Mark this one on your calendar: Paula Wolfert, the queen of Mediterranean cooking, will be speaking at the Culinary Historians of Southern California meeting Saturday at the Central Library downtown.

Wolfert, who has probably done more than any other person to teach Americans about the cuisines of the area, will be giving a presentation based on her newest book, ‘The Foods of Morocco,’ a fresh return to the cooking that first brought her to public attention in 1973 with her first book, ‘Couscous and Other Good Food From Morocco.’


The event will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Mark Taper Auditorium at the Los Angeles Public Library’s central branch, located at 630 W. 5th St. Admission is free and there will be refreshments and discussion afterward. Reservations are not necessary, but if you have questions you can call (323) 663-5407.
