It wouldn’t be Spring in Los Angeles without the L.A. Times Festival of Books. And it certainly wouldn’t be aÂ book festival without cookbooks.Â Held in Westwood PlazaÂ behind the Wooden CenterÂ on the UCLA campus, the cooking stage will feature author-chefs in demonstrations throughout both days of the festival. Included in the schedule are Los Angeles contributorsÂ to the Top Chef Quickfire Cookbook like Betty Fraser (Grub) and Stefan Richter (L.A. Farm) as well as Mark Peel (Campanile) - whoÂ is actually aÂ Top Chef Masters alumni but recently came out with a cookbook entitled,Â ”New Classic Family Dinners.” Peep below for the full cooking stage schedule:
Saturday, April 24 11Â AM - Lisa Lillien, Hungry Girl 1-2-3 12:30Â PM - Chris â€˜CJâ€™ Jacobson, Stefan Richter, Betty Fraser & Antonia Lofaso, Top Chef Quickfire Cookbook 2Â PM - Dave Martin, Flavor Quest 3:30Â PM - Alicia Silverstone, The Kind Diet Sunday, April 25 11Â AM - Alice Waters, In the Green Kitchen 12:30Â PM - Anne Byrn, The Cake Mix Doctor Returns 2 PMÂ - Tricia Yearwood, Home Cooking with Tricia Yearwood 3:30Â PM - Mark Peel, New Classic Family Dinners
Great way to get up close and in-the-flesh with your favorite chefs - or vegan actress-turned-chef, whichever you prefer. Either way, the Festival of Books is well worth a visit this weekend.
