In celebration of Tamara Murphy's new book, Tender: Farmers, Cooks, Eaters, Tamara along with Chris Curtis of the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance, is hosting an all-day book signing event at the newly remodeled Reading Room at the Pioneer Square Elliott Bay Cafe this Thursday from 11am to 5pm. Or join Murphy for bubbles and bites (from the cookbook, natch) from 5:30 to 8:30pm (rspv to email@example.com).
Still figuring out what to get that food-obsessed friend? Perhaps the "Local Sustainable Love Calendar" is just the thing (granted: terrible name. But it's for a good cause: proceeds benefit the Humane Society). Jerry Traunfeld, Lisa Dupar, Matt Dillon, and Ethan and Angela Stowell are among the chefs who posed with a furry loved one (there's even a rabbit!) for the calendar ($17.99). For more info, take a lookie over here.
