Big Sur Magic

©Sara Remington, View from Nepenthe


As yet another way to avoid the ever growing stack of papers on my desk, thought instead to point you to a complimentary article about my book and our family in the spring issue of Carmel Magazine, with fabulous visuals to boot. You can link to “Big Sur Magic” here, also found on my press pages in the right column. Writer Michael Chatfield’s love of the region and esteem for Nepenthe’s magical setting lures even this reluctant homegirl back into the “heart and soul” of a place that I am so privileged to enjoy.

I’ve been plenty blessed with fabulous press over the past few months, not least the above mention, along with many excellent blog reviews, as well–see 5-second rule’s take on my grandmother’s minestrone soup, or fall in love with Lori Times Five and her love letter to Nepenthe, as I did, then go ahead and follow her, and be soothed by her words. In fact, if you want a good laugh and enjoy food, follow Cheryl too. And if you missed the Q & A by Sarah Henry, who blogs at Lettuce Eat Kale, you can find it here.

On other news, my post on Seville orange marmalade was picked up by Catavino, a website focused on the food and specifically wine of Portugal and Spain. Browsing through their site made me want to hop on the next plane to that very beautiful and lyrical part of the world, but since I can’t, just yet…

I continue to update my Events page, so please take a look.

Sacramento and Co (News 10) is interviewing me on March 10th, and I’ll be having a book signing that night at the Avid Reader, downtown.

Next month, I go south again for a reading/event at Latitudes 33 in Laguna Beach, the small town where my grandparents first started out–marrying on the fly at the nearby mission, and later shacking up in a little cottage by the sea, where they also had their first entree into the film industry.

As it turned out, Paramount studios constructed a Neapolitan fishing village just across from their little cottage where they filmed Give us this Night (1936) starring Jan Kiepura and Gladys Swarthout in what my grandparents described as the “operatic opus to end all operatic opuses.”  They had minor rolls as fisherman in the crowd.


Even more exciting, I just found out that my book is a finalist for best book of the year (for food and wine writing) with the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association (NCIBA). Winners will be announced in early April.

Additionally, the venerable Kepler’s in Menlo Park will post an interview with me and book trailer on their website, any day now. It will include some photos and images not seen in my book.

As always, you can purchases signed copies of my book at the Phoenix Shop–and they’ll pop in the mail to you. I’m happy to personalize them, so be sure to write that in the note section of your order.

If you happen to be visiting Carmel this weekend stop by Partington Ridge Co in the Crossroads (Susan Carvey, the owner, used to live in Big Sur and has her own great stories to tell), where you will find my book among many other great treasures, or at the always lovely Carmel Bay Co. downtown.

Don’t be shy in making a comment, or following up with your own Nepenthe story.

    I made my first trip to Nepenthe earlier this month and it was magical! I bought the book at the Phoenix Shop and love it. Too bad I live in NYS but I will be back!

    Obviously Nepenthe was really awesome back in the day, but it’s always been very magical to me. I’ve been going there whenever possible for 30 years (I’m 35 now) and it is hands down my most favorite place in the whole world. I always leave feeling refreshed and peaceful even if there’s a 2 hour wait for lunch. If that’s not magical, I want to know what is!

  3. Nani, and the beat goes on…the heartbeat of your beautiful book is resounding through cyber space and beyond.
    You have created a web by weaving magical stories of people and times. It will only continue to grow.
    Love you, Mary
