Looking for some summer grilling inspiration? Malvern’s The Pub at Wegmans is hosting a book signing with Food Network’s Bobby Flay on Friday, April 26, from 6-8 p.m. Bobby will be on hand to promote his latest cookbook, Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction.
The book, written by Flay, Stephanie Banyas, and Sally Jackson and inspired by Flay’s Food Network show of the same name, features 150 recipes and 100 color photographs of everything you need for a backyard bash, from pitchers of cold drinks to starters and sides. The book also includes info on cookers, fuels, woods, and accessories; how to light and tend a fire; and how to tell when steaks are done. And you definitely don’t want to miss Flay’s top 10 tips for the perfect cookout!
To gear up for the event, The Pub will serve a Bobby Flay-inspired menu throughout the week leading up to the book signing, beginning on Monday, April 22, and culminating in Flay’s visit to The Pub. Dishes, which will range in price from $10-$17, include Gulf shrimp with spicy pickled peach ceviche, Spanish “Cuban” sandwich, rib eye with goat cheese and Meyer lemon mustard, Spanish Caesar salad with Marcona almonds and white anchovies, and coleslaw with creamy cumin-lime-dill vinaigrette.
Books, which must be purchased at Wegmans, will be available beginning Tuesday, April 23, for $24.50, a 30 percent discount. Admission to the signing is free, but space is limited. To reserve a space, pick up a voucher at any Wegmans service desk “That’s T.H.E. Ticket” location.
