The Apothecary

The Apothecary” is a new Young Adult novel written by Maile Meloy that’s been getting rave reviews – Abe’s already read (and loved) it – think “Harry Potter” meets John le Carré

We celebrated the book’s release yesterday – couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw who was there:

Been wanting to try Cool Haus for years, but have never caught up with the truck. They gave me samples of every flavor!!!

I shared a heavenly Potato Chip and Skor Bar cookie with 3 friends, before hitting the dinner buffet

Heirloom LA did a tremendous job catering – every single bite was wonderful!!!

My favorite bite was the chicken n waffles with a blueberry/whipped cream topping. I ate seconds of those, along with another plate from the Crostini Station…

Stuffed one tortilla with beef shortrib, salsa, and guac; on the side – halibut, chicken, and caponata

Ready to burst at this point, but there was one more thing on the menu…

My Cool Haus creation – Blackberry Ginger Sorbet sandwiched between a Maple Waffle and Vegan Ginger Cookie

Epic. Sooooo epic.

I dominated the entire dessert, but just a taste of the paper it came wrapped in.

Yup, that’s right. Edible. Tasted like communion wafer.

Hope the kiddies don’t try nibbling the pages out of this book – I want to read them!

    Looks like foodie paradise! That potato chip cookie sounds awesome. You seem to have the same strategy as me at events with so many food options – little tastes of everything so you don’t miss out! I like it 😀

    Pretty sure I could be talked into most anything with that blackberry ginger sorbet sandwich. I luv you, but would have wrestled you to the ground to swipe it from your little fingers. 😮

    I have to stop reading your blog before bedtime, it makes me so HUNGRY, lol! And thank you for sharing about the book, I’ve been looking for a Harry Potter-esque fantasy to get me away!
