The measure of how much a person loves and cares for another is how far the person will expose themselves to mortal danger. I think the look on my face above says it all.
So, perhaps after a baptism by gyros, I’ll be signing copies of my book “A Culinary History of Pittsburg County” from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore located at 6100 N. May Ave. This is the last signing I have booked before the holidays. That doesn’t mean there won’t be another, but it might be.
As I’ve written before, the book focuses on how the town of Krebs became the epicenter for traditional southern Italian food before statehood, grew into a mecca for sausage, cheese, lamb fries and Choc beer more than 80 years ago and has evolved into a culinary tourist stop thanks to Pete’s Place, The Isle of Capri, Lovera’s Italian Market, GiaComo’s Italian Cuisine and Roseanna’s Italian Food.
The book also tells the story of Minnie’s Italian Dinners
Seriously, if you’re out in it on Friday, come by Barnes and Noble and say hi. Look forward to seeing you.
