Upcoming visiting chefs and authors

September 16th, 2008 by Dawn

Cooks & Books has a great lineup of visiting chefs and authors coming to Seattle this fall.  Kim Ricketts has been organizing these dinners for several years now, where she hosts a chef or food writer at a Seattle restaurant, promoting a new book release.  In past, we’ve attended dinners with Michael Ruhlman and Michael Pollan, two of our favorite food writers.  The events this fall look really exciting, and there are still seats left.

There’s been one new addition to the lineup that I’m particularly excited about – I finally get to meet Marcella Hazan!  She is my all-time favorite cookbook author.  Hers were the first cookbooks that Eric and I really learned to cook from, and we still consider our Hazan cookbooks the ultimate references for delicious Italian cooking.  I say “Hazan cookbooks” because her son, Giuliano, also has several outstanding books, all sitting on our cookbook shelf.

Marcella and her husband Victor, who translates her words and thoughts into the English text in her books, are coming to celebrate the release of her memoir.  I’m looking forward to reading it – each person who attends a Cooks & Books dinner gets a copy of the book, which you can get personally signed by the author.

    I did! I like the part about “artichokes so big they offend her” – she has the same attitude in her cookbooks. 🙂

    Oh man, I would love to go to the Hazan dinner, but saw that it costs $140. Sigh. If only it was remotely close to my birthday or x-mas or something… I’d be all over it!

    I think we’ll nix the mixer if we ever decide to make Swedish meblaalts again. The milk/bread mush in this recipe had a very similar effect on the meat and wasn’t nearly as gross.I had always wanted a pasta machine before Kevin gave me one for my birthday. It’s the greatest thing ever. It’s a little time consuming to roll out a batch of pasta, but I would imagine doing it by hand wouldn’t be nearly as fun.

  5. Leticia says:

    While not the hugest mebatall fan, I do love Swedish mebatalls. This may be because I only have them once a year, at Christmas. I don’t think I’ve seen them made with an electric mixer though More importantly, HOW JEALOUS AM I that you own a pasta machine!!!? Answer: insanely jealous. I need to just make the investment, as rolling pasta out by hand is very very tiring. But still delicious.
