Tuscarora cooks the book: "The Best of American Beer & Food"

Join Lucy Saunders — author of The Best of American Beer & Food — Wednesday 5 March, at a beer dinner and book signing at Tuscarora Mill in Leesburg, VA, with hosts Shawn Malone and Chef Patrick Dinh of Tuskies, and guests Hugh Sisson (and me) of Clipper City Brewing.

Chef Dinh is preparing a 6 course menu from recipes in Ms. Saunders' book (with his own special touches), paired with 6 beers from Clipper City.

Dinner begins at 7 pm. But at 6:30 pm, Lucy Saunders will be signing copies of two of her books — The Best of American Beer & Food and Grilling with Beer.

The cost of the dinner is $65 per person, inclusive. Reservations are required: call Tuscarora Mill at (703) 771-9300 and ask for Shawn or John.
