My book tour continues with appearances in New York City, Milan, and London. On April 8th at 6:30pm I'm giving a multimedia presentation, "Growing Chiles in Containers" at the New York Horticultural Society, 148 West 37th Street. Details are still being worked out for the Milan appearance, but it will most likely be at a cooking school. And on May 15 in London, it's "The Pope of Peppers Meets the King of Curries" at Cafe Spice Namaste, 16 Prescott Street. At this event, which runs from 10 am to 3 pm, Pat Chapman and I will both give multimedia presentations on chile (chilli) peppers, with Pat discussing chillis in Indian cuisine while I will discuss, as usual, chile gardening. The event includes a superb luncheon. See here for more details on the London event. It will be great to see Pat and Dominique again, as it's been years since they hosted us on our tour of England--mostly Cornwall. Read about that trip here. And here's a shot of me with chilli plants in the Temperate Biome at the Eden Project, one of the largest greenhouse complexes in the world.
