Wednesday, November 7
I won't be back in Chicago for a few more weeks, but I thought I'd let all you bundled-up Midwesterners know about some FN stars making local appearances:
Bobby Flay shares recipes from Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Cookbook: Explosive Flavors From the Southwestern Kitchen (Clarkson Potter, $35) at 2 p.m. Thursday at Williams-Sonoma, Oakbrook Shopping Center, Oak Brook, and 7 p.m. at Borders, 830 N. Michigan.
I love that Borders. Perfect place to use the bathroom after you've tried at all the other stores on Michigan. ;-) Or just go across the street to Water Tower, but they're only on a few floors.
Nigella Lawson signs copies of her latest book Nigella Express: 130 Recipes for Good Food, Fast (Hyperion, $35) during a 3 p.m. tea Nov. 14 at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, 160 E. Pearson. The cost is $75, which includes a copy of the book. For reservations, call (312) 573-5011.
Nigella doesn't mess around. She makes you get a reservation AND pay $75 bucks just to get a book signed!
