Food Lover’s Book Club is a bimonthly discussion of a cookbook or food-related book led by award-winning food writer Amanda M. Faison. The free gathering takes place at the Ross-Cherry Creek Library.

Pizza. It’s one of the world’s most favorite foods, and with its ever-customizable combo of chewy crust, gooey cheese, and piled-high toppings, why shouldn’t it be? But with so many iterations, is there such a thing as pizza perfection? Join Basta chef-owner Kelly Whitaker and Amanda M. Faison for a delicious discussion that will center around Bianco, the newly released cookbook from James Beard-winning pizzaiolo Chris Bianco. Without intending to, Chris Bianco and his Phoenix pizzeria have become the center of the artisanal pizza movement. Bonus: samples!
