More June 2017 Los Angeles Food Events and Festivals

This week, two friends have their books coming out, and they’re throwing parties–shh, one of them is a secret!

Nguyen Tran of Starry Kitchen has their Adventures in Starry Kitchen book coming out today!  If you go to, you can find links to order.  Also keep an eye out on their website, Facebook, and other social media for some special events later this week!

Bill Esparza of Tacolandia fame (see last post) has his book, L.A. Mexicano, coming out this week too, and he’s got a talk and book signing, at Vroman’s in Pasadena.  $35 gets you entry to the event, a copy of the book, and food from two of my favorite chefs–Gilberto Cetina Jr. (Chichen Itza, Holbox) and Eddie Ruiz (Public Wine & Beer).  That’s a pretty darn good deal!
