Book Signings and San Francisco Sweets
It’s been an exciting two weeks. The book officially released on February 12th, and we celebrated with a TV appearance and book signing at Parnassus Books here in Nashville.
Want to see me make some charmingly green (mint chocolate chip) pancakes? Watch the clip. And if you’re in Memphis, Taylor and I will both be appearing on WREG-TV’s Live at 9 this Thursday morning, demoing the Italian-style Stuffed French Toast from the book.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the booksigning, hung around to chat about all things breakfast. We’re totally new at this and you made our job easy by being so welcoming and friendly.
Not wasting any time, the next day we boarded a plane for San Francisco, where we spent our Valentine’s day at the most romantic place on earth.
Alcatraz state penitentiary.
While it was mainly a trip to visit family, we managed to sneak in a few book events while we were there.
Omnivore Books is the cutest little bookstore, selling nothing but cookbooks. Can I move in? Seriously, I knew I didn’t have much room in my suitcase or I would have come home with an armload.
The next day we drove up to Napa where we had an event at Copperfield’s Books. We got to do a demo (our first ever!) in this gorgeous kitchen. Once again, I wanted to move in.
And a trip to Napa isn’t complete without a stop at Bouchon. Line and all.
Once our events were over with (phew) we had a few days left to explore the city. Our (ok, my) checklist of “must-see” places was very sugar-centric. Tartine, Bi-Rite Creamery, Miette, Bouchon, The Candy Store… we hit them all.
Despite even more lines (apparently my “must-sees” were everyone else’s too), we enjoyed every minute of it. We can’t wait to go back.
If only for another morning bun.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our events, including family, friends, family friends, and loyal readers. We loved getting to meet you in person! We especially loved finally getting to meet Liana (long time-client and good friend), and Lisa (my blogger adoptee, look at what an amazing blogger she’s grown into!) They are the sweetest, really and truly. Thanks for the sweets and jams! :)
We’ve got one more book signing planned in Memphis this Thursday at the Booksellers at Laurelwood. If you’re in the area we’d love to meet you!
