Who doesn’t love a good cookbook? At a time when we find ourselves reading 90% of written content on a screen, the act of cracking open a cookbook for the first time is kind of magic. We can delight in the solid feel of the paper, the new book (or old library) smell, the eye-candy photos, the methodical nature of the recipes, and in all of the effort that went into the creation of a useful trove of information! Cookbooks are aspirational, inspirational, and to any home cook like me, educational. In the year since we opened Orange Door Kitchen, Chris and I have spent a lot of time reading and talking with our colleagues and guests about cookbooks. We know that we’re not the only ones obsessed with collecting and exploring cookbooks, so by popular demand, we’re starting a cookbook club for our community!
What is it about avocado toast that makes people not think twice about paying $10 for a slice of bread and toppings? It’s simple and delicious…but, in our humble opinion, it’s time for an update. That’s why Orange Door Kitchen is rocking a toast menu at our Fugitive at the Door live music nights for the next 4 months. We think it’s high time that West Acton had a spot to get great toast (for less than $10, mind you) and we can’t wait for you to explore this fabulous canvas for culinary creativity with us.
