We're thrilled to announce two special events for the writers, bloggers, restaurant entrepreneurs, and home cooks who call Columbus home. Join us in welcoming award-winning food writer and restaurateur Molly Wizenberg, the voice behind Orangette, named best food blog in the world by The London Times. Molly will read from her latest New York Times best-selling memoir, Delancey, talk about her own writing process and answer your questions about writing, blogging, and transitioning from blog to book. She'll also share her experiences starting a celebrated wood-fired pizza restaurant in Seattle.
As we talk, we'll enjoy a 3-course meal featuring recipes from Delancey prepared by Chefs Tricia Wheeler and Sarah Lagrotteria. We'll begin with dates sauteed in olive oil and a stone fruit, prosciutto, and mozzarella salad. Then we'll get our hands dirty peeling sriracha-and-butter shrimp served with a local corn and tomato salad. We'll finish with chilled peaches in wine and the perfect brownie bite.
Registration also includes a signed, hardback copy of Delancey: a Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage.
Molly Wizenberg is the voice behind Orangette, named the best food blog in the world by the London Times. Her two memoirs, A Homemade Life and Delancey, A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage, are New York Times best sellers. Her work has appeared in Bon Appétitand The Washington Post. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband Brandon and their daughter June.
When food writer Molly Wizenberg's husband decided to open a pizza restaurant, Molly was supportive—not because she wanted him to do it, but because the idea was so far-fetched that she didn't think he would. Before she knew it, he'd signed a lease on a space. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be a reality, and all of Molly's assumptions about her marriage were about to change.
