Sheryl Crow fan alert!
The brainy activist-folk rocker will actually be appearing in San Francisco this Thursday night at 6 p.m.
But the unusual venue location — Book Passage at the Ferry Building — might give you a clue that it’s no ordinary event. She’ll be signing copies of, believe it or not, the new cookbook she wrote with chef Chuck White, with the in-joke name of “If It Makes You Healthy” (St. Martin’s Press).
Funny title, serious content: 125 heart-healthy recipes designed to complement your busy don’t-have-time-to-cook lifestyle.
A Crow cookbook might sound odd at first, but the idea took shape a few years ago, when the singer was battling breast cancer and understood that she had to start eating better as part of her recovery.
Like Yoda, personal chef White began to teach her how to prepare foods that are seasonal, locally grown and rich in vitamins. So “why not share her new recipes with everyone?” she thought.
Crow will return to Sonoma in actual concert at Field Of Dreams Park on May 21, on a green tour backed in part by Tom’s of Maine, who are launching a natural toothpaste called Simply White. And she’s also on/in the new Kid Rock single/video, “Collide.”
But Thursday will be a chance to get up close and personal with the lady herself.
