The Missing Links: It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I'm Making Money)

The (End of the) World Economy Is Booming
The world will end sometime. So you might as well make some money off of the apocalypse while you can. And if you do, make sure you spend it soon, because when the end comes around I don’t think all that cash will do you much good.

We all know that person who purports themself to be a wine expert. They know all about vintage and regions and varieties and food pairing and tannins. Surely they couldn’t be suckered into paying a higher price for a wine just because it’s named something fancy and ornate and French, right?

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
