Scouted Today:

We’re obsessed with a lot of things: art, music, antiques, being outdoors, cars, motorcyles, rugs, jewelry, traveling, flea markets… the list goes on and on. But the topic you’re likely to find us discussing the most is food and drink, which is why we were so excited to recently discover this gem of a site–MOUTH. Their mission statement says: Our goal is to help you discover and get the best, most delicious and most interesting indie food products and to help indie makers grow their business. Take a look at their site and see if you can resist placing an order immediately! How about the Pickles Every Month subscription. Yes, please!

New Favorite Site: TASTEMADE

Today’s discovery is too delicious not to, which launched in early March. Their mission statement: Tastemade, based in Santa Monica, CA, is a global media company with a mission to connect the world through food. Through its platform, studio and network of culinary talent around the world, Tastemade produces a wide range of programming designed to inspire people to learn and spread their passion for food.

We’ve already watched a number of the videos on their Youtube channel. Our favorite thus far is A Day in India which has us wishing we were about to embark on a trip there (it’s a constant daydream). So grab your favorite beverage–a nice bourbon or aged rum would be our pick–and indulge in a little culinary voyeurism. A little warning: you might find yourself running out to grab supplies to make the “The Slacker Milkshake”.

Marrakesh By Design Signing 1/17

Please join us this Thursday for our über talented friend Maryam Montague’s book signing at Figue in Soho at 7pm.

We hope to see you all there!

Birds of Paradise…

We first discovered the magnificent Birds of Paradise when watching David Attenborough’s wonderful Life of Birds series. While it’s hard for us to call any one bird our favorite, these exotic creatures are probably the ones we love the most. And how can you not? They are living works of art every one. So suffice to say, ever since we saw (via Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s efforts to photograph and document the entire species, we haven’t been able to stop watching the videos since. And don’t ask us to pick a favorite. That IS impossible.
