Book Tour Update and Extra Crispy Halibut


After a lot of fun in Nashville, my next stop along the Friends at the Table tour was Philadelphia.

I had a great time making Crispy Halibut with Zucchini Ribbons and Lemon Basil Sauce as a guest on the 10! Show. They have a really nice set and live audience, which adds to the energy in the studio. The set crew helped make my job easier, getting everything organized and ready to roll; including prep for the fish dish I was about to prepare. The burner was set a little high though, which made for some interesting moments on live TV. We laughed our way through  and had fun with it.

Have a look:



From the 10! Show, I had a break before my interview on the FIT show, a WHYY radio show hosted by Lari Robling, so I headed to the Redding Terminal Market for a quick walk through and a bite to eat.

Taking the advise of a fellow food blogger, I stopped at Dinic’s and ordered the roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and roasted peppers. Let’s just say the recommendation was spot on! This sandwich was killer.  Make sure you get one of these when you visit Philadelphia. Way better than any cheese steak you will ever eat!

It was a good thing I had 8 blocks to walk to the WHYY studios, but probably not the best idea, that I did the walking in these…

You can catch my interview on FIT this Friday, 5/13 (check the WHYY website for time).

Then it was off to NYC. I had less than 24 hours in the Big Apple, and I made the most of every moment there.

What made the trip even more special was that my best friend was able to  join me on this quick visit. We had dinner at Marea, which was spectacular from start to finish. The lobster with burrata cheese, eggplant, and tomatoes was especially nice.

The next morning it was up early and over to the Sirius/XM  office for Martha Stewart radio. I was a guest on Morning Living, discussing supper clubs: who’s in one, and how do they work? We also talked about  a few of the recipes in my cookbook: Cedar Planked Salmon with Chipotle Sweet Potatoes and Portabello Mushroom Bruschetta. I will have a link to the show set up on my main website next week sometime.

Though I definitely left my heart in San Francisco when we moved away, I also left a little piece of my heart in New York on this visit. Can’t wait to go back when I have more time!
