But we’ve been noticing that the two have been edging closer together.
First, there are a number of restauranteurs (many male and cute) dating fashion girls (see: Dree Hemingway Phil Winser of the Fat Radish.) And then there are the adjectives: slow movement, local, organic, inspired, Brooklyn. Are we talking about fashion or food? Sometimes it’s hard to tell, with the descriptors for a rave review in the New York Times Dining section sounding a lot like those in the Style section. Finally–pomegranate, chocolate, almond coconut: flavor profiles for beauty product flavors or genuine foods? Could be either. And, we hate to bring up ancient history, but food-related digs (hot dogs and three-day-old hamburgers) are the new insults of the fashion industry. (And don’t forget our fashion cooking series Haute Cuisine!)
With that in mind, we’ve come up with fashion and food gift pairings–because you’ve got to feed more than your soul sometimes, right? Click through for everything from the spiciest hot sauce to countless cookies and their natural food and beauty pairings.
