April Bloomfields Awesome Book Tour

default-image

April Bloomfield Goes on Tour with Her New Book, A Girl and Her Pig.

I’m not sure if April Bloomfield learned a few things about touring from the rock stars who hang out at her awesome Manhattan restaurant The Spotted Pig (you know the names: Bono, Jay-Z, the Black Keys). So when Bloomfield goes on a book tour for her excellent new cookbook, A Girl and Her Pig, she does it right.

Starting in early July in Charleston, S.C., Bloomfield will team up with excellent chefs around the country cooking meals that show off dishes from the book. As it happens, many of them are chefs she met as a 2007 F&W Best New Chef (love that!). "I'm looking forward to cooking with my friends on their home turf,” says Bloomfield. “I'm sure we'll have fun…maybe too much, if a few pints are involved."

Below are some tour highlights. And in more news from Bloomfield, she’ll be chronicling the highlights on her just-launched website, aprilbloomfield.com. But how much better if you get to be there in person.
