Meet Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman This Sunday

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2012 at 12:00 PM


We've been admirers of Deb Perelman and her cooking blog Smitten Kitchen for years, and are stoked that her simple, elegant recipes and gorgeous photos have finally made their way into a cookbook. As she writes in a blog post announcing its release, the cookbook has 105 recipes (85 new, never appeared on the site) and a cover that stays open to the right page when flat on the counter (home cooks everywhere are cheering). Express your admiration and buy a book from Perelman herself during her signing this Sunday at Omnivore Books from 2-3 p.m.

Flipping through, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is one of those books where everything sounds delicious -- the pistachio masala lamb chops, the avocado tartine with cucumber and sesame seeds, the marbled pumpkin gingersnap tart -- and immediately makes us start planning dinner parties in our head. And with more than 300 photos taken by Perelman, chronicling everything from step-by-step how to's to beauty shots of the final dishes, the finished product looks as good as we're sure the recipes will taste.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
