COOK SPACE FRIDAY FEELS | Sweater Weather

Info Cook Space

promofashion2 copy.jpg

With sweater weather apparently in full swing and the chaos of fashion week coming to a close, we’re excited to kick off our stilettos and settle in for a cozy chill out of a weekend (Self -Care September has some serious bedroom benefits, if you need extra convincing). And though NY will still have to wait another term before electing its first female governor (note to self: avoid a somewhat controversial bagel order if running for political office), yesterday’s election marks an encouraging trend toward a more progressive political tapestry in the coming years and months.

 

With Hurricane Florence on the horizon, our thoughts are with the Carolinas and all areas potentially affected - for details on how to lend support, look into ways the American Red Cross and the North Carolina Community Organization are helping.

Labor day has come and gone, but the heat (oy, the heat!) lingers on. We’ve been cooling off with our pickling parties and looking ahead to a Fall of feasting, replete with all of our seasonal favorites (and year round classics of course). And though the vacation may be over and we’re hitting the grindstone hard, September is also self-care awareness month - so be sure to balance out your serious schedules with some serious self-indulgence.

S U M M E R    S E N D - O F F

August, with it’s steamy subways and delightfully unpredictable flash floods, has come to a close. And though Labor Day marks, for some, the end of summer Fridays, white trousers (a rule we firmly reject) and calendars chock full of patio potlucks, we’re not entirely mad at it. With a slew of new, exciting openings across the city, and an Autumn lineup of classes we can’t wait to tuck into, we’ve got full on Fall fever.

 

That said, we’re maximizing these last few moments of sanctioned summer lethargy, unwinding, unplugging and, quite likely, undressing entirely until Tuesday. 

 

Happy Labor Day to All!

We’re a people who like to repurpose - from carting around our own coffee cups to gourmet-ing up our brekkie with a little fridge door relish, we don’t like to waste things, particularly when it comes to food. With our upcoming Preserving Summer class we’re making every morsel of this magical season count (can it be possible there’s just one week left!), while whole heartedly embracing the long awaited shift toward creating a cleaner planet.

The world lost a Queen yesterday. The passing of such a vibrant  and powerful voice, whose impact extended well beyond the stage is an astonishing blow. Yet though we may have many miles to go,  as we inch towards equality across all communities, we’re taking a beat this weekend and belting out her ballads into our makeshift microphones (whisks) to celebrate a woman whose soul, strength and spirit has inspired us for  over half a century.

 

“American History wells up when Aretha sings. Nobody embodies more fully the connection between the African-American spiritual, the blues, R&B, rock’n’roll - the way that hardship and sorrow were transformed into something full of beauty and vitality and hope.” - Barack Obama
