Whole World Vegetarian
The pub date is May 10th and with one look at the fresh bright design and all the great recipes
you'll understand my enthusiasm for this project. This cookbook is a nostalgic roam through my world travels, meals with cooks I met on the road and on the street, adventures in dining, and never a dull palate. Come join me as I travel through the Whole World of Vegetarian Cooking.

The Oregon Honey Festival will take place over two days this summer: August 20-21. There will be a new venue to be announced.

The last two years its been my pleasure to sign copies of my book, Taste of Honey to present formal varietal tastings of different honey varietals.

This is an ongoing learning experience as I travel, gather different varietals from around the world, taste and compare. While on Oahu recently I bought some dark beautiful darkly colored and highly flavored honey bees had gathered from the nectar from macadamia nut trees. And a friend has sourced an exquisite honey from France gathered by honey bees from the blossoms of chestnut trees, a truly unusual taste experience. It is a honey that has slightly bitter notes and goes well with salty big flavored cheese such a salty blue or a ripe runny cheese with blue mold. Interesting.
