This Friday, I’ll be in dialog with award-winning author Michael Ruhlman at Archestratus books in Brooklyn on November 1st, from 6:30 to eight:30 to rejoice the discharge of his new e-book, From Scratch.
Michael’s opus to house cooking extols the virtues of mastering fundamental cooking methods, which implies doable recipes for the proper roast hen, in addition to conventional cassoulet, the final word BLT (with home-cured bacon, for individuals who wish to give go), Thai curries, and chocolate profiteroles. There will probably be time for a Q+A with Michael, whose opinions and observations are at all times attention-grabbing, and positive to impress some vigorous dialogue. (I promised him that I might pepper him with difficult questions on every little thing from authenticity, to creating crème anglaise with cream.) For more information concerning the occasion, and to enroll, go to the Archestratus bookstore web site.
