It’s hard to believe that my cookbook, “Pickles & Preserves: A Savor the South Cookbook” from UNC Press series, is finally out.
And that means, I have book events next month all over the Triangle and beyond. I would love to meet readers, sign cookbooks and chat with fellow canners and food lovers. I’ll be providing plenty of pickles and preserves to nosh on at these events. Here’s the calendar so far:Quail Ridge Books & Music The Country Bookshop Culinary Historians of the Piedmont
I’m also teaching a couple cooking classes: 2 p.m. May 17 at Whisk in Cary and 6 p.m. June 25 at Southern Season in Chapel Hill. I’m also travelling to Southern Season in Charleston to do two events on June 21: a book signing from 10 a.m.-noon and a cooking class at 1 p.m.
Other dates to keep in mind:
Several authors in the Savor the South series will be speaking at the North Carolina Literary Festival, April 3-6 at N.C. State University in Raleigh. I know I have been asked to moderate a panel at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 6 on the “The Future of Food Writing.”
Durham and Chapel Hill magazines are sponsoring a Taste the Event April 23-27, which includes a kickoff event from 5-7 p.m. April 23 at Top of the Hill distillery in Chapel Hill featuring myself and four other UNC Press cookbook authors. Tickets cost $51. Details and to purchase tickets, go to http://tastetheevent.com/home/event/taste-2014-opening-reception-topo-distillery/.
