I realize it’s been more than a week since I last posted. But I promise you I have not been idle. I’ve been doing lots of writing and cooking—just not for my own blog. And the book promotion continues, too. On Saturday I’ll be signing books at the one and only Omnivore Books, in San Francisco. This will be my first time at Omnivore and as you might imagine I am champing at the bit. I’m sure there is a book or two (or three) with my name on it. Wonder if they ship?

On Monday, August 1, I’ll be speaking to students at the California Culinary Academy. I still haven’t decided whether I’m going to tell them my dirty little culinary secret.

Oh, come on. You don’t really want to know, do you?

Perhaps another day.

I had a pre-departure post all planned, but somehow the thing just wouldn’t write itself. And now it’s time to pack. So I guess it will have to become a post-departure post. Or something like that. I don’t want to leave you empty-handed so I’m sharing links to some of my recent essays, as well as recipes (including the Mafalde with Roasted Tomatoes, Robiola, and Crushed Fennel Seeds which you see in the above photo) that have appeared elsewhere. Happy reading and Buon Appetito. 4 Things We Didn’t Know About Pasta

    Sob. You are going to CA but not CO. We do have bookstores here you know; you can tie your horse up right outside too. πŸ™‚

      Barb, I hope to make it to CO one day. Have never been but have always wanted to go. p.s. I can’t even remember the last time I was on a horse…

      Liz, you were right. I DID love Omnivore Books. That store is a gem and Celia the owner is wonderful. What a thoughtful collection of books. And yes, hope to get to southern California next time.

    Oh Domenica, I sure wish I had seen this post just a few days earlier. I would have popped into Omnivore books to see you. Next time.

      Kathy, I wish you had seen it, too. I had forgotten that you are in San Francisco. Next time for sure.

    I am making that raviolo! Your meal at that place sounded like the stuff dreams are made of.

    • Domenica August 1, 2011 at 10:26 am #

      Janie, go for it. It is a wonderful recipe, and much easier to execute than you might imagine. Enjoy, and please let me know how it turns out.
