Cravings Tour: Dates, Cities and Details

Published by

Hi Folks,

As I’ve mentioned recently, in just a few short weeks I kick off the tour for my new cookbook, Mad Hungry Cravings. I’ll be traveling around the U.S. to about 15+ city tour where I’ll be doing book signings, cooking classes, in-store demonstrations, talks, fundraisers and more.

What I’d love most, especially after the great success of QVC and the valiant return of Mad Hungry to Hallmark, is to meet all of you and thank you personally for your support, so please come out and say “hi”!

I’ve posted the dates below, as well as made a special page at the top lefthand- side of the blog (right under topics) called MH Cravings Tour Dates– check back there for more information, as we update the tour with more events and details in the coming weeks.

    I’m so, so disappointed that the tour doesn’t include southern Calif! Please add San Diego to your itenerary, please! I’m Mad Crazy about Mad Hungry and your style of cooking – you’re awesome! Please consider San Diego, or even Phoenix. My daughther lives there and she is the one that turned me on to Mad Hungry! I would go to Phoenix to meet you! I also miss Everyday Food that use to be on PBS – you chefs were so inspirational and taught me so much! Is that coming back? A huge fan! Thanks for all you’re doing! With much respect and admiration, Em

    Lucinda! You’re my favorite TV chef! I love all your recipes and I’m so excited for your new book! By the time I turned on my TV to get the spurtle collection on QVC, it was sold out! Please please please come to Southern Cali! You have sooooo many fans in Los Angeles and we’d love to get a chance to meet you!

  • Sue Whittock February 27, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Hi Lucinda!
    I absolutely LOVE you and all Mad Hungry shows!
    I’ve learned so much from you, thank you !
    The schedule for your tour looks like a lot of busy, busy, traveling, traveling !!
    From East to West – North to South. Please take good care of yourself on your journeys! I know you will eat healthy , that I’m sure! So, get enough rest , and enjoy all the people and parts of our wonderful country ! Ps. I grabbed the “spurtles” on qvc before they sold out! Yay! Waiting for your new “Cravings” cookbook from Amazon when it’s available!
    Oh, before I close, do you have a place on any of your websites where I could ask you a cooking question?? I bought an old Wagner cast iron skillet that has a lot of wear and not a smooth surface ( sort of bumpy ). Is it ok to use it? Should I do any seasoning to it? It seems it was used for many years and not cleaned completely.

    I’m so thrilled that MadHungry has returned !

    How come you are not making it to Central United States? Kansas City,Mo., St. Louis, Mo., It would give me a reason to take the train to St. Louis.

  • JoAnn March 3, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    My thoughts exactly, Elisa E. P – would love if LSQ would hit Omaha on her book tour – we’re right smack in the center of the US. I would even make the drive to Kansas City. St. Paul is just too far. Bummer! 🙁

  • Patricia March 5, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Ditto re Central States! Lots of terrific and loyal fans out here. Somewhere around Chicago would be good – within an hour or so. Yes Chicagoans are particular about their hot dogs but some of us also like to try other ways for a lot of traditional foods.

    Hope you consider this for future.

    One of your oldest and long-time fans 🙂

  • Roxanne Andrew March 6, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Would love to see you in Denver too!! Maybe a second tour?? And so glad you’re back on Hallmark!!

  • Janet March 6, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Just signed up for your Dallas class! So excited!!

    • Lucinda Scala Quinn March 8, 2013 at 11:39 am

      Hi Janet,

      That’s great news! Please stop by and say hello, I’m really looking forward to meeting the Mad Hungry viewers/readers in person.


  • jack e. smith March 10, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    dear Lucinda…so glad you are back on hallmark, I can do my treadmill as I watch the show again!
    love you, jack

  • Alan March 22, 2013 at 10:42 am

    yeah! — Toronto …

    I’m impressed, I should say. Certainly rarely do I encounter a blog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is some thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am pretty pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
