I forgot to mention one last detail about the book: It weighs 5.5 pounds! So you could imagine my surprise and gratitude when a reader brought 3 copies in a carry-on luggage to my second book signing.
I certainly didn’t expect that. Actually, I was worried that most of the readers wouldn’t be so willing to lug the giant. I couldn’t let anyone leave empty-handed, so I brought along a box of recipe cards. The recipe printed on them was for my (then) latest addiction: Pistachio Butter, Chocolate & Fleur de Sel Tartine.
