And am I ever glad I did! The first thing she did was feed us chicken! She had 100 pieces of Crispy Cornflake Chicken made (recipe can be found in the book), and the event started with a feast. I'm sure you won't be surprised to learn that the chicken was absolutely delicious.
And Kathleen Flinn is absolutely delightful. Witty, yet self-effacing, she made us laugh repeatedly. She told us stories from her life, her parents' lives, and her grandparents' lives. She read an excerpt from her book. And she did a cooking demonstration, showing us how to make the absolutely delicious chicken she had fed us at the beginning of the event. By the end of the afternoon, I felt like she was a friend I had just had coffee with.
