Robert Carmack and Morrison Polkinghorne, authors of The Burma Cookbook: Recipies from the Land of a Million Pagodas, will present an hour-long illustrated history of Burma/Myanmar through its food on Wednesday, February 26th, at 10:30.
After the program in Meeting Room A, they will be selling and autographing copies of the soon-to-be-released first edition of the book.
Carmack, a well-known Camas native, is the author of five cookbooks. He currently resides in Sydney, Australia, but says “I feel a special kinship and appreciation for where I spent my formative years.”
In reviews, The Burma Cookbook has been called part history, part travelogue and part cookbook.
The program will be of special interest to those who took part in the Camas Reads The Piano Tuner events in 2008.
River Books (London) is the publisher of the $35 book to be released in March. The Camas stop is part of a lecture and cooking class tour of the west coast to promote the book.
Information about the authors, the book, and the tour can be found on the website www.globetrottingGourmet.com.
Carmack and Polkinghorne’s visit to Camas has been made possible, in part, by the Camas Hotel.
