The fabulous chef and author Joyce Goldstein has a new book out, Inside the California Food Revolution: Thirty Years That Changed Our Culinary Consciousness. The book is all about the culinary landscape in California, starting in the 1970s, and includes interviews with chefs, writers, and purveyors. To celebrate the book, she’ll be at a bunch of events all over town; be sure to catch her in action!
First up, on Saturday September 21st from 3pm-5pm, you’ll find her at the ~PASTA SHOP~ in Berkeley. She’ll be reading from the book, signing it, and there will be the opportunity to sample some items not seen much before the 1980s, but commonly available now. The event is free, and the book will be available for purchase. 1786 4th St. at Delaware, Berkeley, 510-250-6004.
On Wednesday September 25th, she’ll be at ~OMNIVORE BOOKS~ from 6:30pm-7:30pm, reading from the book and signing. The event is free, and books will be available for purchase.
Then, on Wednesday October 16th, head down to the ~PURCELL-MURRAY~ showroom in Brisbane for a lunch and conversation with Jonathan Kauffman of Tasting Table SF.

Lunch costs $45 per person, and books will be available for purchase at the event as well. Tickets can be purchased by calling 415-656-8129.
