Yesterday my friend Allison emailed me about a foodie event at Symphony Space called Mastering the Art of Writing About Cooking, with Judith Jones and Alex Prud’homme. Judith Jones, the editor at Knopf who edited Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, will be talking with Julia’s grandnephew, Alex. Judith Jones recently published her memoir The Tenth Muse: My Life In Food and Alex co-wrote My Life in France with Julia Child. It sounds like an interesting discussion and one that I hope to attend.
Also, in partnership with the World Music Institute, Symphony Space also occasionally hosts South-Asian classical music concerts. I wanted to go to the Subhra Guha concert but it’s sold out!
Tickets for Mastering the Art of Writing About Food are $21 and Symphony Space is at on the Upper West Side, at Broadway and 95th street. You can get more information here or check out Symphony Space’s other events here.
