"Julia's Child", a funny foodie novel

Thursday May 10th, 2012, 7 p.m.

New Hampshire local Sarah Pinneo brings a hilarious novel for the foodie crowd, or any mother who has stressed over trying to find healthy foods that her toddler will actually eat. Like her character Julia, Sarah understands the work vs. stay at home decision.  Sarah was a Wall Street dealmaker for ten years before making the transition from breadwinner to bread baker.  Now a food journalist, and co-author of The Ski House Cookbook, Sarah blogs on her home page at sarahpinneo.com, and at Blub is a Verb on SheWrites.com.

Women do everything possible to feed the healthiest foods to their children—from sneaking broccoli into mac n’cheese, to adding carrots to pancakes.   For mom Julia Bailey, giving the best meant starting her own organic food company, Julia’s Child, which offers toddler meals like Gentle Lentil and Give Peas a Chance.  As Julia’s fledgling upstart seems poised for success, can this idealistic mompreneur juggle a successful career with her busy home life? 

Perfect for foodie and all-natural mamas, Julia's Child examines motherhood’s choices: organic vs. local, paper vs. plastic, staying at home vs. risking it all.  At her signing, Sarah will be bringing a humorous presentation about all the real-life foodie entrepreneurs she met while writing the book.
