I’m not sure when I first met Annelies Zijderveld. Our paths have crossed at more food blogger gatherings than I can count and I am always happy when I spot her face in the crowd at registration or those oft-uncomfortable opening receptions.
Annelies recently published her very first book, called Steep: Recipes Infused with Tea, and is currently zigzagging across the country promoting its release. She’s going to be in Philadelphia tomorrow doing an event in the City Kitchen at Reading Terminal Market, demoing her recipe for Walnut White Bean Tea Toasts. It starts at 12 noon, runs until 1:30 pm and is free. The Cookbook Stall will be there as well, selling books.
On Saturday, Annelies will be at the Locust Moon Gallery (34 South 40th Street) from 1-4 pm, in conjunction with Alexandria Quarterly’s magazine launch. She plans on sampling the Buddha’s Hand Rooibos Marmalade there.
If you’re not in Philly and want to know if Annelies is coming to your town, follow her on Twitter or Instagram. She’s also sending out regular newsletters detailing her travels that you can subscribe to here. Her blog, The Food Poet, is a very good read as well.
