For those of you who couldn't make it to Changing Hands Bookstore last night for Gabrielle Hamilton's packed house -- the very last stop of her paperback tour -- here's what you missed: 

We found out that Hamilton's marriage has, in fact, ended and that she has returned to Italy, though only after she had to make the call to her children's grandmother, not to ask permission but to say she was coming. Want more details?  Hamilton's recounted details of all of this can be found in the bonus chapter at the end of the just-released paperback edition. She also discussed her writing process, about finding the right voice for her book that wouldn't bore people (we don't believe she could ever bore anyone) and how she's never had to really pitch any books/essays -- the opportunities have all come to her.

We got to visit with a few readers before Hamilton arrived, many members of the food community themselves -- local foodies and chefs working in kitchens around town.

Marie Belfiglio, currenly the pastry chef at The Mission in Scottsdale and also studying to earn her masters in Creative Non-Fiction at ASU (with an emphasis on food writing). Maybe we'll see her up at the podium discussing her own book sometime in the future?
