I’m an ex New Yorker now living in Florida. Any chance for a book tour stop in Orlando, FL
(please say Yes!!)
I second a Florida request!
Truly nobody has requested a Florida book tour stop more often than me! 😍 I’ll keep pressing for it.
I have a restaurant in St Louis with an amazing event space adjacent AND wonderful neighborhood bookstore that would love to be a part of an event! I’ve been following you for so long—over 12 years! Would be an honor❤️
Will you be coming to St. Louis?
Come to St. Louis, MO! You have quite a following here!
Ooh what restaurant? I’ve been following since 2009 and would love a St. Louis stop!
say its true
Vancouver BC CANADA right
not that other place
We will be adding a Vancouver event!
Yay! Can’t wait for the details
Double yay for Vancouver!! Been following your blog since I lived in NY in 2006 and I’m so amazed and happy that you’re still going!
Another Smitten Kitchen super fan from St. Louis here!
Yes – Florida snowbirds would love to meet you! Tampa or Sarasota area, please!
Yes, Florida, please; Tampa Bay area.
Another Floridian fan of yours here! Tampa please or St. Pete!
Yes! Tampa, please!
I third a Florida request! 🙂
I would love for you to come to Texas. If you decide to make it all of the way to Waco, we have a cute little bookstore named Fabled! Otherwise, I’m determined to make the drive to see you this tour!
Yet another request for Florida… Boca Raton, please!!
Requesting a Tampa stop, but I would probably drive to Orlando.
Maybe I could talk some other moms into it and make it an overnight. Eat at Jaleo at Disney Springs, do some shopping. OK, I’ve talked myself into Orlando, please do come.
Please come to Edmonton, AB or sell signed books from a Canadian location so shipping doesn’t cost as much as the book! And I promise to never judge the way you cut a sandwich 😂
There is a CA edition from the wonderful Appetite imprint. You can find links to various stores (two CA listings, too) to preorder from on this page: https://smittenkitchen.com/books/
Looking forward to seeing Vancouver, BC on the book tour schedule! Love your recipes!!
I hope it’s coming too! I was there for the last two books tours and it’s lovely.
Ahhh please come to Vancouver!! I want to see you in Seattle but the gas prices are crazy right now!
And Victoria, BC?? It is charming here!
I second the Victoria request! :)
I’d come to the Vancouver date!
Yes, I’m hoping for a Vancouver date! Great food scene here and you will love it. You are coming all the way up the west coast, no point in ending in Seattle….take the drive up to YVR please!
Hello ! Delighted for the new book ! Above it says Boston Wed, Dec 7, but on the Brookline/Coolidge site it says Thurs, Dec 8. Since I might actually make it to this one just wanted to check. Take care!
Now fixed, sorry for the trouble. It’s 12/8!
As a Jersey girl now living in Cleveland, I’m selfishly requesting you consider adding more stops in the midwest, specifically Cleveland, so we can discuss all things bagels (just one of the many things I miss terribly from home). We got to hang briefly on your first book tour when you were at the Barnes & Noble in Raritan, and I’m not ashamed to admit I was fangirling.
I agree– I mean, why is it always Philly and not Pittsburgh?!?! Anyone in Jersey or Eastern PA could easily go to one of the several NYC dates. We’d eagerly welcome Ohioans if it meant that we got an event in the best city in Pennsylvania. =]
Do you have the tickets & details for the Irvine, CA. event available?
As soon as it’s available, I’ll add it here. Many of these events were just booked in the last week so not all sites have been updated yet.
Please come to Nashville!
I second that request!!
Third! It’s great! You’d love it!
And a fourth!! I have been checking back to see if there’s AN-Y-WHERE close to middle TN!
Please come to Nashville! Parnassus Bookstore would be fabulous for book signing!
Yay! You are coming to Seattle! When will we know where and how to purchase tickets?
So happy to see you are coming to Seattle. I’ve been using your recipes for a few years now – everything comes out great and I get rave reviews when sharing with others.
Please come down South! Atlanta would be fantastic or Fairhope, AL at Page & Palette
Hey Deb – Try coming to the Atlanta area – If you need a contact of a place to go I might be able to help! I started following you when I lived in California and I have been following you for so many years I forgot when I started. Congratulations on the new book!
Come to Austin!!!
Come to Houston. Big market.
Second Houston! You came for the second book and it was so nice to meet you!
Yes! Come to Houston!
Yes! Please try to work in Houston.
Have you ever been to Charleston, SC? It’s a very nice place with tons of excellent restaurants. I’ll take you to dinner! 😉
Yes please come to Charleston!! You’d love it!
How about visiting the Mid-Atlantic Region? Any chance of book signing in Rehoboth Beach DE? Maryland or Virginia? I’ll most likely purchase the book; but, I would love to meet the author!
Come to Maine!!!
Don’t forget flyover country (KY, IN, TN)!
What?? No Atlanta??? 😱
Any chance we might see you in Cleveland or Columbus or Cincinnati? Preeeeeetty please? :)
Yes! Yes! I second CLEVELAND!
Oh come down south to the Houston area!
Any chance you have plans for Cincinnati? Or even Columbus?
Atlanta please! We love Smitten Kitchen!
Yes Atlanta please!!
I pre-ordered your cookbook already, and can’t wait to see you! Are you doing live book signings at your events? (ie: Do I just purchase a ticket, or a ticket AND signed book?) Thank you!
How about adding Santa Fe, NM to the list. A lovely foodie city, unique and fun to visit,
You are missing Atlanta!
Oh please come to upstate NY!! Rochester? Syracuse? Ithaca? I’ll travel!!
London (UK), please!
Please come to Vancouver (Canada)! It’s a beautiful place to visit, with great food, and we’d love to meet you!
hi there Deb!
Would you be interested in adding Vermont to your Spring tour?
I work at both Kiss the Cook Kitchen Shop on Church Street in Burlington, and also at the South Burlington Public Library. The library has a spanky new 100 seat auditorium which just recently hosted Gregory Maguire in May. Our favorite local independent bookstore supplied books for the author signing, which we could easily do for you. We would LOVE to host you!
I hope you will consider.
Thank you for your time.
It would be so much fun to collaborate!
If I purchase the ticket option without the book, am I allowed to bring my copy of the book to be signed? I want the book in my hands on release day, I don’t think I can wait another two weeks :)
Why are there no Texas dates?! Please come to Austin!
Disappointed you are not coming to Tucson AZ, or even Phoenix. We would love to see you…………..
I second AZ I’m in Phoenix but Tucson is doable and beautiful in the winter.
Another vote for Phoenix!
Another vote for Tucson – or really anywhere in AZ!
Another vote for Arizona! Phoenix or Tucson or even Sedona or Flagstaff would all work!
Your website is the best! I/ve loved your videos and every recipe I have tried… (It feels like an old friend is visiting me when I engage.)
So sorry you’re not coming to Utah or Montana~
If you love barbeque, please schedule Kansas City, Missouri on your upcoming book tour. It is a very friendly city and I would love to have you sign my pre-ordered copy.
Yes, please!! I’m from Wichita, KS but would come to KC for this book tour.
I hope you’re planning a Chicago visit!
Holding out hope for Salt Lake City!
+1 for Utah!
Come to Baltimore!!!
Come to Nashville! We are more than country music. We re a foodie paradise with great chefs and restaurants from many different cultures.
Please come to Dallas, we love you!
Please please please!!!!
I see you will be in Seattle in January – please come up to VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA!!!!!
Every time one of your cookbooks is published and you go on tour, I am also traveling, taking a long road trip – to the opposite side of the country!! I hope I will meet you some day. You are my go-to for all things cooking. Have a great tour!
Santa Barbara, California is lovely in the winter…. ;)
What about LA. Look at Diesel book store in the country mart. I think you love the location and be a great success.
What about Boise, Idaho! Any chance you’ll have a local book signing?
Please come to Austin! (sounds like Boston but without the “chowdah”)
What?? A book tour stop in Toronto but no stop in Montreal? Oh Deb…you’ve just added fuel to the fire in the longstanding Toronto-Montreal rivalry!
Please, please, please come to Sacramento, CA!
How about some Hudson Valley dates (Oblong Books, Rough Draft, Binnacle Books…)?
Yes, definitely Vermont. It’s not only the most beautiful state in the nation, we have cold winters and stay home using your recipes to cook wonderful meals. Please consider us.
How about Scottsdale, AZ? I have already pre-ordered your latest cookbook and would love to tell you, in person, how much I enjoy all your recipes as well as checking out videos. You’re a gem!
Denver dates all booked!?!?! The day you announced your book tour!?!? Wow. My pre-order for the new book is already entered through Amazon.
Any chance you’d ever be in AZ for the tour? Otherwise I’d need to drive to CA! Love your blog and books–always something interesting!
I’d love to register for the Seattle event at the Book Larder– do you know when the link will be live?
Does this mean that I should cancel my current order so I can buy your new book when you come to Portland? Or is it okay to bring in a copy I already have?
Please travel South! Florida winters are the best!
Wow, the gourmet capital of the South and you’re not coming to Houston, TX? Too bad, you’re gonna miss some really good food. Houston has a foodie reputation.
I would just love if you came to Phoenix/Scottsdale AZ! Fingers and toes crossed 😅
Any chance NC could be on the list? Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte? Durham is the coolest and has wonderful restaurants, but very willing to travel!!! :)
Yay! So glad you are coming to Pasadena!
If you’re going to be in Seattle why not drive 2 hours north to Vancouver, BC???
We all love Smitten Kitchen….!!!
Hope you’ll be able to make it to Vancouver again. ☺️
Vero Beach please! The Vero Beach Book Center is an amazing independent book store that hosts many many authors.
Please don’t forget Boise idaho and rediscovered books!
I’m certain that you want to come to Florida in the Spring! Specifically St Augustine!
I am excited for you! Can’t wait for you to come to the West coast :). Congrats on the new book.
You are going to Colorado but not extending it just a bit more for Utah? You were very successful at The King’s English in Salt Lake City maybe 10 years ago, and I would LOVE to see you again.
And congratulations on what looks to be yet another very successful book!
Austin, TX is calling!
Can’t wait to meet you in Seattle! I’m a big fan!
We are hoping to see you come upstate. Kingston or Troy? Do I need to have a book store request it? I could think of quite a few groupies that would love to attend.
Come to Canada!!!!! especially Vancouver!
I had tickets for your first stop in NYC for the day Tropical Storm Sandy hit at the beginning of your first book tour. I was out off town when you came to Seattle, my home city. My youngest daughter lived in NYC at the time and purchased the tickets for your postponed first stop of your tour. I was deeply disappointed at missing your tour; I even made my daughter go with me to where the book tour was supposed to meet just to make sure you weren’t there.
My daughter attended the rescheduled book tour date in NYC , purchased your cook book for both of us and had them autographed. Your book was my Christmas present.
My daughter introduced me to your blog early on and I have introduced multiple friends to your cook book which they then purchased.
My daughter and I love your blog and cookbooks. Please keep blogging!!
And we loved the arrival of each child and your pictures to watch them grow. Are you sure your son is getting ready for his Bar Mitzvah . He cannot be 13 already
Alaska is but a short hop from Seattle – Anchorage would welcome your visit. Title Wave Books, while small, would be a lovely venue. Just sayin’.
My sister and I are looking forward to seeing you in Pasadena!
Please come to Warwick’s in La Jolla (San Diego)! The country’s oldest continuously family-owned and operated bookstore. Wonderful independent bookstore!!
I second this (and also live in La Jolla). Or maybe the JCC would host you!
Come to the bet bookstore in the southwest: Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ! I love your books. ♥️
Would love to help welcome you to Durham, NC! Lots of great restaurants and local bookstores in the Triangle area! (And would pair nicely with stops in ATL, Charleston, SC, and farther south :) )
I second a NC visit! I’m in Fayetteville and would travel to Raleigh-Durham area for just this!
Ohhhhh I’m so excited to see Seattle on your tour dates!! YAY!!! I can’t wait to buy my ticket as soon as they’re available!
Thank you for your delicious recipes. You have helped me discover my love for cooking and it’s been a joy to walk with you through your blog and prior cookbooks.
I’m hoping your tour will stop in Michigan! Would you consider a visit to Grand Rapids? We have a lovely city near Lake Michigan and I think you’d have a great turn out! There are a number of cute little bookshops and a good friend of mine works at a new one – Plumbfield Books in Ada!
Thank you for traveling all the way to Portland, Oregon! Look forward to seeing you at Powell’s Bookstore.
Hi, please consider Montreal, Canada. It would be a delight to meet you. I’m sure you would like it too.
Anywhere in Central Florida!!!
Triple ditto central FL!! ❤️
Hi Deb, any details on the book signing in Irvine? I may plan to travel there with a girlfriend celebrating my 65th birthday..We love you and NEED to meet you!!!
If not Phoenix/Scottsdale would be amazing.. would not think to ask to come to Detroit in the winter!
YES!! Saw you at Vroman’s Pasadena for the last book tour, can’t wait for this one!
How about coming a bit further south in January to include San DIego with your Irvine and LA visits?
Deb, please come south on your book tour! We have a great locally owned bookstore (coffee shop and bar) called Page & Palette. We have a lovely town full of artists and writers – Fairhope, AL. P&P has book signings and presentations from authors almost every week.
Let me know if I can help plan a stop in a future Southern swing!
For the book signing at Union Square can we buy books there or should we pre order?
You can buy books there. :)
Here’s hoping a stop in Vero Beach, Florida will be possible. We have a lovely book store that welcomes book signing often!
Why not come to Naples Fla you won’t want to leave bring the family!
Please come to Asheville, NC!
Please come to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) in NC!
**PLEASE** come to Richmond, Virginia! the Richmond Public Library, or Henrico County Library you;d probably have a space for something like this.
Anyone out there have an extra ticket to the December 5th live event in DC that they would be willing to sell to me? I will be in DC for work (I am out of town for the event locally for me in Boston) and just took too long to figure it all out and now the event is sold out. Anyone able to do me a solid??? :-) Haviva
Second vote for adding another date to DC. It sold out so fast! Would love to go.
I see your last stop is currently Seattle! Why not hop over the border to Vancouver, we’d love to have you!!
My family loves your books, looking forward to your Toronto stop and our third book. Cannot wait for the final details.
If any of you wonderful Bostonians have extra tickets or if your plans change I would be SO grateful to buy them from you! I somehow managed not to click “purchase” for the tickets in my cart and now they are sold out. I need three but will gratefully take even one from any of you. email@example.com Thank you so much!
The South loves you and wants to meet you! Come to Alabama or Tennessee or Georgia…all places I can easily drive to! :-)
LA is more than Irvine and Pasadena…..the entire San Fernando valley is wanting you, especially out in the West valley. So near but yet so far!
Come to Houston, TX, puleeze!
Another Florida request- Tampa Bay Area! You have lots of fans here!
We sure hope you make it to Phoenix or Scottsdale!
I wanted to buy 1 or 2 of your books as a birthday present for my step daughter. I would like them inscribed Happy Birthday Jennifer….but I went to the Strand website and could not figure out how to do this. It sounded like it might be possible. Any suggestions?
Any chance you might add another event in Boston? The “Talk” portion of the event on December 8 is completely sold out, and I would so love to see you speak!
any chance we could get you to Ketchum Idaho after the Seattle book events? I work for a non-profit arts organization and wonder if there might be a way to make an event with this book tour you’ll be on?
aaahhhh!!! I went into Eventbrite the day your book tour was released and bought 2 tickets for my bestie and me to attend your talk + signing in Boston…so I thought…? I made some sort of mistake and did not actually fully purchase them, and now they are sold out! Are there any magical ways to buy 2 tickets to the talk in Boston? We CANNOT imagine missing it! (insert fingers crossed emoji)
My daughters and I would love to come to your Toronto book tour. I keep looking, but sadly there aren’t any details yet. I hope that you’ll let us know soon so we can book our tickets.
Waiting to see you in Seattle
So excited for deets for Seattle!!!! Also this came thru while I’m waiting for the apple cake to finish baking – kismet?!
Please come to Nashville! All the other people are doing it. Succumb to peer pressure! :D
After Seattle, you should pop up to Bellingham, Wa. It’s about an hour and a half north of Seattle… Small town vibe, great coffee and beer, and a fabulous independent bookstore called Village Books that would love to host you! Come see us so I can thank you in person for all the birthday cake recipes you’ve helped me make for my kids over the years ☺️
Hi, fantastic schedule! I noticed you are coming to JccSf in January and then to Santa cruz. If you have any interest, I would be happy to help your team arrange a south bay stop in between- Palo Alto or San Jose. I do some local event organizing. I’m excited about the book regardless!
I would drive 2 hours to see you in Boise!!
VEGAS! You forgot Vegas! You’re so close can’t you squeeze it in?? 🙏🏼
Please try and add Petaluma California as one of your stops. Copperfield Books hosts lots of author events in many of their 5 stores up this way
Looking forward to Seattle details!
What about Tucson?? ♥️
So excited for your next book. You signed my copies of your first two books on my birthday at Vroman’s (feels like a loooong time ago!). Safe travels on your tour.
Any thoughts on Vancouver, British Columbia? It’s only 2 hours north of Seattle? 🙏🏻
Would love to see you in orlando Florida
Sarasota? Venice? Naples?❤️❤️❤️❤️
Is Irvine sold out?
If I pre-ordered the book from a seller other than The Strand, am I still eligible to join the Nov. 9 cooking demo? So excited about this!!
Absolutely and thank you.
Oh I wish you could add Dallas on January 13 as I’ll be there. And I imagine Dallas is an easier add than Anchorage, AK! :)
How do I get tickets to the SF event?
Hello! Is there a ticket option for the SF event that doesn’t include a book? I have already preordered (yay!) and don’t need a second book.
I believe that the tickets haven’t gone on sale yet — I will update as soon as they are.
Thank you! Yes, they are on sale here: https://www.jccsf.org/event/deb-perelman-smitten-kitchen-keepers/
But you can only purchase a ticket with a book.
Come to Detroit, Michigan area!
Hi Deb. Any chance of a return to Vancouver? Maybe scoot up here after your Seattle visit?
I’m not sure why Vancouver isn’t on the schedule this time — I’ve definitely asked because I know there’s interest. Sometimes it can help for you to reach out to a store you love that hosts authors and tell them you want me to come. Stores that get a lot of requests for authors put in event requests with publishers, i.e. the process usually goes in that direction.
Will you pop up to Vancouver, BC after your Seattle stops?
I’ve now heard this is the plan — the event will be scheduled once we have Seattle sorted, so stay tuned!
Deb, if your venues in Seattle aren’t set in stone, might I suggest Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park or Brick and Mortar Books in Redmond? Two great independent bookstores in the suburbs. Looking forward to seeing you when you’re in town!
Please, please have videos for fans like me and lots others who can’t do the eveing trips (into the city) or for whatever reason.
Live and catching the sparkle is always the best.
I live closest to Theodore’s Books in Oyster Bay!
Will there be more dates offered 2023-East coast (mid Atlantic)?
Timing is so packed from Nov. -Dec with holiday things but I would love to hear and meet you!
I don’t believe more are in the works, but it can change.
When in Philly, if you have the time – you should swing by the Italian Market on South Ninth Street (open every day). There’s a great family run cookware store (established in 1906) in the middle of things [ https://www.fantes.com/ ] – but closed on Tuesdays. You might want to try an event there
And/or the Reading Terminal Market (closer to the Free Library) in center city at 10th & Filbert.
Have fun. Stay safe. Go Phils!
Come just a little north of NYC to Westchester please!
Is Irvine sold out?
Will the Powell’s Books event on Jan 24 require tickets? I am not seeing that on either your or their website.
I’m waiting to hear more and will let you know when I do.
Hi I would loooove to have you come to our neck of the woods!! Miami!!! How can we make that happen?
You should tell your favorite local bookstore, one that hosts authors, that you’d like me to come.
So happy Austin was added! Do you know when the ticket details will be updated? Can’t miss this!
I will keep asking. I will update as soon as I know. (I suspect they’re just trying to secure the right venue, and it’s taking time.)
So happy to see the Spartanburg stop! I can get there on the Greyhound!
Is the Merage JCC event on Jan 17 2023 a ticketed event? If so please let me have details
Seating for Boston Brookline Coolidge Corner event is sold out. I’m SOOOO disappointed. Any chance you can add a second night? Maybe the Somerville Theater in Davis Square?
We are hoping to add a daytime signing while I am in Boston should time permit — would that work for you?
I marked it on my calendar and will check back for details!
will you be coming to Connecticut in 2023-mid-state has some great independent bookstores and we’d love to see you!
We already booked a hotel to attend the event in Spartanburg and had seen it was a free event no ticket needed. Just checked back and see there is an optional registration with a link no longer available. Will we get in? It’s 3 hrs from where we live in Gso and would LOVE to be able to attend.
Apologies for the trouble and confusion. The library changed the info link; the new one is here. They’ve removed the optional need to register. You can simply come — looking forward to meeting you!
Deb!! Is there any way you can come to Dallas?? Tuesday? Friday? My birthday is the 16th! What a fun treat it would be! My best friend got me a signed copy of SK Every Day in Toronto and I’d love to get to meet you myself! Love, long time SK fiend, Elle
Aw, thank you! We are working on adding a Dallas event. I’ll keep you posted!
Does anyone have an extra ticket to the December 5th live event in DC that they would be willing to sell to me?
OMG! How did little Spartanburg make this list with Boston, DC, Philly?? Holy Cow! I have followed you for years and have 2 of your books. I will be there in Spartanburg on Dec 12th! Thank You!!
Since you will be in Texas in January, I’m just wondering if you would like to come in a day early or stay over a day to plan an event with us at Central Market in one of our North Texas stores. The event would be in the Dallas area. Either a demo & book signing or just a book signing, which ever you prefer.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Love to have you come to Nashville!!! So many venue options & partnering with Parnassus Books!!
You are sold out in Boulder!! Can I get on a wait list?
Reach out to the venue and see if they’re keeping a waitlist — someone always has to cancel at the last minute.
Ann Arbor, MI ~ please!!
Yes, please Ann Arbor! <3
Please come to San Diego on your book tour. We love you too…..and we are a wonderful city with fantastic cuisine….Warwick’s book store in La Jolla is the bomb. Pretty please, with sugar on top?
Are there tickets for the Portland OR event? I don’t see a link
So I don’t need a ticket for Portland??
Braised winter squash wedges from Smitten Kitchen-where to find it??
They’re in my newest book, Smitten Kitchen Keepers.
I know- but no funds to buy it yet….:) I will go to a potluck in your honor, here in Kirkland WA 12/10/2022 at 6pm, and they asked us to cook something from your book…U can be part of this event, if you want on Zoom. They will be amazed- girls here love you, immensely.
Just want to impress them with this ….Can you share, please?
Can you please come to Portland Maine?!
Ever hear of something that looks like rugelach but is yeasted and without cheese or sour cream called pudikuchen?
We put walnuts and spread home made (and usually gathered) plum pear jam on it before rolling it up, slicing it and placing on the pan to bake.
Family recipe is lost and it seems so strange I haven’t turned up anything like it elsewhere.
The dough was on the loose side and probably had eggs in it. Childhood cooking experience much repeated but it was a long time ago.
Will there be books for purchase at all events???
Hi! Will there be a book signing at the Jan 10th event?
Just found out you will be in Columbus, OH. Do you have any plans to visit Cleveland? I am hoping that Cuyahoga County Public library has booked you!
Coming for union square green market!!!
Please come to Detroit. I know, Detroit. But it’s an amazing city, and we’d love to see you in the Midwest!
I’m interested in signing up for Jan.27 Vancouver BC event- but still not seeing update with details – just want to be sure I’m not missing something- both Seattle events are sold out-
Please consider adding Phoenix to the book tour!
Any chance you’d consider Madison, Wi for a book stop. Sure it’s cold here, but we have warm hearts, warm kitchens and we love you.
How about a stop in Cleveland Ohio?!?
I’ve added Columbus in March!
Please come to the Holy City of Charleston, SC!
The food scene in this town is incredible! All the foodies would come out for you!!
March is a beautiful time of year:)
When will you release your tickets for your Vancouver stop?
They should be available ASAP, we pinged them today to remind them. (I do not sell or release tickets personally — I’m just the author!)
I’m so sorry you are not coming to Arizona. It would be a great vacation for the family. Just sayin.
Please add a stop at Mrs. Dalloway’s in Berkeley on Friday January 20th! I know it’s a night off, but I could have you to dinner or go with you to Chez Panisse and take you to visit my favorite produce market or just wait on you hand and foot! You could meet my amazing daughter who first introduced me to your blog. A visit to the east bay and Berkeley is definitely missing from your itinerary and I’d love to see that change!
Deb—will you ever be coming to AZ??!!! phoenix or Scottsdale or Flagstaff—pleeeeaaaassssee?
No Montreal for this book? It was so great to meet you at Appetite for Books in 2017!
I suspect Montreal will be booked at some other time!
Wondering if you’d consider a book tour stop in St Louis, MO….I just moved here and am impressed with their food scene! Your cookbooks are my favorite go-to’s!
Deb, wouldn’t you LOVE to travel to the southern coast of Maine just when NY is so hot you can’t stand it, say…. mid July? I’m sure there’s a bookstore or library who would love to host you.
Wow it looks amazing!
Very impressive, To start my feedback i would like to congratulate your team for giving us this source of knowledge and we are freely to connect with you too. Please have a sweet day by reading this http://www.okbetsports.ph
I just saw that you were coming to Van today to Flourist. It’s basically like my worlds colliding as I’m a NYer and huge lover of your blog and cookbooks (for YEARS) and was just pulling out the birthday cake recipe that I have used for almost every one of my son’s 12 years. Anyway, hope to make it today as Flourist is also my go to for just about everything and I’m glad you are making it there!
I was over the moon when I saw your book tour included Santa Cruz, and pounced on tickets. After all these years, I’d be seeing you in person!
Then, as the day approached, it turned out I had to be in… NYC! Missed the event.
Just wanted to add my fan girl admiration to the chorus. As I tell folks, it’s not just the food, but the WRITING that captivates me…
So disappointed that Sacramento CA did not make the cut for the book tour. There are so many enthusiastic cooks here! Hoping you will find a way to fit us in the next time you are in the northern CA area.
This looks fun but exhausting. I hope you’re home and getting some quality downtime with your fam.
We have all three of your delightful books and are loving with a “L” the slow roasted chicken with schmaltzy croutons in Keepers.
Best chicken ever and the croutons make stuffing passé.
Our deepest thanks for this wonderful recipe.

I took Keepers with me on a ski trip last week. Our condo had a “full kitchen,” in the sense of appliances and pots and pans, but not much else: salt and pepper, balsamic vinegar, a tired bottle of olive oil — full stop. I Do Not Cook on Ski Weeks beyond scrounging for a bit of breakfast before we head out. So my larder was skimpy to non-existent.
A slew of winter storms kept us off the mountain for several days and Keepers was my reading companion. Note I said “reading,” not “cooking.” What a pleasure it was to simply read your book. No little voice urging me to find something for dinner, no checking the ingredient list against my pantry stock. Just sinking into a lovely space where I felt like you were talking to me.
Toward the end of the week, I got serious, identified the first recipes I would make when we returned, and made my shopping list. Dinner tonight will be essential french onion soup. My sincere thanks for my new favorite cookbook. It’s a winner!
Don’t skip Milwaukee! We have such a beautiful city. We are home to The Spice House and Penzeys. Milk! Cheese! Beer!
Even Bruce Springsteen is coming.
More tour dates in the south! I would love to see you in Nashville. At Parnassus Bookstore, perhaps???
