The Larkin Square Author Series is pleased to welcome Arthur Bovino, author of the new book Buffalo Everything: A Guide to Eating in the Nickel City
to speak in Larkin Square on Monday, August 20th at 5:30 p.m. Bovino will be joined by Buffalo News food writer Andrew Galarneau for a conversation about food in Buffalo.
During the past couple of years, Bovino has traveled and tasted food served throughout Buffalo. He discovered such an abundance of delicious food that Buffalo Everything is the first of two books to be published by Countryman Press. Buffalo Everything is about the city’s dining scene and history, to be followed in February 2019 by a cookbook focused on iconic local foods and Buffalo sauce-flavored comfort foods and party dishes.
Bovino is a classically trained cook passionate about fine dining—and also a self described wing nut and pizza nerd. “I’d long heard about Buffalo’s unique pizza scene, so when a friend recommended me for a project focused on a Buffalo sauce-themed cookbook, I jumped on it.” wrote Bovino in a recent blog post, “I dined at 120-plus restaurants and got a comprehensive education on the city’s food history from leading local chefs and writers. From classic Italian and Polish restaurants to New-School Buffalo cuisine, it was food discovery at its best.”
Andrew Galarneau is the food editor for the Buffalo News and writes frequently about Buffalo area restaurants and other local food related news.
“With Buffalo’s wide variety of locally owned restaurants, including in Larkinville, we know this will be a delicious conversation around new and old Buffalo favorite foods.” writes Larkin Square’s Leslie Zemsky, “Food Truck Tuesday receives a mention in the book along with dozens of other dining suggestions and observations.”
