I am loving being in NYC in this glorious fall weather, but work (and the city’s nefarious distractions) keep me from posting. After three wonderful, indeed humbling, events in Chicago and Milwaukee to promote the new book, The Book of Schmaltz, and the new and updated version of Charcuterie, I’m no longer dreading the many events scheduled for fall. I’ll be back next week with a proper post on NYC (and a fab new restaurant I lucked into), but in the meantime, here’s a list of where and when I’ll be this fall, often with that charcuterie maestro, chef Brian Polcyn.

Full Events List on Facebook (or scroll down to see more detailed info). Hope to see as many of you as possible. Happy cooking!

In Cleveland, yay!

    Anybody ever eat carrot tops? I eat beat, celery and radish tops.
    Must be Donnas photo making me hungry.

      I’ve blanched them and made them into sauces and pestos before. Very earthy. I wouldn’t eat too much of them, though, since they contain low amounts of some toxin. (However, it’s my understanding you’d have to consume more than you’d ever wish to be at risk.)

    Wow. Unless you have a private jet at your disposal (a gift from the Salumi industry?) getting from Deer Isle ME to Michigan’s Pinky is probably gonna be a tale in itself.
