Everything I Want to Eat

Size Guide

We will be listening to everything fellow Angeleno Jessica Koslow and Sqirl 'preaches' once we tasted her Seascape Strawberry and Rose Geranium Jam. It was nearly a religious event for us one Sea Ranch morning with old friends, artisan bread, local butter and that jam! 

The debut cookbook from Jessica Koslow, award-winning chef of LA’s popular restaurant Sqirl, featuring more than 100 fresh, market-driven, healthy, and flavorful recipes.

Jessica Koslow and her restaurant, Sqirl, are at the forefront of the California cooking renaissance, which is all about food that surprises us and engages all of our senses—it looks good, tastes vibrant, and feels fortifying yet refreshing. In Everything I Want to Eat, Koslow shares 100 of her favorite recipes for health-conscious but delicious dishes, all of which always use real foods—no fake meat or fake sugar here—that also happen to be suitable for vegetarians, vegans, or whomever you’re sharing your meal with.

The book is organized into seven chapters, each featuring a collection of recipes centered on a key ingredient or theme. Expect to find recipes for dishes Sqirl has become known for, as well as brand-new seasonal flavor combinations, including:

  • Raspberry and cardamom jam
  • Sorrel-pesto rice bowl
  • Burnt brioche toast with house ricotta and seasonal jam
  • Lamb merguez, cranberry beans, roasted tomato, and yogurt cheese
  • Valrhona chocolate fleur de sel cookies
  • Almond hazelnut milk

Koslow lives in LA, where everyone is known to be obsessively health-conscious and where dietary restrictions are the norm. People come into Sqirl and order dishes with all sorts of substitutions and modifications—hold the feta, please, add extra kale. They are looking to make their own healthy adventures. Others may tack breakfast sausage, cured bacon, or Olli’s prosciutto on to their order. So Koslow has had to constantly think about ways to modify dishes for certain diets, which in a way has made her a better, more adaptable cook.

Throughout this book, Koslow provides notes and thought bubbles that show how just about any dish can be modified for specific tastes and dietary needs, whether it needs to be gluten-free or vegan.

Everything I Want to Eat captures the excitement of the food at Sqirl—think of a classic BLT sandwich turned playful with the substitution of chicken skin “bacon”—while also offering accessible recipes, like tangerine and rosewater semolina cake, that can be easily made in the home kitchen. Moreover, it’s an entirely new kind of cookbook and approach to how we are all starting to think about food, allowing readers to play with the recipes, combining and shaping them to be nothing short of everything you want to eat.

Praise for Jessica Koslow and Sqirl:

“Koslow’s dishes managed to galvanize the very narrow crossover of food writers and L.A. salad obsessives. Turns out that in her hands, breakfast and lunch are what people want to eat all day long.” —Bon Appétit

“I would say that Koslow and I are culinary soul mates, but given the popularity of the place, it’s clear that I’m not the only one. This is food whose time has come.” —Mark Bittman

Size Chart

Marimekko Sizing

Size charts can help you to determine your own size. When you order clothes, it is worth remembering that using a tape measure can help you to ensure that the clothes are a good fit. This will help you to avoid returning clothes unnecessarily. The pictures show where you should take measurements. The measurements on the size chart are fixed body measurements in inches. The measurements are for normal body shapes (the basis is the C measurement).
 

A – Collar:
The collar size is measured by placing the tape measure around the neck and placing the index finger between the tape measure and the throat. This measurement dictates the shirt size.

B – Bust:
The bust size is measured from the highest point of the bust when a bra is worn.

C – Waist:
The waist size is measured around the narrowest part of the waist.

D – Hip:
The hip measurement is taken from the broadest part of the hip.

E – Inside leg:
The inside leg measurement is taken from the crotch to the floor. Please note that the inside leg measurement of trousers is often provided in the product description.
