Annual Portland Cookbook Social

December 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Imperial’s Chef Vitaly Paley and the Portland Culinary Alliance will host the third Holiday Cookbook Social on Sunday, December 6th from 1-3 pm in the Hotel Lucia’s Pettygrove Room in the heart of downtown Portland.

Acclaimed chefs and authors from the Northwest will gather to sign and talk about their books just in time for the holiday gift giving season. This free event will feature complimentary bites from most authors, and wine will be available for purchase from Imperial’s bar. Shoppers will be able to find something for everyone on their gift list, from the ambitious home cook to the restaurant obsessor, the aspiring family bartender to the beer aficionado.

No RSVP required. Bring your friends!
