Bobby Flay’s, New Book

New Cook Book “Bobby at Home.”   What a great influencer! It was wonderful to meet Bobby Flay at his latest book signing in Fairfax Virginia, at  William Sonoma where he introduced his new book, “Bobby At Home.” It was a special but brief moment with a food industry icon. There were many people waiting in line to receive a signed book by the famous Flay. We want Bobby, we want Bobby were the chants of the crowd, which were made up of his most devoted fans. His fans were very excited and pleased to receive their autographed book. His book includes some very delightful recipes.  Recipes any Bobby Flay aficionado would love. His books are now available for sale at any Barnes and Noble book store. Sheila Inman    

Cathy Barrow

In Conversation With Cathy Barrow   Cathy Barrow, a food writer, cooking teacher and pie maker  was wonderful to interview. Barrow writes a column in the Washington Post’s Food section, called “Bring It.” She has written for the New York Times, Garden and Gun, The Local Palate, Modern Farmer, Saveur, Southern Living, NPR, National Geographic, and other publications. Her first cookbook, Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Practical Pantry, won the prestigious IACP Award. She gave great advice about pitching recipe ideas to publishers. She spoke about the importance of pitching to food editors.  She gave practical tips to those interested in pitching to publishers. The pitch must sing, and be no more than 200 words. It is important to get to the point. Be sure to include a link to previous works and an end date to answer by. Most importantly. She spoke about valuing your work, which meant not working for free!
