Food blogger Deb Perelman, author of "The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook," will be speaking and signing books at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at Raleigh's Quail Ridge Books & Music on Wade Ave.
Earlier that day, she also will be doing a 1 p.m. lunch at the Granary restaurant in Fearrington Village. For $65, diners get to meet Perelman, enjoy a three-course meal and take home an autographed copy of the book.
To make a reservation, call 919-542-3030. (At this point, they have filled the first 30 seats for the event but are considering expanding it. So I bet you can get on a waiting list if they are able to expand the lunch.)
