|Signed: For Beth, (candy)|
Liz from Liddabit Sweets got excited to talk about her new book, due out in October, over Ricotta caramels. Tartine Bakery from San Francisco came to sample granola and brownies on the East Coast. Maira Kalman signed a copy of the Michael Pollan FOOD RULES book for me. Her illustrations are glorious and even the endpages come alive with the first crack of the book. The pictures were possibly meant to be a deterent to "bad food" but with her gouache paint she makes sugary grape soda and Hostess Cupcakes look whimsically delicious. I purchased a German egg slicer from her and expressed my deepest love for her artwork.

Should you find yourself at Chelsea Market this weekend, have a stroll and enjoy the fare!
