A few tickets are still available for the multi-course brunch featuring award-winning cookbook author and Julia Child’s favorite baker, Dorie Greenspan, on Saturday, Nov. 22, at the Fourth Estate Restaurant.

The brunch will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Greenspan, whose ground-breaking bestseller “Around My French Table” won top accolades, will introduce her newest cookbook, “Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere.” The book explores the universe of French desserts, drawing on seasonal ingredients and adapted for the home cook.

Inducted into the James Beard Foundation Who’s Who of Food and Beverage, Greenspan was tapped by Julia Child to write "Baking with Julia." She is the author of two other award-winning cookbooks, "Her Around My French Table" and "Baking: From My Home to Yours."

The brunch will include both savory and sweet dishes as well as beverages paired to match each course. The price includes a cookbook signed by the author.

A single member ticket for brunch and a signed copy of the book is $60. Couples tickets cost $110 and include one book per couple. Members must be signed in to receive the discount.
