Break Bread With the CFDA in ‘American Fashion Cookbook’

August 18, 2009 • Fashion


Just in time for fashion week the CFDA has revealed another trick
they've got up their well-tailored sleeves. In addition to drawing,
sewing, and supervising the operations of superior labels, who knew so
many designers could cook?!!
The 'American Fashion Cookbook: 100
Designer's Best Recipes'
is a bright, sunny new volume that shows  CFDA designers insist on eating well, and like their fashions,
many of their most satisfying creations need to come from their own
hand. Isaac Mizrahi reveals the delicacies of his recipe for Mushroom Truffle Spaghetti while Carolina Herrera revels in her Pommes Toupinel. Derek Lam's Yellowtail Crudo would be perfect alongside John Varvatos' Calaloo Soup—and topped off with Mark Ecko's "Adults Only" Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. The $45 hardcover boasts dishes as stylish and gussied up as their makers, including tips and tricks on everything from a romantic four-course dinner to comfort food. It even includes blank, culinary-themed Proustian questionnaires at the back of the book to entertain party guests and turn you into the ultimate haute host. With texts by Lisa March and an foreward by Martha Stewart, 'American Fashion Cookbook' seems to seamlessly blend the decadent worlds of design and culinary arts. And gives  those of us who can't draw another chance at creating something fabulous a fashion designer would be proud of.
