Chef Daniel Boulud has a new cookbook, Daniel: My French Cuisine, and will be at the JCCSF talking about it on Sunday October 27th at 7pm. He’ll be joined by Chris Ying, the editor-in-chief of Lucky Peach. Tickets are $25 general admission, or $35 for premium seating. JCCSF members get 10 percent off the ticket price.

The JCCSF will also be hosting chefs David Kinch and Daniel Patterson in Conversation on Wednesday October 30th at 7pm. Both authors have recently released books, Kinch’s Manresa: An Edible Reflection and Patterson’s Coi: Stories and Recipes, and this should be a pretty cool opportunity to hear these two share their distinctly Bay Area food ethos. Tickets are $25 general admission, or $35 for premium seating. JCCSF members get 10 percent off the ticket price. 3200 California St. at Presidio, 415-292-1200.

Daniel Patterson will also be appearing all around town solo, starting on Monday November 18th with a dinner at ~COI~ in conjunction with Book Passage’s Cook with Books Series. He’ll be preparing recipes from the book, and discussing his approach to cooking, starting at 4:30pm. Tickets are $115 per person or $200 for a pair, including a copy of the book.

On Thursday December 5th, catch him at the Williams-Sonoma Union Square at 6pm, where he’ll be doing a book signing. The event is completely free and copies of the book will be available for purchase. 340 Post St. at Stockton, 415-362-9450.

Noma chef René Redzepi will be in town promoting his new three-part book, A Work in Progress: Journals, Recipes, and Snapshots. Don’t miss his talk at the Castro Theatre in conjunction with ~OMNIVORE BOOKS~ on Tuesday November 19th. Introducing him will be Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, who also wrote the introduction to the book.
