PAMM Hosts the Launch of Lee Brian Schrager’s Fried & True Cookbook

On Tuesday evening, I headed to PAMM to celebrate the launch of Lee Brian Schrager’s second cookbook, FRIED & TRUE: More Than 50 Recipes for America’s Best Fried Chicken and Sides. Over 250 of Miami’s most fashionable, art loving, fried-food-craving souls headed to experience true comfort food.
