Sonoko Sakai September 2016 Workshops

Posted on August 30, 2016 at 1:40 AM

I have been touring up and down the West coast to promote my new cookbook RICE CRAFT, which was released this summer from Chronicle Books. Rice Craft made Amazon’s Best Book of the Month in July 2016. This week, I find myself in Seattle where I will be teaching Rice Craft at The Pantry from August 24-28. , While the book tour has kept me very busy during these last two months, I took a weekend break to visit Vancouver. Binah, my daughter-in-law’s parents Laura and Alfred showed me around the city. The highlights were visiting the oldest Farmers Market in Trout Lake and climbing the Grouse Grind - a challenging rugged train. I underestimated the difficulty of this hike and felt rather dizzy when finished, but finished indeed. I will continue to promote my new cookbook in September with workshops and book events in Los Angeles.

Here is a list of upcoming events in Los Angeles:
