Anthony Bourdain, Vegetarian Converter

While in SF, I also had the pleasure of participating in a LitQuake event, titled Read Good Food: how cookbooks inspire change. There, I read from Kitchen Confidential and described how Anthony Bourdain unwittingly convinced me to end my 9-year stint of vegetarianism. Although I was nervous, I actually really enjoyed telling my story, and I'm not too proud to say it was fun being the center of attention! So there.

Butter Date write about it, with photos!

Fabulous press for Eat Good Food!

I'm back from my trip to San Francisco, where I celebrated the release of my first cookbook, Eat Good Food, which I co-wrote with Sam Mogannam, owner of Bi-Rite Market.

I feel so lucky to have gotten such positive feedback about the book, not just from friends and colleagues but also from folks outside of the Bi-Rite family. Here are just a few:

Dana Velden's lovely write-up on The Kitchn, with recipe for Mom's Pear Skillet Cake (it is so so so good...also, that's actually Sam's mom in the photo!)

video review (who knew those existed?) on The Taste Spot

As well as love on Fete a FeteTriple Pundit, and Progressive Grocer.
