I just HAPPENED to pass by our neighborhood Taqueria del Sol this morning as I was walking the dog and there it was, standing on the counter: the first copy of Turnip Greens & Tortillas, ready to be purchased! So I handed the leash to my husband and tapped on the door as they were preparing for the lunch crowd so I could snap this pic to mark this momentous occasion. “Hope we’ll all be millionaires by the end of the day!” the guy behind the counter laughed.
Well, that may be a stretch, but already my co-writer and the star of this show, Eddie Hernandez, and
I, are so grateful for the positive response we’ve received thus far — this month in Garden & Gun, this week in the New York Times (!), and today in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, my former employer, with a recipe story coming Thursday! Plus a Best Seller on Amazon!
So if you’re hungry for a taco today, get in line early at any of the Taqueria del Sol locations for a bite AND a book. Better yet, come see us tonight at Avid Bookstore in Athens at 6 pm, or at one of the other events listed on this site.
