Book Launch in Toronto

I'm so excited to be having a book launch at Gilead Café in Toronto, where chef Jamie Kennedy is a master at using local Ontario foods in his kitchen. We'll be joined (hopefully) by authors Gina Mallet and Gerry Shikatani, as well as west coast CBC broadcaster Don Genova, all of whom have read advance copies of the book and wrote nice endorsements for the back cover.

The MC for the evening will be my friend Marcia Young, the voice of CBC's The World This Hour.

When: Sunday, May 30, 4-6 pm.
Where: Gilead Café, 4 Gilead Place, Toronto
Bonus: Jamie Kennedy's famous french fries!

Don't you just love all the canned goods in this picture?
