Bay Area foodies with a sweet tooth might want to stop by Charles Chocolates next Thursday to hear pastry chef David Lebovitz talk about his latest book. He’ll be appearing at the Emeryville chocolate company as part of a guest speaker series. Lebovitz, for those of you who aren’t familiar, worked in the pastry department of Chez Panisse for over 12 years and is the author of several books including a guide to homemade ice cream, The Perfect Scoop. It includes lots of great recipes and some amazing photography. He’s currently promoting his latest book, The Sweet Life in Paris. To make reservations go to Brown Paper Tickets—admission is free.
In the mean time, check out Lebovitz’s blog, http://www.davidlebovitz.com/. And be sure to read his post on candied bacon ice cream.
