Last week, we told you about a very fun book promotion event that’s coming to Philly on April 3. To refresh your memory, Chef Gabrielle Hamilton, a native of the Lambertville area and the owner of NYC’s Prune Restaurant has just published a memoir called Blood, Bones and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef. Instead of hosting a traditional bookstore reading, she’s teamed up First Person Arts and Philly Homegrown to help organize a brunch, to be held at South Street’s Pumpkin Restaurant.
The first seating of the brunch sold out in just a couple of days, but Chef Hamilton agreed to add a second seating so that an additional group of readers can spend a few hours with her to talk food, restaurants and life in the Philadelphia region. The conversation will be moderated by former Philadelphia Inquirer food columnist Rick Nichols.
The $55 admission fee includes a meal prepared by Pumpkin’s Chef Ian Moroney and beer from New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewing Company. The second seating runs from 1:30 – 3 p.m. and is expected to sell out as well. If you’re interested in attending this event, get your tickets today!
