Featured Recipes from Sweet Paul Eat and Make
"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
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."
Top Customer Reviews
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!
Thanks, Sweet Paul. Your sweetness is now over the top!
