Well folks, it’s been a whirlwind of a week with lots of great press surrounding my book followed by a sold out event in Carmel and around town, not withstanding that my book won Best Regional Cookbook for 2009 by Epicurious.
I have a stellar line up this week and hoping you will join me somewhere along the way for what is turning out to be a thrilling ride.
But first, if you didn’t see the SF Chronicle DATEBOOK piece, check it out here.
Also of note, Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks fame gave my book a very nice review and included an adapted recipe for my Orange and Oat Scones using whole-wheat pastry flour.
Bay area journalist Sarah Henry posted an informative Q and A on Berkeleyside, a new website with a notable roster of contributors, and has a give away on her blog.
And here’s a link to more photos from my event at Mrs. Dalloway’s on College Ave., again by friend and multi-talented photographer, Doug McKechnie.
