Pancetta, Crafting and The World's Best Cake: Sweet Paul's "Eat, Make . . ."

Pancetta, crafting and The World's Best Cake are all found in the new book from the crafting and cooking genius behind Sweet Paul Magazine.  Sweet Paul, aka Paul Lowe Einlyng,  uses his magazine, and his new book "Sweet Paul: Eat, Make..." to highlight "food and crafts through the lens of his seasoned stylist’s eye.

Paul believes that perfection is boring, something I wholeheartedly believe. His genius is that he takes things that are simple, and elevate them to new heights, celebrating life's imperfections as well as its glorious beauty.  If you follow me on Twitter, you know I am a big fan of the simple, crave-inducing recipes from @sweetpaul like Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta AND Blue Cheese?! Maybe I really love him because pancetta makes its way in to a few recipes, like this delicious bite below.


A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to tag along with one of my besites to the New York launch party for "Eat, Make . . ."  While there was no making (I really felt like there should have been a craft of some kind) there was indeed drinking, eating, mingling and of course, book signing at the Anthropologie in Chelsea Market.  Upon arriving, we nibbled, sipped and took a look at the book which is gorgeous and features tons of curve worthy craveable recipes, like the aforementioned WORLD'S BEST CAKE.  Although, there was no cake there were cake POPS and other great nibbles.

My favorite bite was a sort of caprese salad skewer with a balsamic infusion speared in the tomato.  I LOVE balsamic and the grape tomatoes and mozzarella were an inventive and delicious combination.

If you love crafting and simple living, make sure to pick up a copy of the book "Sweet Paul: Eat, Make . . ." and subscribe to the gorgeous Pinterest feed while you're at it, too!
