Summer Reading from Rizzoli

Summer means getting outside, celebrating with friends and family, and taking some time to catch up on your hobbies. Below, Rizzoli presents a list of titles sure to guide you towards your summer goals or offer up some new goals you never knew you had.


SUMMER IS TIME TO ENTERTAIN

EntertainingintheCountry_p143

TIPS FOR A POTLUCK SUPPER

from Entertaining in the Country
“Here in the country, when you invite people to dinner, they always ask:”What can I bring?”…Potluck parties are great icebreakers. In the invitation, we encouraged our friends to let us know if they would like to bring something. (It would be terribly rude to demand that they do so.) For the next few weeks, e-mails and phone calls flew back and forth as the menu evolved. We wanted to avoid duplicates-and to make sure that all the bases (starters, mains, desserts) were covered…We made up cards for each dish with the name of the cook and the recipe title and set them on place card holders. The cards made it easy to organize the party offerings. We put the starters near the bar, encouraging guests to mingle while we arranged the main-course platters on the long table in the kitchen. Desserts were set on a round table in the corner…The variety of dishes made for a great grazing.”

Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken

Celebrating Women’s History Month

Throughout Women’s History Month, which takes place annually during the month of March, Rizzoli is proud to present a selection of innovators, trailblazers, and liberators, all of whom bucked the social constraints of their times to become champions of women. Whether breaking into male-dominated fields or fighting against expected norms, these brave women laid the groundwork for generations of girls and women to fight for and fulfill their personal goals, whatever they may be.


Rule Breakers

LaMereBrazier_PG080

Eugénie Brazier

Eugénie Brazier is the mother of modern French cooking. She opened her restaurant, La Mère Brazier, in 1921 and went on to earn six Michelin stars—the only woman to do so until 2009. She became—and still is today—the inspiration and mentor for modern French cooking and leading French chefs, such as Michelin-starred chef Paul Bocuse. Brazier’s amazing abilities in the kitchen turned La Mère Brazier into the most famous restaurant in France—a magical gastronomic experience that drew notables such as Marlene Dietrich and a number of French presidents.

Catharina “Toto” Koopman

Catharina “Toto” Koopman—a half-Dutch, half-Indonesian Vogue cover girl and fixture of the Paris fashion and café society—lived with an independent spirit more typical of the men of her generation. Her intelligence—she spoke 6 languages—and irresistible charm led her to become a spy during WWII for the Italian Resistance, which resulted in her imprisonment in a concentration camp by the Nazis (she had previously been caught and escaped—twice). When the camp was liberated, Koopman was nursed back to health by her former lover, Randolph Churchill, and eventually found solace in Erica Brausen, the German art dealer who, with Koopman’s help, launched the career of Francis Bacon. The two women lived out the rest of their lives together, despite homosexuality being a criminal offense in Britain at the time. Learn more.


Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland

When she discovered ballet in 1995, Misty Copeland and her five siblings were sleeping on the floor of a shabby motel room she shared with her family. Beginning her ballet studies at the late age of thirteen, she was performing professionally in just over a year. By 2000, Copeland was invited to join American Ballet Theatre’s Studio Company and later became the company’s second African American female Soloist—the first in two decades. In June 2015, she was promoted to principal dancer, making her the first African-American woman to ever be promoted to the position in the company’s 75-year history. Copeland, who was often told her strongly-defined muscles did not fit the “ideal” ballerina body, is breaking down ballet’s racial and physical barriers, raising awareness for diversity in dance and for a more positive self-image.

Go Beyond Resolutions: A Year of Self-Discovery

Who needs resolutions? All you need for a fresh start is an open mind and a willingness to explore. Why not take the time to learn something new, try out that hobby you’ve been thinking about, or take a trip to a new locale? Below are just a few tips for taking the first steps towards a happier you.

Take an Inner Journey:

“Everything in your entire life reflects the choices you have made. If you wish for a different result, make a different choice.”

French women reportedly have great genes, but former supermodel and French wellness sensation Estelle Lefébure (author of Flammarion’s Mindful Beauty, seen at top) divulges how they really maintain their fantastic natural looks. Her positive outlook inspires, and she offers a simple, enjoyable path to well-being and looking fabulous forever.

Estelle Lefébure’s Creative Vision of a Better Life:

Suppose we took advantage of long winter evenings to visualize our most deeply desired goals, dreams, and longings. It’s a simple idea; all you do is identify these wishes as clearly as you can and embrace the belief that we have power over our own lives. The subconscious will direct you toward the actions that will transform your aspirations into reality.

And here’s some good news—this exercise in creative visualization costs no more than the price of paper, scissors, and glue. Envisioning success requires no investment whatsoever, except some time and reflection. It’s best to do this on your own, or with close friends, having first collected together old newspapers and magazines.

To begin, decide how you will undertake the project:
Use an entire wall in your home?
A large white or colored piece of cardboard?
A compartmented file that you can easily carry with you?

All you have to do is post drawings, photos, and quotations that inspire you. What makes you dream? Write down words that motivate you. Try to always formulate your thoughts positively, picturing yourself surrounded by abundance rather than deprivation.

The objective is to reflect sincerely and profoundly on your deepest longings, whether in private or professional spheres, in family life, romance, or any other area of your life that is important to you.”

Jar Salads_digitalexcerpt-4

Put down that hamburger and try this healthy and delicious lunch idea from Smith Street’s Jar Salads. Who wants a soggy salad?
