The rise and rise of knitting as a cool pastime has led to circles and clubs springing up everywhere from New York to Notting Hill and alternative craft-fairs are fast becoming a weekend institution as ever more people are reclaiming these age old hobbies and asserting their individuality through making stuff. "Making Stuff" is an eclectic craft book for the new millennium. It is a testament to a trend that is only going to get bigger. Whether you are a seasoned crafter looking for new ideas or a novice with a penchant for gaffer tape, this book is for you. Utilising both traditional craft materials and thrifty finds, this book gathers together over 50 projects from established members of the craft scene that will undoubtedly inspire you to get your craft on. "Making Stuff" simultaneously rejects and embraces traditionally old-fashioned activities like knitting, embroidery, crochet and felting. Whilst the skills remain the same, the results have a modern edge: an eclectic mix of the useful, the hip, the beautiful and the downright weird. A section at the beginning lays out the basic skills you need to make something out of nothing: knitting, sewing, crochet, felting and applique. Over 50 ideas are then laid out with clear illustrations guiding you every step of the way. Projects include: how to knit an i-Pod cover; fashion a purse from your old school-ties; stitch one piece of fabric into a stylish smock-dress; turn an old jumper into a cuddly toy; make a notebook out of record covers; fold beautiful origami fairy-lights; and, knit unwanted t-shirts into a bathmat or weave a placemat. There are also a plethora of ingenious ways to customise your clothes, make your own jewellery, decorate your home, recycle your old possessions and fashion baby clothes and toys for the children in your life.
Although not as extensive as 1997's best-of compilation (that set has 17 tracks as opposed to this set's 12), 2008's THE BEST OF ZIGGY MARLEY AND THE MELODY MAKERS is still a fine round-up of the outfit's sunny reggae-pop. Along with the group's highest charting single, "Tomorrow People," from 1988's CONSCIOUS PARTY, THE BEST OF includes "Met Her On a Rainy Day," "Freedom Road," and "Tumblin' Down." Although Ziggy Marley's music isn't as roots-conscious as his father's, the messages of political consciousness, freedom, unity, and positive energy shine through on each of these tracks.
"Ziggy rolls up his sleeves to produce Vegetarian Hash, dumplings, Jerk Chicken, Tofu in Coconut Curry, Fish Soup, Caribbean Salsa, Hempseed Pesto, Date and Kale Smoothie, Frittata, Mancakes, Mamá Carmelita’s flan and even offers the best recipe for baking Stout Gingerbread. Simply explained, gluten-free, organic fruits and vegetables combine to make healthy, vegetarian, vegan and non-vegetarian meals." --The New York Beacon
"The book features updated versions of favorite Jamaican and Rastafarian-inspired meals from those closest to him. Along with Marley’s own creations, like the sublime Coconut Dream Fish and aforementioned Mancakes, recipes include his wife Orly’s morning oatmeal, his sister Karen’s lentil soup, recipes from his daughter Judah and mother-in-law, fresh juices like those his father enjoyed and contributions from several renowned chefs." --Parade
"Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook is a medley of lively recipes like Roasted Yam Tart and Coconut Dream Fish." --Family Circle
"Filled with enticing photos, the book includes the recipes of Marley and those close to him, including sister Karen and daughter Judah. It’s a celebration of food and family. Containing meat and fish dishes, as well as vegan and vegetarian creations, it draws not only from the Jamaican and Rastafarian cultures that nurtured Marley, but also his wife Orly’s Israeli-Iranian roots." --The Mercury News
"The book is inspired by Jamaican meals Ziggy enjoyed while growing up--but with an up-dated healthy spin. It features contributions by wife Orly, sister Karen and daughter Judah. --The Chronicle Journal
"Marley delivers a book full of flavors that appeal to the taste buds but also to clean eating . . . There is truly something here for every adventurous and organic-conscious foodie from the Marley family kitchen." --Insights Magazine
“This is no typical island cookbook; rather, it’s an innovative collection of healthful recipes from his family’s Rastafarian and Jamaican roots, combined with dishes from his wife’s Persian/Israeli background.” --Palo Alto Daily News
“The cookbook predominately features several recipes that are vegan and vegetarian, but also includes meat and fish recipes, some of which are fusions of Jamaican cuisine, and his wife’s Israeli and Iranian background — food Marley promises that anyone can enjoy even if they are not Jamaican.” --Caribbean Life
As the oldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy was raised with both traditional Jamaican food and the more natural and healthy "ital" food of the family's Rastafari culture. The fifty-four recipes included in the book, inspired by Ziggy's youth and accompanied by beautiful photos, are contributed by Ziggy, his wife Orly, his sister Karen, as well as renowned chefs Bruce Sherman (Coconut Carrot Curry), Ben Ford (Escabeche, Escovitch), and Leonie McDonald (Caribbean Salsa). Many of the recipes are vegetarian, vegan, and/or gluten-free.
From the introduction by Ziggy Marley:
"I first started dabbling in the kitchen as a teenager. I enjoyed making cornmeal porridge, and it helped me to begin appreciating the idea of nourishment, the idea that food can make your body feel better. I would make Irish moss and some of my dad's juices...Our Rasta culture was different than regular Jamaican culture. We used to have both sides then, because my auntie would cook the more traditional Jamaican food. On the other side, our Rasta culture drew us to a different way of eating. My father would always have a lot of juices and greens and nuts. We were introduced to ital food--fresh, organic, and nutritious, less salt."
No one has written poetry about the Egyptian city of Alexandria since Constantine Cavafy, way back in the first three decades of the C20th. Alex, as locals fondly call their coastal paradise, is anything but Cairo's poor cousin - it is decadent, friendly, cosmopolitan and, though its ancient past is basically under the Mediterranean, oozes history. I lived and worked in the city for four years - not as an ex-pat hidden away from the real Egypt, but as a local who travelled on the tram, shopped in the street market at Cleopatra and argued with plumbers (in my basic, quaint Arabic) over their inflated call-out charges The poems, in the volume, are universal - they talk about people, feelings, celebrations, hopes and fears. You, the reader, need not have any knowledge of Egypt or Arabic culture to appreciate them. I hope you enjoy my words.
