I'm going to check some of these out. This one looks particularly interesting:

FOOD + COOKS + BOOKS
Sunday May 6th, 4:00pm-5:00pm

Daniel Halpern, Author, Publisher of Ecco (moderator
)April Bloomfield, Author
JJ Goode, Author

In the past decade, there has been an incredible shift in the way we view and understand the chef; once a profession associated with long hours, tired feet and drudgery in the kitchen, the chef is now an artist, a writer and celebrity. We have seen an unprecedented explosion of cookbook publishing and chefs as writers. Yet, how do chefs manage their professional writing careers with their cooking careers? What is the role of the “collaborator” or “ghost-writer?” This panel illuminates how the reader (and the eater) can better understand the process of how food concept becomes book reality and how chefs manage their newfound author-celebrity.

Book Signing: 5:00pm-5:45pm
