BINDERY: POSTPONED: A Night with Jessica Battilana and Maggie Hoffman

Friday, June 8, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

The Bindery hosts a special evening celebrating new books by Jessica Battilana (Repertoire: All the Recipes You Need) and Maggie Hoffman (The One-Bottle Cocktail: More than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit). A collaboration with Alembic, this is a ticketed event that includes bites from Repertoire and a drink or two from The One-Bottle Cocktail. Both authors will be on hand to present recipes from their books.

Please note: this event has been postponed until further notice. We hope to reschedule and, should that be a possibility, we will re-post with more information here. Thank you, and apologies for any inconvenience!


About Repertoire:

Simple, stunning recipes for home cooks, from the writer of the "Repertoire" column in the San Francisco Chronicle.


Home cooks don't need dozens of cookbooks or hundreds of recipes. They just need one good book, with about 75 trustworthy, versatile, and above all delicious recipes that can stand alone or be mixed-and-matched into extraordinary meals. That's what Repertoire is: Real recipes, from real life, that really work. After nearly two decades in the kitchen and writing about food, this is the way Jessica Battilana really cooks at home. These are her best recipes, the ones she relies on the most -- for a quick weeknight supper, a special dinner party, when a friend drops by for a drink and a snack, for the chocolate cake that never fails. The knowledge, freedom, and flexibility that comes from cooking these recipes is all you really need in the kitchen. With a salad for every season, pantry pastas, many meatballs, chewy cookies, and more, Repertoire puts the perfect dish for every occasion within reach.


Jessica Battilana writes the "Repertoire" column for the San Francisco Chronicle and is the author of Corn, from Short Stack Editions. The coauthor of several other cookbooks, her work has appeared in Martha Stewart Living, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal,Gastronomica,Saveur, Sunset, and multiple editions of The Best Food Writing. A Vermont native, she lives in San Francisco with her wife and children.





About The One-Bottle Cocktail:

A collection of more than 80 wonderfully creative, fresh, and delicious cocktails that only require a bottle of your favorite spirit, plus fresh ingredients you can easily find at the market.


In The One-Bottle Cocktail, Maggie Hoffman brings fancy drinking to the masses by making cocktails approachable enough for those with a tiny home bar. Conversational and authoritative, this book puts simple, delicious, and inventive drinks into your hands wherever you are, with ingredients you can easily source and no more than one spirit. Organized by spirit--vodka, gin, agave, rum, brandy, and whiskey--each chapter offers fresh, eye-opening cocktails like the Garden Gnome (vodka, green tomato, basil, and lime), Night of the Hunter (gin, figs, thyme, and grapefruit soda), and the Bluest Chai (rye whiskey, chai tea, and balsamic vinegar). These recipes won't break the bank, won't require an emergency run to the liquor store, and (best of all!) will delight cocktail lovers of all stripes.


Maggie Hoffman writes about cocktails, wine, and beer for the James Beard Award-winning website Serious Eats, where she founded the drinks section in 2011 and served as managing editor. Hoffman has written for Wine Enthusiast, the San Francisco Chronicle, and San Francisco Magazine, as well as the websites of Saveur, Food & Wine, and others. She lives in San Francisco with her husband, daughter, and more than a few bottles of booze.
