Thanks to everyone who turned up for my reading at Omnivore Books last week (and sorry if they were out of books by the time you got there!). No fear, there are more fun book launch events coming up. Here’s what is going on over the next two weeks:

There is one more seat left for tomorrow’s (Wednesday March 31st) Cooks With Books Lunch at Perbacco lunch (12pm, $100 includes book, tax, tip).

If you live in the 650, I will be at Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park this Thursday April 1st at 7:30pm for a reading and signing. 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park.

And get ready, because this Saturday April 3rd, I will be doing a chat and tasting with Jake Godby of Humphry Slocombe. He will be bringing mini duck fat pecan pies and of course ICE CREAM! We’ll chat about flavor, and I’ll be selling and signing books for $17.50. 2pm, free. Bloomingdale’s, 845 Market St. at 7th St., San Francisco.

I’m going to be making a very rare Monday night appearance on Monday April 5th at Wines of Portugal—A World of Difference Tour 2010 (I am looking forward to being away from my desk, let me tell you). The first 150 ticket buyers get a free copy of my book (there are less than 50 left)! I will also be signing and selling additional books ($17.50) at this fabulous tasting event in case you don’t score one of the free copies. 5pm-7pm. $35 ($50 door). Tickets/event details. Westin St Francis, 335 Powell St., 32nd Floor, San Francisco.

Next Thursday April 8th, I will be hosting a drop-in 18 Reasons Event (with bubbly and bites from La Cocina producer Onigilly). I’ll be reading from my book, and I also prepared a special handout, “18 Picks from the tablehopper on 18 People and Places and Things That Bring 18 Reasons’ Values to Life.” Event details. It’s also opening night of the Dolores Park Movie Night, so maybe swing by on your way to the park? 7pm-9pm. $5 members, $10 general. 593 Guerrero St. at 18th St., San Francisco.

East Bay folks, I will be hosting a meet and greet at The Pasta Shop inside Rockridge Market Hall on Saturday April 10th at 12pm. We’ll be grazing on a variety of my favorite pantry items, from honey and olive oil to cheese and olives (we’re calling it a pop-up party)! Free (except for my book, which will be for sale at the event). 5655 College Ave., Oakland.
