Larkspur's Winter Cookbook Extravaganza 2016!
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur invites you to our annual Winter Cookbook Extravaganza on Saturday, December 3rd at 1:00pm.
Yes, friends, the holidays are upon us once again, which means it's time for family, friends, and food. Lots and lots of food. As we all know, nothing else brings people together in quite the same way: we bond over flavors, we swap stories and recipes, and we sit back sated and sedated. Sure you've got your time-honored recipes and go-to dishes, but isn't it time to bring some fresh flavors to your table?
Come to our ever popular Winter Cookbook Extravaganza! Joining us this time to present their cookbooks (and of course bring some excellent samples) will be authors, Heidi Gibson & Nate Pollak and Irvin Lin. Hosting will be Duggan McDonnell, author of Drinking the Devil's Acre, who will be bringing some festive holiday punch!
Duggan McDonnell is a writer, cocktail educator and historian, and the owner of Cantina, a popular San Francisco watering hole. During the 1870s and 80s, a single bar-filled block in San Francisco called the Devil's Acre threw what may have been the most enduring party the world has ever seen. Duggan McDonnell is in love with the city of his forefathers and its ever-flowing cocktails, and it shows in Drinking the Devil's Acre, a history-packed drinking tour through one of the most beloved cities in the world.
