New York Event

So here’s a dilemma for everyone, omnivore or otherwise. How do you motivate people off the couch and into the kitchen… or even motivate yourself?

As part of my New York event to launch The Kitchen Counter Cooking SchoolI’ve invited culinary authors Pam Anderson and Lauren Shockey to shine a light on the matter as we discuss the project at the heart of the new book and a more general conversation about how all of us can be inspired and empower those of us around us to cook more nourishing meals to eat better and perhaps spend less. Pam Anderson is a columnist for USA Weekend, contributing editor to Fine Cooking and the author of the classic How to Cook Without a Book and award-winning Perfect Recipe series of best-selling cookbooks. She blogs with her two daughters atThreeManyCooks. Lauren Shockey is a food journalist with the Village Voice and author of the recently published memoir Four Kitchens about her experiences cooking in New York, Vietnam, Israel and Paris — a journey that led her to appreciate how much she valued cooking in her own kitchen.

The evening’s panel will be introduced by Richard Grausman, one of America’s most respected culinary educators and the founder of the national Careers through the Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP).

So come have some wine and food inspired by the new book and join in an interesting night of discussion, plus pick up some exclusive recipes and perhaps even win one of several excellent door prizes — including a Henckels chef’s knife! Books, including my brand new one, will be for sale and all of us will be pleased to sign, plus answer vexing cooking problems.

Please note: This it the only event that I’m planning in the greater New York area for this book tour.
