VERY excited finally to see San Francisco's Ferry Building, a marketplace committed to the artisanial food community. I'll be at Book Passage at 2 pm. If you're having trouble finding a copy of Elements of Cooking in the bay area, there are sure to be some there. My publisher emailed last week to say they'd already gone back for a second printing so you'll want to make sure you get a signed first edition of this instant classic! (I know, I'm not one to make that claim--I've just always wanted to use that silly phrase that seems to be uniquely American). Bloggers especially welcome!
