If you're familiar with The Splendid Table, which airs every Sunday on KJZZ, then host Lynne Rosetto Kasper might already be a favorite part of your weekends. With her soothing voice and encyclopedic knowledge of the culinary arts -- not to mention her vivid way of describing food -- she has a special way of luring listeners into her world of delicious eats.
This weekend, you can get an extra helping at The Splendid Table, when Kasper will talk about food trends and sign copies of her books at a special event presented by Changing Hands Bookstore at the Sub-Zero Wolf Showroom in Scottsdale (15570 N. 83rd Way) from 1 to 3 p.m.
Admission ($25) includes wine and hors d'oeuvres. Call Friends of Phoenix Public Radio at 480-774-8450 to purchase tickets.
