Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 6:30pm

Left Bank Restaurant, Larkspur
Tickets: $120 per person; $185 per couple (includes meal & book)

The New York Times called her a “culinary guru” and from the looks of her latest cookbook, we can see why. In Everyday Dorie, she invites us to savor her family dishes, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to her yummy Lemon Goop. What makes her recipes stand out? She has a small surprise in each recipe that she writes about while teaching home chefs taste and technique. You’ll find practical recipes made with common ingredients easily found at the market or farmer’s markets and any of these can be used for a simple weeknight meal or for dinner with guests. Dorie Greenspan is the five-time James Beard Award-winner for many of her cookbooks and magazine articles. She has collaborated with many celebrated chefs, she has an online weekly baking club, and currently writes for the New York Times’ Sunday Magazine “On Dessert” monthly column.

“When I make something delicious, I want to share it, which is a lot like sharing my music with an audience. Cooking is my love language," writes country music icon Martina McBride. In her new cookbook Martina’s Kitchen Mix, she shares 150 of her favorite dishes - all tested by Martina herself. Readers will love the selection of recipes for breakfast and brunches, delicious salads, soups and sandwiches, cocktails, main courses, sides, desserts, her favorites and more. This award winning musician has at the same time released a new album entitled, “It’s the Holiday Season” which features her favorite Christmas songs, all backed by a symphony. If we’re lucky, she may break into song!
