A Book Party With Johanna Kindvall Nov. 7


On November 7, 2015 I’m hosting one of my favorite collaborators, Johanna Kindvall — creator of the illustrated food blog, Kokblog. You, dear readers, are invited to join us chez moi for a late afternoon Fika, the subject of her latest book (fika is the Swedish coffee hour). We’re designing a cozy gathering in my Fishtown-neighborhood cheese salon, complete with coffee, mulled wine, ginger cookies and other Swedish baked goods, plus a luscious cheese board. Johanna is also going to use my kitchen to demonstrate one of her recipes.

We have 15 spots for this special gathering. Johanna will have books and prints of her work for sale, as will I, so this could be your chance to do a little holiday shopping. The real reason for the party, though, is simply to bring people together. After all, Johanna and I have never met in person (though we Skype), and we’re excited to meet up and host a little book party..

If you’re a cheese lover, blogger, aspiring food writer, illustrator, or just a delightful bird with a yen for cheese and cookies, please join us!

November 7, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.

327 E. Thompson St., Phila 19125 

$20 person (click green button below for a link!)


A Little Background on Johanna

Johanna Kindvall is a blogger and illustrator from Sweden who lives in Brooklyn. Her latest book is Fika: The Art of The Swedish Coffee Break, with Recipes for Breads, Pastries, and Other Treats (Ten Speed Press, 2015), by Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall. Paste Magazine calls it “a baking book mixed with etiquette how-to and cultural know-how, iced with a calendar of holidays and expressed as a work of illustrated art. “

Our Collaborations

Last year, Johanna and I created a series to illustrate the seasonality of cheese. Her illustrations capture both the fanciful and functional nature of cheese, making her one of my favorite dairy conspirators.
