“Spoon Fed”: Kim Severson Booksigning

Kim Severson will launch the paperback edition of her memoir, Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life, in the Los Angeles area, and we encourage Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to attend a reading and booksigning:

When: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 beginning at 7:00pm
Where: Vroman’s Bookstore, 695 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena
Cost: Free admission and parking; copies of Spoon Fed will be available for purchase.

Spoon Fed reflects one of the best aspects of being involved in food and the food movement: Developing friendships and learning more about ourselves and others over a good meal. Kim’s chapters reflect on how she’s been influenced by Leah Chase, Marion Cunningham, Marcella Hazan, Edna Lewis, Rachael Ray, Ruth Reichl, Anne Zappa Severson, and Alice Waters.

The author of The Trans Fat Solution: Cooking and Shopping to Eliminate the Deadliest Fat from Your Diet, The New Alaska Cookbook: Recipes from the Last Frontier’s Best Chefs, and a host of excellent and provocative articles in The New York Times, Kim is now the Atlanta bureau chief for The New York Times. Previously she has been a dining writer for the Times and wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle on cooking and food culture. She has won four James Beard awards for food writing.

We’re sharing the book trailer below, and look forward to seeing many friends on March 1st.
