The University of North Carolina Press has released the latest volumes in its Savor the South series of single subject cookbooks: “Peaches” by Chapel Hill author Kelly Alexander and “Tomatoes,” by food writer Miriam Rubin. The authors are doing a series of book events this weekend. Here’s the schedule:
- 1 p.m. Saturday. Rubin, a trained chef and free-lance food writer whose work often appears in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will teach a cooking class at Southern Season in Chapel Hill. The menu includes stand-over-the-sink tomato sandwiches with olive oil bread; tomato-watermelon salad with feta and oregano; green tomato and pork tenderloin biscuit pie; sungold tomato sauce on whole wheat pasta; and finally, ginger tomatoes. The class costs $40. To reserve a space, call 919-929-7133 or go to southernseason.com.
- 10 a.m. Sunday, Rubin will have a book event at La Farm Bakery, 4248 NW Cary Pkwy., Cary.
- 3 p.m. Sunday, Rubin and Alexander will have a book event at Quail Ridge Books, 3522 Wade Ave., Raleigh.
- 7 p.m. Sunday, Rubin and Alexander will have a book event at Crook’s Corner restaurant, 610 W. Franklin St., Chapel Hill.
