It's official: we are SO not lazy! The mid-summer leg of our Lazy Gourmet book tour saw us at four events in the span of two weeks, including a trip down to Pasadena's famous Vroman's bookstore, where we were warmly greeted by a huge and enthusiastic crowd of Southern Californians. The previous weekend we'd enjoyed a mingley meet-and-greet at Aldea, a gorgeous, elegant, funky homewares store in San Francisco's Mission district. And yesterday we woke up at the crack of dawn to make our Fig Salad with Mint and Pistachios (The Lazy Gourmet, p.66) for Henry Tenenbaum on the KRON 4 Weekend News—then hustled up to Corte Madera for Book Passage's annual Travel and Food Writing & Photography Conference, where we spoke about authoring and bloggering.
As always, we met some wonderful people, saw some old friends, sold some books, and shared a scrumptious buffet of Lazy Gourmet favorites: Savory Blue Cheese Shortbread Crackers, Fig and Onion Jam, White Bean Spread with Parmesan and Mint, and Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade. (All recipes are in the book. And I swear on a stack of People magazines, I'm not tired of any of them yet!)
Check our events page to find out where we'll be next. We've got some fun stuff planned and hope to see you along the way!
