Upcoming events

I'm bi-coastal next month. These are the only events that I'm doing until late April. I've got a book to write, after all...

Future of Food Writing
First, if you have any interest in food writing whatsoever, you should seriously consider attending the Future of Food Writing conference Feb. 12-15 in New York City. The lineup for the discussions on Saturday is a crazy patchwork of some of the most influential food writers in the industry. The other two days focus on the nuts and bolts of food writing and how to break into the business.

I'll be speaking on a panel on Saturday afternoon about penning a best-selling food memoir. Also sharing their thoughts are Monica Bhide, Mimi Sheraton and Betty Fussell, moderated by veteran food writer Judith Weinraub. I'll be staying for the cocktail mixer afterward.

Skamania Lodge Weekend
The following week, I'll be the featured author of "Bed & Bookfest" at The Skamania Lodge nestled above the beautiful Columbia River Gorge not far from Portland, Ore., in a very special weekend presented by Kim Ricketts Events.

The weekend includes a special reception on Friday night, at which I'll offer the first-ever reading of material from my new book. The next day, I'll lead a cooking class and you'll join me for lunch. The package includes a copy of The Sharper Your Knife, accommodations, the reception, class and lunch. Should be fun. I'm looking forward to it. $209 for a single, $289 for a couple. Sign up here.

Coming up: IACP conference in April and a week as a guest teacher at Racho La Puerta at the end of May.

That bed & book & cookfest at Skamania Lodge looks like great fun for everyone. How exiting to share some of your new material with your guests and fans.

I just finished reading chapter 6 of The Sharper Your Knife and enjoy your writing tremendously. You had me in tears as I realized you lost your father the same age as I lost mine. Very touching to see how transcendent the act of cooking and caring was to you back then.

The title made me think of what my mother used to say about blunt knifes …

And so I continue loving every morsel you share with us. Yours is one of those books I hate to put down, and will hate to finish. So it's a good thing that there's another one on the way.

Darn! I have to go to a wedding that weekend in February, or I would definitely go. I've been longing to meet you since reading your book last year!
