Bostwick and Rymill began making beer in the spring of 2009 with the help of a homebrew kit. Their first batch, however, exploded—glass bottles and all—in their living room. After six months of troubleshooting and experimenting as hobbyists, they hunkered

Beer Craft: A Guide to Homebrew

William Bostwick and Jessi Rymill's new book Beer Craft: A Simple Guide to Making Great Beer is like Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything—just for homebrew hobbyists. In the book, the writer-designer duo outlines the basic steps of brewing then give you all the information you need to improvise and make each batch your own. Unlike the homebrew books that have come before, Beer Craft is designed for folks like Bostwick and Rymill: urban DIYers living in small, city apartments. "Most books are written for making five gallons at a time, which is a lot" Bostwick says. "Our book focuses on small, one-gallon batches you can easily make on your stove."

Bertazzoni Family Recipes

At Bertazzoni, it's all about—and all in the—family. The high-end Italian cooking appliance company was founded in 1882 and today is helmed by Paolo Bertazzoni, a fifth generation Bertazzoni businessman, who works closely with family members like daughter Valentina, who is the company's brand manager based in New York City. Bertazzoni recently launched its new built-in oven collection and newest cooktops in the United States—but what's an oven and cooktop without something to cook. Here, we share two of the family's favorite recipes.

Bertazzoni built in oven and cooktop

Paolo and Valentina Bertazzoni

This week, Italian kitchen appliance manufacturer Bertazzoni introduced its new line of built-in ovens designed for the U.S. market and unveiled its newest cooktops as well. We sat down with Paolo Bertazzoni, the company's CEO and a fifth-generation Bertazzoni family leader, and his daughter Valentina Bertazzoni, an architect by training and the company's U.S. brand manager, at the Purcell Murray showroom in Brisbane, California, just south of San Francisco and the Dwell headquarters. Here, they share their thoughts on the differences between the Italian and American markets, how they arrived at these new designs, and how the built-in ovens' interfaces can help you make the perfect meal (and then do it again later).

What We Saw Austin Texas

Three Days in Austin, Texas

Last week I flew down to Austin, Texas, to report two stories for our upcoming modern-across-America-themed issue (stay tuned!). I met with several architects, enjoyed coffee at the home of a soon-to-be-featured couple, went camping, feasted on tacos from a food truck that came highly recommended by Dwell Twitter followers, and even fed a longhorn.

Bialetti Aeternum saute pan

Bialetti’s Aeternum Cookware

If you've ever seen a Moka stovetop espresso maker—and what design or coffee fan hasn't (especially visitors to the Museum of Modern Art in New York where it's part of the permanent collection)—then you've seen the work of Italian designer Alfonso Bialetti and his eponymous company Bialetti. A product line from the manufacturer that is, however, probably less known in the United States is its Aeternum cookware, which I recently tested out.

Handle Me by AWAA cast iron cookware

AWAA's Cast Iron Cookware

There are few things nicer than cooking in cast iron (you can make everything from casseroles to cookies in such a skillet). At this year's Milan Furniture Fair, design team Angell Wyller Aarseth presented a selection of cast-iron kitchen tools worthy of giving Le Creuset a run for its money.

Butterfly Gap Retreat

Butterfly Gap Retreat

At the Butterfly Gap Retreat just outside Knoxville, Tennessee, managing the design, construction, and rental of modern guesthouses is a family affair. Built as alternatives to the ubiquitous log cabin found in the state, the 900-acre destination features six rental homes, among the most recent being a 900-square-foot, handicap-accessible wood-and-glass abode.
