Event Details
Noted food editor and publisher releases a book that cherishes cooking and is infused with wisdom from friends and mentors.

For Dorothy Kalins, Founding Editor of Savuer magazine, a lifetime of exposure to incredible cooks and chefs means that she can’t enter her kitchen without hearing the voices of mentors and friends with whom she cooked with over the years.

Her latest book, The Kitchen Whisperers, cherishes the food mentors in our lives. Woven through the text are dozens of narrative recipes, from her mother’s meat loaf to David Tanis’s Swiss Chard Gratin.

Join her in conversation with AJU’s Catherine Schneider to discuss stories and tips from Dorothy’s notable connections, and inspire your own creative food journey.
