  1. Boooooooooo for no Toronto 🙁 I’ll keep an eye on the dates etc… to see if I might catch you somewhere XO

  2. Greetings Dorie,

    Could you please assist with updated your information? Just needs the dates and times for the COOKIE Cities that are confirmed.

    Many thanks,
    Millette

    1. I was Oklahoma City when I toured with Around My French Table and I the surprise of my life: The Governor made that day Dorie Greenspan Day! It was fabulous and it was thanks to Chef John Bennett and his friends. Sadly, it just wasn’t possible to put Oklahoma City on the tour this time – xo

  3. Hi Dorie,
    Have you thought about coming to Texas? Central Market welcomes cookbook authors and chefs at their stores and cooking classes in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Hope to see you!

    1. I have been to Central Market and absolutely love teaching there, but it wasn’t possible to put Texas on my tour this time. Fingers crossed for next time – xo

    1. Philadelphia is not on the tour this time, but it’s so close to NYC and I’ve got friends there, so I’m hoping that, as you said, it might be a later addition – xo

  4. Hi Dorie !
    Will you be planning any dates in Florida?
    I’m in the Boca Raton area . My friends and I would love to be part of the book tour visits!!!

    1. Sadly, no plans for Florida on this tour. I love Boca Raton – it’s where my parents lived – and hope to get there again one day.

  5. Thank you Dorie for the Melody cookie recipe! I baked them today and they’re our new favorites. The perfect cookie…a great snap, crunch and deep chocolate flavor. Looking forward to your book signing in Berkeley!
