Founders of popular website The New Potato mix food with lifestyle in this trendy, healthy cookbook: funny anecdotes, celebrity run-ins, and a healthy serving of fashion. Sisters Danielle and Laura Kosann have always loved cooking and eating out. But for them, it was never just about the food. It also meant the outfits they wore to dinner, the decor of the restaurant, and the guest list at their dinner party. Actually, food permeated every aspect of their lives. With inherent interests in fashion, design, media, and celebrity, they realized nobody was ever looking at these categories through the lens of food. Why weren’t people being asked about what they were eating the way they were being asked about their style, their careers, or their dating lives?
In launching the website, Danielle and Laura not only got to talk about food all the time, but they also collected a trove of hilarious experiences in brushing elbows with celebrities from all walks of life. Now, their debut cookbook brings together those antics and anecdotes with 85 original recipes that anyone can make, as long as they’re hungry and have a kitchen. Lime-Blueberry Pancakes? Stack ’em. Sweet Pea Carbonara? Give it a twirl. Then finish the night off with a Bourbon Chai. Pull up a chair, have a bite, and get ready for some great stories on the side.
