"The Hamilton Cookbook" Dinner at The Fourth Estate Restaurant

"The Hamilton Cookbook" Dinner at The Fourth Estate Restaurant

February 21, 2018 6:30 PM

Location: 4th Estate Restaurant


The Hamilton CookbookA historic dinner based on what Alexander Hamilton would have served at a dinner party brought to life by Laura Kumin who is a writer, teacher, and cooking coach. As a recovering lawyer, she infinitely prefers feeding family and friends to fighting legal battles. She created Mother Would Know to encourage readers to become confident home cooks. Laura is not embarrassed at the number of spatulas, graters, and cookbooks that she owns, or that she buys chocolate in 1-pound bars.
