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.
