Bastille Day Celebration with the Bay Gourmet Forum

Cara Black, Author, Murder at the Lanterne Rouge - the 12 Aimee Leduc Mystery
in conversation with Leonard Pitt, Physical Theatre Actor and Teacher, Author, Walks Through Lost Paris: Paris, A Journey Through Time

And Yigit Pura, Winner, "Top Chef: Just Desserts"; Owner, Tout Sweet, in conversation with Cathy Curtis, Chair, Bay Gourmet Forum

San Francisco resident Black frequents a Paris little known outside the beaten tourist track. She shares this Paris with us in her award-nominated Aime’e Leduc Investigation series. Each murder mystery is based in a different arrondissement in Paris and features the spike-haired, tattoed detective Aime’e Leduc. Black and Pitt will talk about her book, their love of Paris and, of course, the cuisine of France. She will be joined by "Top Chef: Just Desserts" champion Pura, who is opening pastry shop Tout Sweets in Macy's Union Square and who will talk about his amazing career and love of French pastries. You will also taste his delicious treats.
