Restaurateur/chef Bloomfield to visit Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe for book signing


The Good Earth / Great Chefs series welcomes chef, restaurateur and author April Bloomfield for a signing of her latest cookbook, “A Girl and Her Greens: Hearty Meals from the Garden,” from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. May 9 at Chino Farms.

Bloomfield is the executive chef/co-owner of the New York restaurants The Spotted Pig, The Breslin Bar & Dining Room, The John Dory Oyster Bar, Salvation Taco and San Francisco’s Tosca Cafe. “A Girl and Her Greens” reflects the lighter side of the chef whose name is nearly synonymous with nose-to-tail eating. Written in her appealing, down-to-earth style, this cookbook features lively illustrations, insightful sidebars and tips, and a charming narrative.

This will be a special Mother’s Day weekend event, with music by Prairie Sky, food samples using spring vegetables from Chino Farms, and many new pantry items for sale. Chino Farm is at 6123 Calzada del Bosque, Rancho Santa Fe.
