Readers, would you believe it? This Sunday, January 14th, marks the THIRD ANNIVERSARY of this website. Three years! Boy, I’m getting old. But the timing is perfect: Sunday is the day of my reading! I’m reading Chapter Four of my book, “The Amateur Gourmet,”* at Good World Bar & Grill at 3 Orchard Street at 5 PM. I’ll be joined by Andrea Strong of The Strong Buzz and Patrick Martins of the Slow Food Guide to New York City. Not only that but you’ll also get to meet the stars of the chapter I’m reading–the “Cross Cultures” chapter– Patty and Stella, who joined me several months ago for a cross-cultural adventure: Patty touring me through Korean food, and me touring her (and Stella) through Jewish food including a pastrami feast at Katz’s deli. So what better way to celebrate the anniversary, the reading, the book and the joys of smoked meat than to go for pastrami afterwards? Amateur Gourmet readers are hereby invited to march with me after the reading from Good World to Katz’s where we’ll gorge ourselves on pastrami. Sound good? See you there!
* The book is no longer “Eat Like A Grown-Up,” it’s “The Amateur Gourmet” because that’s catchier.
