Stewart Woodman, aka Shefzilla, will be signing copies of his new cookbook, Shefzilla: Conquering Haute Cuisine at Home, this Saturday at the Mill City Farmers Market and Sunday at the Kingfield Farmers Market.

Woodman’s restaurant, Heidi’s, was gutted by a fire last February in southwest Minneapolis. That morning, Woodman learned he was named a semifinalist for Best Chef: Midwest by the prestigious James Beard Foundation. Heidi’s was named one of the “50 Best New Restuarants in the U.S.”  by Travel & Leisure Magazine and Best Restaurant in Minneapolis by City Pages.

Undaunted by the fire, Woodman turned his time and energy to cooking on a smaller scale–at home, for family and friends. He learned to adjust his tools and ingredients, and the result is chef-quality fare suitable for the home kitchen. Woodman shares his decades of cooking knowledge in meal-sized bites in Shefzilla: Conquering Haute Cuisine at Home.

For an inside look at Shefzilla, check out Rick Nelson’s Q & A with Woodman in the Star Tribune, The Heavy Table’s week of cooking from the cookbook, A Closer Look at Flyover Land’s review, Dara Moskowitz-Grumdahl’s review on Minnesota Monthly, and Woodman demonstrating how to make lettuce soup on Twin Cities Live and talking up the new restaurant with Angela Davis on WCCO (key in “Woodman” to play video).
