      Tasty Books: Japanese Farm Food

      The guest of honor is IACP award–nominated author Nancy Singleton Hachisu, whose book, Japanese Farm Food, was released in 2012 by Andrews McMeel and has already gone into the fifth printing. Hachisu lives with her Japanese husband on an organic farm two hours outside of Tokyo.

      This event pairs the cookbook with a prix-fixe dinner, allowing attendees to sample what they might eventually cook at home from the beautifully photographed, easy accessible recipes. The meal, prepared by Chef Patrick Mulvaney, will include passed appetizers and a four-course, all-you-can-eat, family-style dinner based on the book

      Ingredients will be sourced not only from local farms, but from local producers such as Massa Organics in Chico. Oakland’s Kitazawa Seed Company, specializing in Japanese produce, will provide copies of their latest catalog and sample seed packets for attendees. 

      All ticket buyers will receive a signed copy of the $35 cookbook in addition to dinner.


      6 p.m. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres

      7 p.m. Author talk and dinner

      Note: There will be a cash bar or you can BYOB. Additional books will be available for sale for $35 and signing by the author. Ticket price includes gratuity and taxes.
