The Booksmith is excited to host Gabi Moskowitz and Miranda Berman as they introduce their new cookbook Hot Mess KitchenJoin us at The Bindery!

Hot Mess Kitchen has been touted as THE cookbook for our take-out and delivery-ruled society. It's for the cook who's never been interested in cooking, who doesn’t know the importance of a good knife, or how to clean cast iron, or that, according to Gabi and Miranda, the broiler is the G-spot of the kitchen.


Can’t stop yourself from comparing your awesome life to the lives of your Facebook friends? If so, the Schadenfreude Sundae is tailor-made for you, and the accompanying essay will make you feel like you’re not alone in the game of one-upmanship. 


Or maybe you’re freaking out about all your friends getting engaged, in that case the All My Friends Are Married Mud Pie is the way to go. Clearly, we have your emotional eating covered. 


Do you spend too much money on delivery? Among the many recipes included to help you cut out delivery costs, one of the most exciting to me was a step-by-step on sushi. According to Gabi, any hot mess can make sushi, and it’s true. It’s up to you whether you choose to wear it a la Sex and the City.


It’s impossible not to relate to the tales of woe Gabi and Miranda have in store. And if, like me, you choose to read more than you cook, you’re still getting two new kitchen friends – they’ll just sit at your table and drink the wine they taught you how to make taste better. 



"I came for the recipes and stayed for the funny, personal writing. How could you not love a book with recipes like "Fuck It, Let's Just Get Stoned Nachos" and "All My Friends Are Married Mud Pie"? Surely there is not one among you who has not felt both sentiments. You could buy this book and enjoy it without ever taking out your oven mitts." ― Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?
