On today's THE FOOD SEEN, we're graced with Paul Lowe, the styling genius behind Sweet Paul magazine, who brings his Nordic nuances to the table. In his latest issue, Winter 2011, he lives true by his subtitle, "chasing the sweet things in life". Making old traditions anew, Paul teaches us how to make our own wrapping paper, and few interesting iterations of the standard wreath. Oh, and there's cooking too, from hearty greens to larger than life cookies. Listen in to learn the luscious tricks of the trade. This episode was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
