It’s time! It happened! After 2 years of working on my cookbook it’s FINALLY here!!

OMG it’s happening! Almost 2 years in the making and my 2nd cookbook is officially on shelves everywhere books are sold. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to get this book into your hands and meet you guys on book tour. This is seriously a dream come true and in large part thanks to you guys! You make my job so fun and I am so excited to be able to share even more recipes with you!

If you haven’t ordered it yet – let’s do this! Links to where it’s sold are right here – take your pick from independent book stores, amazon, barnes and noble, williams sonoma… you name it! It’s everywhere! And if you wander into your favorite book store and can’t find it, tell them to get their act together and order it!

Book Tour:

The first round of book tour dates are up! and I’m hitting the road HARD. North, South, East, West… it’s all happening. 21ish cities in 2 months!! If you don’t see your city on the list, shoot me an email or comment on this post with where you’re located and I’ll do my best to make it happen!

all the details and RSVP links can be found here!

And a few FAQ’s:

Yes, some of the crew is coming with me! Matt is for sure coming to all the Texas stops but also trying to convince him to come elsewhere! Thomas is coming to some too but TBD on exactly where!

Ticket price: that covers either the cost of either the book or the cost of my latest product line which is getting announced soon but I promise you’ll love it. (I mean, you loved the salsas right? And this is equally as epic!)  You can pick or choose when you RSVP. That way, if you already pre-ordered 10,000 billion copies of the book because obviously you want to gift them to every single person that lives near you, you can bring them no problem!

Will there be food / drink at the signing: ummmmm have you met me? YES!

Any other questions, shout them out below and I’ll answer right away! And all the links for specific cities are right over here on my cookbook page!

For those of you who preordered:

If you pre-ordered the book and filled out the pre-order form before 4/16, you will be getting your 3.5 ounce package of Himalayan pink sea salt from Hepp’s Salt Co gift in the mail soon!! Stay tuned… xoxo

Okay okay… what else:

The book is 125 brand spanking new recipes (ok there are like 5 blog favorites in there that got a bit of a face lift!) and it covers EVERYTHING. Appetizers, Breakfast/Brunch, Sides, Salads, Easy Weeknight Meals, Weekend Entertaining Recipes, Desserts, Sauces and MORE. You name it. It’s in there. It’s all recipes inspired by my California life but here’s the thing… living a California style life doesn’t mean you have to live in CA! To me it’s all a state of mind and I think we’ve def managed to wrap that all up into a book!!

I wrote this book for many reasons but 2 big ones.

One – you guys. You guys make my job so much fun! I love seeing my recipes in your kitchen with your spin! Getting your messages on social and emails about how you’ve started cooking more with my recipes and don’t feel as intimidated in the kitchen literally make my month! I love each and every one of you and am so thankful for you.

And two….because how often do you buy a book and only cook a few recipes out of it? Me – all the time. I wanted to write something that you guys would be able to use OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. Every recipe in the book is fantastic and I know you’re going to love it!

We photographed / styled the book with my dream team… Matt and Adam. Food photographer / food stylist by day and best friends in the whole wide world by night. And Amy who is the prop stylist extraordinaire and sprinkled magic fairy dust on everything. I couldn’t love them anymore for helping me bring this California Girl style into the read world!

Okay!! I think that’s just about it. I CANNOT WAIT to meet you guys in real life. I can’t wait to see what you guys make. ALL MY LOVE! XOXO

    If we pre-order the book can we bring it to a signing? I’ve just been to signings before where you have to buy the book there so just want to make sure. 🙂

    • Cathy Lee Gruhn

      I used to do book Publicity (cookbooks), if you have proof of purchase you should be able to bring a pre-ordered book to an event. But to safe, each venue can supply their answers

    • Gaby

      you can pre-order and bring to the signing!!

    • Maelia

      Just to be sure, if we pre-ordered we’d still have to buy a ticket (RSVP) to come to the signing, right?

    • Gaby

      correct!! but you can get the ticket for the spices if you only need 1 copy of the book!! cant wait to meet you!

  21. sher shepps

    Gaby – so excited about your cookbook. I pre-ordered it the moment I read about it; however,
    now I want to sign up to see you here in Portland but it says that the ticket includes a copy of the book. Do I need to cancel my pre-order? I would love to tell you that I could use 2 but none of my friends like to cook!

    • Gaby

      you can buy the ticket that includes my new product line instead!! that way you get the book the day it comes out and don’t have to wait 2 months!! xx

  22. sher shepps

    so is that the spice blends that just came out – that would be awesome!

  23. Alia

    Went through the whole cookbook cover to cover last night!! Absolute perfection. Pictures with every recipe? Incredible. Different versions of recipes based on the season? Genius. Recipe ideas for entertaining? Beyond. Gaby, you’ve really outdone yourself. This book is gold and there is something for everyone! I also LOVE the amount of vegetarian recipes! This book is balance defined, staying 100% true to the What’s Gaby Cooking philosophy.

  24. Sher Shepps

    I pre-ordered my cookbook in March and have received it but have never gotten the spice/salt that was supposed to follow.

    • Gaby

      they all got sent out this week so they should be there any day! confirming you filled out the form on my website?

    • Sher Shepps

      Yes, I did. Still nothing here. Also, just had to change emails.

    • Gaby

      shoot me an email and we’ll get it squared away
