Cooks and Books: What We Talk About When We Talk About Food, Part 2
We are so lucky to have a vibrant community of local food writers in our city, and last year we hosted five of them for a talk about "telling our stories through food". It was a great night of storytelling, laughter, food and friends at Tom Douglas' Palace Ballroom, and with many new fascinating books coming out, we've decided to have another party on Friday night, May 21st:
This year Kathleen Flinn (author of The Sharper the Knife The Less You Cry) will moderate a panel conversation with
-Lorna Yee and Ali Basye, authors of The Newlywed Kitchen: Delicious Meals for Couples Cooking Together
-Tara Austen Weaver author of The Butcher and the Vegetarian: One Woman's Romp Through a World of Men, Meat and Moral Crisis
-Amy Pennington, author of Urban Pantry: Tips and Recipes for a Thrifty, Sustainable and Seasonal Kitchen
-Langdon Cook, author of The Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager
Kathleen Flinn is a writer, author, private chef, cooking and writing teacher who left a life in journalism and technology to pursue her passion by studying at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Kathleen's second book will be published in early 2011 (tentatively titled Changing Courses) and will be a follow up food memoir to the bestselling The Sharper the Knife...). Lorna Yee writes about food for Seattle Magazine and on her wildly popular blog thecookbookchronicles; The Newlywed Kitchen in her first cookbook. Ali Basye is an award-winning writer and has been the editor of five magazines, most recently Seattle Bride Magazine. The Newlywed Cookbook is her fourth book.
Tara Austen Weaver is an award winning writer who has written on food, travel and adventure for Edible San Francisco, Chow.com and other places, and her blog Teaandcookies.blogspot.com has a monthly readership of 50,000 people. The Butcher and the Vegetarian is Tara's first book. Amy Pennington is the creator and owner of GoGo Green Garden, a edible gardening business and founder of UrbanGardenShare.org, a garden website that pairs city gardeners to garden space via an online matching site. For five years Amy produced the three hour weekly radio program In the Kitchen with Tom and Thierry for KIRO and is currently a regular contributor to Edible Seattle, Foodista.com and other journals; Urban Pantry is her first book. Langdon Cook has been a professional editor and writer his entire adult life, first at the San Francisco Guardian and the Berkeley Voice and then with Microsoft and Amazon.com. In 2004 he left Amazon to live in a cabin 'off the grid' with his family and became interested in foraging for northwest foods, a passion he chronicles in his blog Fat-of-the-land.blogspot.com. The Fat of the Land is Langdon's first book.
Join us for what is sure to be an engaging, opinionated and interactive conversation with these six authors! The evening takes place at Tom Douglas' Palace Ballroom beginning at 7pm.
