The CSCA Hosts Cooking Demo and Book Signing for Joe Yonan PCP '00, food editor of The Washington Post, on April 9, 2011
[March 15, 2011] As The Washington Post's "Cooking for One" columnist, Food Editor Joe Yonan knows a thing or two about the takeout doldrums and the challenges of creating practical 'serves one' dinners that meet the standards of the avid and engaged eater. His new cookbook, Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One, is packed with tasty single-serving meals that are simple to prepare, fresh, and flavorful.
Eclectic and enticing, the 100 recipes in Serve Yourself are simple, streamlined, and inspired by all parts of the globe—including Mexico, Japan, Italy, Thailand, and Joe's native Texas.
During the event, Joe will demo 2-3 recipes from Serve Yourself and discuss his food writing career. He will also answer questions from the audience as well as sign copies of his book.
Joe is a graduate of The CSCA's Professional Chef's Program. He is the former travel editor and food writer at The Boston Globe and he co-authored the cookbook The Fearless Chef with Andy Husbands, owner of Boston's Tremont 647. Joe is currently the food and travel editor at The Washington Post, where his work earned the Post the 2009 and 2010 James Beard Foundationís award for best food section.
