The Great Gathering of Chefs
Alan "Battman" Batt is well known photographer whose stunning "food porn" photos are back again-this time in the form of soup. His last book featured sandwiches from well known NYC chefs including Nobu Matsuhisa, Wylie Dufresene,and of course, my favorite Jean Georges. His two newest books: The Colors of Dessert and Soup will be debuting at a charity event this September. The Great Gathering of Chefs benefiting the Children's Storefront , a tuition free school in Harlem. Of course I am 100% behind this event as it supports chefs and children, my two favorite things. Erik will be there signing the first 100 Soup books. His pea soup, which is now served at Jean Georges, will be featured.
The event will feature a "meet the chefs" portion for both the soup and dessert book. There will be over 125 chefs signing books followed by a tasting. The tasting only is $100 and the tasting plus the book signing and a book is $250. Save 10% if you order before August 1st.
