Invasion of the Food Network Femmes


If Ferran Adrià and the Food Network’s Sandra Lee are in the same place at the same time, will the planet explode?

We’re saved! The elBulli chef will just miss Madam Semi Homemade, who comes to L.A. to promote her new book on October 27 (Flintridge Bookstore and Coffee House, 12:30 p.m.) and October 28 (Barnes and Noble at Americana at Brand, 7 p.m.).

If that weren’t enough (enough of what, I’m not saying), Giada de Laurentiis is here the same weekend to screen an episode of her new show and sign her latest book (October 28, The Paley Center for Media, 7 p.m.). A few weeks later, Iron Chef Cat Cora makes an appearance to talk about her time in Kitchen Stadium and promote—surprise!—her book (November 19, The Paley Center for Media,7 p.m.).

If Rachel Ray drops in anytime soon, I’m outta here.
