What do all of these things have in common? They will help me, and A Taste of Paris, welcome spring.
I’m thrilled to bring you two OUSTANDING original events, you will only find here!
I’ve partnered with Janice MacLeod, New York Times bestselling author, to bring you Cooking and Book Chat, an event like no other.
We’ll connect via zoom where we will prepare some of Janice’s favorite Parisian dishes as she entertains us with stories of her adventures in Paris and tells us about her new book.
Janice’s book, Paris Letters, is indeed a New York Times bestseller.
A Paris Year, who’s permanent home at my house, is on the coffee table, will take your breath away. And we’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Janice’s new book, Dear Paris, for sometime.

Join Cedar Stoltenow, and I for a food and wine event featuring the gorgeous region of Piedmont, Italy. Located in the northwestern part of the country, it’s surrounded by the Alps, providing a cool climate to grow well-balanced, age worthy, and very food friendly wines.
Piemontese wine culture is reminiscent of Burgundy, France, because of the intertwining of food and wine in the region, and the long ageing potential of its red wines.
Together we will explore 4-5 wines from the area, learning about the different grapes and wine styles of the region, alongside traditional pairings.
