It's been awhile since I've checked in. Cooks and Books has had 4 meetings so far, and we've read some really wonderful books. I think the favorites have been David Lebovitz's "Sweet Life in Paris", and Brad Kessler's "Goat Song".Just to remind you, we meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Chestnut Street store, at 7PM. We're excited to welcome anyone who is interested in food: making it, eating it, and of course, reading about it.Our next meeting is on February 19. Our book is Kristin Kimball's "The Dirty Life", not your typical 'city-slicker-moves- to-the-country' memoir.
We're so sorry to announce that tomorrow night's event with James and Caitlin Freeman has been postponed due to illness. We are working on re-scheduling, so watch this space!
We in the Cooks and Books club take coffee very seriously. Love doesn't quite say it... need is more like it. Not just any cup of joe will do, of course. We in the Bay Area are lucky enough to have true coffee artisans living among us, folks who go that extra mile to find and roast the best beans, and present us with something that is awfully close to nirvana in a mug.James and Caitlin Freeman from Blue Bottle Coffee have a new book out. THE BLUE BOTTLE CRAFT OF COFFEE is not only packed with indispensible information and history, but also contains some great recipes so you can make your own delicious treats to go with your perfect cup. We're pretty excited that James and Caitlin will be at our store in the Marina (2251 Chestnut St in San Francisco) this coming Thursday, October 11 at 7PM to talk about their new book. See you there!
