Sidewalk Cookbook Signing with Chris Toy | Saturday, August 15

One of our most beloved cooking instructors, Chris Toy, has just published a cookbook and he’ll be at Now You’re Cooking to sign your copies. He’ll be stationed outside the store wearing a mask so there will be plenty of room for social distancing. You can buy your copy that day and have him personalize it! You’ll also have the opportunity to ask him any cooking questions.

If you don’t feel comfortable coming into the store you can pick up your copy curbside by calling 207-443-1402. 10am–1pm
