Melt Cookbook Trailer!

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

With the upcoming release of Melt, Steph and I have been hard at work setting up book tour dates, redesigning our site (with help from Ben, the best designer in the world, of course), and recording our cookbook trailer. Today, we're so excited to show you the finished trailer, something we've been working on for weeks now. It's done! We're almost as excited as when we finished the book.

With this short minute and a half trailer we wanted to communicate our reasons behind creating Melt: the Art of Macaroni and Cheese, what we love about cheese and cooking, and to give you an idea of what to expect when you pick up your copy of Melt. We put so much time and energy into creating what we think is a truly special cookbook, so we needed an equally special video to go along with it. Thank god we had a very talented videographer, Ryan Donahue, to make our vision a reality. Thanks, Ryan!

So without ado, we give you the Melt cookbook trailer! Please share using Vimeo's social media features so we can spread the love. Click the little heart-shaped "love" button, share it on Facebook, and pass it around on Twitter. We'd love you to help us get people jazzed about Melt and its cheesy goodness.

You'll have to pardon my inability to look straight into the camera, I imagined that most of this was going to be voiceover. It wasn't, so therefore I look like I might be suffering from a sudden embolism as I gaze off camera. On the plus side normally I sound so gay on video that one can only imagine a cock falling out of my mouth. This time I don't so yayness there.

Overall, though, not bad. Pretty darn awesome, actually. 

So now, I must ask something of you all. Give it a watch, share it on Facebook, pass it around. I ask you to help me get people jazzed about Melt and its cheesy goodness. Also, be sure to check out the newly designed official website for Melt: the Art of Macaroni and Cheese, located at There you'll find an event calendar, links to buy, and other delicious tips and recipes for cooking with cheese.

In other news, we've also got a handful of book events lined up for all around the country and we're adding more every week. So far we're appearing in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and the Bay Area. We're working on setting up a complete calendar that will automatically update when we add a new date, and a Google map of all the places we'll be. You should be seeing that announcement soon.

And don't forget: Melt is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online book retails. Order your copy now!


Garrett out.


  1. Trailer looks great guys! (Garret, I found your 'gazing off camera' minimal and endearing and Stephanie, love the hair!)

    Wishing you guys every success with the book... that little video has lot of seriously enticing food footage. Love that you are supporting artisan products too.

    Good luck,


  2. Yay! The trailer is great! I'm so excited for the book!

    Two good lookin' people makin' good lookin' food is always a win! :)

  3. I like the video. I'm still not convinced, though. I guess I'm just not a huge fan of mac and cheese, or the idea of using expensive cheese to make it. I'm intrigued by the fact that you've got some desserts in there, though!

  4. Nice! I wish you both the best with your book. It's lovely!

  5. Garrett, the trailer is tantalizing but no more so than the anticipated book release. Wishing you and Stephanie all the best!

  6. Little heart-shaped button clicked, Sir!. I guess you're too busy covering America with macaroni cheese (that's what we call it in Britainland) to be able to tell me whether Melt will be published in the UK?

    All the best.
