Review

"Home cooks who love both kitchen couture and innovative simple cuisine now have a cookbook to 'sweeten their everyday life.' [Lowe] presents in stunning images both a collection of easy projects...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."
— 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


More About the Author


MY STORY: FROM NORWAY TO THE BLOGOSPHERE TO
ANTHROPOLOGIE
I was raised, Paul Lowe Einlyng, in Oslo, Norway by two little old ladies, my great aunt, Auntie Gunnvor and my grandmother, who I lovingly referred to as Mormor. Ever since I was small, I've been obsessed with cooking, crafting
and decorating. It's in my blood. Both my grandmother and great aunt were excellent cooks and crafters with impeccable taste. But they were not perfectionists. Their cakes tended to be a little lopsided and their craft projects definitely weren't up to Martha's standards.
But they always had such fun! I've adopted my grandmother's motto, "fullkommenhet er kjedelig..." which means "perfection is boring," and I have incorporated it and her sheer joy of creating into everything I do.
In October of 2007, I was living in New York
City as "Paul," a successful craft and food stylist. I unwittingly transformed myself into Sweet
Paul when I chose the name for a little blog that
I started to highlight some work I was producing for my clients. In order to carve out my own little niche on the web, I expanded my postings to include brand new content featuring what I loved: food and crafts filtered through the lens of my seasoned stylist's eye. I did not intend the blog
to garner 200,000 hits a month or give rise to an online magazine, which has become something of a phenomenon.
Here's how that happened: By 2009, my friends and colleagues in the magazine industry were lauding my work and asking if they could contribute to the blog. I decided that I should go out on a limb and create my own magazine that would leverage not only my years of experience, but also showcase the work of my incredibly

talented posse of food-geek, photography-obsessed, craft-genius friends! I wanted Sweet Paul magazine to be an anticipated quarterly that readers could use to sweeten their everyday life. I strive to put out a magazine that is as creative and visually stunning as Martha Stewart Living but without being weighed-down with impossible recipes and projects developed for expert chefs and crafters.
Full of easy-yet-elegant recipes, stylish crafts, entertaining ideas, shopping tips, recurring features and more, Sweet Paul magazine is the source people all over the world turn to for inspiration. We are on the radar of every stylist from food to props to crafts. Magazine editors from the most popular shelter and food magazines use tear- sheets from Sweet Paul for their shoots. I regularly, and humbly, notice references
to my work in popular mass-market magazines. When I'm on a shoot with a client, I always seem to have several people pull me aside to tell me how much they love my Sweet Paul magazine for its creativity, beautiful photography and unexpected ideas.
In Spring 2012, the first print edition of the magazine was launched in Anthropologie stores nationwide. Now I'm working on distribution in Anthropologie UK and specialty stock lists worldwide. Like the magazine's tagline, I am continually "chasing the sweet things in life."

This is such a beautifully written and photographed book, and the recipes and craft ideas are wonderful.

Being a huge cookbook addict and fan of Sweet Paul Magazine we didn't expect anything less than a gorgeous and well presented book.
B. Smith
I really hope to buy this book all I can say is before seeing it that I follow them online and have done food blogs about them.

This is the type of book that will keep you coming back for more. You can easily cook and craft your way through the entire thing! Each page more beautiful than the next. Perfect for those who appreciate simple recipes that inspire. Gorgeous images, tasteful DIY ideas, and fantastic fuss-free show-stopping recipes! I've already made the roasted chicken with olives and lemon; perfection. It's made it into my weekly rotation. World's Best Cake is up next!

We all love Sweet Paul! From his wonderful blog to his gorgeous magazine and now to his book - the name says it all, Sweet Paul.

His recipes challenge your taste buds to accept new and different flavors together in the same dish.

His crafts are so clever and so easy - most are great to do with children. To almost all of them I ask myself "Why didn't I think of that?

His pictures of residences and environments capture a scene and somehow just provoke the creative spirit.

Ahhhhhhhhh, thanks Sweet Paul!

I was highly impressed by Sweet Paul's Winter 2013/2014 magazine, so much so that I immediately ordered the book before release as well as a one year subscription to his magazine. disappointed in both. There are 2 or 3 recipes of interest but outside of that that this book seems to be geared more towards young women who are looking for an elementary and simpler approach than Martha Stewart. The crafts to me seem frivolous at best and a step up from elementary school arts and crafts. It went immediately in the donation pile. For the record, I cooked almost everything out of his Winter 2013/2014 magazine. For the other two issues that have shown up at my door, they have gotten a quick and disappointing flip threw then put out with recycling. Sorry Sweet Paul, I truly wanted to be a supporter of you. I wish you the best!

Every since I made a plum cake recipe from one of the magazines I've been a grateful fan of Sweet Paul's sensibilities and recipes. So when this book came out we bought one for ourselves and a couple for friends. I'm slowly working my way through it food-wise and I have to say it's everything I expected.

I have always loved Sweet Paul, but this book makes me adore him even more. Each beautiful page is filled with either a recipe or fun kitchen crafting project (think mason jars, dishcloths, etc.) that correspond with a specific time of day. How creative is that? The artwork scattered throughout the book is beautiful and inspiring as well. I bought one copy of the book yesterday at my local bookstore and then hopped on Amazon last night to purchase more copies for all the special women in my life as Mother's Day presents.
Thanks, Sweet Paul. Your sweetness is now over the top!

I cannot stop looking through this book. I plan to make a dinner from it every week ... and cannot decide where to start. All of the recipes look and sound delicious. I have been a fan of the magazine for years and have to say that this book is everything that I had hoped it would be. Beautiful photographs and wonderful recipes ... you will not be disappointed!

Paul Lowe has gathered a collection of his recipes, crafts, and personal stories that reads more like a memoir than a Do-It-Yourself handbook. Though I am no cook, I am committed to attempting several dishes based solely on their simple yet unexpected combination of ingredients. His craft ideas also use common, everyday items but yield elegant and charming results. His personal recollections provide insight into his creativity and motivation and set this work apart from so many others in the genre. The book itself is a work of art. From the photography and typefaces to the layout and hand of the paper, no detail is left unattended. Whether you are a serious cook and/or crafter or simply have a interest in enjoying the small pleasures in life, this book is a must for your library.

Although the recipes and craft projects are amazing I bought this book because of his personality. He is so entertaining and I enjoy every single one of his stories. My fav is the anecdote about the LV case. He is a wonderful storyteller with a unique personality. The photos of the food are inspiring yet simple to make. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes cooking regardless of their level. This book is best enjoyed with a cup of tea.
