I’m moderating an online webinar on the new Slow Food book, Ark of Taste, with authors David S. Shields and Giselle Kennedy Lord. For information and registration click here. It’s at 4:00 p.m. EST.
Weekend reading: a catering memoir
Carol Durst-Wertheim. Vignettes & Vinaigrettes: A Memoir of Catering before Food was Hot. Full Court Press, 2020.
I did a blurb for this one:
In one entertaining anecdote after another, Durst-Wertheim gives us the dirt on what it was really like to be a woman running a catering business in New York City at the end of the 20th Century. Her warm-hearted stories are tough, dishy, and poignant, and tell it like it was and, no doubt, still is.
