Media events and publicity for Brigit's brand new book, The New Wine Country Cookbook: Recipes from California's Central Coast, are coming fast and furious since the official book launch in early May. Images and recipes reflect the luscious bounty and sun-kissed sensibility of California's fastest-growing wine region. This richly-illustrated book radically "ups the bar" for books about this oh-so-happening destination, and the press has taken notice.
There's a golden, carefree style that characterizes California cooking. -- Denver Examiner
The recipes reflect this feeling of blending the old and the new. They are made with fresh ingredients local to the Central Coast (which, admittedly, could fill a Whole Foods) and feel on par with the inspired dishes we'd find in any hip and trendy restaurant. But they also draw on Mediterranean culinary traditions, making them feel familiar, slightly careworn, and deeply comforting. -- TheKitchn.com
