Book Update and Holiday Signings


Di Bruno Bros book in my hand

As of today, it’s been seven months since the publication of The Di Bruno Bros House of Cheese. Here I am at my little cherry desk, and would you believe that I am still surrounded by a hodgepodge of drafts? Maybe I’ll use those marked-up pages for holiday wrapping. Maybe I’ll send you a signed cheese book wrapped in page 210 with a recipe for Blue Velvet Pudding. Shall I?

Promoting a book is funny work. It’s exciting to hold the bound copy but disillusioning to stand around at book signings where people offer a mix of delight and downright disinterest — “I can’t possibly buy another cookbook.” Well…okay, but it’s not just another cookbook! It’s my cheese guide, grumpkin, which is much, much sexier!

Anyway, far be it from me to get my girdle in a wudge. The holidays are upon us like horses, like horses. Below is a list of signings where you can find me in November and December, and if you want a personalized copy sent to you with a MF tote…well, patience, patience. I have a Madame Fromage Holiday Weekender Bag in the works. Of course I do, darling, of course!

    I can’t imagine anyone on your blog list not already having a signed copy of your wonderful book! If I lived closer, it would be great fun to go to all these ritzy places and stand around grinning… I would need to restrain myself from giggling and skipping, so much fun would I be having! A MF Holiday Weekender bag? Tres chic! Will you sign that too, s’il vous plait? If appropriate. Patience is my middle name.
