November 2016 book selection

My Culinary Journey

by Georgeanne Brennan


Posts About My Culinary Journey 

October 19, 2016 | Vicki Lorini

I had the opportunity to meet Georgeanne Brennan in 2007, when her book A Pig In Provence first came out.  Reading that book, and a stay in her charming 16th century home in a very small town in Provence made me a fan for life.  I am so happy to, once again, host Georgeanne for a book event.  This time, we at CapRadio Reads are honored to present the inaugural event for My Culinary Adventure: Foods and Fetes of Provence.  We will serve our usual lovely appetizers, some delicious wines and most important, a wonderful conversation with Georgeanne and our own Donna Apidone.  They will talk more about Georgeanne's time in Provence, her cooking and recipes and her family.  You will be able to smell the lavender in the air by the time this evening is over, so don't miss a minute of it.  Get your tickets now for an evening with Georgeanne Brennan, Tuesday, November 15 at 6 in the evening at Capital Public Radio.  I'll see you there.

After a thoughtful and very interesting discussion of The Hours Count at our last meeting of CapRadio Reads, we are ready to end our 2016 season with a party!  

But before we move on, I found this interesting piece from 60 Minutes on the Rosenberg brothers that I thought you might find interesting. 

Now on to the Party!

Please join us for fantastic food and drink and an even more fantastic interview with Donna Apidone In Conversation with Georgeanne Brennan.  James Beard Award winner Georgeanne Brennan will be with us to talk about her new book My Culinary Journey: Feasts and Fetes of Provence.  This book, part memoir and part cookbook, will make a terrific addition to any library and an instant hit as a gift.  

  We are so proud to have been chosen to host the launch party for this book and seating is going to go like hot cakes, or maybe in this instance crepes.  Be sure and get your ticket right now, so you don't miss out.  We are switching our usual night for the THIRD Tuesday in November.  Don't forget to vote on the second Tuesday and then come see us at 6pm, on the third Tuesday, in our Community Room for Georgeanne Brennan in conversation with Donna Apidone, Tuesday November 15 at 6pm.  See you there.
