TonightAt730 front low res It’s time! After months and years of work­ing towards our goal, the cook­book, our baby, is ready to become a real­ity. The Kick­starter cam­paign has begun.  Click here! For those of you who may be new to Kick­starter (I was), it’s a “sup­port the project” sys­tem where the gen­eral pub­lic gets excited about an idea and pledges sup­port.   You can choose your level of sup­port (one book, 100 books) and then when the project is suc­cess­fully funded — we’ll give it 30 days — the book goes to print! Avery and I are incred­i­bly excited. avery me camera copy A fab­u­lous index?

How about a signed copy?  (You’ll get a dar­ling “Tonight at 7.30″ apron thrown in!) How about splurg­ing with some friends and invit­ing your­selves over for din­ner, here in Lon­don, or at Red Gate Farm?  Or hey, I’ll come to you, in New York or even in Indi­anapo­lis.
