“Salamishah does what only great writers of literary criticism accomplish—she tells a story about a masterpiece without forgetting the extraordinary woman who crafted it and the legions of women made whole because of her work. A bold and vital tale that rightly treats Alice Walker’s American classic as if it were a living, breathing being demanding our utmost attention and enduring affection.”—@janetmock, author of REDEFINING REALNESS and SURPASSING CERTAINTY

On a day where drinking champagne is practically a given, why not bring in the perfect pairing for dinner! 🍾🍗 Vanessa Price says in BIG MACS AND BURGUNDY, "there may be no better accidental relationship on earth than the one that exists between fried chicken and Champagne, the ultimate Voltron of grease, protein, bubbles, and acid." 🥂

Own up! How many of you had to tell a little white lie if you didn’t love a gift you got yesterday? 🤥

Now imagine if your parents had raised you to never lie, if they’d ingrained in you a compulsion to never, under any circumstances, withhold the truth or fail to speak your mind. It might be wonderfully freeing. Everyone else might not appreciate it so much.

TO BE HONEST is Michael Leviton’s extraordinary account of being raised in a family he calls a “little honesty cult.” It is a tender and darkly comic memoir about what it means and how it feels to tell more than the truth. On sale January 5th!

During a furious storm a young woman’s destiny is revealed . . . and her life is changed forever.

AFTER THE RAIN is a graphic novel adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor’s short story “On the Road.” The drama takes place in a small Nigerian town during a violent and unexpected storm. A Nigerian-American woman named Chioma answers a knock at her door and is horrified to see a boy with a severe head wound standing at her doorstep. He reaches for her, and his touch burns like fire. Something is very wrong. Haunted and hunted, Chioma must embrace her heritage in order to survive. John Jennings and David Brame’s graphic novel collaboration uses bold art and colors to powerfully tell this tale of identity and destiny.

We were chatting about Hanukkah plans with Jesica, a member of the Abrams Dinner Party, this week and she was excited about the prospect of shaking up her latke toppings this year. While we do love the tried-and-true sour cream and applesauce, we were inspired to also add a new spread to the mix!

​On our blog today, we have Matty Matheson's whipped goat cheese with anchovy parsley salad. Jesica predicts that it will be a "stunning" pair and we're so excited to try it! https://bit.ly/3ndBw5G

Happy Hanukkah to all those celebrating! 🕎 If there’s ever a year that we need holiday drinks, it’s this one. Here are a few wine pairings for your celebration from Vanessa Price and BIG MACS AND BURGUNDY!

🍷Potato Latkes + Golan Heights Sparkling—In the Golan Heights, a subregion of Galilee in northern Israel, sparkling wines are being make that are not only kosher, but insanely good with potato latkes. On display here are the same winning acid-and-fried-potato fundamentals that make French fries and Champagne so irresistible.

🍷Sufganiyah + White Zinfandel—And before you roll your eyes, hear me out. White Zinfandel of yesteryear was bulk produced and tasted like mediocre sugar water. And yes, some of them still do, but there’s a new guard of quality producers in California who’ve resuscitated the category. They are dry and packed with juicy citrus, and they range in hue from fluorescent fuchsia to soft salmon. They have a mid-palate that’s bursting with every berry of the rainbow, which feels like an extension of the jelly in your donut. And the pleasingly tart finish dispatches with the dough just in time to do it all again.

Try these delightful pairings and let us know what you think!

Jason Wang of Xi'an Famous Foods 西安名吃 calls his pineapple chicken recipe "a perfect example of how immigration and location can transform cultural flavors."

​He goes on to explain that "Xi’an might not have a lot of sweet-and-salty combinations, but those flavors developed in other regions in southern China. Add in the influence of Chinese American takeout, and you get this: crispy bits of chicken in your classic sweet-and-sour sauce, with pineapple and ketchup (yes, ketchup). It’s exactly what you would think of when you think Chinese American food, but potentially better, fresher, from the take- out joint you wish were near your apartment." 🥡 Are you convinced yet?
