I am so sad to hear of Ron Zimmerman 's passing. We were friendly back in my PNW days when I owned Quel Fromage. He was exceptionally kind and generous, and planned to contribute a few recipes to my book, when I was still writing about cheese.
I love a good spine. Polpo's is definitely unique, I don't think I've ever seen another cookbook with a spine like that.
Cookbook design conversations are my favorite. I love how in the UK things feel more inventive and design forward with book design. I’s interesting to idéate around what the American culture threshold is between art books and cookbooks and how far we can push that envelope out of the mainstream and still sell a good number.
