Austin was recently spotlighted in Bon Appetit's list of 'The 20 Most Important Restaurants in America' as the home of two top contenders. Franklin Barbecue went from a trailer in an East Austin parking lot in 2009 all the way to number 17 on the list, while Tyson Cole's fine Japanese dining at Uchi and Uchiko broke into the top half at number ten.
But for the true foodie, kitchen love doesn't end with a dinner out. BookPeople satisfies the cravings of Austin readers looking for great new literature from local and national authors. But the North Lamar bookstore can also cultivate culinary cravings when they host author events with a gourmet twist.
In the next few weeks, the store will be serving up three events for all kinds of eaters:
This weekend, Sara Lundberg guides you through the grocery store to find the best deals without drowning in a sea of coupons.
Next week, Chloe Coscarelli of 'Cupcake Wars' fame brings the battle-tested vegan dessert recipes of her new cookbook.
Later in March, Crystal Esquivel brings signature recipes from the city's top restaurants and chefs that you can make in your own kitchen.
For more information on each of these events, click on the 'View the list' button below. Whether you are on a budget, have a restricted diet, or just want to try the best of what Austin chefs have to offer at home, you can find something delicious at BookPeople this March.
