Mark Ruffalo, Marcus Samuelsson, and Tilda Swinton have each chosen a favorite book, and paired it with a splendiferous tea
“You can never get a book long enough or a cup of tea large enough to suit me.” – C.S. Lewis.
Is there a better reward after a long year than to curl up in the dark days of winter with a great read and a cup of tea? If there is, we don’t know of it. At One Grand Books we’ve been asking celebrity bibliophiles to recommend ten favorite reads since 2015, and our archives keeps on growing: there’s over 150 curators to choose from on our sister site, One Grand Books. For the 2021 holiday season, we worked with three of our curators to pick one book from their lists of favorites, and then paired that book with a favorite tea, working with our fabulous tea purveyors, 2 Queens, in Narrowsburg. Each book is wrapped in our signature paper, and presented with the tea and dedicated bookmark in a custom-designed book tote.

I like how Hilton Als deals with issues of gender in this book. It made me pause and think numerous times while I was reading. I am constantly thinking about these themes especially in the culinary world where women are really becoming more and more empowered and important to the industry.Marcus Samuelsson
