More details about the event:
“Bob Shacochis, author of the National Book Award–winning Easy in the Islands and the critically acclaimed novel The Woman Who Lost Her Soul, will be at Pearl Stable at 7 p.m. Monday, January 12 for an evening of food and conversation. The free event, featuring Shacochis’s book Domesticity: A Gastronomic Interpretation of Love, is sponsored by Pearl, Trinity University Press, Culinary Institute of America San Antonio, and True Flavors. Guests are invited to listen in on a lively, on-stage conversation between Shacochis and his wife (and culinary muse) Barbara Petersen moderated by Patricia Sharpe from Texas Monthly. Incredible recipes from the book prepared by CIA students and True Flavors will be available to sample.
Domesticity: A Gastronomic Interpretation of Love is an irreverent culinary memoir exploring the sweet and sour evolution of the romance between author and lover. In the now forty-year-long relationship with his wife, Shacochis stays at home and cooks, reflecting on the ups and downs of romantic partnership, the connection between heart and stomach, and how the crazed lust of youth evolves into settling down and simply making dinner.
