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.

SHOW ME HOW
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.
