When: Mon., Dec. 11, 5-7 p.m. 2017
Join an informal meet-and-greet with Stella Parks. We rarely do evening events in December, but when we were offered a chance to play host to this award-winning pastry chef, well, we couldn't resist. And there will be treats from her cookbook, "BraveTart." Please help us give her a warm welcome and come celebrate the holidays with us. Trained pastry nerd, prodigal food writer and resident pastry wizard at Serious Eats. Once upon a time, Stella cashed out her life savings to attend language school in Tokyo so she could read the secret menu at her favorite sushi joint. Later, Food & Wine cited that compulsive dedication in naming her one of America’s best new pastry chefs. When not in the kitchen, Stella spends most of her time polishing "Star Trek" quotes, playing video games and celebrating the arrival of her first cookbook, "BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts," available now.
