Modern Potluck launch party at Powerhouse Arena

It’s been a whirlwind two weeks. Modern Potluck launched July 26 with an actual potluck and a brief talk held at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn (above). Soon after, I did signings in Philadelphia and Stockton, NJ, and led a cooking class about potluck dishes at The Farm Cooking School.

This week, I’m in Seattle for a mix of work and fun. On Wednesday, I’m giving an author talk at the beloved cookbook shop, Book Larder. If you live locally, I would love to see you there!

These past few weeks have brought some incredible press for the book. picked up the cheesecake bars, which are made with a buckwheat-almond crust.

I also wrote a piece wondering whether potlucks could save the world. I’d love to think they could!
