San Francisco Book Signing & Events

I’m currently in San Francisco (yay!) and this afternoon, I’ll be cooking live on View From the Bay which is also streamed live online. It’s on at 3-4pm and I think the cooking segment is on towards the end of the hour.



Then tonight I’ll be at Omnivore Books from 6pm-7pm with a quick talk, booksigning and jackpot giveaway from my tour sponsors, Scanpan, Chefs Catalog, Earthy and MacSpeech.


Oh, wait til you see the goodie bags…I think I have enough for each event that I’m doing here in SF.

Elise of Simply Recipes is spending the next 2 nights with me. Where is she gonna sleep?


Tomorrow (Saturday) I’ll be spending some time with the good people over at Foodbuzz and will be at the Metreon for book signing 2pm to 3:30pm.

Saturday night is a cooking class at Sur La Table in Union Square 6:30pm. We’ll be making this:




I Love L.A.

I’ve just come back from Los Angeles where the highlight of my trip was walking into a Barnes & Noble hand-in-hand with my Mom and showing her the Steamy Kitchen Cookbook on the shelf. I had the camera all ready to capture the moment, gave it to Dad and the moment he was JUST about to depress the trigger finger, the manager walked by and said no-no to cameras in the store. Party pooper.

I also taught at Sur La Table in Los Angeles…my first class at my favorite splurge store. Not knowing what to expect, I arrived 2 hours prior to start of class ready to start prepping and working to get the class ready. When I arrived in the LA store, there was a kitchen staff of 4 already at work, prepping everything!

I wanna bring them home!


Wonderful class, fantastic food and lots of laughs.


What an amazing smile…


Got to hang with fun people like Jenny Kayano and Rachael of La Fuji Mama



Then there was this party that my very very favorite people in the world threw for me….but that’s for another post….
