After a couple of months of travel and book promotion, I’m back to alternating between weeks of hospital night shifts and full-time mommy duty. Still, I’ve managed to squeeze in some recipe testing (I have some tasty dishes coming to the blog soon!) and to do a smattering of book events during the weeks when I’m not slinging drugs in the middle of the night.


Coming up:

Corte Madera, California

I may have done a few San Francisco Bay Area events already this year, but this’ll be my first signing in the north bay! On February 28, I’ll be appearing with Chris Kresser at Book Passage in Corte Madera, where we’ll be taking questions from the audience before attacking your books with Sharpies. (RSVP by clicking here). If you can’t make it to sunny Northern California to attend our talk, watch this virtual joint book event that we did with BookTalk Nation yesterday:

Technology is pretty cool: At the link above, you can order a personalized signed copy of my cookbook, too. Just enter the name of the recipient of the book, and I’ll write a note to him or her in the book before it gets shipped to you from one of my favorite indie bookstores, Kepler’s Books. (This was the bookstore I used to walk to from my parents’ house when I was a wee lass.) You gotta hurry though, ’cause the offer ends TONIGHT (Thursday, February 20, 2014).

Denver, Colorado

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I visited Colorado. Where did the time go?


I’ll be heading out to Chicago next month, and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to pop into Denver to hang out and sign books at CrossFit Verve, home of the amazing Matt and Cherie Chan.

I’ll be in Colorado for one night only on Thursday, March 13, 2014, at CrossFit Verve from 7 to 9pm. At the start of this free event, I’ll host a Q&A—you can ask me ANYTHING!—as well as a giveaway filled with Nom Nom Paleo swag and Hamilton Beach slow cookers. Boulder Bookstore will be selling books at the signing, so if you don’t already have a copy (or if you want more!), you can easily pick one up at the event. Plus, there’ll be lots of local Paleo-friendly businesses at the event sampling their wares, so my one-and-only stop in Rockies is sure to be a rollicking good time.

Chicago, Illinois

From Denver, I’ll be flying to Chicago to attend a conference, eat my way through the city, and sign books at two free events with my gal pal, Diana Rodgers, author of Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts On the Go and the coolest nutritionist/organic farmer on the planet.

On Saturday, March 15, we’ll be taking questions, doing giveaways, and signing books at the venerable Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville starting at 11am. If you’re reading this right now and live in or near Naperville, you better get your rear end over to Anderson’s next month, or I’m going to have Diana sic her farm animals on you. We don’t expect to draw anywhere near as many readers to Anderson’s as Weird Al did, but still. Click here to learn more and RSVP!


Finally, for you city-folks who can’t be bothered to make it out to the ‘burbs, Diana and I will be coming to see you at Chicago’s CrossFit 312 on Sunday, March 16, from 1 to 3pm, where we’ll host a Q&A and raffle off free stuff before getting to the serious business of personalizing your books with misspelled non-sequiturs and bad puns. Click here to read the deets and RSVP. 

See you soon!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
