Birmingham's Best Bites Cookbook Signing at Primeaux Cheese & Vino at the Summit, December 22
Food Network Star finalist Martie Duncan, Arden Photography, and Chanda Temple will sign copies of the new Birmingham's Best Bites cookbook during a wine and cheese tasting event at Primeaux Cheese & Vino at the Summit on Monday, December 22, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Primeaux is located next to Pottery Barn Kids.
Duncan says Monday's event is not only a good time to get a copy of the book, but to also learn about which wine and cheese pairings are ideal for those last-minute holiday gatherings. Paul and Deborah Primeaux, owners of the Primeaux and Dixie Fish Co., said they are excited about the book, Monday's event and supporting the library. Book proceeds benefit the library.
"We really are proud to be a part of the Birmingham restaurant community and anything that can do to bring attention to the quality of food purveyors in the city,'' says Paul Primeaux. "I think any great city has to have a great library.''
The book, which is a Birmingham Public Library fundraiser, can be found in the following locations: the downtown library's bookstore, the Fish Market's Southside location, Bromberg's in Mountain Brook and at the Summit, Little Savannah Restaurant and Bar on Clairmont Avenue, Ashley Mac's in Inverness on Valleydale Road, and Roberts Cuisine in Titusville. The books are $25.
The book features more than 80 recipes from more than 60 restaurants in the Birmingham area. Arden Ward Upton and Mo Davis took photos for every recipe. Temple, director of public relations for the Birmingham Public Library, contributed stories for the book.
