“An Onion in My Pocket” coming out in May

My new book is coming out in early May. It is not a cookbook but a food memoir that documents the start-up of vegetarian food in the 60s, my experience as a Zen student, the beginnings of Greens restaurant, and in the end, what really matters most about memorable food —and it’s not the absence or presence of meat.
The book is called “An Onion in My Pocket” and the publisher is Knopf.

I will be signing books on May 2 at the Santa Fe farmer’s market as a benefit for the market, and that evening I’ll be speaking at our wonderful independent bookstore, Collected Works. Meanwhile, “An Onion in My Pocket” can be pre-ordered wherever books are sold. I will keep you posted as to where and when I’ll be speaking.
