Upcoming Events, Cooking Classes and Stuff.
Hiiii. I gots stuff to tell you!
First… local cooking classes. I’ve been teaching classes at Crate all year and they are super fun and embarrassing for me. During the last class I burnt my oven fries (I accidentally wrote “friends”… oh well, fries are my friends) to a charred BLACK crisp and almost caught the blender on fire while making a boozy milkshake. If you’d like to particpate in such ridiculousness, there are two classes coming up! I believe each one has less than 10 spots left, and they usually sell out. Note: the cost of the class is for the food because you are going to get to EAT (and drink!) your little hearts out. No really. I am full as heck when I leave these things. To register for the classes, click on ‘classes” on the left sidebar on the crate website, then choose the month of October or November and the corresponding date.
OCT 23 – Seriously Delish Class: I’ll be cooking things from the book! I’ll be signing books as well so if you got a copy of Seriously Delish, bring it with you. We are going to eat like kiiiiings.
NOV 6 – Soups Class! I’ll be making a ton of my favorite fall soups and we will have some bread to dip in it. obviously. Think bread bowls! Beer cheese! Cold weather, sweaters, boots and candles. Mmmm.
[also, if you’re SUPER into planning ahead, i’m teaching incredible classes in the new year that you can sign up for NOW – tex mex and brunch in january and pizza in february!]
Next, if you can’t make it to an actual book signing but would like a signed copy for yourself, for a friend or for a gift for the upcoming holidays, you can order one through Penguin Bookshop here in Pittsburgh and they will ship it to you. Call the store to order your copy. And local friends… this is the most incredible little bookshop ever. I want to live inside.
[As another note, nearly all of the signed bookplates from the August promo have gone out by now – but there are a few left coming to you! Without sounding like a massive jerkface, I signed a LOT of plates and we had to do a couple reprints of the label since it was customized for the book due to the response. If you are still waiting, it is absolutely coming to you and will be there in another week or two!]
BOOK TOUR DATES!
Last thing – make sure to check out the book tour page! This week I’ll be signing books (and making fooood) in Boston on Friday at noon, and next week I head to Seattle and San Francisco. As I recap these on instagram, many of you have mentioned that you had no idea I would be there, so check the page!! All the dates are there, and unfortunately no more will be added since I have this bun in the oven and am slowly becoming a professional waddler. (still in heels though. still in heels.)
Okay, that is all. Thank you guys for making the last month of Seriously Delish so SERIOUSLY AWESOME. And please keep sharing what you’re making with me – even if you switch some dishes up! I want to see and hear it all. Share them on the facebook page or tweet them to me – and make sure to upload your photos to instagram with the hashtag #seriouslydelish so I can find them! You rule. xoxo

I had no idea that you taught classes! My daughter spent this past summer in Pittsburgh and will be moving there in June, after college graduation, to start her full time job….I can’t wait to keep an eye out for classes and arrange a trip to Pittsburgh at the same time!
i tried to convince my boyfriend to let me fly out to see you in SF or Seattle ( I live in Phoenix), but I guess when you buy a house, your travel funds go bye-bye! Whoops! Keep doing what you’re doing girl! You are amazing, and an inspiration to all bacon-loving-neon-pink-wearing girls everywhere!!!
Hey there! How long do your book signings usually last? I’ve been dying to get my hands on a copy of Seriously Delish and meet you! Unfortunately, though, I have class until 1. Any chance you’ll stick around for a bit? Or are they usually pretty quick? Either way, congrats on all of the super exciting things going on right now!
oops-should have specified…I mean for this Friday in Boston!
i’d say average about 2 hours – but i’m not positive about this one since it’s during the day on a weekday! it might only be an hour or so – also depends how long q and a lasts!!
Look forward to seeing you in less than two weeks!
Oh, how I want to jump in that fluffy bed with iced coffee! Perfection.
COME TO CANADA (Specifically, Toronto!). Please?
Yes yes yes!!!
How’s about adding southern California to that list? Sunny San Diego is alwaaaays a good idea. :)
the best doughnuts in the Chapel Hill area are at either Monuts OR Rise. i recommend both (plus a biscuit at Rise)
If you’re going stay in North Carolina overnight, you should check out the Durham Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning – baked goods and food trucks galore. I’m dying to give you a tour if you’re interested!
aaah, I wish I lived closer (I’m in Canada) so I could come to your cooking class!
If only you toured to Dallas or taught a guest class here….oh its a foodie Mecca and you would love it!

Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhy don’t I live close to you!
I met you in Philly which was AMAZING, so glad you came to our city, and it wasn’t until after you signed my book that I realized the heels you were wearing! Good lord, they were high! I can’t handle heels like that while NOT pregnant, so good for you for pulling it off while pregnant. Anyway, it was so great to meet you!!
thank you so much for coming caitlin!!!
I regularly read your blog with great relish!
Until you mentioned the Penguin bookstore, I had no idea you were in Pittsburgh! Haven’t seen any pierogi posts or sandwiches with fries to tip me off:)
I grew up buying books at the Penguin! Wish I still lived in Sewickley so I could drop by and pick up an autographed copy in person!
I appreciate the info on ordering a copy from the Penguin. Thanks for making my days more delicious!
I’M GONNA SEE YOU IN SF WHEN YOU’RE THERE NEXT WEEK! omg I don’t know how I’m gonna contain my excitement! AHHHHHHHHHHH
I missed you when you came to Cincinnati–ugh.
I was at Joseph Beth later that afternoon.
Oh my goodness, your cooking classes sound like my cup of tea! Come teach in SoCal and I will be there :)
Is the Boston signing only for Northeastern students?? I want to make sure it’s open to the public before making my way into the city :)
no, it’s open to the public!!
Aww hosting a cooking class sounds like so much fun!! I would love to do something like that one day.
Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, but I’m just now starting to become more inventive in the kitchen without the use of a recipe.
Have a great day!
Oh wow that pizza class sounds awesome! It’ll be a fun date night with my husband in the burgh. :)
