Edible World: An Intimate Brunch with Chef Gabrielle Hamilton

Sponsored by First Person Arts and Philly Homegrown

Pumpkin Restaurant
Sunday, April 3rd, 11am-12:30pm

On April 3, enjoy brunch with Gabrielle Hamilton, James Beard-nominated chef at Philly’s own Pumpkin restaurant. The renowned chef and esteemed author will discuss her up-and-coming book, Blood, Bones and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef. A rare question and answer session will be held in the intimate setting, which will be Hamilton’s only Philadelphia stop on her book tour.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 23, so don’t delay!

Gabrielle Hamilton has risen from plate-scrapper to world-renowned chef and restaurateur, owning Prune in NYC and writing for esteemed publications like The New York Times and Food & Wine. Her book discusses her unique journey. As a child, she was forced to overcome the difficulties and pain divorce inflicts on children, and found herself working in a touristy restaurant in rural Pennsylvania at age 12. Now, she’s trained in food writing (M.F.A., University of Michigan) and owns the unique East Village hot-spot, Prune.

On April 3, chef and Pumpkin co-owner Ian Moroney will fashion a menu inspired by Chef Hamilton’s unpretentious culinary style. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist, Rick Nichols, will introduce Hamilton, and the inspiring journey that shaped her highly-anticipated memoir, Blood, Bones and Butter. The event is sponsored by First Person Arts and Philly Homegrown.

The book has rave reviews, from the likes of bad-boy chef and TV personality, Anthony Bourdain, who calls the book, “Magnificent. Simply the best memoir by a chef ever. Ever.” Well, there you have it—from the king of food memoir himself!
