Live to Cook

 

How cute does Symon look in this pic?  I gotta embarrass him a little you know:)

From Guest Blogger/Chef Michael Symon:

 

So after a crazy couple days at the SOBE wine and food festival I am back in Ctown and ready to roll.

The event was absolutely amazing.  We did the Best of the Best party for 2500 ppl with some of the countries greatest chefs including Paul Kahan, Jonathan Waxman, Nate Appleman, Rick Tramanto, Michael Mina & Morimoto..just to name a few.  I also did two sold out demos to great crowds that where having a blast to say the least.  This event is one of the greatest parties on earth and i highly recommend attending if you haven't already.  Lee really knows how to give the people the perfect balance of food, wine, entertainment and education and my hat goes off to the entire SOBE team.

Upon returning I found out that my book, Live to Cook just went on presale on Amazon.  This book has been well over a year in the making and has been one of the toughest and most enjoyable projects of my life.  It will have stories and recipes from my childhood until now and to say I am proud of it would be a vast understatement.  I really need to thank Michael and Donna Ruhlman for making the process enjoyable and Rica for pushing us to do such a great book...You can presale order it HERE.

As a friend and reader of Chef's Widow I have offered up a copy for a giveaway when it comes out.  So keep reading and keep your eye out  for the release of Live to Cook:Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen .
