Chris and Idie Hastings will be at the Alabama Booksmith in Homewood Wednesday to promote the new Hot and Hot Fish Club Cookbook. They're preparing finger-friendly versions of three dishes from the new cookbook:
- Apple, almond and endive salad, with creamy herb dressing
- Foie Gras with brioche bread and wild persimmon jam
- Pumpkin soup with fried sage and lemon oil
The Hot and Hot Fish Club Cookbook contains more than 200 recipes, organized to reflect the seasonal nature of local ingredients. It features profiles of dozens of purveyors who supply the restaurant with the freshest ingredients. It features more than 50 full-color photographs, lifestyle menus complete with wine and beer pairings, and a sourcing section.
The event is at 6 p.m. Wed.., Oct. 14, at The Alabama Booksmith, 2626 19th Place.
