Hey! I’m headed to Juneau on June 21 to speak at the International Food Blogger Conference. I’m also going to teach a half-day food writing workshop with 49 Writers AND collab on dinner at In Bocca Al Lupo. Join me, Juneau friends?
For the workshop, on Sunday June 23, we’ll explore how an important recipe can lead you into your personal history. This is a no-homework writing workshop where we will sample some recipe-prompted memoir and then dive into our own. This class is open to anyone with an interest in food or writing—no previous experience in journalism or food-writing is required. Come with a meaningful recipe (original recipe card or cookbook preferred), a favorite pen, and a notebook. Space is limited. Sign up here.
Or you could just eat! I’m collaborating with the brilliant chef and one of my favorite Instagram friends, Beau Schooler, on a Sunday supper on June 23 at In Bocca Al Lupo, inspired by the themes of my forthcoming book, “The Whale and the Cupcake,” that explores how Alaskans eat. (Spoiler alert: Among the dishes he’s working up, I think we’re making Tang panna cotta with rhubarb.) Seating’s limited and it’s going to be ridiculously fun. Buy tickets here.
