Looking for the inside scoop on places that Princeton foodies like to frequent? Here’s a chance to hear some dedicated noshers talk about their local favorites on February 9 at the Princeton Public Library. I know two of them myself, Pat Tanner is my longtime colleague and fellow In The Kitchen columnist at the Packet, while Linda Prospero is on the board of Dorothea’s House in Princeton, and started her own beautiful blog, ChowCiaoLinda not so long ago after a career as a professional journalist.
Princeton Foodies and the Food and Places They Love
Tuesday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m.
This panel of Princeton area “foodies” will talk about all things edible – from ethnic restaurants and family-friendly places to farmers’ markets and their favorite food blogs – in a discussion followed by questions and refreshments. Panelists are Princeton Food Examiner Sue Gordon, bloggers Phyllis Knight and Linda Prospero, and critic/columnist Pat Tanner. Gordon taught cooking for more than 20 years, including a stint at Princeton’s Whole Foods Market. She is a graduate of the Cordon Bleu School in London. Knight’s blog is popular among the food-obsessed. She and her husband plan vacations around food and love nothing more than wandering the aisles of food specialty stores. Prospero’s blog focuses on home-cooked Italian food, a topic she knows well from spending a year living in Italy. Tanner is well-known locally for her articles and reviews in New Jersey Life, The Star-Ledger of Newark, The Princeton Packet, The Times of Trenton, and several other publications.
