Barnes &Noble Book Signing Mandeville, Louisiana

I had a blast at my book signing today! I met some really cool people and signed some copies on this rainy day. I met a Peruvian personal chef and she really got me thinking about opening my personal chef business here in Louisiana. I love to come in a home or business and cook for people. I love that moment when my clients taste my food and I see the look on their faces. Priceless!!! Now that I have published my first cookbook, I am really thinking about what 2014 will look like. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to scheduling more book signings at other Barnes & Nobles throughout Louisiana, New York and Chicago and bringing Latino Who Dat Nation in 2014 to a city near you!

It’s official my cookbook is now part of the University of Toronto library!!!

My beloved University of Toronto Museum Studies professor Cheryl Meszaros I hope is smiling from heaven! I dedicated my book New Orleans con Sabor Latino: The History and Passion of Latino Cooking to her. She died of cancer during my second year of graduate school. She encouraged me to write this book and do my internship at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum. It was so painful to return to campus after our summer internship and to lose her before we graduated. Thank you University of Toronto Faculty of Information Studies for sending me a picture of you all holding the book before my book is officially part of the library! Muchas Gracias Adriani y Alfredo!! R.I.P. Cheryl Meszaros!!!
