Alex Etling  Co-Founder & Managing Director of Cave Theatre, professional actor, lifelong vegan, and Photographer of The Blossom Cookbook, published by Avery!

So I stopped by a @barnesandnoble yesterday, and guess what was on their "New & Featured" Cookbooks display? It's a cool experience getting to see your work appearing in bookstores all over the country. Check out The Blossom Cookbook next time you're near a bookstore! (And send me a picture!)

So, I don't usually post about my non theatre-related projects, but this was kind of a big one. I started working on The Blossom Cookbook about two and a half years ago. We were unbelievably lucky to find a publishing partner in no less than Penguin Random House, one of the largest publishers in the world. Over the next two years, we meticulously planned, designed recipes, tested recipes (and tested, and re-tested recipes), wrote the accompanying headers and story, and I photographed every single dish. It's been exhausting and stressful, but also incredibly gratifying to see my photos and work begin to coalesce into a physical book.
I'm very proud of the end result (as well as the fact that it's an entirely vegan cookbook), and as of TODAY, April 25th, 2017, it will FINALLY be released to the public, available to be ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or at a bookstore near you! (Seriously, I'd love to see where you find our book! Send me a photo if you see it out and about!)
I'm credited as both the photographer and an author, and I'd love for you to see what we've created!
I'm so grateful to our literary team at Avery and Penguin Random House, our literary agent, and my co-authors for the opportunity. Special thanks to Kiley Caughey for her support (and for putting up with hearing about this for two years), to James Masciovecchio, Daniella E. Benavides, and Christie Carter for testing a few recipes, and to Lauren Morrison Yanchuk and Timothy Pakron for allowing me to bounce some ideas around!

Happy Easter, from people who like their dog too much…

So last night started off pretty unbelievably when an @Uber showed up to hand us @HamiltonMusical tickets from @AmericanExpress, but somehow got even better from there. After a phenomenal show, we got on the list for the Hamilton afterparty across the street at the Paramount Hotel!

We got to party with the cast, with Icona Pop playing live, complete with aerialists overhead. Got to watch Burr dance with Angelica, and had a cool chat with Bryan Terrell Clark, who plays Washington. Such a surreal night, feeling very grateful. #OnlyInNYC.

Thanks, #AmexPlatinum & #HamiltonMusical!

Thanks again, @AmericanExpress & @Uber for the awesome @HamiltonMusical tickets!


So @americanexpress #AmexPlatinum and @Uber had a special promotion today and were giving away tickets to @HamiltonMusical. There were four sets available in all of NYC, and…well, WE WON.
We're gonna be in the room where it…yeah, you get it.
We're so excited! Thanks so much @AmericanExpress and @Uber and @HamiltonMusical!

Clearly, no amount of caution could possibly be sufficient to defend yourself against the clear and present danger of this stationary crowbar that was left on my floor by construction workers.

In the room where it happens…

Got a pretty nice envelope in the mail today…@HamiltonMusical tickets! Orchestra, third row from the stage! Can't wait.

About to head to the gym for my 31st workout in the last 31 days - every day since I decided to get back in shape on the oh-so-original self-improvement date of January 1st!

Not bragging, just trying to keep myself accountable! (Although I am a bit proud that I was able to fit a workout into my schedule every day.) #CommitToSomething #Equinox @equinox

"Have you been to Alex's new place?" "No." "He's got peanuts…on tap." "Really? On TAP?" "ON TAP, Janine." "Wow. I knew he was doing well these days, but I just…I had no idea." …is what they'll say.
