From the Publisher

Cookie swaps are joyful. Cookie swaps are social. Cookie swaps are hip yet old-school, trendy yet traditional. Cookie swaps are creative, inexpensive, DIY, and a great way to entertain. Cookie swaps are baking meets Stitch ’n Bitch, with newspapers, magazines, and websites—including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Better Homes and Gardens, Real Simple, Family Fun, Southern Living, Kraft.com, and Ed Levine’s Serious Eats—all writing about the trend. Cookie Swap! captures all of this and more in an idea-packed, slightly sassy guide.

On the one hand, it’s all about the swap: when to swap (Christmas, of course, and other holidays, but also birthdays, bridal showers, graduation parties, PTA meetings, and fund-raisers—or just at your next book club meeting). And how to swap—with a planner, cookie swap math guide (so everyone gets the same number of cookies), ideas for invitations, decorations, containers, and then, when the crumbs have settled, how to make a keepsake.

On the other hand, it’s all about the cookies. Lauren Chattman is a former professional pastry chef and baking writer who’s put together a knockout collection of more than 60 delectable, easy-to-make, simple-to-sophisticated recipes covering every kind of cookie—from crowd-pleasing favorites like Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies to unexpected treats like Flaky Cardamom Palmiers and Green Tea Sandwich Cookies with Almond Cream. Finally, the book ends with a chapter of drink recipes—such as Iced Irish Coffee, Mini Strawberry Milk Shakes and Juicy Sangria—because not every cookie wants milk.

The Chef Of The Future Makes Only One Dish Crab Bisque à La Robot.

A FEW WEEKS BEFORE CHRISTMAS, I FLEW ACROSS THE ATLANTIC INTO OUR CULINARY FUTURE, WHERE A ROBOT WOULD COOK ME A BOWL OF FANCY SOUP. Like most of us, I’ve eaten food prepared by a robot before. On my flight from New York to London, for example, the meal I was served—a microwaved chicken sponge in salt-lick tomato sauce, accompanied by uniformly cylindrical green and yellow wax beans—was certainly made by machines. Same goes for the Diet Coke I drank, and the prepackaged granola bar I ate instead of the chicken. But this robot, whose name is Moley, was promising something more than fast, chea

Trends We’re Tired Of

Ticketed Restaurant Reservations I’m all for restaurateurs attempting to drum up a sense of occasion, but are we having a casual dinner here or are we seeing a Broadway show? Char (or Embers, or Volcanic Ash) on Everything Here are the ground rules going forward: Yes to steak, barbecue, and bourbon. No to garden produce, ice cream, certain cheeses, and pretty much everything else. Sea-Urchin Pasta on Every Italian Menu This ubiquitous (and, yes, mostly delicious) dish has officially become the fettuccine Alfredo of our postmillennial dining age.
