The Art of Eating In

Crown Heights resident Cathy Erway is one of the new faces in local foodie culture, thanks to her blog, chronicling her adventures in not eating out in New York, and now the book version, "The Art of Eating In," which expands on those stories (read more about that here).

Even though she's eating most meals in, that doesn't mean she's not going out.

Every night of the week it seems, there's a food-related lecture, screening or cook-off. "They're happening all the time. It's really exciting," says Erway.

Along with her book launch party at the Bell House for her new book, here are some events you might find the author at in the coming weeks:
