Clementine Cocktails & Book Launch Parties!

The past 2 weeks we have been celebrating with book launch parties on both coasts for The Forest Feast Gatherings! A week before the book came out, I hosted a preview party at the cabin for a small group. Then Jonathan, Ezra and I went to NYC last week for launch events at Paper Source in Manhattan and PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn. Just this past weekend, the gift shop Emily Joubert Home & Garden (above) in Woodside, CA (where I live) hosted a big party for which I made appetizers for 100 (!), cocktails were provided by Women & Whiskies, and we sold out of books completely! Thank you so much to the friends, family and readers that came out on both coasts to support me, I am so grateful!

 Jonathan interviewed me at the event at Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Ezra "helped" me sign books.

 At Paper Source in Manhattan we did a watercolor crafting DIY from the book and I made lots of treats (like Strawberry Caprese Bites from the book) to nosh on at the signing.

A few more pics from the event in Woodside at Emily Joubert, the prettiest home and garden shop near where I live. If you're in the area, is so worth a visit!

Women & Whiskies was kind enough to provide whiskey for the cocktails, like this Clementine Cocktail from the book. To serve such a big crowd, I turned it into a punch, and we made pitchers of it. People loved it!

Stay tuned for more book events around the SF Bay Area throughout the fall (there will be several! I'll post them on the cookbook tab above). 

Cheers to many more gatherings!
