We're just back in town and still a bit road weary. I'll have more recipes soon, but wanted to pass along this info first, before the weekend gets going. The Texas Book Festival takes place tomorrow and Sunday at the Capitol in downtown Austin.
There is a long list of authors from across the spectrum who will be participating, but the best part to me is the cooking tent, where cookbook authors will speak and demonstrate.
Rebecca Rather will be making recipes from her new book, The Pastry Queen Parties. You can also check out Lydia Bastianich, Guiliano Hazan, and Ellie Krieger. There will be panel discussions with Austin City Limits performers (who are also cooks) and "Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered." That's a lot to feast on.
