If you’re looking for gift ideas for someone on your list (or, hello, yourself), cookbooks are a great way to go. Especially signed, beautifully photographed, locally written ones. On Saturday December 13th from 3pm-4pm, catch Nicolaus Balla and Cortney Burns of Bar Tartine at ~OMNIVORE BOOKS~. They’ll be discussing their new cookbook, Bar Tartine: Techniques & Recipes, and signing copies. The event is free, and books will be available for purchase. For a review of this book and many others, check out our holiday cookbook review from last week. Omnivore is also hosting a number of other special book events next week, if you can’t make this one. Check their calendar here for details.
