Chef Nisa Burns Coming to Austin - and a giveaway!

The folks over at PR By the Book contacted me recently to let me know that Chef Nisa Burns is headed to Austin as part of her book tour for her first cookbook, Kitchenability 101: The College Student’s Guide to Easy, Healthy and Delicious Food.  I was not familiar with Nisa or her cookbook previously, and I am a year or two (or, okay, twenty) from being a college student...but I was excited to check out a copy of Kitchenability 101 anyway. I mean, who doesn't need some more "easy, healthy & delicious" recipes?

After having flipped through a copy (courtesy of PR by the Book), I'd say Kitchenability 101 lives up to its name. It's full of super easy recipes perfect for a college student needing to feed himself or herself for the first time. And in keeping with these technological times, the book contains lots of QR codes that link to online demonstration videos - very cool!

Nisa is going to be making several appearances while she's here in town:

• On Wednesday, January 16th from 7:30 - 8:30, Nisa will be at CYC Fitness doing a free talk and cooking demo with Claire Siegel of TheSlenderStudent.com.

• At 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 19th, Nisa will be doing a cooking demo and book signing at the SFC Sunset Valley Farmer's Market.

• From 5 - 7:30 p.m. on Saturday the 19th, Nisa will be teaching a class on cooking in a small kitchen on a small budget at the Central Market Cooking School. You can enter to win a spot in this class using the Rafflecopter widget below...but hurry, the drawing takes place Wednesday at noon!

Can't make any of these events or want to check out a copy of Kitchenability 101? PR By the Book graciously gave me two copies of Kitchenability 101 to give away to Foodie is the New Forty readers. To enter, just leave a comment on this post no later than Saturday, January 19th at noon (make sure you include a way to reach you if you win!). I'll use Random.org to draw a winner sometime Saturday. Good luck!
