Caffe Vita hosts James Beard Award Winning Author Jennifer Mclagan

| November 18, 2008


one pot + fat + jennifer mclagan + caffe vita = november 20th. 



james beard award winning author jennifer mclagan will be joining us with her new book FAT an appreciation of the misunderstood ingredient on the 20th – her book begins “for all of history, minus the last thirty years, fat has been at the center of human diets.” and through the rest of her lush book jennifer makes a powerful sensual and scholarly argument for the reification of FAT.

the ever-talent scott emerick of cremant will be cooking beautiful fat-centric food – this will be held in caffe vita’s beautiful private loft – wood fired oven, gorgeous capitol hill location, cozy and lush. bring your own wine – leave with a copy of the book FAT (included in the price) and spend the evening in discussion with Jennifer – Stranger contributor Angela Garbes is going to be sitting down to pepper the author with question and question. (and we owe this delightful event to kim ricketts…)
