This weekend, Sunday November 21 from 3pm-4:30pm, there will be a booksigning and get-together at La Cuisine cooking school in Paris.
On hand will be copies of Drinking French, L’Appart and The Perfect Scoop available for purchase and signing (see below for advance purchase info) and you’re welcome to bring already-purchased books too. It’s a great chance to pick up a book for yourself or for holiday gift-giving!
Wine will be provided by Maison Edouard Delaunay, a family-owned winery in Burgundy that was founded in 1893 and is now guided by Laurent Delaunay, the great-grandson of the founder. It’s an acclaimed Burgundy vignoble and we’re happy to offer tastings of their recent vintages.
We’ll be sampling Comté cheese – young and aged, thanks to Comté USA. It takes time for Comté to develop its taste and cheeses range from being aged for four months…to up to four years! Comté is the most consumed AOC cheese in France, with nearly 1,600,000 wheels produced every year in the pastures of the Jura region in France.
Allison Kave from Izzy’s Paris will be making cocktails to sip and savor. Bartender and baker Allison hails from Brooklyn and now delivers cocktails (and apéro snacks) using fresh ingredients from local markets and producers (in eco-responsible packaging) across Paris.
Notes (Please Read)
- Due to Covid, a limited number of people can be in the cooking school at the same time. We’re happy to have you come for a drink and something to eat – and get your book signed – but please be aware that if other people are waiting to enter, it’s very much appreciated if you limit your stay so others can participate.
- Masks are mandatory at the venue (worn over your nose) as it’s a working cooking school. You may take it down (such as when you’re on an airplane) for sipping and tasting.
- The venue cannot process credit cards or checks for book sales.
