Top Chef Masters judge and Saveur editor James Oseland has got a new book out for this holiday season. It’s called The Way We Cook, and it’s a culinary tour of world cuisines featuring fifty recipes combined with photos and stories accompanying each one. For example: A food hawker in Muang Sing, Laos who spends the early hours of the morning preparing khao soi, rice noodle soup garnished with pork and blanched greens; or a Sicilian matriarch preparing Easter dinner for her family in Ragusa. On his book tour, Oseland — who’s a Bay Area native — will be popping up at a few events next week, starting on November 9 at the San Francisco Cooking School, where he’ll be in conversation with food writer Tori Ritchie.
That event goes from 7 to 9 p.m., and you can purchase tickets here. He’ll be signing books too, and those can be purchased separately.
Then on Saturday, November 10, he’ll be doing a luncheon and talk at Camino in Oakland, which will be cohosted by Omnivore Books. That event is $50, including wine, and chef Russell Moore will be preparing dishes inspired by the book. Get tickets here.
And on November 11, Oseland will be at Book Passage at the Ferry Building at 1 p.m. signing books.
