Sunday, November 9th, 6:30 pm

We’re partnering with Book Passage in Corte Madera to present yet another fantastic “Cooks with Books” event featuring Gabrielle Hamilton, author of The Prune Recipe Book.

At 12, Gabrielle Hamilton started working as a dishwasher and from there went on to college, cook, cater, until she opened up New York's beloved Lower East Side restaurant Prune in 1999. Hamilton has become one of America's most recognized chef's and her bestselling memoir, Blood, Bones and Butter, captured reader's hearts. The Prune Recipe Book offers 250 favorite recipes written from the unique perspective from cook to cook. Her straight forward, down home cooking style garnered not only neighborhood loyalty but nods from food critics, gourmands and fellow chef's alike. Hamilton has won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef NYC, and writes regularly for Bon Appetit, GQ, The New Yorker, Saveur, and many other publications.

Attendees can expect an evening to remember! The event kicks off with a book signing with the Hamilton, followed by a lovely meal prepared by Chef de Cuisine Fabrice Marcon, inspired by the author's cookbook

Price includes the meal, wine, tax, gratuity, and a signed copy of the authors' book. Tickets are $125.00 per person, or $185.00 per couple (one book). Please call 415.927.0960 x1 to reserve, or visit Book Passage online!

Larkspur~Cooks with Books~Cal Peternell

Sunday, December 7th, 12:30 pm

We’re partnering with Book Passage in Corte Madera to present yet another fantastic “Cooks with Books” event featuring Cal Peternell, author of Twelve Recipes.

When his oldest son was leaving for college, Cal Peternell, the chef of San Francisco's legendary Chez Panisse, realized that, although he regularly made dinners for his family, he'd never taught them the basics of cooking. Based on the life-altering course of instruction he prepared and honed through many phone calls with his son, Twelve Recipes is the ultimate introduction to the kitchen. Peternell focuses on the core foods and dishes that comprise a successful home cook's arsenal, each building skill upon skill--from toast, eggs, and beans, to vinaigrettes, pasta with tomato, and rice, to vegetables, soup, meats, and cake.

Twelve Recipes will help home cooks develop a core repertoire of skills and increase their culinary confidence. Peternell tells you what basic ingredients and tools you need for a particular recipe, and then adds variations to expand your understanding. Each tip, instruction, and recipe connects with others to weave into a larger story that illuminates the connection between food and life. A deeply personal book, it was written by the chef alone and it glows with warmth and humor as he mulls over such mundane items as toast and rice to offer surprising new insights about foods that only seem exceedingly ordinary. It's a book you're as likely to keep by your bedside as your stovetop. With Peternell as your guide, the journey is pure pleasure and the destination is delicious.

Attendees can expect an evening to remember! The event kicks off with a book signing with the Peternell, followed by a lovely meal prepared by Chef de Cuisine Fabrice Marcon, inspired by the author's cookbook

Price includes the meal, wine, tax, gratuity, and a signed copy of the authors' book. Tickets are $105.00 per person, or $165.00 per couple (one book). Please call 415.927.0960 x1 to reserve, or visit Book Passage online!
