Since he was a finalist on Bravo's Top Chef Miami in 2009, Brian Malarkey has gone on to host TLC's Mega Bites, made appearances on The Today Show, and opened five restaurants in San Diego (Searsucker, Burlap, Gingham, Gabardine, and Herringbone) as executive chef and partner.

And now, Malarkey's comin' to Scottsdale. From 5 to 6:30 p.m., Friday (tomorrow), November 30, the celebu-chef will be at the recently opened Searsucker (the second location of his award-winning San Diego restaurant) to promote his new cookbook, Come Early, Stay Late!
Sounds like an early holiday gift for a Malarkey-lovin' foodie fan.
Malarkey's new cookbook features recipes from each of his five restaurants, as well as tips and tricks for creating them. (Wanna make Searsucker's Farmbird Lollipops or the Whiskey-Braised Pork with Grilled Peaches and Baconnaise at home? They're in there.)
This Friday, fans can stop by Searsucker, pick up a signed copy of the book (which retails for $29.95), and meet Malarkey in person. Drinks and tray passed bites from the cookbook will be part of the celebration.
Malarkey's Come Early, Stay Late! is also available at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe.
