To Do: “Sneaky Chef” Missy Chase Lapine is at Olsson’s

Earlier this year, author Missy Chase Lapine became more famous than her best-selling cookbook, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals, when she sued Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. Lapine accused Jessica Seinfeld of copyright infringement—alleging that Seinfeld’s much-promoted, similarly minded Deceptively Delicious ripped off her squash-disguising kiddie recipes—and accused comic Jerry Seinfeld of defamation.

Tonight, though, she’s focusing on her followup cookbook, The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on Your Man (in the Kitchen!), which includes recipes for Doctor’s Choice Chili (with zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, and spinach) and Barbell Burgers (with spinach and blueberry). And to dispel any notions that she’s a “nut job” (Jerry Seinfeld’s words, not ours), she’ll be bringing a plate of Brawny Brownies for the audience.

Missy Chase Lapine discusses and signs her book at Olsson’s, 418 Seventh St., NW, at 7 PM on Wednesday, April 9. Free. Click here for more.
