Paul Hawken - Drawdown (San Rafael)

Monday, May 1, 2017 - 7:00pm

Tickets: $35 (includes book)
Co-Sponsored by Environmental Forum of Marin
Angelico Hall, Dominican University

In Drawdown, renowned environmentalist Paul Hawken has assembled a team of over 200 scholars, scientists, policymakers, business leaders, and activists to illustrate the hundred most substantive solutions to combat climate change that together will not only slow down the growth of carbon emissions, but reverse them altogether. The book analyzes how and when humanity can reach climate drawdown, the point at which greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere begin to decline on a year-to-year basis, by mapping and modeling how we can scale those hundred technologies over the next thirty years. Printed on recycled paper, the book will be one of three centerpieces to Project Drawdown, which will also feature an open-source database and an interactive digital platform that together describe how these solutions can be scaled globally across continents and across many different ways of life.

These are all “no regrets” approaches—actions that regardless of their climate value have intrinsic benefits to communities and economies. They improve lives, create jobs, restore the environment, enhance security, generate resilience, and advance human health. Together they will mobilize society into taking the climate change conversation from problem definition to problem solving, from fear and apathy to collaboration and regeneration.

Paul Hawken is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist, and author. Starting at age 20, he dedicated his life to sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. His practice has included starting and running ecological businesses, writing and teaching about the impact of commerce on living systems, and consulting with governments and corporations on economic development, industrial ecology, and environmental policy. Paul Hawken has written seven books published in over 50 countries in 29 languages including four national bestsellers, The Next Economy, Growing a Business, The Ecology of Commerce, and Blessed Unrest.

Celebrate the joys of a great day in the kitchen and a meal shared with family and friends with this follow-up to the bestselling, IACP Award-winning Twelve Recipes, featuring next level, home-cook-friendly recipes for occasions large and small

Twelve Recipes provided the basic techniques and recipes for essential home cooking. Now, A Recipe for Cooking takes home cooks to the next level.

Cal Peternell gives you everything you need to cook for big get-togethers, holiday feasts, family occasions, and for a special dinner for two. He organizes the recipes by season to help cooks plan their meals from first bite to last—how a meal should start, what should be the main attraction, what should be served alongside, and how to choose the perfect finish.

Illustrated with charming color photos and drawings, this book offers a range of delicious, easy-to-master fare: Savory Tart with Onions, Olive, and Anchovies; Shredded Zucchini Fritters with Basil Mayonnaise; Citrus Salad with Ginger, Cilantro, and Saffron-toasted Pistachios; Fish and Shellfish Soup; Rolled Pork Loin Roast Stuffed with Olives and Herbs; Lasagna Bolognese; Belgian Endive Gratin with Gruyere and Prosciutto; and a Blood Orange and Buttermilk Tart. Each of Cal's recipes utilizes the freshest, most delicious ingredients of each season.

Here are meals to share with close family and good friends—to laugh, drink, and cook with—as well as dishes that give you some quiet time in the kitchen, slicing, seasoning, and simmering. With food to make introductions, to commemorate, to celebrate, even, on occasion, to gently instigate, this is Cal Peternell at his wittiest, warmest, and most inspiring.

Cal Peternell grew up on a small farm in New Jersey and graduated with a BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His cooking career began at Bix in San Francisco, and continued to Biba and The Blue Room in Boston, and back to San Francisco for a sous chef spot at Loretta Keller’s Bizou.

Cooks with Books: Desmond Tan & Kate Leahy - Burma Superstar (San Francisco)

Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 6:30pm

Burma Love Restaurant in San Francisco • Singles: $120; Couples: $195 (one book)
Event ticket includes meal, wine, tip, and a signed copy of the book.

Burma Superstar: Addictive Recipes from the Crossroads of Southeast Asia is an eclectic collection of 80 achievable yet spectacular recipes from famed San Francisco Bay Area Burmese restaurant, Burma Superstar.

For years, Bay Area residents and out-of-towners have packed the house—and lined up out the door—for the salads, curries, rice, and stir-fries served at Burma Superstar, a beloved Burmese restaurant with four locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. This collection of recipes includes favorites like Tea Leaf Salad, Samosa Soup, Pumpkin Pork Stew, Garlic Noodles, and Black Rice Pudding that have made the group of restaurants one of the most recognizable in the Bay Area but it also takes readers into the kitchens of Burmese home cooks, whose style of cooking drives menu inspiration. As Burma—now called Myanmar—opens up to the world after a half century of seclusion, there has never been a more exciting time to share the multi-ethnic flavors of Burma Superstar. 

Desmond Tan was born in Burma and came to San Francisco when he was 12 years old. He has grown Burma Superstar into four thriving, unique locations (with a fifth on the way). In 2014, he launched Mya Foods, the first Bay Area company to import Burmese ingredients—most notably laphet, Burma’s famous fermented tea leaves. Kate Leahy co-authored A16 Food + Wine, the IACP Cookbook of the Year and recipient of the IACP Julia Child First Book Award; SPQR; The Preservation Kitchen, which Eater.com ranked as one of the most notable books of the year; and Cookie Love.

2016 One Book One Marin 2017 - Culminating Event (Dominican)

Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 7:00pm

Anthony Marra's acclaimed story collection, The Tsar of Love & Techno, has been selected as the 2017 honoree for One Book One Marin. Now celebrating its 11th anniversary, One Book One Marin seeks to build a stronger, enriched community through community dialogue, and the exploration of literature and culture. The One Book One Marin program will conclude with a special event on Thursday, April 13, 2017, at Dominican University's Angelico Hall, featuring Anthony Marra and KQED host Michael Krasny in conversation.

..........................................................................................................................

From Anthony Marra, the author of National Book Award longlist selection and New York Times bestseller A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, comes The Tsar of Love and Techno, a collection of dazzling, poignant, and lyrical interwoven stories about family, sacrifice, the legacy of war, and the redemptive power of art.

This stunning, exquisitely written collection introduces a cast of remarkable characters whose lives intersect in ways both life-affirming and heartbreaking. A 1930s Soviet censor painstakingly corrects offending photographs, deep underneath Leningrad, bewitched by the image of a disgraced prima ballerina. A chorus of women recounts their stories and those of their grandmothers, former gulag prisoners who settled their Siberian mining town. Two pairs of brothers share a fierce, protective love. Young men across the former USSR face violence at home and in the military. And great sacrifices are made in the name of an oil landscape unremarkable except for the almost incomprehensibly peaceful past it depicts. In stunning prose, with rich character portraits and a sense of history reverberating into the present, The Tsar of Love and Techno is a captivating work from one of our greatest new talents.

Anthony Marra is the author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, which won the National Book Critics Circle’s inaugural John Leonard Prize, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award in fiction, and the Barnes and Noble Discover Award and appeared on over twenty year-end lists. Marra’s novel was a National Book Award longlist selection as well as a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and France’s Prix Medicis. He received an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, where he teaches as the Jones Lecturer in Fiction. He has lived and studied in Eastern Europe, and now resides in Oakland, California.

Big-flavored vegetarian dishes from around the globe, from the James Beard Award -- and IACP Award–winning author Marie Simmons.

The best of our vegetarian recipes have always drawn inspiration from other cultures. In Whole World Vegetarian, Marie Simmons follows her culinary wanderlust, bringing together a collection of bold, imaginative dishes and seamlessly adapting them to contemporary tables.

Cooks can expect a wealth of sumptuous options: rice- and corn-stuffed poblano chiles; Greek-style mac-and-cheese with summer squash; Indonesian vegetable salad with peanut dressing. Even the homiest dishes deliver rich rewards, like South American pumpkin–black bean stew with prunes. All have fresh twists: In a zucchini lasagna, squash replaces pasta, and a cold beet soup is replete with chopped fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and apples. A Persian herb omelet gets an unexpected lift with baking powder. From a quick and little-known dip of Iranian yogurt, spinach, and caramelized onions garnished with toasted walnuts to shakshuka, a spicy Tunisian ratatouille crowned with poached eggs and fresh herbs, all become accessible and inviting under Simmons’ guidance.

The winner of a Julia Child Award and two James Beard Awards, Marie Simmons is a cooking teacher and the author of more than a dozen cookbooks, including Sur La Table's Things Cooks Love, Fresh & Fast, The Good Egg, and 365 Ways to Cook Pasta.

Uncultivated foods are better for the planet and your plate, so for best health -- and best flavor! -- go wild with Cooking Wild: More than 150 Recipes for Eating Close to Nature!

To eat wild foods, you needn’t crawl through the forest or hunt your own game. Many wild foods are as close by as your local supermarket. But this doesn’t mean that wild foods aren’t worth the hunt. This book takes a big view of “wild,” including recipes and information on both foraged, uncultivated foods as well as looking at the progeny of wild foods more conveniently found for sale alongside their conventional cousins.

Americans are increasingly concerned about where their food comes from and how it’s produced, packaged, and marketed. Heritage breeds, Paleo diets, farmers’ markets, and environmental and climate concerns all point to increased interest in foods that are as natural, untreated, and healthy as they can be. Plants, seafood, meat, and poultry are all covered in more than 150 recipes, and will serve as a historical, agricultural education for your kitchen.

Chef John Ash is a James Beard award-winning author, teacher, and restaurateur. He co-hosts a weekly food and wine radio talk show, The Good Food Hour, broadcast in Sonoma County, and teaches cooking classes at various cooking schools, including the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California. His most recent book, Culinary Birds, won a James Beard Award for Best Single Subject Cookbook. He lives in Santa Rosa, California.
