I’m off to the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) conference, which is being held this year in the food Mecca of America—NEW ORLEANS. I will be participating in the Cookbook Expo on Friday, April 18, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the Earnest N. Morial Convention Center. This is a cookbook collector’s dream! The expo is free and open to the public, so if you will be in New Orleans, stop by to talk to your favorite celebrity authors (and me too!) and pick up signed copies of their new books. I will have a very special bonus gift for anyone who buys my book at the expo, courtesy of LowCarb Specialties.

There’s a bonus for me this year too—my sister, Leita, lives in New Orleans and she has promised me a foodie’s tour of the city; who could resist such an offer? Perhaps I’ll figure out a way to make low carb beignets to share with you, but I probably need to sample a few to be sure I know how they should taste. That’s just research. Right?… Right? Hope to see you in New Orleans!

Octavia Books has posted details about the authors who will be participating and their new books at: http://octaviabooks.booksense.com/NASApp/store/IndexJsp?s=storeevents&eventId=373900.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

Thanks Amy. I did the expo last year (you are allowed to consider your book new for two conferences) when anyone promoting low-carb was a pariah. I hope it will be different this time with all the new research.
