Duende in Oakland Welcomes the Food Gal for A Book-Signing Event


If you’ve yet to enjoy the signature fideua with duck at Duende in Oakland, then head there, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. April 6.

That’s when Chef-Proprietor Paul Canales will be hosting a special book-signing event in the lively bodega side of the restaurant featuring yours truly.

Canales’ recipe for the classic Spanish paella-like dish made with noodles rather than rice is spotlighted in my cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press). The book is a compilation of more than 50 top Bay Area restaurants with their stories and their famed recipes.

Fideua with duck and olives at Duende is featured in my debut cookbook.

You’ll not only enjoy glasses of bubbly cava and tastes of the fideua, but go home with a copy of the cookbook, signed by Canales, book photographer Craig Lee, and myself.

Tickets to the event are $50 per person. To reserve, send an email to: info@duendeoakland.com with subject header, “Book Signing Reservation.” Indicate the number of people attending. On the day of the event, pay upon arrival when you check in at the door.

Join in on the fun at Duende.

  • I’ve been so busy I’ve barely been on other sites and missed your cookbook debut. Of course you didn’t think I would miss this? Just ordered it on Amazon and only 17 left. Way to go! Looking forward to receiving it.

  • Wow this looks like such a great event. How awesome to be able to meet you and have you sign your cookbook. Another reason it would be nice to still live in Northern California!!
