Gail Simmons has a career most foodies dream of: as a host on Top Chef and Special Projects Director for Food and Wine Magazine, she travels the globe as a professional eater. Now, she’s collected her experiences into a book. Talking With My Mouth Full traces her journey from a young women struggling as a food writer in Toronto, to the kitchens of Le Cirque and Vong in New York, to assisting at Vogue. The book doesn’t just describe how Gail found her way, it also includes photos and some of her favourite recipes. The book is a great reminder that you can follow your passion to a career you love, even if you have to make it up as you go along.
To celebrate the publication, beloved accessories designer Coach is hosting a book signing at their Bloor St. store (131 Bloor St. W.), on Wednesday March 14th, from 4-6 pm. Snag a signed copy for yourself or your favourite food lover.
