CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 21, 2004
Bob Skilnik, author of The Low-Carb Bartender: Carb Counts for Beers, Wine, Mixed Drinks and More (ISBN:1-59337-253-1, Adams Media, Coming This Fall) will be making an appearance at Book Expo on June 5, 2004. This gathering at Chicago's McCormick Place Convention Center is the premier event serving the US book industry.
Skilnik, who recently appeared on ESPN2's Cold Pizza morning show and Fox News Live with his first book on the subject of low-carb dieting and drinking, The Drink Beer, Get Thin Diet, will be handing out complimentary beers at the Adams Media booth while drumming up support for his newest endeavor. "Few manufacturers of adult beverages understand that their customers want this kind of information," says Skilnik. "The Low-Carb Bartender will be the only single-source reference book for the carbohydrate counts of close to 1000 beers, 400 wines, liquors, and liqueurs. Whether youÂre on Atkins, South Beach, Protein Power, or your own interpretation of a low-carb diet, or just following a controlled- carbohydrate lifestyle, thereÂs something in The Low-Carb Bartender for all of you!"
The book also features more than 200 low-carb mixed-drink recipes and tips on becoming a Low-Carb Bartender. "I'll be demonstrating how to make some low-carb drinks during upcoming television and personal appearances," says the author. "Who would believe that something as decadent as a chocolate martini could be low-carb and great tasting too?"
Skinik is represented by Lisa Ekus of Lisa Ekus Public Relations Company, LLC. Ekus has represented numerous food and drink personalities including Emiril Lagasse, Debbie Fields, and Miss Piggy. More information about The Low-Carb Bartender can be found at http://www.lcbartender.com.
