Book signing at Book Larder and Foodportunity in Seattle, Oct. 22 & 24

I just returned from New York City where

… I taught a food styling and photography workshop,

… hosted a Sunday Suppers,

… pretaped an interview with Michael Harlan Turkell for Heritage Radio,

… spoke with Sophie Herbert on Martha Radio, and

… had an amazing small gathering at the Martha Stewart offices to celebrate the release of my book and my story in Whole Living.

I had to pinch myself several times. I would have never expected any of this to happen five years ago when I started blogging. It was very special.

Official publication date for “Small Plates and Sweet Treats” is a week away and I am beginning to schedule some events.

For those of you in the Seattle area, I wanted to let you know that I will be at Foodportunity on Monday, October 22nd from 6-9pm. It is an event with local chefs and authors and I will be there to present my book and mingle. You can purchase tickets here.

I will also have a book signing at one of my favorite Seattle spots, Book Larder on Wednesday, October 24th from 6:30-8pm. This event is free for all and open to everyone.

Oh and just to remind you, I will be at Anthropologie in West Palm Beach this Wednesday, October 18th from 6-8pm.

If you are in the area, I hope you can stop by to say hello!

Note: I announced the names of the 25 winners of the Bob’s Red Mill flour giveaway. Please check that post’s comment section for the complete list. Thank you!

    Just received your book in the post and I am very happy about owning a copy. I have been av fan of yours for a long time now. I did also get one copy for a give-away on my blog. And therefore i wonder about using a few of your pictures from the book/blog to promote the give-away on my blog. I will of course refere to you as the photographer and link to your blog.

    Looking forwood to your answer

    Hi Aran,

    I had such a lovely time at the Book Larder last night. I did a short post about it on my blog if you would like to read it:

    Also, I had your autumn brussels sprouts salad for lunch today (delicious!) and just took a loaf of the seeded bread out of the oven. Can’t wait to try it! Hope you had a nice few days in Seattle and that you make it back here soon!



  31. Wow… great photography and congratulations on the Book! Keep it up!
