New York Event at Baked!
I'm gearing up for an exciting trip to New York in just a couple of weeks, and I just can't wait. In addition to eating all the pastries on the island of Manhattan, I'm looking forward to a couple of TV appearances, some meetings, uninterrupted sleep, and the most thrilling bit of all: a chance to party with some of you!
I'm sure you all know about the genius that is Baked bakery--first the location in Brooklyn, then numerous awesome cookbooks, insane merchandising, and now a second, gorgeous location in Tribeca. Over the years, I've been lucky enough to go from Baked fangirl to actual friends of Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito (though I'm still an ardent fangirl). I might have teared up when Matt offered their Tribeca space for an event for Real Sweet. I mean, it's not everyday you get to celebrate a book you wrote in the bakery owned by people who endlessly inspire you to do things like write cookbooks in the first place. Good grief.
So all gushing aside, if you'll be in New York the first week of June, I'd absolutely LOVE for you to use my book event as an excuse to hang out at Baked bakery, sample treats from the book and ones from the Baked pastry case, enjoy a glass of wine, and say hello!
You can RSVP for the event via Brown Paper Tickets, and even purchase a copy of the book through the link, if you haven't already. Hope to see you there!
