Join author, practicing physician, chef and founder Linda Shiue in presnting Spicebox Kitchen at Soul Food Salon.

Learn about Shiue's journey to practicing culinary medicine and founding a teaching kitchen for patients and her approach to healthy cooking, which focuses on flavor first. You'll learn about her debut cookbook, Spicebox Kitchen, which combines her training in medicine with her love of cooking and offers spice-filled recipes inspired by her travels. Dr. Shiue will be demonstrating a few recipes from Spicebox Kitchen.

Linda Shiue is a practicing physician, chef and founder of Thrive Kitchen at Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco, a popular vegetable-forward teaching kitchen to inspire people to cook for health. She believes that the best medicine is prevention. Her cooking classes showcase seasonal produce, lavishly flavored with spices and fresh herbs. Her food writing has been published widely and she has been interviewed frequently on television and in print.

After she took her first French cooking class at age seven, it took almost 40 more years before she finally went to culinary school at the San Francisco Cooking School. In between, she studied anthropology and medicine at Brown, with fieldwork in rural Sichuan, China, and in uber-urban Singapore, continued her medical training at the University of California, San Francisco, and learned about plant-based nutrition at Cornell University.  
She has been known to play spin-the-globe to choose travel destinations. An enthusiastic eater, she inspires strangers to copy her order and restaurant chefs to send her a little something special.

In addition to practicing medicine and running Thrive Kitchen, she is the mother of two teenage daughters in San Francisco.
 Spicebox Kitchen: Eat Well and Be Healthy with Globally Inspired, Vegetable Forward Recipes is her first cookbook.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
