My book will be released next week (aahhhhhhhh!!!), and although we still have to wait a handful of days for the big day, I can share something very exciting with you right now, no wait required! Writing a cookbook has been a dream of mine ever since I can remember. It’s something that I thought about often and mentioned to my family all the time. They probably got sick of hearing it, just as much as I was sick of hearing, “It’ll happen. It’ll happen.” But right they were because happen it did. This cookbook dream is one of the things that really prompted me to start this blog of mine, because I figured if I don’t get a book, I at least want to produce useful content for people out there. It’s now been a little over 4 years, and I still love every moment of it. It’s because of this blog, and all of you in particular, that I got the opportunity to create this book. I will never forget that, and I am truly humbled by you all. One of the perks about writing a cookbook is having a book signing, one at the very least. Getting to meet fans and celebrating this great occasion with you all, makes it all worth it. With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be having a couple of demos and book signings over the next few weeks once the book is officially out in the world. I hope to see all of your beautiful faces there because a party of one is never as much fun as a party with other people, that’s for sure. Come help me celebrate the release of The Slider Effect and remember to preorder a copy, if you haven’t yet. Pencil it into your calendars right now because I expect to see you all there. Do you promise? Cross your heart and kiss your elbow?
LOS ANGELES PEEPS: I’m having an official Launch Party and book signing at the Hedley and Bennett Apron HQ! Talk about a dream come true! If you’re free and don’t have any plans 4th of July weekend (on Saturday July 2nd), you should definitely stop by and say hello! I’ll be there with complimentary wine from ClubW and beer to drink. There will also be cheese and crackers provided by Wisconsin Cheese and La Brea Bakery for you to nosh on. And of course a few sliders from the book! So come by and eat sliders and drink booze, even if it’s just for a little while, and help me celebrate the release of my first cookbook! After all, none of this would be possible if it weren’t for your continued support through the years. You deserve this party as much as I do. It’s going to be the best thing you do all summer, I promise!
There will be books available for sale, if you’re in need of a copy, or you can definitely bring your own copy if you’ve already preordered. The launch party is completely free to sign up so RSVP now: The Slider Effect Launch Party
SEATTLE FRIENDS: I’ll be in Seattle on Thursday June 30th doing an author talk, demo and book signing at the legendary Book Larder cookbook store! If you’re in Seattle and want to spend a couple hours with me and my book, you should definitely stop by. I’ll be cooking up my all-time favorite recipe from the cookbook, and talking about all things SLIDERS. It”ll be our very own pre 4th of July Slider Party! As a bonus treat, and a big thank you for coming, my friend and Seattle local, Lauren, is bringing some of her amazing Sweet Lo’s Ice Cream for us all to enjoy! You don’t want to miss it! RVSP NOW!
SAN FRANCISCO CATS: I’m very excited to share that I’ll be in your amazing city on July 16th at Williams-Sonoma Union Square! Just about the most awesome Williams-Sonoma ever made, if you ask me. The kitchen is out of this world (definite dream kitchen goals), and I’m very lucky to be doing a demo there, cooking up a couple of recipes from the book. Let’s take a moment to digest this because I still can’t believe it. If you see me, I give you permission to pinch me. Promise me you’ll stop by, eat a slider with me, and let me scribble in your book as a thank you for stopping by and supporting me. We’ll have lots of fun. I hope to see you there!
More events coming soon….
