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.
Cowvin cookies by Sticky Fingers Bakery are a sign of a really good day at my house. Doron Petersan shares her secrets in her new book, Sticky Fingers’ Sweets:100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes on Saturday, September 29 at 5 pm.
I love trying out new spices. My latest find is cinnamon bark from India, which can be used in everything from tea to rice dishes. Jeffrey Saad brings the world to your kitchen is his new book, Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders on Sunday, September 30 at 4 pm.
Fall is the perfect season for baking, and the Baked series of books by Baked NYC is one of my favorite places to find new pastry recipes. Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito keep it simple in their latest, Baked Elements: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients on Sunday, September 30 at 5 pm.
Come check out the many top chefs, cooking demonstrations, and so much more this year at the Baltimore Book Festival. Happy cooking!
