Modern Cookware, Old and New

One of the best parts of working at Dwell is the neverending onslaught of modern home goods we get to see, from dishtowels to doorknobs to desktop speakers. And after wrapping up September's entertaining issue, we've had kitchens on the brain. Two recent cookware introductions have especially piqued my interest: one, a Danish modern classic re-introduced to the mass market courtesy of Crate & Barrel; the other, a brand-new collection of "serving" cookware from Alessi.

HOT POT BBQ

Hot Pot by Black+Blum

Most BBQs can flame grill a burger just fine, but for the 355 or so days out of the year that it isn't in use, Black+Blum's Hot Pot one-ups its counterparts: The terra cotta cooker ($124) also doubles as an herb planter.

Entertaining Tips from Dwell Contributors

It took a small army of contributing writers and photographers to bring the stories in our first-ever entertaining issue, Open House (September 2012), to life. Many are consummate hosts themselves and we polled a few to get the low down on their go-to recipes and party advice. Read on for mixology tips, an easy summer meal, and one way to set the vibe for a casual get together that involves a muted surf movie.

Cocktail Hour in Borrego Springs

In our September issue, we visited the Borrego Springs, California, home of Doug and Stacey Chapman Paton. Not only are they great collectors of mid-century art and design, but the couple also hosts the grooviest parties in town. Dab hands at the cocktail shaker, they shared with us two cocktail recipes that Stacey invented, both reliant on the fabulous citrus that grows in the nearby desert. Try this at home.

Coffee Break: Albany's Local 123

San Francisco has its fair share of third-wave coffee so we jumped at the chance to visit one of the East Bay's newest offerings. On a pleasantly sleepy stretch of Solano Avenue, Berkeley-based Local 123 opened a cafe within Flowerland nursery. From a charming 1969 Airstream Streamline Princess trailer, proprietor Frieda Hoffman and her business partner Alex Ebel churn out lattes, macchiatos, single-drip cups of coffee, and more. And the setting—a verdant nursery—couldn't be more right. Hoffman's "perma-popup" is opposite of what we've come to expect from the many cafes that seem to be victims of their success. Instead of chaotic snaking lines of undercaffeinated denizens jonesin' for their morning fix, we were treated to a peaceful garden setting, and gladly traded the drone of indie rock for the chirp of birds. Local 123's menu features coffee from Four Barrel, vegan donuts from Pepples, and pastries from Starter Bakery. Have a look inside the cafe in our slideshow.
