Cooks with Books Events

Cooks with Books
events take place at Bay Area restaurants. Guests 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. The ticket price includes the meal, wine, tax, tip & a signed copy of the author’s book. When registering online, please let us know in the "comments" section at checkout if you have any dietary restrictions or seating preferences.

"Jane Fonda was funny and sarcastic and very frank," especially when talking about sex. Despite the opportunity for naughty talk, one questioner asked, "Who does your hair?" in response to which she introduced the audience to her tablemate, "my wonderful hairdresser from Beverly Hills."
- Barbara Squires

"Not only did she [Jane Fonda] pay for her own coffee, she insisted that the hairdresser and I join her for a lovely dinner at Chez Panisse."
- Author handler David Golia

 
Both Cooks with Books and Literary Luncheons are delectable and engaging events. Attendees leave these celebratory gatherings full of ideas and with a signed copy of the author's book to savor when they get home.
