While you don’t need any extras to escape into a book, reading—like most forms of self-care—offers the option to accessorize. We rounded up our favorites for stimulating the senses, sending subtle (but effective) do-not-disturb signals to your housemates, and keeping your skin fresh for virtual book club.
GP said it best: “Pizza is the greatest food of all time.” When David Nayfeld, chef and co-owner of San Francisco’s Che Fico, visited GP, they turned his signature sourdough into two different pies with incredibly flavorful crusts. We took down the recipes for the simple margherita pizza and Brussels sprouts, pancetta, and ricotta combo—along with Nayfeld’s instructions for those who want to make his dough from scratch.
GP whipped up three holiday appetizers in goop's brand-new test kitchen. With just a handful of high-quality ingredients and a few moments to chop and prep, she made a mix of “garlicky,” “impressive,” and “crispy and sweet” hors d’oeuvres that, she said, will make people “think you’re so fancy.”
After a few months of working remotely, we’ve discovered a handful of home-office heroes: These are the tools that have converted our dining chairs into lumbar-supporting thrones, the tech that helps us stay hydrated and focused, and a couple of indulgences that make our desks more compelling than, say, the couch.
It’s finally beautiful outside—and everyone’s understandably hot to get together. If you’re thinking of throwing a party or attending one, we’ve compiled some great advice from an epidemiologist and an event planner. So whether you’re having people over for dinner, lounging together by the pool, or throwing a (small) rager, read this first, for safety, glamour, and fun.
We discovered British Ayurvedic chef Radhi Devlukia on Instagram: With her video recipes for iced tahini matcha lattes, charred turmeric fennel, and Japanese squash burgers (many set to music with TikTok-inspired dance breaks), Devlukia makes cooking look spirited, fun, and very delicious. There’s a secret to it, she says: Be present. Here, Devlukia shares her “conscious cooking” tips, along with all the essentials she stocks in her kitchen.
Cookbooks are wonderful for much more than just recipes: They give inspiration, guidance, insight, and a welcome respite. Right now, we’re very grateful for some new favorites that are expanding our repertoires and introducing us to fresh voices and ideas, and of course, more gorgeous photography to pore over.
These three recipes use up that leftover chicken, so you don’t have to spend another minute deciding what to make for dinner. Try a spicy, smoky green chili stew with white beans. Creamy tahini chicken salad is excellent on toast with pickled veggies. And the chicken tacos with jalapeño slaw are so easy and so satisfying—they beat takeout BBQ.
It’s prime grilling season, and we’ve collected the recipes for it. Of course we’ve included some of the hits—steak, shrimp, and eggplant are favorites for a reason—but if you’ve never grilled romaine lettuce or kale for a salad, or a piece of stone fruit for dessert, now is the time to give it a try.
