Here’s a summary:
Books and dinner for $80, coordinated in large part by Kim Ricketts (yay)
one pot + the fortune cookie chronicles + jerry traunfeld + xuan che = sunday
jennifer 8 lee â€“ acclaimed nytimes metro reporter and author of the brand new
non-fiction thriller the fortune cookie chronicles â€“ there is much to be said
about her remarkable piece of investigative journalism and the critics sometimes
say it best.
jerry traunfeld â€“ former chef at the herbfarm and chef/owner of soon-to-open
capitol hill establishment to be called â€œpoppyâ€ â€“ I think jerry has won
every award one can foist upon a chef and there is no doubt the man deserves the
xuan che – the daughter of a chinese-american chef and a graduate of the
california culinary academy, worked with jerry in the herbfarm’s kitchen, and
now cooks at crush. xuan studied cooking in shanghai after winning the woman
chefs and restaurateur’s barabara tropp scholarship.
it should be quite an evening. expect a thoughtful menu by jerry and xuan, a signed copy of the book and at some point in the evening one pot will launch into spirited conversation with jennifer about her work. we will be tucked into a hidden but unbelievably beautiful capitol hill loft.
6:30 p.m. $80/person â€“ reservation info.
