In Seattle? Come to a knife sharpening party for the paperback launch Sept. 25th or 26th

Normally, I try to avoid inviting dull party guests. But we’re having a party and your knives are invited, especially the dull ones.

The paperback of The Kitchen Counter Cooking School goes on sale Tuesday, September 25th. To mark this extraordinary occasion, I’ll be doing two events in greater Seattle. The first will be at the fabulous culinary book store, The Book Larder, on the day it goes on sale. It’s going to be a super fun event, with stations set up around the store for comparative tastings of everyday cooking staples, a sampling of recipes and some lovely wine. But, there’s more! Also on hand will be my pal Bill Magee, who will be bringing his mobile knife sharpening operation, Cutlery on Wheels. You’ll get a chance to try out a variety of knife styles and brands – and, if you bring your knives, he’ll be able to either sharpen on site or arrange to drop them off at your home or work. Everyone will get some fun swag, plus we’ll have some prizes, including a $20 gift certificate for knife sharpening. Cost is $20 and includes a signed copy of the paperback.

Can’t make that one? Fear not. The fun shifts to Third Place Books in Bothell on Wednesday, Sept. 26th. We’ll do the comparative tastings, I’ll talk about the project and Bill will be on hand with his truck for sharpening there, too. That event is free. RSVP ahead of time for a special gift.

Cutlery on Wheels charges about five or six bucks a knife; make sure you protect the blade for travel for reasons that should be obvious.

  1. I heard a rumor you might be talked into coming to San Diego. If so, I would love to host an event for you at our house.

      That would be great! Let’s talk details. I am doing a couple events there and setting up a book store event in La Jolla but I’d love to do one with you!
