Now that we’ve put our darling restaurant to rest for another season, we’re packing our bags and heading to the Bay! Join Blake, Jen, and Lavinia at three events in the San Francisco area. We'll be signing copies of This Immeasurable Place: Food & Farming from the Edge of Wilderness, our newest narrative cookbook, as well as the freshly redesigned With a Measure of Grace: The Story & Recipes of a Small Town Restaurant!

Both are filled with delicious recipes, stunning photos, and stories about the land surrounding the restaurant (the threatened Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument) and the fascinating people who make up the community. The books tell the full story of how Blake and Jen, two-time James Beard Award semi-finalists, came to own an incredible Buddhist-based, farm-to-table restaurant in a tiny, remote town in southern Utah.

Can’t make it to the events? No worries: purchase both cookbooks for the holidays and we’ll include a set of letterpressed recipe cards as a thank-you gift! Supplies are limited, so order today!

Here's what some very awesome people are saying about the cookbooks:

"Blake Spalding and Jen Castle are alchemists, truly changing the world through their hands, their hearts, their farm, their food. In community, everything is possible. Theirs is a leadership of love." -- Terry Tempest Williams, author of The Hour of Land.

”... Filled with remarkable recipes and essays, it breathed life back into my radical, sometimes flagging hope for humanity, and is as inspiring as it is mouthwatering. We need this book now more than ever." -- Elissa Altman, author of Poor Man's Feast

"The wisdom found in the pages of this beautiful and surprising book is immeasurable. It's wisdom from the edge, from one of the most glorious hidden kitchens there is. The story of Blake and Jen, true kitchen sisters -- their cooking, friendship, and farming--is expansive and illuminating. Land, food, family, stewardship, and spirit all course through these tempting, gorgeous pages. A book that feeds us on so many levels." -- Davia Nelson, NPR's Kitchen Sisters
