    Brooklyn Book Festival Food Panel

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | September 14, 2009

    Brooklyn Book Festival Food Panel on Sept. 13 2009.

    I did a panel at the Brooklyn Book Festival, which was this huge expansive, elaborate event.

    I got to speak with Mark Kurlansky, author of “Salt: A World History,” a book that I used in doing research for my book.

    Here is the description:

    Three writers discuss the past, present and future of what we eat. Featuring Mark Kurlansky (editor, The Food of a Younger Land), Jennifer 8. Lee (The Fortune Cookie Chronicles) and Liz Thorpe (The Cheese Chronicles). Moderated by “Serious Eats” blogger Ed Levine.

    We had a huge crowd, well over 100 people (Food is an attractive topic). And it wasn’t raining. The photo from the satage is above. They stood and were on the floor. A lot of old friends showed up to say hi. Housing Works, which was handling sales of my book, sold out — which was a bit of a surprise.
