We’re taking this show on the road! The cookbook book tour schedule live and I cannot wait!

OMG it’s time! Almost 2 years in the making and my 2nd cookbook is just about ready to make its official debut. 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. I’ll be updating this post with any intel over the next few months so it’s easy to find and today… it’s all about that book tour!

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!

Preorder Info:

First, it’s available for pre-order right now and because I’m all about that giveaway, we’re including a gift with your purchase. So if you order a book anytime between now and April 17th when the book officially hits shelves, you get a 3.5 ounce package of Himalayan pink sea salt from Hepp’s Salt Co! You guys know how much I’m obsessed with salt and this stuff is soooooo good. You can order the book from any retailer you like – a lot of them are listed over here for easy reference! All you have to do is fill out a quick form and you’ll get some salt delivered right to your doorstep and you can use it to make all the delicious new recipes in my cookbook! And if you already preordered, just fill out the form and you’re still getting your fancy salt!!


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. Book tour dates coming Monday. I CANNOT WAIT to meet you guys in real life. And don’t forget to pre-order. That way you’ll be the first to get the book delivered to your front door step! ALL MY LOVE! XOXO

  1. 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. 🙂

    1. 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

  2. I hope you are coming to Tucson (your old stomping grounds). I’d love to get a signed book if you make it this way.

  3. Hi! are you coming to boston? i see MA with a star on the map, but I don’t see it listed in the actual tour list…

  4. Hey Gaby!
    I didn’t see Buffalo, New York on your book tour. If you can fit Buffalo in that would be great!

  5. Hi Gaby! Would love if you could make it to Connecticut! There is an awesome independent bookstore called RJ Julia’s in Madison, CT that would be a great spot for you (and only a few hours from NYC!). So excited for your book!

  6. Please come to Ann Arbor , Michigan! We need you to bring your sunshine to the dreary Midwest. I’d love to come to a signing !

  7. I can’t wait! I think from Chicago you should just pop on over to Cincinnati. I know we’re not the *coolest* but we still have some kickass tacos + Margs in this town!!! 🙂

  8. We would love to have you in Salt Lake City! We’ve got a great food scene here and everyone loves to cook!

  9. So darn excited to get my hands on a copy of this!! Would love if you made a stop in NC! I know quite a number of people who love you!!

  10. Come to the east bay! William Sonoma in Walnut Creek, there would definitely we a good college crew there!!

  11. I just signed up to come to Nashville. I’m from Memphis, but didn’t think you’d be coming here since our WS closed 🙁 Road trip! So excited to meet you!!

  12. I am SOOOOOOOO EXCITED, to see this, to own this, to cook from this! To party down, and toast your success! Your food is rad, and so are you. DREAM PROJECT, thanks Gaby. xoxoxoxo
