Free Demo and Cookbook Signing with Gabi Moskowitz (The BrokeAss Gourmet)

To commemorate the end of Girlfriend’s Getaway Month, we’re finishing off March here at The Olive Press with a delicious (and free) culinary event for all!

Gabi Moskowitz, author of the popular blog and recent cookbook The BrokeAss Gourmet, is all about good eating on the cheap—without sacrificing flavor or quality. She’ll be joining us on Saturday, March 30 for a book signing and special cooking demo! Moskowitz will prepare Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Peanut Sauce, as featured in her cookbook, plus an exclusive recipe just for the event: Blueberry-Ginger Granita. Granitas, if you’re new to them, are frozen Italian desserts, similar to sorbet but handmade and easy to whip up. They’re wonderfully light and refreshing!

The event will take place at our Sonoma location from 12:00-3:00pm on Saturday, March 30, 2013. While you’re here you can also partake in a free tour of The Olive Press (at 2:00pm), and enjoy our always complementary tasting bar.

If you can’t wait until the live book signing and cooking demo to try one of Moskowitz’s creations, enjoy this sneak peek of her Blueberry-Ginger Granita recipe. Delectable!

Blueberry-Ginger Granita


  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 small piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 tbsp sugar (or more, depending on taste)
  • 5 cups ice cubes


1)       Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until fully incorporated. The consistency should be like a snow cone, not a smoothie, so add more ice as needed to achieve the proper texture.

2)       Serve in pretty bowls or glasses with a spoon.


Makes 2-3 servings.
