Ex-News Food Editor Janice Okun sets book signings

Veteran News Restaurant Reviewer Janice Okun will appear in area book stores in coming weeks to sign copies of her newly released memoir-cookbook, "Buffalo Cooks With Janice Okun."

It's a collection of more than 110 of the most beloved recipes published in the News during Okun's 40-year tenure as its food editor, served with a copious buffet of behind-the-scenes stories from Okun's career. Okun retired as food editor in March 2009, and still reviews restaurants weekly for the News' Gusto entertainment section on Fridays.

The 141-page volume, published by Western New York Wares, has a $14.95 cover price.

Scheduled signings:

Saturday, Oct. 16 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 4401 Transit Road, Clarence
