goop mag #5

I recently discovered Kitchit, an awesome service in NY, LA, Chicago and the Bay Area that hooks you up with one of any number of their chefs who specialize in almost any kind of cuisine. You choose the price, type of food, etc., and someone shows up at your door to make a special meal. Could be a dinner for two, or a party. I vetted them when I was in Los Angeles and had a full day with both the super cool Chef Ariane Resnick, who was put to the test with a million dietary restrictions (she is one of their special dietary needs masters) and awesomely affable Chef Joey Santos. Recipes for both days below.

Our culture/design editor Eliza went to Berlin for a long weekend to bring us the best of art and design. The galleries, collections, studios are difficult to know about as they can be private or hidden, requiring reservations or a guide. She's done all the work for us. And a few other bits.

Summer Concerts


We found this super useful app, Songkick, which scans your iTunes library and lets you know in advance when your favorite bands and artists are playing live near you.

Collector's Editions

With so much great information available out there on websites and blogs both big and small, the role of the print magazine is changing. More and more, print publications are providing content with a much longer shelf-life. We’ve picked out our current favorite independent magazines and journals that, with beautiful writing, photography and illustration, are becoming true collector’s items.

Gather Journal
Now in it’s 3rd edition, Gather features beautifully styled and photographed recipes around one central theme. Their summer issue revolves around film, taking classic movies and teaching us how to make the food that films such as Psycho and The Royal Tennenbaums evoke.

The Gentlewoman
Interviews and features on women who inspire from Beyoncé to fashion designer Isabel Marant to podiatrist Margaret Dobbs with sleek (mostly) black & white portraits and fashion spreads.

In Vegas last week we ate at Jaleo, met up with José Andrés and ate a f*@$king incredible meal which included this Escalivada Catalana.

Exploring Art & Design in Berlin

Berlin is known for having one of the most vibrant international art scenes and it’s also known to be one of the most difficult to tap into. Many galleries and art spaces are tucked into alleyways and buildings that aren’t immediately obvious to the casual passerby. We consulted some of our in the know friends there, like Ambra Medda of L'Arco Baleno (below), and went searching for the best places to find art and design on a weekend trip. Here’s what we discovered:

Stay... on a Modern House Boat

The guys at Welcome Beyond, a go-to for unique places to stay around the world, (check out their "Custom Property Search" service for even more tailored options) invited us to stay as their guests in a newly-built and spacious houseboat located on a harbor on a Spree river bay. With beautiful views, and outfitted top to bottom in contemporary design, it’s a world away from Berlin’s busy streets.

Berlin’s best mode of transport.

Get around the bicycle friendly city on Bella Ciao bikes, which come with the boat and make it easy to get from one art space to the next.

On the street...

Graffiti artists come to Berlin from all over the world... GoArt! Berlin, which comes highly recommended, do a Street Art tour by bike, among other themed tours.

The "Sammlungs"

The somewhat forbidding entrances to the Sammlung Boros and the Sammlung Haubrok are a stark contrast to the stunning collections inside. They are perhaps the best representations of Berlin's contemporary art scene.
