‘Hungry for France’ dinner planned at Angele

By L Pierce Carson

In conjunction with the release of award-winning author Alexander Lobrano’s latest book, Napa’s Angele is hosting a “Dinner in Provence” at the downtown Napa bistro on Oct. 21.

Dinner guests will get to meet the famed French food writer and columnist for the New York Times, get an autographed copy of Lobrano’s “Hungry for France,” savor wines poured by a number of area winemakers with ties to France as well as enjoy a special menu prepared by executive chef Rogelio Garcia. Garcia’s four-course menu is based on recipes included in Lobrano’s new book.

Angele managing partner Bettina Rouas said she is thrilled to be hosting the kickoff event for Lobrano’s book tour at the restaurant at 540 Main St., Napa.

“I loved his first book, ‘Hungry for Paris’ … it was my bible when I was in Paris last year,” she said. “I met up with Alec and we had dinner together. He told me he was working on a new book about France and I suggested he launch the tour for the new book at Angele. Now it is happening.”
