In a dream world, the It’s Nice That team would spend the bulk of their time flicking through gorgeously designed publications and cooking extravagant dinners. We’d think nothing of preparing a six course lunch before reclining on the sofa for a pre-Pointless dip into that stack of New Yorker’s that’s been cluttering up the coffee table since March. With that out of the way, it’d be time for dinner.
Here in reality, we’ll make do with the just-released third annual instalment of Cookbook, the foodie arm of interiors bible Apartamento. Following on from the cake-focused debut and its soupy successor, this issue takes a long, hard, and loving look at that most humble of stapes: rice.
As ever, Apartamento has assembled an all-star culinary crew to take the reader on a gastronomic journey, and it’s brought firm INT favourite Stefan Marx along for the ride. The man responsible for some of the century’s most charming record sleeves has been tasked with providing a visual companion to each of the publication’s recipes.
The grain-worshipers dishing out advice on all things pilau include the River Cafe’s Ruth Rogers, Nuno Mendes of Chilton Firehouse fame, and rapper Loyle Carner. Limited to just 1500 copies, any food fanatics reading this are advised to put in an order ASAP.
