Things We’re Talking About

  • Food on table
  • Wine Food Book
  • WINE FOOD

    “I’m obsessed with Wine Food—it’s one part cookbook, one part pairing guide. Wine expert Dana Frank and chef Andrea Slonecker have teamed up on a collection of recipes, menus, producer recs, wine factoids, and—my personal favorite—these brilliant pairing cheat sheets. Ever wondered which bottle goes best with takeout? (Try a rosé for with chicken tikka and a Cabernet Franc with a gyro.) And junk food? A white Burgundy goes best with Lay’s potato chips. A Montepulciano d’Abruzzo with a frozen pizza. The tone of the book is totally fun, approachable, and inspiring.”

  • Stretch*d lobby
  • STRETCHED

    “I love SLT founder Amanda Freeman’s new Flatiron studio, Stretch*d, which offers fifty-five-minute sessions where you’ll work one-on-one with a trainer who will completely stretch you out, targeting specific areas where you’re tight. It works better than any massage or workout I’ve come across—and it makes my sessions with a personal trainer even more effective. Stretch*d even makes house calls.” 
    —Jennifer Hyman, CEO and cofounder, Rent the Runway

  • Cabana Magazine
  • PRINTS CHARMING

    Cabana is this a great design magazine that comes out only twice a year, in huge volumes with special fabric covers designed in collaboration with the likes of Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Schumacher. The photography is lush and beautiful, and it dives into the homes of interior designers, architects, and artists. Every issue is a true keepsake. The only problem is it sells out quickly, and back issues go for as much as $500. Luckily, Cabana Anthology is coming out next month, a kind of ‘best-of’ collection of interviews, profiles, and features from the first five years of publication. I can’t wait to catch up on past stories I’ve missed.”

    “On September 13, Miu Miu Type launches at Maxfield Los Angeles with a customizable capsule collection featuring a stylized initial of your choice. It’s got everything from poplin shirts to hoodies and track pants—my personal favorite. It’s kind of like dabbling in streetwear but making a little more personal and perhaps a little less obvious. Plus, who doesn’t want an excuse to buy more sweats?”

  • Vana wellnesss retreat in India
  • INTO THE WOODS

    “Vana, in Dehradun, India, is a wellness retreat journey meets magic. Here, in a lush forest, healers in Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and homeopathy work with you. Food is prepared to suit your Ayurvedic constitution, so you feel your body clicking into place because it is being fed what it needs and deserves. My favorite daily ritual was lying bare on a treatment table in a dark room. The windows looked out into the vast forest, and you’re lulled into a trance by the sounds of heavy rainfall. A rhythmic massage is performed with copious amounts of warm oil infused with herbs to untangle the knots and open your chakras. My body felt free, and my soul was able to connect with nature in a way that words cannot describe.”
    —Dr. Nigma Talib, naturopathic doctor

  • 4 Charles Prime Rib in the West Village NY
  • PRIME TIME

    “There are a few restaurants that strike a particular kind of magic—the kind where you know someone is having the night of their life. A few months ago at 4 Charles Prime Rib in the West Village, that person was me. I went in to celebrate my last meal in New York City before relocating to LA. It’s dark, intimate, and the kind of place that inspires mostly pescatarian wine drinkers like me to order a cheeseburger and two fingers of scotch—neat. The staff even has a sense of humor: Instead of dessert, they sent us out what they called LA’s version of dessert: mini avocado toasts.”

    “With summer and fall travel, I’m always searching for a perfect transition shoe. Our Astara Sahara Mules have been my wardrobe staple: They’re embellished with crystal quartz, and no matter how many flights I’ve been on or city blocks I’ve strolled, I still feel centered.”

  • Popup Magazine
  • STORY HOUR

    “Before I went to this for the first time, I already had an off-putting amount of enthusiasm for the idea of it. Even if you’re not a magazine nerd, consider: Do you like stories? Do you like to learn stuff and be entertained and laugh a lot and maybe also shed a tear, all in one sitting? Are you not a monster? All right then. The fall ‘issue’—which has an awesome lineup of reporters and writers (Rebecca Skloot! Ed Yong! Ann Friedman!)—will hit SF, DC, NY, LA, Portland, and Toronto before wrapping in Chicago. The shows aren’t recorded in any form, which is both a major bummer and also essential to the magic of it.”

  • ONE-AND-DONE

    “As a physical therapist, my day is spent constantly moving, so I want to be comfortable but still look pulled together. It’s an even greater challenge these days now that I’m twenty weeks pregnant. So when I was introduced by a friend to an Ilana Kohn jumpsuit that accommodates my growing bump, I was hooked. I bought it in two colors.”

  • SORBABES

    “I’ve always been a purist when it comes to dessert—I’ll take ice cream any day. But lately, I’ve been craving this sorbet. Gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan, it’s made with fresh fruit purées and nut butters. It’s so insanely creamy and indulgent, it almost confuses me. How can it taste so much like ice cream but still be dairy-free?”

  • GROOVY, BABY

    “These are without a doubt the grooviest shoes I’ve ever laid eyes on. And this is from a person who has a separate closet just for clogs. Forget that they make you the tallest person in the room. Or that they’re made with organic cotton and are entirely sustainable. What I die for about these shoes is that they are proof the ’70s will always be the coolest decade.”

  • Follow Me to Ground by Sue Rainsford book
  • NOVEL IDEA

    “Generally speaking, other than #goopbookclub picks, I tend to stick to biographies. But friends could not stop harping on about writer and researcher Sue Rainsford’s literary debut Follow Me to Ground. This dark, moody, sometimes tense, could-not-put-it-down novel tackles—with clever subtlety—our perception of the body and its limitations, sickness, sexuality, and patriarchal norms. I couldn’t—and frankly still can’t—decide whether I’m terrified or in awe of protagonist Ada and her healing powers. Follow Me doesn’t really fit into any strict genre. The eerie, misty landscape; the narrative; and, of course, the ground aren’t easily forgotten.”

  • WILD WILD COUNTRY

    “A ski trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has been at the top of my wish list for years. But when the opportunity to visit the new Caldera House came up this summer—and fortuitously right in the middle of our two-week companywide summer holiday—I couldn’t say no. The property is made up of eight suites, each with two or four bedrooms. LA-based Commune (the folks behind the Ace DTLA and Tartine in SF) did the design for the lobby and public spaces, as well as the suite I stayed in. The design is pretty spot-on: It doesn’t hit you over the head with alpine charm, but instead, there’s blonde wood throughout, marble and brass details, worn-in leather chairs, and Moroccan rugs. The team will arrange everything from forest bathing and fly-fishing to horseback riding at Spring Creek Ranch. There’s so much to see, too, starting with Grand Teton National Park, where you’ll easily encounter bison, mama and baby moose, and packs of pronghorn. The town square is utterly charming—Persephone Bakery is my favorite spot for coffee, sandwiches, and an important midday cookie break.”
    —Nandita Khanna, editorial projects director, goop
