Nationally acclaimed author Cythnia Nims will be rolling the dice on Wednesday night at Cafe Nell to celebrate the release of her new book, Gourmet Game Night. The party-time tome serves up gastro game ideas alongside easy-to-follow recipes — like lamb and olive kebabs — that feeds the competitive spirit in any competitive eater.
BYOG (bring your own games) or choose from the pile on-site. Each table will have dice, pencils and a pad of paper and Nims will kick off the evening with a round of food trivia, but then everyone’s off on their own. Chef Andrew Garrett is preparing a special menu of recipes from Nims’ book in addition to the regular menu, but no word if Garrett will whip out his infamous short shorts for a twisted game of Twister.
