On Monday nights, Campanile has been serving the super-popular "Family Dinner", a three-course meal served family style. The dinners highlight Mark Peel's take on comfort foods. Someone finally got him to publish a cookbook of Monday night recipes and co-authored the book with him.

Martha Rose Shulman has written over 25 cookbooks and is a regular contributor to Bon Appetit, Food and Wine, and the New York Times. Her newest venture is the Venice Cooking School. Although she writes for the New York Times, she is an Angeleno. Meet Martha Rose, who I cornered in the pastry kitchen during last night's book release party.

Stay tuned for more coverage of the cookbook release party!
