When I think about tomorrow’s holiday, I think about burgers. Okay, fireworks THEN burgers, but still. And to me, ‘burger’ means one thing now: SKILLET. I am so excited that in one week Joshua Henderson’s beautiful book will be out in the real world. It’s been a long time coming, but I feel like summer can officially start, ideally with a kale caesar, half a nutella milkshake, and something that will involve bacon jam. I still feel so lucky to have been a part of the book & of the Skillet extended family. Editorial aesthetic had us select street-inspired grainy black and white photos to tell the book’s story, but I’ll still tempt you with these color shots of some of my favorite foods you can find at the diner.


Wishing you a happy 4th filled with equally delicious things. And if you’re feeling festive around the 22nd, we’ll be celebrating the book’s release with a pig roast and soul dance party.
