Dana Cowin, author of Mastering My Mistakes in the Kitchen, will be the Darien Library’s featured speaker Tuesday, November 11th at 7 p.m.
An uproarious, inspiring cookbook from the longtime editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine, in which the first lady of food spills the secret of her culinary ineptitude, while learning—finally—to cook, side-by-side with some of the greatest chefs working today, from David Chang to Alice Waters to Thomas Keller.
Dana Cowin, Food & Wine’s Editor-in-Chief since 1995, has been covering the world of food, wine, style, and design for over 30 years. She sits on the board of directors of City Harvest, a New York City hunger-relief organization, Wholesome Wave Foundation, dedicated to providing access to sustainable foods, and Hot Bread Kitchen, an organization that helps train low-income men and women to join the culinary workforce. In 2012, she was an inductee into the James Beard Foundation Who’s Who in Food & Beverage in America.
Books will be available for purchase at this event. Refreshments will be served.
