The first time I went to the Baltimore Book Festival I had a crab taco. It was love at first bite, and I’ve been back every year since. This year I’m looking forward to helping at the library’s tent, but the events I’m craving are at the Food For Thought Stage. Recently, I learned about the glorious 00 flour, so I’m especially excited to hear Aliza Green talk about her book, Making Artisan Pasta on Saturday, September 29 at 3 pm.

Oh this is making me hungry! I just tried my first crabcake taco last night from the Gypsy Queen Cafe food truck after the Baltimore Bike Party, it was so good. I wish I had more time for the Book Festival, but the Pratt Technology tent and everything else seems great this year; quite a lineup.
