Sizzlin' in Hell's Kitchen
Hell’s Kitchen, a restaurant-studded section of Eighth, Ninth and 10th Avenues in Manhattan, is home to all 38 dining establishments featuring 27 different cuisines that make up the grand mosaic of Carliss Pond’s newly published cookbook, Sizzle in Hell’s Kitchen.
Feasting on a delightful buffet of Puerto Rican specialties, several of which are included in the book, and a little Sangria, Pond will take the gathering behind the scenes of the restaurants whose recipes appear in the book, including such legendary dining establishments as Barbetta, Chez Josephine and The Landmark Tavern. Juicy stories abound in the book and Carliss has the knowledge to confirm or deny them. Pond also will discuss the whole process of writing a cookbook AND the agonies of getting it published.
Copies of the book will be available for sale ($30 cash payment at the event) and will be personally signed by the author.
