Cookbook Author Deborah Madison happened to be in L.A. visiting Melissa’s Produce for her book launch of her latest cookbook, In My Kitchen. I had the opportunity to attend the event and meet her after all these years of cooking her recipes. As we arrived, we had the book signing and a delicious and colorful luncheon prepared for us to enjoy by the staff. We continued with our luncheon while Deborah gave us a peak into her life.
She was kind enough to sign each one of us a copy of her book. I think that was the largest turnout at Melissa’s I have ever seen.
Melissa’s had a beautiful display of vegetables for us to pack up and take home. Enough for us to recreate many of Deborah’s recipes. I did make her delicious raspberry-rhubarb sauce which we devoured in no time. One of many dishes served that day.
I chose to make the pasta, not only because it sounded delicious, but I loved her story behind the recipe, and the year she spent in Rome.
I used pappardelle pasta, and a good quality Gorgonzola cheese. Don’t skip on the fresh pepper!
