America-The-Cookbook

Break out your Rex Kwon Do star spangled pants and find yourself a bald eagle, it’s time to celebrate America. America: The Cookbook is an ode to incredible food and food culture this great land has to offer. From writer Gabrielle Langholtz along with publish house Phaidon, this cookbook is filled with 800 recipes for your to master by the next Fourth of July. Still, this is far from a simple cookbook, which you could probably have guessed if you’re familiar with Phaidon. Also included are 50 essays, each describing an individual state’s grub. Then you have menus from celebrated chefs and food experts to pore over. So put on the ballgame, pour yourself some bourbon, and get to cooking.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
