The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.

Buy the Serious Eats Book! Preferably Now!

You too could have five books!

This is one of those posts I probably should've written ages ago, but like everything else I should've written ages ago, didn't get written ages ago.

To remind y'all, I work full time at Serious Eats and did a bit of traveling last year to do research for our book.

And that book is NOW! ... HERE! Almost. It officially comes out on November 1, aka tomorrow. That gives you about one more day to pre-order it for $17.98, if you haven't already. Why should you pre-order it? So you can get some complimentary SWAG, specifically a Serious Eats bag and a bookplate autographed by the SE peeps and HAMBONE. THE DOG. HE IS AUTOGRAPHING TOOOOOOO. (We're just giving people what they want. They want us to exploit Hambone's paw.)

Oh, I should probably also mention why you should ... order it in general. Because it's full of info about our favorite breakfasts, sandwiches, desserts, fried foods, pizza, burgers, street food, and other stuff you probably like, along with recipes from Kenji, and a crapton of full-color photos that I spent a bunch of hours editing. (Also, you support my livelihood! I like living!)

So. Please considering buying a book (or five). Thank you!

And it makes a nice part of a Christmas present too! If it comes in time for Christmas, that is. Which is what I'm hoping as I queue up for one or two. \(^_^)/

I went to Pok Pok again last night with some out-of-town visitors. It was still amazing. It also made me reminisce about your visit here all those moons ago. Come baaaack!

I came across this book at my local library the other day and sped through it. GREAT BOOK! Can't wait to try some of their recommendations in cities that I frequent.
