What We Talk About When We Talk About Food

Pleasure. Sustenance. Family. Culture. Science. These are just some of the topics to be addressed at tonight’s roundtable discussion, “What We Talk About When We Talk About Food.” Hear what it means to a troupe of Seattle authors—all with new books out—to think and write about cuisine. Perhaps the biggest name on the bill is Ethan Stowell (Ethan Stowell’s New Italian Kitchen), the chef and owner of four highly rated restaurants including How to Cook a Wolf. You’ll also hear from the creators of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef (Shauna and Danny Ahern), as well as Greg Atkinson (Northwest Essentials) and Kim O’Donnel (The Meatlover’s Meatless Cookbook). These professional gourmands will gather for a casual discussion, with wine and apps. Ask them anything you like. Even the moderator, Amy Pennington, has a book out, Urban Pantry, where she talks about that hot new old-fashioned fad, canning. ADRIANA GRANT
