Cooking Demo and Book Signing: Claire Thomas "THE KITCHY KITCHEN" (Culver City)

Sat, Feb 28 2015

Cooking Demo and Book Signing: Claire Thomas "THE KITCHY KITCHEN" (Culver City)
Saturday February 28 from 11-1pm
In the Surfas Test Kitchen Culver City

Surfas Culver City welcomes Claire Thomas, Author of THE KITCHY KITCHEN, New Classics For Living Deliciously for a cooking demonstration and book signing Saturday February 28, 2015 from 11-1pm.

This is a FREE demonstration, samples and recipes will be provided. Arrive early as seating is limited

CLAIRE THOMAS is an unabashed food enthusiast. She works as a nationally recognized commercial director, food photographer, and writer. Her blog, The Kitchy Kitchen (www.thekitchykitchen.com), was an experiment born in 2008 after enduring a more than unsatisfying job after college, and is her much beloved playground. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Claire has turned food into an intellectual and grumbling stomach-driven passion. She has written for many outlets, including The Huffington Post, Daily Candy, Real Simple, Lucky Magazine, and Eater amongst others.

Creator of the wildly popular food blog and hot new YouTube channel The Kitchy Kitchen, Claire Thomas is known for her playful, fresh, unfussy Southern California aesthetic.  In THE KITCHY KITCHEN Thomas has collected over 150 of her best new recipes, designed to appeal to today’s generation of foodies and home cooks, who appreciate Thomas’s ability to refresh the familiar with contemporary flair and the latest flavors. Whether you are new to the kitchen or not, Claire’s approach is irresistible: creative, loose and personal, the ideal springboard for making recipes truly your own.

Thomas has updated some all-time favorites, including Coconut-Sriracha Fried Chicken, Rosemary Bacon Hashbrowns, and S’meaches: s’mores with a fresh slice of peach from the farmer’s market. Her recipes focus on ingredients that can be easily found and almost endlessly combined and are approachable for even the most casual of cooks. From her Boyfriend Sauce—let it simmer for a few hours while you watch your favorite movie together—to Blueberry Muffin Ice Cream or Lavender Shortbread Cookies THE KITCHY KITCHEN is full of recipes and tips that evoke Thomas’s classy-yet-cool personality. And she has come up with an ingenious method of coding her recipes so the cook can easily see what’s up before diving in: YUM (for quick and simple) to MMM (a little bit more complex) and WOW (showstoppers – needs extra love and attention.)

Claire offers menus for dinner parties, with drinks like the Beer Fashioned—an Old Fashioned meets your favorite craft beer—to a Honey Truffle Grilled Cheese for a Girls’ Movie Night;  all sure to appeal to a wide variety of tastes, skill levels, and time commitments. THE KITCHY KITCHEN is perfect for both new cooks looking to build up an arsenal of go to dishes, whether it’s to impress one special guest or a crowd, and more experienced cooks who want to change up their routines and have fun doing it. Gorgeously illustrated, this book will make your life in the kitchen a little easier, a little more fabulous, and positively delicious.
