Join us for an in-person visit at Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks to join Bonnie Slotnick for an evening at her cookbook shop located in the East Village, which specializes in out-of-print and antiquarian cookbooks and ephemera. Attendees will look at the fascinating variety of things found in the pages of old cookbooks and discuss whether they should stay with the books or be archived elsewhere. Attendees will also examine some manuscript cookbooks from different eras—the only cookbooks that can rightfully be called “unique.” Delicious appetizers and wine will be served at the end of the event. Attendees will be given a 10% discount on purchases at the shop.
This is an in-person event, limited to 15 people. Please RSVP by Friday, January 21, 2022.
Directions: Closest subway stops are the 6 train at Bleecker Street, the F train at 2nd Avenue, and the B, D, F, M trains at Broadway-Lafayette Street.
About Bonnie Slotnick: Bonnie Slotnick opened her eponymous cookbook shop in 1997. She has also worked as a book scout, a (paraprofessional) librarian, and a cookbook editor. She credits these career choice(s) to her childhood obsession with her mother’s 1947 edition of The Settlement Cookbook, which she read and reread as a child.
