Let There Be (Flash)Light

Areaware

Bright idea: Jonas Damon’s beechwood flashlight.

SWITCH: We know you’re very attached to that yellow-and-black plastic monstrosity from Home Depot, but this beechwood flashlight designed by Jonas Damon for Areaware is just as powerful, way more eco-friendly, and powers with an energy-efficient LED bulb. Bonus: Its minimalist aesthetic means you can display it as an objet, not bury it in the depths of your kitchen drawer (which sucks in a blackout). Available at Bobby Berk Home, 59 Crosby Street near Spring Street ; 646-233-3438.

STANK ON IT: Liz Thorpe, one of the head honchos at Murray’s Cheese, has eaten her way across America, one cheese at a time. She profiles 80 of the farms and artisans who’ve changed the face of domestic fromage in “Cheese Chronicles: A Journey Through the Making and Selling of Cheese in America, from Field to Farm,” which she’ll present and sign tonight at Barnes & Noble in Park Slope, 7:30PM.

PLUG-N-PLAY: Even if your kitchen is small (like ours) and you use your oven mostly as storage (no comment), there will come a day when you need to chop, mince, or shred something. Be prepared with one of these supercute (but so powerful) 3-cup mini-food processors made by Cuisinart exclusively for Sur La Table. $39, and the rainbow colors rock. Sur La Table, 75 Spring Street near Crosby Street, 212-966-3375.
