-Chili Madness Tour Continues

by Jane Butel™

 Chili Madness continues and has been a great and rewarding experience!  It is so wonderful seeing so many of my alumni friends and book owner buddies.  In fact in many of my book signing events, I have been so pleased to see book owners of Chili Madness and other books I have written bring in the stained, often very damaged copies of my books to get me to autograph them.  Of course they always buy the new revised, expanded book too—oftentimes many copies of it for friends and family.

I am reminded of one very nice lady at the St Louis, Mo signing at the new Left Bank Bookstore, where she brought her first printing of Chili Madness in a plastic bag.  She had driven 2 hours to get to the signing and it was just fabulous to see her and the so well used copy of the book.

Last weekend I was in beautiful Fair Hope, Alabama, a gorgeous gulfside town all decked out in beautiful flowers along the main street.  The book signing there was at a huge chili cookoff, which was just a hoot.  Right behind us they even had a mechanical bull bucking away with all manner of kids and adults.

This coming week, I will be at the Smithsonian Museum in the Atrium room presenting Chili and chiles along with New Mexican wines presented by Jim Hammond, a Southwestern wine authority.  The wines are donated by  Gruet and Southwestern Wines, both of New Mexico.  This will be a very special event.  For more information, phone the Smithsonian at 202-633-3030.  All attending will be treated to a special chili dinner featuring my famous Bowl o Red, Mexican Tortilla Chli, corn and Bacon Chowder-Chili, apple Blue Cheese Slaw, Blue Corn parfait Bread and Creamy Margarita Pie.  Hope to see you there!
