Gobsters of the world, rejoice! The Gobba Gobba Hey Cook Book, a collection of 52 recipes and stories from my first year of gobbing in San Francisco is available for purchase online and in book stores NOW! Over the next few days I’ll be updating this site with news about book signing events in the Bay Area as well as sharing some how-to-tips to help your gobs turn out perfectly every time.
For now, here are some events to put on your calendar. I hope to see you at one, or two, or even ALL of these!
Stop by Omnivore Books on Saturday, September 10th, where I’ll be signing copies of the Gobba Gobba Hey Cook Book. I will also be sharing stories from my first attempts at selling gobs on San Francisco’s streets, talking a bit about the regional significance of the gob and its role in American foodways, and of course serving gobs!
Come on over to the Haight on Tuesday, September 13th for some neighborhood-appropriate tales from my days of gobbing the streets of San Francisco! In addition to signing books, I”ll have buttons and T-shirts to give away. And, if all goes as planned, I might even have a new flavor of gob on the menu that night!
The Eat Real Festival will always hold a special place in my heart. I’d only been baking gobs for about two weeks in the Spring of 2009 when I got an email from one of the event’s organizers asking me if I might be interested in coming over to Oakland to sell gobs for a new weekend-long event celebrating “real food.” I jumped at the chance! This September will mark my third year of participation as a vendor and my first year as a panelist for LitFest! I’ll have books to sign, stories to tell, and yep, gobs to gulp!
