Chef Michael Schwartz Launches Cookbook With A Talk and A Potluck
As we wrote yesterday, chef Michael Schwartz's cookbook -- Michael's Genuine Food -- is finally out. And Schwartz will make his first Miami appearance at Books & Books Coral Gables on Saturday, February 19 at 7 p.m.
This isn't your average book signing, though.
After a Q&A with the chef, stay on for live jazz and a potluck featuring dishes from the cookbook. The fun part? The chef won't be cooking. Nope, he invited a group of some 20 people -- friends, family and restaurant regulars -- to prepare one dish he assigned. Among the cooks for the night are Schwartz's wife, Tamara; Sam Gorenstein, chef at BLT Steak and a Michael's Genuine alum; Slow Food Miami leader, Donna Reno; Frodnesor of Food for Thought Miami; Renata Herminio, Michael's Genuine intern and Miami Ad School student; pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith; and others.
The event is free.
Also, don't forget we're giving away a free, signed copy of the book. You have until tomorrow to enter the drawing. If luck isn't on your side, you can order the book on Amazon or buy it at Books & Books.
