J.M. Hirsch, 'Beating the Lunch Box Blues: Fresh Ideas for Lunches on the Go!'

10/23/2013 7:00 pm

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013, 7 p.m.

Our very own local J.M. Hirsch (the national food editor for The Associated Press) collaborated with Rachel Ray to create this cookbook ideabook! Join us for a talk about lunch, and a cooking demonstration, to see what you can do to easily spice up your leftovers to create an exciting mid-day meal.

"Longing for more than yet another limp salad? Tired of tussling with the kids over junk food lunch kits? Sounds like you've got the lunch box blues. J. M. Hirsch has the fix. 

But it isn't a cookbook. Because when it comes to lunch, nobody has time to break out a recipe to bang out a brown bag special. Busy people need lunch ideas. Lots of them. And those ideas need to be healthy, fast, easy, affordable, and delicious. 

That's what Beating the Lunch Box Blues is--an idea book to inspire anyone daunted by the daily ordeal of packing lunch. Jammed with nearly 200 photos and more than 500 tips and meals, this book is designed to save families time, money, and their sanity.

Whether you want to jazz up a grilled cheese, turn leftover steak into a DIY taco kit, or make pizza "sushi," Hirsch has it covered. And because the best lunches often are built from the leftovers of great suppers, he has also included 30 fast and flavorful dinner recipes designed to make enough for tomorrow, too. Crazy good stuff like short ribs braised in a Rosemary-Port Sauce, Hoisin-Glazed Meatloaf, and kid-friendly classics such as Turkey Sloppy Joes and American Chop Suey.
With ideas this easy and this delicious, there's no reason to let the lunch box blues get you down."

Why We Make Things

One of the most interesting books of this or any season, Why We Make Things is both a memoir and a meditation on the nature of creativity.  The book itself was sumptuously produced by one of the last true craftsmen in publishing, David Godine. Join us at the League of NH Craftsmen on Thursday, April 17, at 5:30 PM, to hear the author and to ask him questions--and maybe to pick up an early Father's Day present.
 
Chris Bohjalian
 
A rare local appearance by Chris Bohjalian!
Wed., May 7, at 7 PM
When Chris learned that our in-store book group had chosen his novel The Sandcastle Girls for May, he required little convincing to agree to come talk about it. Armenian history is very important to him. You don't have to have read the novel to attend. Come hear Chris talk about this important topic, and about his many other novels as well. Open to all fans of Chris Bohjalian and students of history!
Chris Bohjalian's excellent new novel, Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands, will be on our shelves on July 8. Reserve your copy today!
