Pippa Riley, advertising and events coordinator
