The Sisterly Love Collective, an alliance of several prominent women restaurateurs and food entrepreneurs, have announced its upcoming “Cookbooks & Convos” series.
The series will feature a number of events, including book signings, happy hours, demos, collaborative dinners, and more.
The alliance is co-hosted by Jennifer Carroll, Sofia Deleon, Jill Weber, and Ellen Yin.
“Cookbooks & Convos” is inspired by the beloved Philadelphia program, “The Book and The Cook.” It lasted 23 years, from 1984 to 2007, and provided a platform for cookbook authors to collaborate with Philadelphia restaurants.
The Sisterly Love Collaborative is reinvigorating the essence of the program with its “Cookbook & Convos” series, adding a twist featuring female artists and talents.
From September 22 to October 24, the “Cookbooks & Convos” series will feature a full line-up of events with some of the top female culinary talent from across the country.
