Overview

It began as a little blog highlighting the recipes and crafts of the Norwegian-born food and prop stylist Paul Lowe. Six years later, Sweet Paul is an online magazine followed by millions and a print quarterly sold nationwide in specialty stores. Praised by the New York Times as “a trove of seasonal delights,” it is turning heads with its easy, elegant food and style-setting aesthetic.

Divided into Morning, Brunch, Noon, and Night, with color palettes to match, Sweet Paul Eat and Make includes breakfast dishes like Morning Biscuits with Cheddar, Dill, and Pumpkin Seeds and brunches like Smoked Salmon Hash with Scallions, Dill, and Eggs. For lunch, there’s a super-quick Risotto with Asparagus, and for dinner, Maple-Roasted Chicken and a stunning Norwegian specialty, World’s Best Cake. Rustically chic craft projects—paper flowers made out of coffee filters, a vegetable-dyed tablecloth, and a trivet from wooden clothespins—will captivate even those who are all thumbs.

Fans of the magazine Sweet Paul and its blog will delight in the long-awaited cookbook by creator Lowe, Oslo-born food and craft stylist. Home cooks who love both kitchen couture and innovative simple cuisine now have a cookbook to “sweeten their everyday life.” Chapters, organized by time of day (Morning, Brunch, Noon, and Night) are divided into Eat and Make sections. Lowe’s love of breakfast/brunch foods is reflected in over 20 hearty start-the-day recipes. Variations on pancakes, French toast, eggs, and biscuits abound including a Breakfast Polenta with Hazelnuts, Honey, and Pears. Morning Tart with Broccoli, Goat cheese, and Smoked Salmon, a dilly, seafood Skagen Salad, and Mormor’s Fish Pie are Scandinavian-inspired dishes honoring Lowe’s Norwegian aunt and grandmother. Recipes also include pasta, beef bourguignon, meatballs, roasted vegetable shepherd’s pie, and desserts featuring tarts, cakes, and a pavlova with vanilla cream and blackberries. Lowe, whose motto advocates “chasing the sweet things in life,” presents in stunning images both a collection of easy projects such as bent-fork bookends, clay-ring egg cups, and hand-painted table runners side-by-side with delicious recipes. When it comes to creating a homey and fashionable kitchen table, Lowe proves that the combination of whisk and glue gun adds a touch of charm to everyone’s kitchen. (Apr.)

— Publishers Weekly, starred

"Dishes such as breakfast churros with cinnamon sugar and chicken with olives and capers look luxurious but are relatively inexpensive and easy to make. Similarly, simple crafts that include fork bookends and vintage-photo napkins offer maximum fun for minimal cost. VERDICT: As its title suggests, this beautifully designed and approachable cookbook is a call to action, not just something pleasant for the eye."
— Library Journal

“A book so sweet and beautiful that you will wish yourself into the pictures. Absolutely magical.” — Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer Purcell, stars of The Fabulous Beekman Boys

“Before you cook or bake a single homey, lick-the-spoon dish, and before you begin one of the many ingenious craft projects, you’ll have to stop oohing and aahing over the pictures and start thinking of what to make next. Paul Lowe has given us a book that will keep us happy for years.” — Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table

“Paul Lowe has been inspiring my family and me for years with his stylish take on crafts and food. His Nordic roots and New York tastes shine in the delicious and distinctive dishes he has created in Sweet Paul Eat & Make.” – Tyler Florence, chef and television host

Sweet Paul Eat & Make is one of those rare books that makes us yearn to jump inside its pages and live there. Leafing through, we can't help daydreaming about having friends over for homemade Finnish Rye Bread, served with Baked Snug Eggs on a DIY clothespin trivet, with Roasted Plum Bellinis on the side —and we just know we'd be happier, better people if we did." — Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, co-founders of Food52
