Author @ the Library: "Dishing the Dirt with Dirt Candy" with Amanda Cohen, Ryan Dunlavey and Grady Hendrix, authors of "Dirt Candy: A Cookbook: Flavor-Forward Food from the Upstart New York City Vegetarian Restaurant."

January 14, 2013

Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

Dirt Candy is the only restaurant in New York City devoted entirely to vegetables, and its chef and owner, Amanda Cohen, will be dishing the dirt on running a restaurant in New York. Set on fast forward, the restaurant world of the Big Apple is like a rough and tumble pit fight, and running a restaurant here is different from doing it anywhere else on earth. In addition, Amanda and artist Ryan Dunlavey (Action Philosophers) will be speaking about their collaboration, Dirt Candy: A Cookbook, the first graphic novel cookbook, and their co-author Grady Hendrix will be talking about New York's unique history of vegetarian restaurants. Wild, wooly, and featuring more monkeys, pandas, and giant robots than you can shake a stick at, this panel will feature the shocking facts about NY restaurant realities, a graphic look at creating a graphic novel, and a chance to travel back in time to an age when kosher restaurants ruled Manhattan.
