Sweet sandwiches

Ice cream and sandwiches just go together. As do the literary and culinary arts. That's precisely why this weekend's edition of the ongoing Tasty Books series is going to be so darn great: It'll feature Bay Area author Jennie Schacht promoting her newest cookbook, I Scream Sandwich: Inspired Recipes for the Ultimate Frozen Treat (Stewart, Tabori & Chang; $19.95), plus ice-cream sandwich demonstrations and tastings at Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates (1801 L Street, Suite 60), featuring recipes from the book. (Full disclosure: Tasty Books founder Anne Martin Rolke is a current SN&R food critic.) The event happens on Saturday, August 17, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person, which includes a signed copy of the cookbook. Alternatively, you can purchase three ice-cream sandwich samples for $9, or a cookbook without the tasting for $20. For more information, visit http://sactastybooks.eventbrite.com.
