Reading and Cream Puff Contest for Brooklyn Foodies

On Wednesday, September 9 at 7:30 pm Word in Greenpoint will host the bookstore debut event for Brooklyn writer Michelle Maisto's new book: The Gastronomy of Marriage: A Memoir of Food and Love (Random House, $15.00)

Michelle will read a little from the book, and will be joined by Ben Sargent, The Brooklyn Chowder Surfer for a conversation about food and family.

Also, Word will host a Cream Puff Contest. (One of the recipes in the book is for cream puffs and Michelle will be bringing a batch of her own.) Word is inviting guests to bring a plate of their own cream puffs, and the audience will eat and judge the winner, who will receive a prize at the end -- a copy of Michelle's book as well as some other treats from the author.

The Gastronomy of Marriage: A Memoir of Food and Love is the story of Michelle and Rich, two foodies who fall in love over cracked crabs on newspaper, stuffed zucchini flowers, and in the aisles of foreign grocery stores. As they get engaged and move in together, they know they both love to eat, and to eat together, but soon find their differences at the table are numerous . . .
