I'm so excited - Jane Snow's cookbook is finally coming out!
Jane Snow was the food editor in my local paper, the Akron Beacon Journal. My interest in home cooking took off after we moved to Akron, a little over ten years ago, and I immediately found out what a treasure we had in our local paper. I always looked forward to Jane's weekly articles, food notes, and recipes. She retired a few years back, to work on a cookbook, or so I heard.*
*I've been waiting. Patiently... Jane's recipe for Chicken Mole is still the best one I've ever made, and I've tried them from a number of cookbooks, including a couple different variations from Rick Bayless.
I've been a loyal subscriber to her weekly newsletter, JaneSnowToday.com, in part because I wanted to get the news about the cookbook. Oh, and she happened to mention a steak cook off in the newsletter a few months ago, which inspired me to enter. Did I mention that I won?
I was doing a search on the web last night, to find the link to JaneSnowToday.com, and I saw it in Google: the cookbook is coming! Jane Snow Cooks is being released at the end of September! I immediately placed my pre-order.
I figured I would write it up on my blog, to help get the word out...and then I opened the Akron Beacon Journal this morning and saw that I had been scooped by the new food editor, Lisa Abraham. Oh, well. There was more good news in Lisa's article; Jane is working on another cookbook after this one. I just hope the wait isn't as long this time!
Lisa says that the official release will be at the Ohio Mart Arts & Crafts Festival at Stan Hywet Hall on October 3rd. Jane will be there for a book signing from 1PM to 3PM. I'll see you there!
