One of New York City’s most tantalizing annual events, Food Book Fair, has spun off a new series called Food Book Party. And a party it was! The series continued on Thursday, November 5, with rule-breaking chef Justin Warner, who discussed and cooked from his new book, The Laws of Cooking: And How to Break Them (check out a few of his innovative recipes here and here), and sommelier-at-large and winemaker Andre Mack. The two discussed industry experiences that included a Burger Heaven bun and serving a child who had just had his braces tightened. Warner served up some gouda and rauchbier soup topped with fried capers and Mighty Quinn’s brisket while Club W provided the wine. Missed out on this party? Don’t fret — there’s one more scheduled for December 1. Be sure to stay tuned to Food Republic for full details.
