Peter Kaminsky book signing

Peter Kaminsky will be doing a book signing of his new book, Pig Perfect, at Michel Richard Citronelle on Saturday June 4th at 12 PM. Peter Kaminsky is a cookbook author, New York Times columnist, and "hamthropologist" and his new book, Pig Perfect: Encounters with Remarkable Swine and Some Great Ways to Cook Them, is all about his quests for all things porcine. Along with the book signing, Citronelle will be hosting a luncheon featuring all things pork:

Amuse Bouche of Pied de Cochon Salami
Tasting of Artisanal Ham
Jambon Persille Moulded in Aspic
Frisee Lardons with Eggs
Pork Shank Torte with Mushrooms and Onions
Baba Bourguignon with Red Wine and Cassis

For reservations, call The Smithsonian Associates at 202 375-3030 or visit Gen. Admission $141, RAP Members $95.



Also, there will be a "Food Writing for Food Lovers" on July 16th.


Oh. My. God. I'm so there!


You need to check out this event. I had the pork feast in Oxford, MS at Dan Latham's L&M's Kitchen and Salumeria and was in literal hog heaven. My only advice is to eat slowly and really listen to Kaminsky's stories if you haven't already read his book. And, if you haven't read the book, buy it. It is as lovely as the food he writes about in it.
