Do you have a serious Philz Coffee addiction, or just love damn good food? Well, a Philz Coffee-inspired cookbook is happening. Yes, cooking with Philz! It’s also the perfect gift for any foodie or coffee lover.

This is a Kickstarter project started by a couple of Philz fans that would love your support. Made with Coffee, created by Jerry James Stone and K.C. Cornwell, explores all that is delicious when cooking with coffee.

Years in the making, you’ll find tasty recipes such as Pastry-Wrapped Poached Pears with Coffee Caramel, Cocoa Roasted Beets, and Coffee & Pomegranate Lamb Chops. Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or not, there is something for everyone in this cookbook.

Jerry lived in San Francisco up until a few years ago and is known for his unique spin on vegan and vegetarian cuisine. But this book is about coffee, and not vegetarianism, which is why it has contributors from Whole Foods Market and even Food Network.

If you are looking to try coffee on a whole new level, this is your next cookbook! The campaign ends December 19th.

Look forward to seeing you in the kitchens soon.

Restaurateurs, you’ve gone to a lot of trouble and expense to source the highest-quality ingredients from carefully chosen purveyors to create the best meals for your guests. The next logical step is to replace the paraffin votives and disposable oil lanterns on your tables with clean-burning, nontoxic GoodLight Natural Candles so that your guests aren’t inhaling petroleum fumes while they dine.

GoodLight offers a full line of unscented palm wax votives, tea lights, pillars, tapers, and birthday candles for restaurants at incredibly affordable pricing. Call 1-800-519-2353 for special restaurant pricing and join New York’s Del Posto and California restaurants such as Magnolia, Smokestack, Loma Brewing, and Suppenküche in making the switch to GoodLight…because you breathe what you burn.

Also, if you are working toward Green Restaurant Association certification, you’ll earn 3 points by replacing your paraffin candles with GoodLight. Learn more here.

Join us for A Literary Feast.

Thirty of the world’s best-selling cookbook authors gather in one place to sip, sample sup, schmooze, and sign.

San Francisco boasts more award-winning cookbook authors than any other world-class city, and most of them happen to be women. And most of them happen to be members of the venerable international culinary organization Les Dames d’Escoffier.

On Sunday November 13th from 3pm to 6pm in the Grand Hall at San Francisco’s Ferry Building, many of the world’s best-known cookbook authors will gather to share insight, inscribe cookbooks, and offer tastes of their favorite recipes. Rarely do so many culinary leading lights—Teri Sandison, Paula Wolfert, Dorie Greenspan, Joyce Goldstein, Carol Field, Diana Kennedy, Leslie Sbrocco, Amy Guittard, and Georgeanne Brennan, among many others—gather in one place to offer you tastes from their cookbooks and pour you a glass of wine.

Funds raised through the sale of $10 advance tickets ($12 at the door) will benefit the Culinary Scholarship Fund of Les Dames d’Escoffier San Francisco. For more than 30 years, the organization has supported aspiring women chefs, authors, scholars, and hospitality professionals.

Advance tickets are available online here.
