Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Breakfast Meeting–Maialino

on December 5, 2013

Jacqui Small, a book packager and publisher with the most exquisite taste in home design books and cookbooks, also has an eye for warm, hospitable, satisfying-in-every-way breakfast spots. I was lucky to be invited to meet with her this morning at Maialino.

I was grumpy earlier, not looking forward to starting the workday, but one hour with this delightful Englishwoman, a couple of cups of pressed Colombian coffee, and a serving of Maialino’s soft, juicy scrambled eggs changed my whole attitude. We commiserated on publishing’s sorry state of affairs while she walked me through her next few books.  They’re so pretty to look at, so contemporary, and so useful for creating a life of relaxed grace, energetic creativity, and fun.

This is one of her previous books, a multiple award winner–mmmmmm!

Jacqui is an inspiration: if she thinks a book’s subject is valuable, she supports the author with all her experience, creative talents, and marketing savvy. Now that’s a lesson for life…talk about valuable!
