In our modern age of celebrity chefs, primetime food TV and the explosion of the word “foodie” and variations therein, successful food bloggers are basically royalty.
Capitalizing on the popularity of one in particular, the National Museum of American Jewish History and Free Library are teaming up to bring Deb Perelman of the preeminent Smitten Kitchen blog here to Philadelphia.
On Wednesday, December 5 at 7:30 p.m., you can hear from and meet Deb herself when she’s interviewed at the Free Library Central Branch by Maureen Fitzgerald, food editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The event is free and open to the public, but you’ll want to make sure you arrive early as seats will be in high demand.
Need a little background on the Smitten Kitchen? The blog counts the New York Times, Martha Stewart, NPR, and Rachael Ray among its admirers and Perelman has just released a brand new cookbook of the same name.
Her philosophy is that “there are no bad cooks, just bad recipes.” For more positive aphorisms where that came from, head to 1901 Vine Street on Wednesday night, December 5.
