Chefs Daniel Patterson and Gabrielle Hamilton are known and respected both for their original writing and exceptional restaurants.
Join them for a conversation on these two worlds in celebration of Patterson’s highly anticipated new book, Coi: Stories and Recipes, a personal account of his award-winning two Michelin starred restaurant in San Francisco and his own unique philosophy about food and cooking. Hamilton, chef/owner of the East Village restaurant PRUNE, is the author of The New York Times bestseller and James Beard Foundation award-winning memoir Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef.
Coi and Blood, Bones & Butter will be for sale at the event, with book signing to follow.
