Steal the Menu at the 92YTribeca

If you’re in lower Manhattan on Friday, don’t miss a discussion at the 92YTribeca with Ray Sokolov, acclaimed food critic and author of the just-released food memoir, “Steal the Menu.” Here’s the promo from the Y:
Sparky
Former New York Times restaurant critic Raymond Sokolov traces the food scene in America from the publication of Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” through today’s diverse culinary world.
Along the way, he touches on the impact of French chefs like Paul Bocuse; the introduction of nouvelle cuisine; the halcyon days of Lutece; and centers of modernist food like El Bulli.

Among Ray’s accomplishments over the years: Raymond Sokolov was food editor at The New York Times, a food columnist for Natural History and arts and culture editor at The Wall St. Journal. He is the author of Steal the Menu: A Memoir of Forty Years in Food.

The discussion begins at noon. Bring an appetite, because after Ray talks about all the great food he’s eaten over the years, you’ll be hungry.

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is the classic, anti-hero private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, running errands and fixing problems for Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses. But readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in the widely acclaimed series, is a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, an up-and-coming boxer and the nephew of Rick's underworld boss. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Fate" is due out in August 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
