Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

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.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
