2010 has been an absolutely marvelous year for us here at Seattle Bon Vivant. And yes, I plan to sit down and properly write about some of my personal highlights of 2010 before the new year arrives.
But, for now, I wanted to share a few favorites from this year: cookbooks I've been reading and using, kitchen tools that have made my everyday baking, preserving and cooking more enjoyable and travel essentials that I can't see myself being without.
I've even included a recommendation for the one film that I find epitomizes the year in cinema for me. I hope you can find some new read or favorite thing for you to try in this collection.
Since some of these recommendations have been shared with me by good friends (ciao Marta!) and while I have your attention, please share your own favorite reads, kitchen and travel essentials of the year in the comment section. On December 31st, I'll use random.org to select a comment and will *mail you a copy of Salted by Mark Bitterman. So, do tell!
*USA addresses only, please. Thank you.
Updated January 5th, 2011: Using random.org we got the #1, so the first person who left a comment won the copy of Salted. Congratulations Shirley! You got the book yesterday. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. xo
