There are all kinds of author events coming up in the Bay Area. And you should come, because authors are cool. Next Tuesday June 28th, Joyce Goldstein will be at COOKS’ BOOK CLUB OF FOURTH STREET (a collaboration with Books Inc.). She will discuss her numerous (fabulous) books, and will then guide the audience through a tasting of her favorite pantry items: olive oil, honey, cheese, and more at The Pasta Shop and at Café Rouge, which will offer Mediterranean menu items based on Joyce’s recipes. No charge except for purchases. 6pm-8pm. Upcoming authors include Marissa Guggiana, author of PRIMAL CUTS: Cooking with America’s Best Butchers on Tuesday July 26th; and on Tuesday August 23rd is Romney Steele, with her new book, Plum Gorgeous: Recipes and Memories from the Orchard. 1760 4th St. at Delaware, Berkeley.
At ~OMNIVORE BOOKS~ in San Francisco, mark your calendar on July 19th to listen to the ever-engaging Cecilia Chiang in conversation with co-author Lisa Weiss, who will be discussing The Seventh Daughter: My Culinary Journey from Beijing to San Francisco; and on Thursday July 21st is Hank Shaw, with Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. There are many more upcoming events (including a November event with Jacques Pépin!), check it all out on Omnivore’s events page.
One of my favorite Joyce Goldstein books.
