Fried Chicken + Wine: Ludo Lefebvre, Eric Asimov Have a Book Signing
If you're not otherwise occupied this Sunday afternoon -- which would mean what, two questionable NFL games or maybe recounting some more votes in Florida -- then maybe you should consider heading over to Domaine LA for a wine and fried chicken pairing. OK, it's really a book signing in disguise, but this is hardly any book signing. And hardly any wine and fried chicken. The fried chicken will be from Ludo Lefebvre, who will be there signing his recently published book LudoBites -- with his food truck parked conveniently nearby.
And the wine will be courtesy of New York Times wine columnist and author Eric Asimov, who won't be there in real life signing his new book, How To Love Wine, but will be there in the form of flights of wine and shipped-in autographed copies of said book.
If the tech gods are happy, Asimov will also be appearing via FaceTime to discuss his wine picks. Hey, maybe Ludo can do the same thing from his truck. (Or from his motorcycle, if he'd ever take his motorcycle helmet off.) What to drink with your fried chicken? Asimov has picked out a 2010 Duplessis Chablis, 2011 Champalou Vouvray, 2009 Nusserhoff "Elda", 2010 Eric Texier Brezeme and a 2010 Brovia Barbera d'Alba "Sori del Drago".
LudoBites and Eric Asimov book signing, Ludo Truck and wine pairing: Nov. 11, 2-5 p.m. $12 for the wine flight, food available a la carte from the Ludo Truck. Books are available for purchase.
