Food Lovers’ Guide to Miami & Fort Lauderdale Book Signing at Books & Books Coral Gables

Books & Books is an independent, locally owned bookstore with three locations in Miami; Coral Gables, Bal Harbour and Miami Beach – plus stores in Grand Cayman, Westhampton Beach, Miami International Airport and the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale.

On Wednesday, January 18th, 2012 at 8:00 pm Books & Books in Coral Gables is hosting my Miami book signing, for the Food Lovers’ Guide to Miami & Fort Lauderdale.

The book is the ultimate guide to the food scene in both Miami and Fort Lauderdale by giving readers the inside scoop on the best places to find, enjoy, and celebrate local culinary offerings.

 The Food Lovers’ Guide to Miami & Fort Lauderdale (Globe Pequot Press, $14.95) is written for residents and visitors alike to find producers and purveyors of tasty local specialties, as well as a rich array of other, indispensable food-related information including: food festivals and culinary events; specialty food shops; farmers’ markets and farm stands; trendy restaurants and time-tested iconic landmarks; and a chapter of recipes from the kitchens of many talented South Florida Chefs.
