Tonight, six of our finest local food writers will jaw up a storm on their favorite subject. Really, this one’s gonna be tasty.
What We Talk About When We Talk About Food is the name of the gathering, a conversation to be held at 6pm at Palace Ballroom, the party adjunct of Palace Kitchen. Tickets are $25 a pop, which include Tom Douglas nibbles plus a cocktail. There’ll be a cash bar.
Besides all that…why go? Because here’s who’s dishin’: Shauna Ahern, the Gluten-Free Girl herself; Matthew Amster-Burton, Seattle Times contributor and author of Hungry Monkey: A Food Loving Father’s Quest to Raise an Adventurous Eater; Kathleen Flinn, author of The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry; Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life and recently coronated Best Food Blogger in the World for her sensational Orangette; Erica Bauermeister, author of The School of Essential Ingredients; and Maggie Savarino Dutton, Seattle Weekly booze maven extraordinaire.
They’re real. They’re funny. (I know: I’ve worked with some of them, respect all of them—even helped vet early drafts for one of them, the lovely Kat Flinn, whose misadventures at Le Cordon Bleu make for some wicked fun reading.)
Together, they make a formidable team, and remind this restaurant critic what extraordinary depth we have in this town among those who eat and write.
