The Food Book Fair takes place in Brooklyn, NY this weekend and serves to “celebrate the intersections of food, culture and food systems and the writing that brings them to life.” For the fourth consecutive year, the FBF will be hosted at the Wyeth Hotel.
This Williamsburg event has an exciting line up of participants including: Christine Muhlke of Bon Appétit, as well as The Spotted Pig’s April Bloomfield, Dirt Candy’s Amanda Cohen, Per Se’s Brooks Headley, and many others.
There will be panel discussions such as Passion To Profits: Stories Of Women Who Made Food Their Business, curated by Rodale Books and the Toklas Society. Mimi Sheraton, food journalist, and first female restaurant critic for the New York Times, will also talk about her new book: 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die. And MOFAD’s Dave Arnold will moderate What’s In A Name? Rethinking Food Labeling.
Additionally, food magazine enthusiasts will be excited by Foodieodicals on Saturday the 11th, which celebrates voices in food publishing, from vegan quarterly Chickpea Magazineto David Chang’s Lucky Peach.
Kitchen Arts & Letters, who stocks several of the cookbooks I’ve shot, will also have a pop up for the duration of the event selling some of this year’s most notable cookbooks, memoirs, and journals. A nice perk will be that many of the authors will be on hand for signings.
And, since this is a culinary festival, after all, there will be plenty of food to try—including San Francisco’s famed Bar Tartine (a SF local favorite which I just shot last year).
