CapRadio Readers are in for a triple creme treat in June. It is my great pleasure to announce the title for our June CapRadio Reads event. Paris to Provence: Childhood Memories of Food & France by Ethel Brennan and Sara Remington.
This book, part cookbook, part memoir, is not only a book of memories of childhoods spent exploring the roads and foods of France, but also the coming together of two new friends, with very similar memories of a very special place, but the most beautiful compilation of photos, maps and remembrances. We thought it fitting to celebrate the release of this gorgeous book in an equally gorgeous setting, so we invite you, our loyal CapRadio Readers to join us for a food and wine reception, a conversation with the authors Ethel Brennan and Sara Remington and a book signing at the beautiful vineyards of C. G. Di Arie Vineyard and Winery, 5200 Di Arie Road, Mount Aukum, Ca. 95656. This event will take place on Saturday, June 8th, from two until four in the afternoon. Please register to attend this very special event. You will be able to taste the wine in the vineyard where it began it's life and speak to the wine maker himself. If this isn't enough, I also encourage you to pick up a copy of Ethel Brennan's mother's book, A Pig in Provence, by Georgeanne Brennan. This book will give you the mother's perspective on the same childhood. Georgeanne Brennan in a local food celebrity, who does classes on Provencal cooking, works with schools to design healthy menus for kids and has written numerous cookbooks of her own.
In future blogs we will be discussing both books, but for now, please hurry to be among the few who have the opportunity to come to this very special day.
I look forward to seeing you in our own beautiful wine country on June 8th, but for now, as always, thanks for reading.
