Authored by mother Corky and sisters Lori, Dana and Tracy, ‘The Pollan Family Table’ contains more than 100 dishes as well as gorgeous photos and tips on technique. This week, the Pollan clan come together for a prix fixe dinner and book signing on Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Spinster Sisters Restaurant, 401 South A St., Santa Rosa. 6pm. $95.
