In Everything I Want to Eat, Koslow shares more than 100 of her favourite recipes, filling her book with plenty of vegetarian and vegan offerings, but, like her restaurant, offering up options for the bacon-eaters among us as well. Koslow helps readers strike a balance at home, teaching them how to make some of her most popular dishes: Burnt brioche toast with ricotta and jam; the Sorrel-pesto rice bowl topped with a poached egg; Valrhona chocolate fleur de sel cookies; and more. The ingredients called for are a modern mash-up of vegetables, grains, and spices from the world over. The recipes are unfussy but thought provoking. They will inspire home cooks to reach beyond their comfort zones flavour-wise-to learn a new, exciting way to eat every day.

Netflixs BoJack Horseman has quickly become one of the most critically acclaimed animated comedy series in recent memory. Set in an off-kilter, cynically spun rendering of modern-day Hollywood, the show follows washed-up horse actor BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett) as he attempts to turn his life around. BoJack Horseman: The Art Before the Horse is the official behind-the-scenes companion to this cult-hit series. Part oral history sourced from original interviews with the shows cast and crew, part art book--including sketches, storyboards, and background art--this book will trace the series from conception to post-production. Beginning with the initial development of creator/ showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg and production designer Lisa Hanawalts inimitable aesthetic vision, The Art Before the Horse goes on to reveal all of the moving parts--direction, writing, casting, animation, and music--that come together to form this uniquely bleak, emotionally potent, very funny show. Also Available: BoJack Horseman 2019 Wall Calendar (ISBN: 978-1-4197-3177-8) ;
