Cooks with Books

Cooks with Books events take place at Bay Area restaurants. Attendees attend a meal that is prepared under the supervision of a local or celebrity chef (and since the Bay Area is one of the world's culinary capitals, that often means both!). Throughout the meal, the author-chef mingles with attendees and discusses his or her latest book. Coffee and conversation usually end about two hours later. These are happy, convivial events for any lover of fine food and wine. The ticket price includes the meal, wine, tax, tip & a signed copy of the author’s book.
