Each week we highlight five things we thought were interesting, notable, or culturally significant. This week we are showcasing stories about our good friend Suzanne Vizethann and her cookbook, “Buttermilk Kitchen,” the unhappy breakup or Mark Zuckerberg Kevin Systrom, what it takes to make shoes with Seth Fowler, how to get free classes from the MoMA, and if the world was ending, which coffee cup we want most.
These “Friday Top Five’s” updates are available each week on DaileyBlend.com or by Subscribing to the Dailey Blend Newsletter.
Story-1:: Welcome to Buttermilk Kitchen a cookbook by Suzanne Vizethann featuring the photos Angie Mosier
Overview: For years, there has been a lot of interest in how we do things at Buttermilk Kitchen. Customers inquire about our recipes, want to buy our homemade jams, or learn how to make our biscuits. Ultimately, people want to recreate the dishes they wait in long lines for week after week. My hope is to empower readers to make delicious, company-worthy food in their own homes, and, of course, to have fun while doing it. I want to share the lessons I have learned along the course of my exhilarating culinary journey. My greatest honor as a chef is to share the magic of Buttermilk Kitchen with homes around the world. From our kitchen to yours!
Why It Matters: First and foremost, I am friends with Suzanne and who doesn’t love to see their friends do some amazing things and launch a cook book! Second of all, I have been to all of Suzanne’s past restaurants, pop-up dinners, and current Buttermilk Kitchen location located in Rosewell GA (Atlanta). The food is damn good, the location is perfect, and of course, the biscuits are out of this world. Do yourself a favor, pick up the cookbook, book a plane ticket to Atlanta (when this stuff is over), and go check it out for yourself.
Story-2:: Facebook, the big sister that wants to dress you up for the party but does not want you to be prettier than she is
Overview: Over the past decade, Instagram has become an engine of commerce and cultural influence with few peers—aside from its parent company, Facebook Inc. Reporter Sarah Frier’s inside look at Instagram, based on interviews with hundreds of the companies’ leaders, current and former employees, competitors, and stars, traces the relationship, or should I say lack there of between Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook and Kevin Systrom former CEO of Instagram apart.
Why It Matters: I just found it interesting that Facebook is essentially ripping off the playbook from Microsoft. If you dget too big and can’t innovate, go buy the next hot tech/idea. This was the case with Instagram and Facebook. Have a read through the article and make all judgments yourself.
Story-3:: Can We MAKE A SHOE in 48 Hours?! it done with his busy schedule
Overview: Seth Fowler teamed up with We Are Underdogs, a Portuguese Shoe company to see if he could make a real shoo-in just 48 hours! He flew to Portugal to meet up with Paulo, a shoemaker with decades of experience. Together they met with multiple shoe factories and made the first sample of a shoo-in just 48 hours! Check out the whole video to find out how we made our shoe!
Why It Matters: I am a massive shoe fan, I also think Seth does a really fine job reviewing them and based on his videos I have bought or held off on buying shoes. I also view his show as sort of that fun thing I watch at the end of a long day.
Story-4:: MoMA Launches Free Online Courses on Art, Fashion & More
Overview: The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) is currently offering free online courses on art, photography, and fashion. And as we remain in isolation for the foreseeable future due to the global coronavirus outbreak, there is no better time to level up your IQ.
Why It Matters: Based on the fact that no one can go to a museum, it feels only right that if you had the tech, why not provide free classes. Based on that logic, it makes total sense that the MoMA would the ones able to do just that. Enjoy free learning!

Story-5:: The Mug to End All Mug
Overview: The Studio Mug is one of three cups available from our original Coupe line, designed in the 1940s by Edith Heath. Its unique low handle is as ergonomic as it is iconic. The perfect addition to any coffee (or tea) drinker’s morning routine. Expect lovely variation in our Moonstone, Re…
Why It Matters: So, I have not actually seen, held, or used this mug. I am purely basing the fact that I like the way it looks, and that Matt Hranek (Instagram & Web) and hit lovely wife Yolanda (Instagram & Web) are posting these all over their Instagram and I feel like I need one in my life. The one pictured above just happens to be my favorite in case anyone is buying……..
