The Hip Girl's Guide
to the Kitchen:

A Hit-the-Ground Running Approach to Stocking Upand Cooking Delicious, Nutritious, and Affordable Meals

You can become a confident cook—even if the drawer with the take-out menus is the only part of your kitchen you currently use. Kate Payne, with her straightforward advice and encouraging yes-you-can attitude, will offer up tips at BookPeople on how to master basic cooking techniques and simplify the "fancy ones", like jamming, preserving, dehydrating and infusing. Join us tonight as our friends from Edible Austin are here to lead the conversation. They'll also provide refreshments based on Payne’s recipes, as well as beverages courtesy of Tito's Handmade Vodka & Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

The author of The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking shows you how to love your kitchen and learn to make creative, delicious food without breaking your budget.
