I really love every recipe of yours that I’ve tried – I actually got my husband to eat and enjoy tofu for the first time EVER because of your crisy tofu and rice noodle bowls! I hope you enjoy Birmingham; it’s a great city with lots to see if you have the time. I will be there at your book signing! Can’t wait!

Forget all of the other suggestions and get yourself to Antico Pizza.

Order your Napoli-style pie at the counter, pick up your red peppers and fresh chopped garlic by the ovens, and then prepare to fight for a seat. Worst-case scenario: you have to stuff your face while standing up in the kitchen and watch the men make your pizza.

Incredible.

And don’t forget to BYOB! They have bottle openers and little plastic cups for you to use. :)

I also think you would love the farmer’s market in Madison on a Saturday morning, followed by a Badger game at Camp Randall. Really, there’s nothing better …

So exciting (and helpful) that you and your Mom can do this together. Am sure ‘White Jacket’ will be #1 on Amazon ‘tout de suite’ and that it’ll be a terrific read.

You HAVE to try Six Feet Under off of Memorial Drive. The best martini I’ve ever had – they put blue cheese olives in it. And their catfish, rat toes (scallops wrapped in bacon), shrimp n’ grits, fried okra,… I could go on and on. Also, the Vortex in Little Five Points or Bone Garden Cantina have great atmosphere and some of the best burgers/tacos.
Enjoy your stay!

Yay Birmingham!!!! My girlfriends and I are SO excited!!

Reply

Amanda July 24, 2012 at 3:12 pm

It looks like you should add a poll to the website for a fan favorite choice and make that your last stop… Just saying. :)
I’ll put the first plug in for Oklahoma City. I have an absolutely amazing yoga instructor/studio to visit while you’re here – second floor studio in a charming, old house with the perfect amount of creaks as you walk up the stairs, followed by produce just off the family farm. Sunday morning Gospel Vinyassa is a must!

I second the Raleigh suggestion. Quail Ridge Books (a lovely independent bookstore) would be the perfect location for you in the Triangle. I would love to hear you read there (and meet you too). Any chance of adding additional signings?

Congratulations, Jenna!

This is so exciting for you! To be honest, I’m not sure if this book will be my cup of tea but that really doesn’t matter and is in no way a criticism. What I find so admirable and inspiring is the fact that I read your blog when you hadn’t “made it” – you really deserve all you get because you worked your way up, making a risky move to California, noticeably improving the quality of the writing and photography as you learned, and making a somewhat risky change in content (to focus more on food) which paid off.

What about New England???

Yeah, How about New England?? Maine is lovely in September!!

The Savannah date is on my calendar! It’s because of you I finally went to Back in the Day and I’m forever greatful. I’m kicking myself for taking 5 years to go there. Now it’s a family favorite stop and I’ve already made 25% of the recipes in the cookbook!

Congrats on your book! Ever since I met you in Chicago many moons ago it seems, I knew you would go BIG. You are awesome. I can’t wait to grab a copy for myself.

The coolest bookstore that ever existed used to be in Opera Plaza. ‘A Clean and Well-Lighted Place for Books’. Seriously one of my favorite places in SF while living there 20-years. Friends and I would go to lunch across the way on a rainy day. Browse in the store all day–pre whatever author talk was scheduled. They had great ones. Then go to an art film also in the Opera Plaza. Perfect days.

You have a great gift for telling a story and I look forward to reading your future books:) Congrats!
